If you have ongoing acne breakouts or acne scars, we offer personalized treatments to help you achieve smooth, acne-free skin. Our medical providers analyze and target the root cause of acne to help you achieve a smooth and glowing complexion without acne or acne scars.
Why Does Acne Occur?
Acne breakouts usually occur because of the collection of excess sebum, dead skin cells, debris, and other pollutants in the pores of your skin. Acne-causing bacteria, such as p.acnes, can also lead to inflammation and cystic acne.
Types of Treatments for Acne
Face Reality Skincare
At-home skincare with medical-grade products is essential to the fight against acne. Face Reality Skincare is an award-winning skincare brand that offers skincare products personalized according to each individual’s unique skin type. Our medical providers carefully analyze your skin type and offer a tailor-made regimen of acne-fighting skincare products to cleanse, moisturize, soothe, and calm the skin, minimizing the risk of acne breakouts.
A chemical peel is one of the most popular and effective treatments for acne. During a chemical peel, a specialized chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the dead skin cells to peel off, revealing fresh, new skin beneath. Chemical peels are an excellent treatment for acne because they remove the dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Furthermore, chemical peels also kill acne-causing bacteria to alleviate inflammation.
HydraFacial MD is a versatile treatment that can be customized to each individual’s needs, but the basic process involves using a special device to deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This removes all the dead skin cells, dirt, and oil that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Once the skin is clean, the medical provider applies a unique cocktail of skincare products and serums that kill the acne-causing bacteria and moisturize the skin.
IPL, or intense pulsed light, Photofacial is a treatment that uses pulses of light energy to improve the skin’s appearance. The light targets the underlying layers of skin without damaging the top layer. This makes IPL an ideal acne treatment, as it can kill the p.acnes bacteria that cause acne without damaging your skin. IPL Photofacial is usually done as a series of 3 to 5 sessions spaced a few weeks apart.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that involves using laser energy to remove the uppermost layers of skin, revealing smoother and softer skin underneath. This treatment removes all the dead skin cells, debris, and oil residue from the skin, thus removing the primary impetus for acne breakouts. Furthermore, this treatment stimulates collagen production to heal acne scars and make your skin look smoother.
