Acne Treatment

Introduction

Acne, a common a very cause of facial scars, commences during puberty and can continue to be a formidable challenge through life..

The severity of acne can range from mild (small eruptions) to severe (cysts and nodules).

What causes Acne?

Small sebaceous glands lie under our skin and secrete oil (sebum) that moisturizes our skin. During puberty, however, triggered by hormonal changes some types of skin with overactive sebaceous glands secrete excess sebum that can get clogged. These clogged glands act as reservoirs for bacterial overgrowth – leading to inflammation and infection.

In addition, stress, poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles can add to hormonal stress and enhance acne formation.

What are the treatment options for Acne?

Even though various over-the-counter medications are available for the treatment of acne, the recommended treatment relies on skin-type.

At Dr. Tvacha, we perfect the medical art of treating acne by skin-typing and customizing treatment for each individual.

Treatment for acne varies from local and oral anti-acne medications, combined with highly advanced combinational uses of LASERs (US-FDA approved), radiofrequency and dermal peels – focusing on eradicating acne, thus leaving behind scar-free skin that you can be proud of.

How does it work?

Advance peels like salicylic peel, lactic peel or glycolic acid help drying-up of sebaceous glands and exfoliation of dead skin, thus preventing the glands from getting clogged. LASERs and radiofrequency modalities deliver energy to the dermis layer, destroying bacteria, tightening loose tissue and trigger collagen-remodeling. Thus results in a clear and healthy skin.

How much time and duration is required for the treatment?

  1. Time required for each session: Dermal peels -- approximately 15 minutes for the entire procedure. Depending on the type of skin, LASERs may require 20-30 minutes for treatment..
  2. Total duration of treatment: Combination of 4 LASERs and 4 Peels are required for best results, which can be a 3-month course. Maintenance sessions may be required, which can be done once in 3 months.
  3. Time interval between sessions: The gap between two sessions of peel and LASER can be 10-15 days, depending on the severity of the skin challenge and the skin type.
