Looking for an acne treatment dermatologist who will listen to your concerns? At Perfect Skin Center, we specialize in rejuvenating and renewing your complexion. Acne is a complex skin condition that requires high–quality treatments. You can find that with us.
We offer a few different acne treatment options. During your skin consultation, we will evaluate your skin and medical history to help you choose the best treatments.
What Causes Acne Breakouts?
Some patients struggle with deep, painful acne. Others cannot seem to get rid of blackheads and small pimples. No matter what type of acne you struggle with, there is no doubt that it can be frustrating.
There are many common causes of acne breakouts. Once we get to the root of your skin’s problems, we can effectively treat them.
Genetics greatly affect how much acne you develop in your adult years. Most people get acne in their teenage years, but if it continues into adulthood, there is a large chance that it is genetic.
If others in your family struggle with adult acne that just won’t go away, you probably inherited the problem. Our effective acne treatments allow you to achieve clearer skin despite your genetics.
Your hormones control how much oil your skin releases throughout the day. Excess oil on your skin can clog your pores and form acne. If you struggle with hormonal problems and fluctuations, chances are your acne is hormonal as well. This is why pre-teens and teenagers suffer from many breakouts during those years of their lives.
What you eat matters when it comes to the appearance of your skin. Eating a lot of junk food with refined sugars and oils can make acne breakouts worse. The toxins in these foods are released through your pores, which can lead to painful pimples. Diet is just one factor in acne breakouts, so it is important to examine other causes as well.
Laser Skin Resurfacing: Treat Old Acne Scars
One of our most popular acne treatments is Sciton laser skin resurfacing. These treatments break down scar tissue left behind by severe breakouts in the past. The appearance of acne scars can make it look like you are still broken out, even if you aren’t. To get rid of acne scars for good, opt for our laser skin resurfacing treatments.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
We use a powerful laser to target multiple layers of your skin and get rid of scar tissue. The laser reaches the top layer of your skin first, which may contain pigment and some scar tissue. When exposed to a high-powered laser beam, these skin problems will fade away.
Our laser treatments also target the middle layer of your skin, where the majority of acne scar tissue is. Topical products like creams and serums cannot reach this layer, which is why laser skin resurfacing is the best option for getting rid of acne scars.
Sciton laser skin resurfacing treatments are generally comfortable for patients. The laser is equipped with cooling technology, so you won’t feel much as the laser gets to work on your complexion!
Thermage Acne Treatments
Thermage acne scar treatments use non-invasive heating methods to even your skin tone and get rid of scarring. The heat generated by Thermage treatments also stimulates collagen production.
When your skin produces collagen, these fibers renew and restructure your complexion. As a result, your skin tone will be clearer and more even. New skin fibers will replace acne scar tissue and unwanted pigment.
Many patients like Thermage treatments because they are non-invasive, meaning nothing enters your body. The Thermage device heats the water molecules in your skin, allowing new collagen fibers to surface. Your complexion will be more firm and elastic after these treatments.
TCA CROSS Acne Treatments
If you are someone with a few “problem spots” on your face, TCA CROSS acne treatments are for you. We apply trichloroacetic acid to areas with acne scars to rejuvenate your skin. This skin-safe acid stimulates collagen production to renew the scarred parts of your complexion.
This treatment works best when applied to a few scattered acne scars across your complexion. Over a few sessions, your skin will start to even out and smooth over the acne scars. You can get a clear complexion again with these treatments.
Microneedling: Total Skin Rejuvenation
Microneedling is a wonderful tool for reducing acne marks and dissolving scar tissue. During microneedling sessions, we use a handheld skin pen that has tiny needles on the end. We roll the needles over your complexion to create tiny puncture wounds.
Your body responds to these small puncture wounds by generating new collagen and elastin fibers. These skin fibers replace scar tissue and uneven pigment. If you want to totally rejuvenate your complexion and get smooth, even skin, microneedling is the treatment for you.
Microneedling addresses many skin concerns at once. Fresh skin will replace the unwanted pigment from acne scars and past breakouts. Any other pigment problems will fade or disappear completely after microneedling treatments.
Best of all, we ensure your comfort during each session by using a topical numbing cream. All you have to do is relax while we renew your complexion and eliminate acne marks.
