How Bay Area patients can seek treatment for pimple scars

Treatment for pimple scars

Pimple scars are often a concern of patients in the Bay Area who have struggled in the past with severe acne. Acne is a condition of the skin that affects adults as well as teenagers-in fact, Dr. Christine Lee continues to see more and more adults coming into her practice seeking assistance with acne. Though some patients can address acne with over-the-counter products, others need the help of a quality board certified dermatologist to develop a treatment plan that may include prescription products and regular therapies such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser treatments.

Patients in the Bay Area who are dealing with active acne or pimple scars can get assistance from TThe Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Dr. Christine Lee is a board certified dermatologist who works closely with physician assistants to give patients the treatments they require to heal their skin and improve their body. Acne treatment, as well as pimple scar treatment, is commonly completed in her practice.

Patients must first schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Christine Lee during which a thorough evaluation will assist her in deciding the best course of action. Patients who have active acne are encouraged to control it first before undergoing acne scar treatment as future blemishes can inhibit progress and cause even more unwanted scarring.

Once patients have worked out a skin care routine that assists them in reducing their acne concerns, Dr. Christine Lee then speaks to them about the options they have available. After determining the type of pimple scar, patients are then introduced to the treatments that can be used to address them. Some patients may benefit from dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, while others may be better suited for chemical peels and laser therapies. Patients with very deep scars may even use dermal fillers to add volume to these depressed areas and maintain a youthful appearance and even texture and tone to the skin.

Patients troubled by pimple scars who are interested in effective treatment are encouraged to call Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to schedule their first appointment with her quality team.
