Acne affects people of every age and gender, from teenagers to menopausal women and beyond. For this reason, Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics offers a wide range of acne treatments to help break the stubborn cycle of acne and heal it at its source. During your personal consultation with our skin care experts, we’ll tailor your acne treatment to your unique skin concerns and goals.
An acne injection can improve the inflammation and redness of an acne lesion, cyst or blemish. For acne cysts, we gently inject Kenalog-10 (an anti-inflammatory medicine) and lincomycin (an antibiotic) directly into the lesion. It takes about 24 hours to see results, but after your injection is administered, you will start to notice your acne cyst shrink, flatten and fade. It may take more than one treatment, depending on your skin.
BBL stands for broadband light, the most effective type of IPL treatment on the market. During a photofacial, intense light hits your skin, drying up sebum/oil within your skin cells. BBL also helps speed cellular turnover, triggering the growth of collagen and elastin. This combination of benefits makes BBL photofacials an easy and highly effective acne treatment. Because BBL photofacials don’t break the skin, there is little to no downtime following your treatment. You can expect to see results immediately or within the days following treatment, depending on your skin’s unique response.
HydraFacial’s patented three-step process, which exfoliates dead, dull skin cells, extracts debris and replenishes the skin with active ingredients, is a wonderful solution for problem skin. We recommend incorporating routine HydraFacials into your skin care regimen so you can enjoy the highest level of complexion clearing benefits. HydraFacial helps provide immediate improvements to congested skin, clearing away black heads, white heads and other congestion, but it also works long-term to help skin stay balanced, reduce excess oil and impart a radiant glow. Included in the Deluxe HydraFacial treatment is a Blue LED Light which will help get rid of acne bacteria and improve the appearance of oily and congested skin.
As you probably already know, chemical peels use a fruit enzyme or chemical solution to exfoliate the outermost layers of skin cells, revealing smoother texture and more evenly toned skin. This exfoliation is precisely why chemical peels are effective acne treatments. Exfoliating your skin helps speed your cellular turnover, preventing the buildup of oil and other debris that clog your pores. We recommend starting with a series of three chemical peels to achieve your desired goal, with periodic maintenance chemical peels to maintain your benefits for the long term.
Our medical facials are packed with medical-grade serums and treatments that help to improve the look and feel of your skin. We will tailor your medical facial to your unique complexion concerns, which means your treatment may include a combination of products and treatments to address several concerns at once. To break the stubborn acne cycle and dry up blemishes, our medical facial uses salicylic acid, glycolic acid and other proven acne-fighting ingredients. We may also apply steam and perform extractions on any whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. After your medical facial, your skin will feel intensely refreshed and clean.
During your personal consultation, we can help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments will help you meet your needs. We often combine treatments to achieve a synergistic boost of results. For example, your acne regimen could pair BBL photofacial with HydraFacial Deluxe, to help you enjoy clear, radiant skin that lasts!
