Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation that can treat acne by removing the top layer of skin. This can unclog pores and remove dead skin cells contributing to acne. Chemical peels essentially remove the dead and damaged skin tissues and debris from the uppermost layers of the skin to reveal smoother, softer, healthier skin underneath. They can also reduce the amount of bacteria, thus minimizing the risk of acne-related inflammation.
Medical-grade skincare is a great option for people who have tried over-the-counter treatments with no success. The medical-grade skincare plan usually includes three steps. The first step is to cleanse the skin with anti-inflammatory ingredients, following which a topical medication is used to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. Finally, a moisturizer with SPF can be used to hydrate the skin and protect it from the sun.
Treatments for Acne
Acne is a common skin condition that can cause pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Acne occurs when the pores of the skin become blocked with oil, dead skin cells, or bacteria. When the pores are blocked, the skin cannot breathe, leading to the growth of acne-causing bacteria, known as p.acnes, and the formation of pimples.
Patients suffering from acne often try many over-the-counter acne medications and skincare products as acne treatment in Katy. But these medications are not always effective, and can sometimes cause side effects worse than the acne itself. That’s because acne breakouts can happen for numerous reasons, so your acne treatment must be personalized.
Dr. Anyaoku performs a thorough evaluation to examine your skin type and conditions. She evaluates your medical history, discusses your symptoms, identifies the root cause of acne, and curates treatment plans that clear your pores, kill the harmful bacteria, and regulate excess sebum production, helping you achieve clear acne-free skin.
Microneedling with SkinPen is a process whereby very fine needles are used to create tiny punctures in the skin. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look smooth, firm, taut, and voluminous. As your body produces new skin cells and collagen fibers, your acne scars gradually fill out and heal. The results of microneedling appear gradually over several weeks and months.
