Personalized Acne Treatment

Acne treatment requires personalized care because breakouts can occur for multiple reasons. The most common causes of acne breakouts are due to overproduction of sebum, clogged pores, uninhibited bacterial growth on the skin, and excessive male hormone. How the skin reacts to acne treatment can widely vary across populations, so a careful consultation with a certified dermatologist is recommended.

Some topical acne treatments include the use of benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide works by targeting acne-causing bacteria. On the other hand, benzoyl peroxide does not affect the rate of sebum production or skin turnover, so the use of additional treatment in addition to benzoyl peroxide is recommended. Salicylic acid treats acne by unclogging pores by removing dead skin cells. Salicylic acid does not kill acne-causing bacteria. Glycolic acid on the other hand facilitates skin turnover rate, by aiding gentle exfoliation and bringing new skin cells to the surface.

Although topical acne treatment has been proven effective for preventative measures of mild acne, laser treatments may be a more suitable option for immediate results on stubborn acne and deep acne scar. Some of the laser treatments for acne scars include hydrafacial treatment, treatment with LED light, treatment with high frequency, eMatrix for acne scars, and skin whitening laser for acne scars.

Hydrafacial for Acne Treatment

Hydrafacial acne treatment works by providing a holistic approach to treating and preventing acne. Skin cleansing, exfoliation, and brightening treatment are included as part of hydrafacial treatment, which helps to remove acne-causing bacteria, unclog pores, and treat hyperpigmentation caused by acne scar.

eMatrix for Acne Treatment

eMatrix acne treatment has been shown to be effective for deep acne scars. This treatment uses radiofrequency to penetrate into the deeper layer of the skin to target stubborn acne scars, in addition to stimulating collagen production. The strength of the radiofrequency can be adjusted depending on the severity of the acne scar.

Laser for Acne Treatment

LightStim is a laser treatment for acne scars that utilizes light-emitting diode (LED) light. Red LED light has been shown to promote collagen production and reduce inflammation whereas blue LED light has consistently demontrated to reduce sebum production, which reduces the number of bacteria on the skin. The wavelength of the red LED light works by strengthening mitochondria which provides energy to the skin cells, which promotes a higher turnover rate of hyperpigmentation. On the other hand, the wavelength of the blue LED light reduces the size of the oil gland.

High-Frequency Facial for Acne Treatment

High-Frequency Facial is another laser treatment for acne scars that promotes better blood circulating and lymphatic drainage which flushes out toxins from skin cells. This treatment works by delivering high-frequency thermal current on the surface of the skin. This reduces acne- causing bacteria, facilitates blood circulation, which helps deliver oxygen and additional

nutrients to skin cells, and promotes lymphatic drainage, flushing out toxins and byproducts from skin cells for faster healing.

Alex TriVantage Laser for Acne Treatment

Alex TriVantage laser treatment for acne scars is another option. This treatment not only targets acne scar, but it treats other forms of hyperpigmentations, such as sunspots, freckles, and age spots. Alex TriVantage Laser works by delivering triple wavelength energy, which fragments the pigment molecules into smaller pieces that the body can absorb and flush out.
