What is Acne?
Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands. It is not a punishment for something you did wrong or failed to do. You simply have it through a genetic predisposition. Acne knows no cure, however, there are workable treatments that can keep acne under control and help create normal looking skin.
I’ve been an acne specialist since 2006, my modality is based on Dr .James Fulton, the most renowned acne expert and a co-founder of Retin-A. I took all his classes and use his product line for all my acne clients.
WHY DO WE NEED ACNE TREATMENTS?
Professional acne treatments done by an acne specialist will help you clear your skin more quickly than with just products alone. As your skin specialist, I want to closely monitor your skin making sure that the treatments and products are working for you, and to make changes to your home care as needed. Also, to professionally exfoliate the skin so that home care products can penetrate the pore easily, to extract acne impaction, to kill acne bacteria inside the pore, and to lighten dark spots caused by acne lesions, to hydrate the skin so that your skin is receptive to your home care regimen.
Consultation is a must before proceeding to any treatments to make the most effective treatment plans for the type of skin you have and also for the grade of acne you have. Also to educate you of what the treatments in tail and give you recommendations to get your skin clear. A consultation form and questionnaire is also completed at this time.
