Acne is not just a skin condition that teenagers struggle with. Every year, Dr. Lee sees hundreds of patients come into The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute with adult acne. From mild to severe, acne can be embarrassing to patients of all ages. Therefore, Dr. Lee is committed to providing solutions that work. Many patients that seek her advice have already tried over the counter treatments and special face washes. These products can only do so much before a patient needs to seek professional assistance from a dermatologist.
Everyone’s acne is different, just as everyone’s skin is different. Not every treatment will work for every patient. Developing a treatment plan that takes into account the patient’s skin will provide the most effective results. Here are just a few of the solutions that Dr. Lee uses to treat her patients who are dealing with acne:
This treatment is done to address a number of skin conditions, such as uneven skin tone, color, hyperpigmentation, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. It polishes the upper layer of the skin to bring forth fresh skin underneath. In addition to acne, this treatment can brighten and improve anyone’s skin.
Dead skin and problem areas can be removed through chemical peels. A specific mixture of ingredients is applied to the patient’s face to remove and clear the skin of impurities. It is then cleaned off to reveal healthy skin from below. Sun protection is important after chemical peels to protect this fragile, new skin.
Laser and Light Therapies
Many laser light therapies can assist in improving the skin’s surface. When it comes to oil and inflammation produced from acne, many of these procedures can lessen the appearance of acne and improve the skin’s texture and tone. Some of these treatments include blue light therapy, pulsed light and heat energy therapy, and photodynamic therapy.
Dr. Lee also has a number of treatments that can address damage caused by acne. Acne scars are unsightly and can be embarrassing for patients as they age. Various treatments can be used to lessen the appearance of these scars over time and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
