Are you struggling with the frustration of acne breakouts? If the answer is yes, then you are not alone! Very few people are lucky enough to avoid pimples, even as adults. Studies have shown that up to 85% of all women and 15% of all men may experience mild to moderate breakouts well into their 40s.
For most, addressing excess oil in the skin is a good place to start. While better hygiene is often touted as a solution for acne breakouts, skin that is cleansed incorrectly, too often, with harmful products or with harsh exfoliators can actually make the skin worse. Washing in this manner can trigger even more sebum production, exacerbating your breakouts. While the treatment of acne is not a primary focus in our practice, here is what you can expect when you visit the Centre for Pure Skin:
During your initial appointment, our aesthetic experts will evaluate the severity of your acne, review your medical history and carefully consider your skin type to create a treatment plan that best fits your needs—even if it means that plan is to refer you to a Dermatologist. While we offer several effective procedures and products that are intended to improve breakouts, patients experiencing severe acne symptoms may benefit from solutions that are only offered by dermatology practices.
At the Centre for Pure Skin, any home care regimen that we recommend is likely to include topical retinoids and/or other physician-dispensed products that have been medically formulated to treat acne breakouts. As a part of a plastic surgery practice, you can be assured that our products are sourced directly from trusted pharmaceutical skincare partners such as SkinBetter® Science, Alastin® Skincare, SkinCeuticals® and more.
If we determine that Pure Skin is the place for you, our experts will work to customize a plan for your acne breakouts that best fits your unique skin type, lifestyle and budget. Common procedure recommendations may include manual extractions by our licensed Estheticians, chemical peels from well-founded sources such as PCA® Skin, HydraFacial® and SkinMedica®, or laser skin resurfacing with proven modalities such as Fractora® by InMode Aesthetics.
