Do you find pimples cover up your beautiful face and body no matter how many products you use? It might be time for you to try something different. Not only is acne embarrassing, but it can also really hurt your self-esteem. Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that have proven to successfully get rid of acne and give patients clear skin. It’s time to transform your appearance and life with a different kind of acne treatment. Here are the non-surgical procedures we recommend.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy For Getting Rid of Acne
If you’re looking to get rid of your acne without pain, drugs or downtime, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy might be the best option for you. IPL is a revolutionary treatment that improves moderate to severe inflammatory acne in one of the safest ways possible. Using a broad-spectrum light, the treatment stimulates collagen growth, breaks down pigment, decreases blood vessels and shrinks sebaceous glands, leaving you with smoother and brighter skin.
Typically, you’ll need three to six IPL treatments spaced two to four weeks apart for optimal results. If you have severe acne, you may need treatments every week or two weeks to get your acne under control, and monthly treatments thereafter to keep your skin clear.
IPL Therapy Combined with ReFirme for Clearer Skin
At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, we uniquely use IPL therapy with ReFirme, a laser skin tightening treatment, to further improve acne-prone skin. Like IPL therapy, ReFirme is a virtually painless, safe and quick treatment with no downtime. During the treatment, a combination of bipolar radio frequency and light is used to heat the dermal tissue in the targeted treatment area. When performed with an IPL treatment, this process reduces acne and smoothes the skin.
Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT Therapy) for Complex Acne Cases
For those of who have severe and complex acne, Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) Therapy can help. DOT Therapy uses a fractional CO2 laser to shrink sebaceous glands, blend pigment and trigger collagen growth while improving scars and skin quality.
Other than its results, one of the best aspects of this treatment is that it can be tailored to your needs. If you’re looking to have little downtime, lower settings can be used. If, on the other hand, you have severe skin issues, we will utilize more powerful settings. The procedures are always quick, effective and performed in office.
Anti-Inflammatory Injection Therapy for Cysts and Inflamed Acne
If you suffer with cysts and inflamed acne, anti-inflammatory therapy can help by rapidly reducing your inflammation and lowering the pain you may experience with deep cysts. These injections can also painlessly stop the cyst from rupturing, which in turn prevents scarring. How does it do this? The drug that is injected into your acne fights off the bacteria in your skin that forms the inflamed acne or cyst.
Within a week after your injection therapy, you should notice that the appearance of your cyst and inflammation has been diminished and your skin texture should be improved. This treatment is mostly non-invasive and is very quick.
Skin Refining Treatments and Care
Along with injection and laser therapy, there are other cosmetic treatments that can safely and effectively reduce your acne. These include the following:
- Medical Grade Peels include retinoic and salicylic acids, which comfortably exfoliate your skin and don’t burn it.
- Acne Facials & Microdermabrasion exfoliate, nourish and balance your skin to control your acne and reduce your risk of breaking out.
- Medical Grade Skin Care Products contain safe and proven ingredients that effectively keep your skin healthy and reduce acne.
- Acne Spot Treatments use a prescription strength diuretic to help prevent and control your acne.
