Acne & Acne Scarring Pennington and Princeton
At any age acne is a difficult disease to deal with. With its inherent ability to cause us to look our worst at times when we need to look our best, it has an ongoing effect on our self esteem and our mood.
There are many different approaches to the treatment of acne. Starting with the least aggressive approach of simply changing our home care regimen, we can sometimes see a significant improvement in our skin. Using an appropriate regimen of medical grade skin care products can be simple, easy to use and inexpensive.
The next level of treatment might include medical spa therapies such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion or infusion microdermabrasion. These treatment can clear up breakouts remarkably. These treatments need to be continued in an ongoing biweekly or monthly regimen in order to maintain their effect.
The most aggressive approach to acne is a procedure called PhotoDynamic Therapy. For those tough cases of cystic acne that are accompied by the risk of scarring and hyperpigmentation, photodynamic therapy offers a truly effective treatment option. This combination of topical prescription medication with laser activation can clear acne on a long term basis, preventing scarring and leaving skin smooth and supple.
