Acne is a common skin condition that teenagers and adults alike can develop. Acne can be painful and cause emotional distress, and can be difficult to treat successfully without medical grade treatments. RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center offers acne treatments to residents of McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, Brownsville, and all of South Texas.
How Is Acne Treated?
Acne can develop for a vast number of reasons, making it difficult to successfully diagnose the reason for flare ups. Each patient’s skin is different, making it all the more difficult to develop a single method of acne treatment that will work for everyone. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we offer a number of acne treatments to help patients successfully manage their acne no matter the severity or skin type. The first part of acne treatment is scheduling a consultation so that a patient’s skin can be examined and accurately prescribed a treatment.
IPL Photofacial For Acne
The IPL photofacial treatment is a non-abrasive method of skin rejuvenation that uses the remarkable technology of intense pulsed light (IPL). Although it can be used to achieve many age-defying effects, it is also an effective acne treatment. It is a popular choice for acne treatment because it treats acne as well as the discoloration that often develops in combination with acne symptoms. This treatment uses a specially designed handpiece to deliver controlled light energy to the skin. A single treatment session lasts approximately 20 minutes and is considered to be quite comfortable by most patients, requiring no anesthetics whatsoever. This method delivers the best results when received in a series of four to six treatments.
Actinage™ Skin Clarifying Peel System For Acne
The Actinage™ Skin Clarifying Peel System is a superficial yet powerful chemical peel designed to target patients of all skin types and with acne problems. It combines the powerful effects of salicylic, mandelic, and azelaic acids in combination with retinol for the treatment of oily and blemish-prone skin. This highly effective peel has a reduced risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which allows all skin types to be treated and can be performed in a series of four to six treatments every month for enhanced clarifying effects. This peel has anti-aging benefits as well, treating the source of acne while further improving the health of the skin. This pain-free and comprehensive treatment also includes a complete home care system of products that amplify and extend the chemical peel’s benefits.
When Will I See Results From Acne Treatment?
Acne severity and resiliency varies significantly from patient to patient, making it difficult to determine when results can be expected from treatment. We have noticed that patients achieve a substantial reduction in the appearance of their acne after about four sessions of either of the treatments above. It is always possible to perform additional treatments if necessary. If you do not receive satisfactory results from treatment, we are happy to help you find an alternative solution that will be more effective.
How Much Do Acne Treatments Cost?
To determine the cost of your acne treatment, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs.
