For patients under 30, three factors generally contribute to chronic acne: excess oil production, bacterial overgrowth and pore obstruction. Untreated acne can leave permanent scars or discoloration on the face and body.
Topical therapy is the first line of defense against acne for most patients, and often works to control symptoms without further treatment.
Oral therapy may be necessary if topical therapy alone is fails to adequately control your acne.
HyrdaFacials are effective, gentle acne treatments that cleanse and extract debris and oil from the pores while infusing the skin with salicylic acid, which can help control breakouts.
Laser therapy often results in drastic clearing of acne for many patients. The Center for Aesthetics uses both Cutera Lasergenesis as well as Aerolase treatments to treat and control acne.
