There are several reasons acne sufferers don’t always seek treatment for this common skin condition — they may think they’re too old, that treatment won’t be effective, that it’ll be too difficult, or even that what they have isn’t acne.
That’s unfortunate, because our Orlando-area acne patients at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center are benefiting from a wide range of currently available anti-acne treatments, including facials and peels. Even if you’ve been told at some point in your life that a dermatologist can’t help your acne any further, we encourage you to come in and see what your options are now. We incorporate the latest advances in medicine, skin care and dermatology into our practice and always try to find the best-individualized plan to treat each person.
Acne can be a tough condition to deal with, leaving both scars on your skin and your self-esteem. It can affect people of all ages and skin types. But, there are effective acne treatments for every patient, and here are some of the ways we can help.
Getting a facial treatment done is sometimes thought of as a relaxing, luxury experience — and we do try to make it a comfortable, friendly process! But there’s a lot more to an anti-acne facial than that. Skin cleansing starts it off, then we use exfoliation to rid your skin of dirt, dead skin cells and clogged pores that can lead to acne. For some cases, we use an extraction process to get whiteheads and blackheads out of your skin and on their way to healing. Finally, a gentle facial massage can be used to promote fast skin healing and reduce stress that can also worsen acne breakouts. Depending on the patient, an anti-acne facial also may include the application of topical creams or medications.
A chemical peel may sound like an extreme acne treatment option, but in fact, our medically-supervised peels are proven to fight tough acne and soften or reduce acne scarring you may already have. The peel consists of naturally-occurring acids that gently break through damaged and diseased skin to reveal new, fresh skin underneath and clear up both severe acne and visible old scars. We use anti-acne medication during the peel to make a huge difference and bring our patients brighter, clearer skin with less visible scarring. Peels also can be a great solution if you have multiple skin problems, such as sun damage, signs of aging, rough skin or old scarring along with acne. We can customize our peels and facials to each individual’s needs. Our peels are non-invasive, don’t require much downtime afterward, and our patients report good results with significant improvement in their acne!
