Acne Treatment

Published on: January 28, 2014

Acne often affects adolescents and adults alike and for many is a very frustrating skin condition.  In addition to being unsightly, it often impacts the patient’s confidence and self esteem.  However, there is no need to suffer from acne, when there are a number of highly effective treatment options available, including chemical peels, clarifying facial treatments and Laser Genesis treatment. Often the individual acne scar treatment options are combined, in order to provide a customized treatment plan for the individual patient, which will maximize results!

Patients suffering from mild to moderate acne often achieve excellent results, using either chemical peels or facial treatments.  Chemical peels are effective in treating acne, as well as other skin conditions simultaneously.  The number of peels, as well as the intensity of the peel, will depend on the severity of the acne.  Clarifying facial treatments, which include deep cleansing and extensive extractions to unclog pores, are also very effective in treating mild acne.

The Genesis Laser has also been highly effective in treating stubborn or refractory acne.  The treatment is non-invasive, comfortable and reduces the redness and enlarged pores that often result from acne.  Optimal results are often achieved after a series of 6 treatments, spaced a month a part.  Best yet, there is no recovery time and patients are able to immediately resume normal activities.  In addition, patients are able to use make up and other cosmetics immediately after treatment.  As with chemical peel, the Genesis laser treatment can also address other skin conditions, in addition to acne, at the same time.
