Acne

People with excessively oily skin have to deal with acne in general. Having worked with acne clients for many years, we see a lot of clients with dry skin coping with acne. While most of the skincare treatments are geared to treat acne for oily skin, at Laser Genesis, we understand the dilemma and have developed protocols to treat dry skin acne as well.

The most common form of acne, also known as Acne Vulgaris, is blackheads and whiteheads. Our skin regenerates every three weeks, meaning the dead skin cells get replaced by new skin cells. These dead skin cells combine with the body oil and dust to clog the hair follicle to form a bump known as comedones that maybe a black or a white head. Blackheads are open comedones where the hair follicle is exposed, and the whiteheads are closed comedones where the hair follicle is not detected. Enzyme and Acne facials work exceptionally well to treat this kind of mild acne.

Microdermabrasion is a beneficial and gentle treatment for the treatment of white and blackheads.

When the comedones become inflamed, forming a red or pink bump on the skin, it is called a Papule. It is essential to keep the skin clean and exfoliated to minimize the inflammation. Using skin appropriate hydrating cream is vital too. Superficial to mild chemical peels are an excellent choice of treatment for such acne.

When the comedones are inflamed with white pus and a red ring around it is called a Pustule. If this kind of acne is not treated effectively, it may leave scars. These acne scars can be seen as indentation or change in pigmentation. BLU U light treatment and medium depth chemical peels work well for pustular acne.

When an inflamed comedo is large and hard under the skin, it is called a Nodule. These are generally painful and take a few weeks to heal. Dermatologists generally prescribe antibiotics to treat this kind of acne. At Laser Genesis Skin Clinic, we have advances PDT Levulan treatment to address this kind of acne successfully.

When a nodule is filled with pus and takes the form similar to a boil, it is called a Cyst. These cysts are very painful and take a long time to heal. These cause the breakdown of collagen to leave an indented scar.</p

There are some simple first steps that can help with minimizing the acne:

  • Change the towel and pillow cover every day.
  • Keep the hair away from the affected area.
  • Clean your cell phone with anti-bacterial cleaner regularly
  • Don’t touch the affected area.
  • Drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins
  • Salicylic acid in the skin products help to dissolve the dirt build up that cause’s acne
  • Never, never, never try to pop a pimple, it just makes it worse, and we all know it.

I have been seeing Anu for my skin care for a little over a year now. Along, with being high knowledgeable, Anu spends a great deal of personal time and investment with her clients to ensure their skin care goals are met. One of her most amazing qualities is that she only recommends what she feels you need. Anu is extremely honest with the outcomes of all procedures and what expectations one should have for their unique skin type. I trust her a great deal and have always had a wonderful experience with her.
