Find the best acne treatment with the professionals in Walnut Creek

It’s not unusual for patients to come to The Skin & Laser Treatment Institute after experiencing acne. You may be frustrated over OTC cleansers and other products that didn’t make a difference in the appearance or feel of your skin. You’re not the problem; the problem is companies that develop acne medication only with younger patients in mind.

The Best Acne Treatment in Walnut Creek at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute considers your specific needs and personal characteristics. For example, teenagers tend to develop acne across the entire face due to oiliness brought on by puberty. Adult women may notice tender, red spots around the jaw, mouth, and chin. Changing estrogen levels during periods, pregnancy, and menopause may be to blame. As cell turnover slows, your spots may take longer to heal than they did in the past and can be complicated by other age-related issues: prolonged redness, sensitivity, dryness, and hyperpigmentation.

Professional skincare to the rescue

Dr. Lee and the skin specialists understand the differences between adult and teenaged acne, and have a myriad products, medications, and procedures to safely and effectively treat and prevent patients’ outbreaks. A product that you used in childhood may be ineffective now that you’re older because it’s designed for young oily skin. In fact, these products can make dry adult skin and acne worse, producing more inflammation and increasing the odds that zits will leave behind lasting reminders like scars.

Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Lee may recommend:

  • Prescription products and medications that contain retinoid to unplug follicles
  • Hormonal therapies alone or in conjunction with other medications and therapies
  • Procedures ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasion

No single treatment is best for all patients, nor may a single product or therapy be best for you. Call (925) 528-0117 to schedule a consultation.
