Acne, a common skin condition that often rears its head during adolescence but can persist into adulthood, is a source of frustration for many. Whether it's persistent breakouts, lingering scars, or the ongoing battle against blemishes, the quest for clear and radiant skin is a universal one. Fortunately, modern dermatology offers a range of effective treatments to address acne concerns comprehensively. In this guide, we'll explore a variety of cutting-edge acne treatments, each designed to combat existing breakouts, improve or eliminate acne scars, and prevent future eruptions.

Comprehensive Acne Solutions with Blu-U Treatment and Levulan

At our clinic, we pride ourselves on leveraging cutting-edge developments in light technology to provide effective acne treatments for our patients. One such advanced therapy, known as Blu-U treatment or photodynamic therapy (PDT), has proven to be gentle, efficient, and well-tolerated by our patients. During a brief 15-minute session held 1-2 times per week, patients sit beneath a non-laser visible blue light device. This innovative treatment specifically targets acne by eliminating the bacteria within oil glands, a common culprit behind breakouts. While Blu-U treatment is suitable for mild to moderate acne, in more severe cases, we incorporate Levulan (aminolevulinic acid) to enhance skin responsiveness to the Blu-U light. The application of Levulan, left on for an hour, ensures minimal discomfort, minimal adverse effects, and excellent results. This comprehensive approach allows us to address varying degrees of acne, offering our patients the promise of clear and healthy skin they've always desired.

BOTOX® Treatments for Acne?

While BOTOX® is widely known for its ability to smooth out wrinkles, its applications extend beyond the realm of aging gracefully. In recent years, BOTOX® has emerged as a surprising ally in the fight against acne. How? By targeting sebum production, the oil responsible for clogging pores and triggering acne, BOTOX® treatments can effectively reduce breakouts. This non-surgical procedure not only brightens the face but also provides a unique approach to managing acne for those seeking an alternative or complementary treatment.

Fraxel 1927 - Harnessing Laser Power for Acne Solutions

For those looking for a non-invasive, anti-aging solution that doubles as an effective acne treatment, Fraxel 1927 offers a compelling option. This laser treatment stimulates collagen production and resurfaces the skin, addressing both acne and the signs of aging. Clinically proven to be safe and effective, Fraxel 1927 enhances natural beauty by promoting skin rejuvenation. By targeting the underlying causes of acne, such as uneven skin texture and scarring, this laser therapy offers a holistic approach to banishing acne-related woes.

IPL Photorejuvenation - A Versatile Weapon Against Acne

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photorejuvenation has become a popular choice for those seeking an age-defying laser skin treatment with the added benefit of acne management. This non-invasive procedure addresses a spectrum of skin concerns, including wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. IPL works by delivering pulses of light energy into the skin, targeting pigment and stimulating collagen production. The result is not only improved skin tone and texture but also a reduction in acne-related imperfections, providing a comprehensive solution for those battling both aging and acne.

Tackling Acne Scars with Chemical Peels

One of the enduring challenges of dealing with acne is the aftermath in the form of scars. Chemical peels offer a customizable remedy to revive and regenerate smoother, more youthful skin. By applying a solution to the skin that exfoliates the outer layer, chemical peels encourage the growth of new, healthier skin. This process is particularly effective for reducing the appearance of acne scars, age spots, and wrinkles. As an added benefit, chemical peels contribute to ongoing skin health by promoting cell turnover and collagen production.

In the journey to achieve radiant and blemish-free skin, our clinic embraces the forefront of dermatological innovation. From the unexpected efficacy of BOTOX® in managing breakouts to the transformative power of Fraxel 1927 and IPL Photorejuvenation, we've explored diverse strategies for banishing acne-related concerns. Additionally, our commitment to comprehensive care includes advanced treatments like Blu-U, using non-laser visible blue light, and Levulan for more severe cases. This multifaceted approach, tailored to individual needs, ensures minimal discomfort, minimal adverse effects, and excellent results. As we continue to pioneer cutting-edge solutions, our goal remains unwavering: to empower our patients with the clear, healthy skin they've always desired.

When performed by qualified professionals, combination therapies are generally safe. Dermatologists customize treatment plans to minimize risks and optimize results.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
