Since cases of acne are as individual as the people who suffer from them, some therapies are better suited to certain individuals. Our on-site physician will consult with you at length to determine what combination of acne-targeted skin care, prescription medications, and/or procedures provided in our office will likely offer you the most benefit. Our acne treatments can include a combination of the following therapies:
MicroPeels – A micropeel consists of a microdermabrasion, during which the outer layer of dead skin is removed, combined with a superficial chemical peel. Micro peels minimize the appearance of acne and maximize and expedite the results that can be achieved through proper skin care. We only perform the most superficial of chemical peels, so there is minimal downtime. They are recommended in a series where they are performed every 1 to 2 weeks with maintenance treatments recommended to maintain results.
Omnilux Lights – The Omnilux blue light is specifically targeted to the bacteria in acne lesions. When the bacteria absorbs the blue light, it causes a chemical reaction that ultimately kills the bacteria. The Omnilux red light penetrates deeper within the skin to kill bacteria and also lowers the level of inflammation, irritation and redness in the skin. We recommend Omnilux acne treatments twice a week for 4 weeks (8 treatments total). The blue and red light treatments are completely painless with no known side effects.
