What Are Acne Treatments?

Acne is a complex skin condition. Many people believe that acne is a sign of skin that has not been properly cleansed, but much more is needed to repair acne-prone skin. Acne is caused by a combination of:

  • Accumulated dead skins
  • Excess oils
  • Clogged pores
  • High levels of bacteria
  • Infection

Dead skin cells combine with excess oils to create a sticky substance that penetrates and clogs the pores. This creates an environment where bacteria thrive and cause inflammation. The inflammation ultimately results in infections.

Effective acne treatments need to account for all contributing factors for blemishes.

What Are the Benefits of Acne Treatments?

Our professional acne treatments help to restore a balance within the skin so that it can naturally overcome the effects of acne. This involves:

  • Exfoliation
  • Deep cleaning pores
  • Reducing bacteria levels
  • Maintaining hydration

Who is a Good Candidate for Acne Treatments?

The best candidates for acne treatments are men and women who have acne scars and/or active acne.

What is the Procedure for Acne Treatments?

Acne scars are permanent reminders of the blemishes that affect your skin. Dr. Rothaus recommends laser scar treatment to help these scars blend with the surrounding skin. This helps the acne scars to be less visible.

If you have active acne, we can help. Rothaus Plastic Surgery offers laser treatments with the Luctronic system, as well as professional skin care products.

What is the Recovery like After Acne Treatments?

Laser treatments for acne scars and active acne do not require any downtime. The skin may feel sensitive for a few days, and you should protect the area with an appropriate, high-quality sunscreen.

Your skin will need time to rebalance. You may develop new blemishes, but over time, the breakouts are less frequent and severe.
