Q & A
What is Acne?
Acne is the most frequently occurring skin issue in the United States today. It can happen at any age, and it can take several forms, including:
- Painful red bumps (papules)
- Pus-filled bumps (pustules)
- Cystic acne (large hard bumps)
It's not uncommon to have several kinds of acne at once. No matter what kind of acne you're dealing with, the team at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness is here to help.
What's the cause of Acne?
There are four main causes of acne. They include:
- Overproduction of sebum, the oil made by your sebaceous glands
- Hair follicles that are clogged with sebum and old skin cells
- Overproduction of androgen hormones
Some patients have more than one of these issues, which can lead to severe chronic acne. Fortunately, there are now highly advanced treatments that can destroy acne regardless of the cause.
What's the treatment for Acne?
There are several powerful treatments available for acne, but one of the most successful is the Aerolase® LightPod Neo laser. This laser has 650 Microsecond Technology™ that offers not only great results but also long-term ones. The laser can:
- Reduce oil production
- Suppress inflammation
- Kill acne-causing bacteria
The LightPod Neo laser is gentle and is appropriate for any age or skin type. This treatment's even helpful for patients who haven't responded to other acne treatments.
In addition to laser treatment, the office also offers facials and chemical peels that target your acne, cleanse your skin, and help you de-stress. Your doctor at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness designs an acne treatment plan that's effective for you and your specific needs.
How do I control Acne breakouts?
In addition to your treatment, there are a few things that you can do to improve your skin and control your breakouts at home, like:
- Avoid picking, scratching, or popping pimples
- Wash your face at least once a day
- Use quality acne products like those in the Image® Clear Cell line
Your Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness provider may also recommend some lifestyle changes like eating a healthy diet to reduce your acne breakouts.
