Waking up in the morning and finding a new pimple in the mirror can be frustrating and make you feel self-conscious until it finally disappears. Anyone who has struggled with acne knows that drugstore products or those seen on TV don’t always work as advertised. Real solutions for battling difficult acne require a more advanced approach.
Acne is a problem that affects not only teenagers. In fact, with nearly 85 percent of all Americans affected by acne at some point in their lives, it is the most common skin concern seen by dermatologists. It can be particularly frustrating for women who are dealing with the signs of aging at the same time as breakouts on the chin. We often hear “It’s just not fair!” to have both wrinkles and pimples.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we take acne seriously. The path to clear skin starts with an in-depth consultation. After a thorough discussion of previous skin care, treatments, and a skin evaluation, we provide you with a customized treatment plan to reduce acne and restore a clear complexion.
For certain types of acne, laser and light-based treatments have proven to be effective and require little to no downtime. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and other low-level light treatments may also be suggested to open clogged pores and reduce discoloration and inflammation caused by acne. To enhance and maintain the improvements gained by in-office treatments, a customized skin care regimen tailored to the particular type of acne is prescribed to support the progress at home.
For some, acne can have lingering effects on the skin once the breakouts have stopped. Many men and women struggle with the appearance of permanent acne scars. Using effective treatments like microneedling, Infini™ Radiofrequency Microneedling, or Fraxel™ Dual non-ablative skin rejuvenation, our Capital Laser & Skin Care team can improve your overall complexion and can also lessen the indentations that result from acne scarring.
