In addition to other means of treating acne, including prescription medications, your Dermatologist may wish to recommend treatments that are a combination of medical and cosmetic approaches. Acne Treatments which are administered by a Licensed Esthetician, provide deep cleansing, exfoliation, and the removal of what we call blackheads and whiteheads. The addition of a Glycolic Peel may be included to accelerate the results of this treatment.
PhotoDynamic Rejuvenation and the Blu-U® Light are new advancements in treatment approaches for moderate acne. The BLU-U light itself is an apparatus which houses a series of special light tubes. During the treatment, the patient sits in front of this delivery system for a short period of time. This technology acts to destroy the bacteria causing the acne condition. After a series of treatments of this type, most patients experience a considerable reduction in their acne symptoms. The number of treatments recommended will vary with each individual. PhotoDynamic Rejuvenation is also a powerful treatment for sun damaged and aging skin. In that case, the primary light source used is AFT Pulsed Light.
Proper daily skin care is critical to effective management of acne. At Rejuvene, we have a variety of preparations that are customized for acne afflicted skin. Active ingredients such as glycolic or salicylic acids and potent antioxidants are important factors that provide proper cleansing, exfoliation, and soothing of irritation and inflammation which often accompanies this condition.
To assist you in maintaining therapeutic results after your initial treatments, we have created both a Teen and Adult Maintenance Special. Please ask our staff at Rejuvené for details.Proper treatment for acne begins with an evaluation from your Dermatologist.
