Acne Treatment & ACNE Scarring
The term acne covers several conditions including clogged pores [whiteheads and blackheads], pimples and deeper cysts. Acne can occur almost anywhere on the body and it can afflict people of any age. Often resulting in acne scar redness, which is damage the blemish leaves behind within the deeper layers of the skin, causing a breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Without treatment, serious and permanent acne scarring may result. Acne can have a devastating impact on a person’s self-esteem and can result in social withdrawal, embarrassment and depression. However, this debilitating condition can be vastly improved with the proper acne dermatology treatment system.
Cosmetic dermatology acne treatment must be custom tailored to each patient’s needs and lifestyle. A combination of home skin care regimens with office procedures is recommended. Patients have a number of excellent acne skin treatment options at the Kopelson Clinic including acne laser treatment, IPL photofacial treament and photodynamic therapy. In some cases, an acne chemical peel or acne surgery can be recommended.
When these procedures are used, harsh systemic medications can often be avoided.
