Struggling

with Acne?

Acne does not only occur during puberty. Adult Acne, also known as hormonal acne, is also one of the most common issues for adult as well. Pimples are found mainly on the face, but can also occur on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. So how do we treat the different types of acne? 

Understanding Acne & The Types of Treatment You Can Consider

Why Is Early Treatment of Acne Important?

Many parents, teenagers and young adults believe in letting acne run its course and recover on its own. Others treat it with home remedies which may only cause the acne to further worsen. Understanding the causes of acne and which treatments can help your skin is the best way to achieve effective results.

Acne occurs when the openings of hair follicles are clogged and blocked by oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. The clogged pores become infected and inflamed, forming a pimple - a small red bump with pus at its tip. A person may suffer from multiple types of acne at the same time.

Lack of proper treatment can lead to depressed acne scars and pigmented acne marks - also known as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Acne scars can be expensive to treat, and also involve significant downtime. Active acne, and post acne scars can often lead to significant physical and psychological problems as well. Thus, it is important to treat your acne early.

Treatment for Acne

Acne is a complex skin condition with causes that go beyond cosmetic issues. While factors such as hormonal activity, genetic makeup, and stress play a part in the development of acne, the solutions go beyond skin-deep. Moreover, not everyone’s acne condition can be treated the same way. Effectively treating acne calls for identifying the root causes and addressing them. Assessment and diagnosis of the root causes of acne are an integral aspect of acne medical treatment. Thus, a customized multi-modal approach based on medical principles can help deliver effective treatment for acne.

Acne Scars Treatment
Xtensive Microneedling Scar Repair
Formation of atrophic acne scars occurs due to insufficient production of collagen, during the skin-healing process. Most of the acne patients suffer from a variety of scarring that ranges from icepick, and boxcar, to rolling scars. Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling procedure is designed to deliver RF energy (40-60°C) deeper, and more precisely to the target areas - through microneedles. The controlled micro-injuries produced on the skin surface, by the micro-needles, encourage the growth factors such as collagen and fibroblast, during the wound- healing process. The treatment relies on needles to break down the scar tissue, and is effective for treating skin issues like scars, wrinkles, laxity, uneven tone and texture.
