Acne Treatment Breakthroughs
Restoring and optimizing skin health is a passion of ours at evolv Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics. We believe in and have experienced the power of improving skin health and appearance to significantly benefit the quality of life for patients. That is why science-based and personalized medical skin care is a fundamental component of all of our aesthetic programs.
New science and research in skin physiology have created exciting opportunities and hope for the care of acne-prone patients. Acne is a complex and multi-factorial disease that requires thorough evaluation by a professional and, consequently, may require comprehensive treatment.
Light Therapy – Light emitting diodes (LED) have been FDA approved for directly reducing acne-causing bacteria in the skin as well as reducing the disturbing redness and inflammation associated with acne pimples and infections. LED light treatment for acne is extremely effective, painless and without any significant side effects.
Medical Skin Care – ZO Skin Health leads the industry in innovative, evidence-based skin care. Their unique product formulations for acne prevention and reduction work through the fundamentals of skin cleansing, reducing oil production and inflammation, and actually result in healthier skin. Proper skin peels are also an essential benefit for acne prone skin and are incorporated in treatment protocols.
Nutrition/Supplements – Acne is an inflammatory disease, as are the majority of skin and health problems. Focusing on an anti-inflammatory diet is fundamental to skin health. In addition, novel skin health supplements have been developed, combining specific vitamins with plant-based phytonutrients (Skin Accumax), that can significantly reduce acne outbreaks and supplement the diet.
Acne Scar Treatment – Although the majority of acne scars are permanent, they can be significantly improved by new technology utilizing laser energy, collagen induction therapy with micropen procedures like the Eclipse, non-surgical radiofrequency such as Infini, injectables, fat grafting and other exciting, research-based services.
