don’t let acne leave its mark on you

Acne and acne rosacea are common problems that plague both women and men in their 20’s and beyond. (And you thought you would outgrow it!) Routine medical treatment of these disorders is covered by insurance. However, if you have been unresponsive to routine therapies, then superficial chemical peelings, or Isolaze treatments may help you. We can also educate you about lifestyle changes and skin care routines that will improve your condition.

What is Dermabrasion?

Acne scars respond well to dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a superficial surgical technique for reducing acne scars by removing the topmost layers of scarred skin, leaving it supple and vibrant. Removing the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and a portion of the inner (dermis) layer of skin promotes new collagen growth.Depending on the severity and depth of facial scarring to be treated, dermabrasion can be done superficially or deeply. It can even be coupled with a laser resurfacing procedure with a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, the most up-to-date and innovative technique to remove facial scarring and rejuvenate sun-damaged facial skin.Only one dermabrasion procedure is needed and results can last for more than ten years. Typically there is one to two weeks of downtime depending on how deep the resurfacing was performed.

What are Isolaze Treatments?

The Isolaze is a unique device that uses broadband light and vacuum to cleanse and purify your pores deeply and painlessly from the inside out without downtime or oral medications. MultIPL Hair Removal treatments are usually necessary to realize its full therapeutic effect.
