Acne: Your Face's Journey to Clear Skin

What is Acne?

Acne is something many of us struggle with, and it can cause distress in our daily lives. Acne is a build-up of sebum under the skin that can lead to inflammation & infection. Without appropriate care and treatment acne can continue to wreak havoc on our skin.

 

What Causes Acne?

There are many causes for acne from your personal skin care routine, stress, hormones, poor food choices, and environmental factors.

 

A personalized consult with the medical team at Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine can help you determine the root cause of your acne. The medical staff at Jazzi will then develop a personalized plan of care directed at treating active acne, preventing further flare-ups, and maintaining healthy and radiant skin.

 

Treatments for Acne:

At Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine we believe in combination therapy, which means safely combining specific treatments to reach excellent results. We develop a personalized treatment plan for each one of our patients.

 

Skin Care

First we will review your current skin care routine and make modifications that are personalized to your skin type.

-Salicylic Acid

 

-Benzoyl Peroxide

 

Laser Therapy

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a laser treatment that we offer that helps control the bacteria production under the skin to prevent further acne breakouts. There is no downtime with the IPL treatment for acne treatment and the procedure can be repeated every two weeks for maximum effect.

 

Diode is a laser that is frequently used for laser hair removal. However, it can be used in the treatment of acne as well. It decreases the size of hair follicles where acne typically originates.

 

Peels

Chemical peels can be used to treat acne by helping the body shed old skin cells to generate new skin in its place. In addition, chemical peels help resurface the skin which gives the added benefit of improving discoloration and texture issues.

 

Medications

As a medical practice, our team of providers are skilled at assessing and treating acne with over the counter and prescription medications if needed.

 

-Differin Gel: over the counter retinol treatment for acne

-Retin A: FDA approved for the treatment of Acne and Anti-aging, speeds up skin cell turn over process, prescription required.

-Antibiotics: Can be used to treat the infectious process of acne, can be prescribed as a topical cream or gel or can be an oral antibiotic, prescription required.
