Acne Treatment

Acne is a common condition affecting both youths and adults characterized by overactive sebaceous glands producing too much oil leading to clogged pores and allows the overgrowth of bacteria (propionibacterium acnes) .  This causes an inflammatory response which leads to blemishes and scarring if not treated properly.

 

For best results, The Bare Solutions team will treat your ACNE using several different modalities.  It will be essential to be in our skin care program ensuring you are using medical grade products to help treat this problem with daily cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and treating the ACNE.  This may include an ACNE skin care treatment regimen using ZO Skin Health products, various chemical peels, blue-light therapy, microneedling and traditional medicinal treatments.

 

Until recently, patients could only be treated by various topical or oral medications.  Now, the LightPod NEO laser can result in substantial improvement for the treatment of acne and acne scars. The laser’s energy effectively destroys the p. acne bacteria, while restoring collagen to damaged skin.  The result is a significant clearance of active acne and visible acne scars.  The Aerolase NEO Clear protocols will be used to enhance the treatment of your ACNE in addition to all the other treatment options already mentioned.

 

Your Bare Solutions team will develop a plan with you and tailored for you to try to obtain optimal control of your ACNE.

Acne Treatment Description of Procedure:  Acne treatment procedures aim to reduce or eliminate acne breakouts and improve the appearance of the skin. The specific procedure may vary depending on the severity and type of acne, but commonly used treatments include topical medications, oral medications, chemical peels, laser therapy, and extraction of acne lesions.

Indications: Acne treatment is indicated for individuals who experience persistent or severe acne breakouts, including whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. It is also recommended for those with acne scars or pigmentation issues caused by acne.

Contraindications: Contraindications for acne treatment can vary depending on the specific procedure. However, some general contraindications include pregnancy or breastfeeding, certain medical conditions (e.g., lupus), use of certain medications (e.g., isotretinoin), or active skin infections.

Side Effects: Possible side effects of acne treatment procedures can include skin dryness, redness, peeling, itching, temporary hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and in rare cases, scarring or infection.

What to Expect During Treatment: The treatment process will depend on the type of procedure being performed. It may involve the application of topical or oral medications, the use of specialized tools for acne extraction, or the utilization of devices such as lasers or light therapy. 

Pain Control during Procedure: The level of pain or discomfort during acne treatment procedures can vary. Some treatments may cause mild discomfort or a stinging sensation, while others may require the use of local anesthesia or numbing creams to minimize any pain. Your healthcare provider will take steps to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Duration of Procedure: The duration of an acne treatment procedure can vary significantly depending on the specific treatment and the individual's needs. Some treatments may take just a few minutes, while others could last up to an hour or more. 

Recovery Time: Recovery time after an acne treatment procedure will also depend on the type of procedure performed. Some treatments may not require any downtime, while others may involve a few days of redness, peeling, or temporary skin discoloration. Your healthcare provider will provide post-treatment care instructions to help you manage and speed up the recovery process.

Typical Number of Sessions Required: The number of sessions needed for acne treatment can vary depending on the severity of the acne and the chosen treatment modality. Mild cases may require a few sessions, while more severe or persistent acne may necessitate multiple treatments over several weeks or months. Your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate number of sessions based on your individual needs.

Expected Treatment Results: Acne treatment results can vary depending on the specific procedure, the individual's skin type, and the severity of the acne. However, most treatments aim to reduce acne breakouts, minimize inflammation, improve the appearance of the skin, and potentially diminish acne scars or pigmentation issues. It's important to have realistic expectations and discuss your treatment goals with your healthcare provider.

Post-Treatment Instructions: After an acne treatment procedure, your healthcare provider will provide specific post-treatment instructions tailored to the procedure performed. This may include recommendations for skincare products, sun protection, avoiding certain activities or products, and any necessary follow-up appointments. It's crucial to follow these instructions to ensure optimal results and minimize potential complications.

Typical Cost: The cost of acne treatment can vary widely depending on the type of procedure, the location, and other factors. The cost may include the consultation fee, the price of medications or skincare products, and the fees for the treatment sessions.
