It’s an equal opportunity plague of sorts, affecting nearly every single person at some point between the ages of 12 and 17. But the agony of acne isn’t limited to the young. To their dismay, many older women find themselves simultaneously battling menopause, wrinkles and PIMPLES. Adult acne can strike at any age and can be difficult to control. It is a surprisingly common problem – 25% of men and 50% of women will experience adult acne at some point in their lives.
Is there a cure for acne?
There is no “acne cure” but there are many acne treatment options available that can control and improve acne breakouts and acne blemishes. A consultation with our nurse practitioner or physician is needed to determine the best treatment plan for each individual. Treatment options could include: topical products (SKINMEDICA®, OBAGI®, LIFELINE®, ZO®) microdermabrasion, deep pore cleansing facial, acne chemical peel, infusion treatment, SR pulse light treatment, or photo dynamic therapy.
For those dealing with acne scars, we have a variety of treatments that can improve the appearance, depth, and color of the acne scars. Chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion and injectable cosmetic fillers have all been used successfully in treating different types of acne scars.
