Men’s Acne Therapy

Acne Is a Wide-Spread Skin Condition for Men
It is estimated that 40 million to 50 million Americans are affected by some form of acne. Nearly everyone has acne at some point in their life. While most people associate this disease with their teenage years, it is also very common among adult men.

There Is No Single Best Treatment for Acne
Each man’s acne responds differently to various treatment alternatives. Acne treatments work to reduce oil production, speed up skin cell turnover, reduce scarring, fight bacterial infection, and reduce skin inflammation. The dermatologist must develop an individualized regimen for each patient that best controls the outbreaks or best repairs the affects.

We Offer the Best and Widest Range of Advanced Acne Treatments for Men

– Topical Treatments or Medications by Prescription
If over-the-counter treatments cannot control the acne, the doctor might recommend a stronger prescription lotion or medication.

– Salicylic Acid Peels
Salicylic acid peels are slightly stronger and go somewhat deeper into the skin. These mild to moderate chemical peels are sometimes referred to as “lunch time” peels because they literally take just minutes to perform and generally the patient may return to their activities without any disruption. This peel is beneficial for the improvement of skin tones and texture. There is also little to no recovery time needed for this treatment. After this peels, the skin may also appear slightly pink and feel a little tighter. Mild peeling may be noticed in a few days following the peel. This is a good peel for men with oily or acne-prone skin.

– Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion may be used to minimize small scars, minor skin surface irregularities, surgical scars, and acne scars. Dermabrasion involves removing the top layers of skin with an electrical machine that “abrades” the skin. As the skin heals from the procedure, the surface appears smoother and fresher.

– Laser Genesis Treatment
The Laser Genesis is a laser treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. It can improve the skin’s complexion after only a few treatments. Laser Genesis treatment utilizes advanced science to promote smooth, evenly tones skin. The Laser Genesis system penetrates deep into the dermal tissue where collagen is to stimulate an increase in new collagen formation. Laser Genesis treatment helps to reduce the appearance of scars, and most patients return to work or social engagements immediately after their Laser Genesis treatment.

– Blue Light Therapy (Phototherapy)
Phototherapy using a blue light source has been shown to decrease the number of acne-causing bacteria with minimal side effects, such as dry skin. Blue light therapy does not use ultraviolet (UV) light, so it does not damage the skin as earlier types of light therapy did. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, blue-light therapy is the best-known light therapy for acne treatment.

– Photodynamic Therapy with Levulan
This Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) regimen combines the Blue Light Therapy with a topical drug called “Levulan,” which is a photosensitizing agent applied during treatment. This combination gives skin a one-two punch that kills bacteria, shrinks oil glands, and can offer permanent acne relief for more severe cystic acne. Treatments may be spread over 2 – 4 months.
