Acne Skin Care Treatments

Acne Skin Care treatments include two main categories, topical or systemic. Topical acne skin care treatments include Benzoyl Peroxide, alpha hydroxy acids, topical antibiotics, Retin-A, and other cleansers, soaps, or astringents. Systemic acne skin care treatments include oral antibiotics, isotretinoin (Accutane), or hormonal therapies.

A combination of treatments is usually ascribed in order to target all four of the acne contributors. These acne skin care treatments target the four main factors that contribute to acne - Comedogenesis, Sebum production, P. acnes (the bacteria), and inflammation.

Perfect Skin Laser Center offers the most advanced acne skin care treatments available today. We provide alternatives to accutane when traditional acne skin care therapies have failed. We offer complimentary acne skin care consultations to help you get on the right path to Perfect Skin.

Acne Skin Care Treatments


          Before Thermage treatment                           After Thermage treatment

The FDA approved Thermage procedure heats the water in overactive sebaceous glands causing a mild thermal injury that changes the activity and function of the glands. Shortly after the first acne treatment, you will start to see a reduction in acne lesions. This treatment also improves the appearance of atrophic acne scars.

Acne treatment sessions take about 30-60 minutes
1-3 acne treatments recommended at 6-12 week intervals
Slight erythema and swelling may occur and usually resolves in 2-12 hours
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT )
Levulan PDT results in significant improvement in moderate to severe cystic acne. Levulan acne treatment inactivates the bacteria that trigger acne, exfoliates the skin to unclog pores, and decreases the activity of overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. This is exciting because sebaceous glands are the root cause in the formation of acne so it has a long lasting effect even on severe acne.

Levulan applied for 1-2 hours
Activated with blue light for 9-15 minutes
Avoid all sun exposure for 48 hours after treatment
Skin is red with some swelling and peeling for 3-7 days
3-4 treatments recommended at 1-4 week intervals
