Non-invasive and drug-free options for clear skin.
As a centre for dermatology, one of the biggest skin concerns we help Fresno and Central Valley patients with is acne. Many of our patients are looking for drug-free acne treatments that help with the appearance of breakouts and acne scarring. In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States.
Acne is extremely common and it is also one of the most challenging conditions to correct. When left untreated, it can leave both physical and emotional scars. However, a knowledgable dermatologist recommending the right acne treatments can help. Breakouts can be managed with a combination of professional at-home skincare, in-office non-invasive treatments, and medication. Some of the drug-free acne treatments that we offer at the clinic include:
Professional exfoliation treatments using hydroxy acids can be used to reduce the build-up of dead skin cells. Dead skin cells become stuck in the pores along with sebum (the skin’s natural moisture). These impacted pores are at the root of the blackheads, whiteheads and blemishes associated with acne. With medical-grade skin resurfacing, many of these acne lesions are prevented, while the healing process of existing breakouts is accelerated. A series of treatments is helpful to see long term improvements to the skin and to effectively manage acne.
HydraFacial MD® microdermabrasion
This specialized microdermabrasion treatment can be tailored with acne-clearing serums that are infused into the skin, while dead, pore-clogging skin cells are suctioned away. The skin texture is noticeably smoothed, the pores are refined and the occurrence of blemishes is reduced with regular HydraFacial treatments. A series of 6 sessions spaced two weeks apart can greatly improve the health and appearance of the skin in a matter of weeks.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing
To address textural scarring and discoloration resulting from acne blemishes, our clinic provides fractional laser resurfacing. This advanced laser technology is able to leave the epidermis intact while treating the depths of the skin, remodeling collagen fibers and activating the synthesis of new collagen to fill in pitted scars. Pigmented cells are also targeted and eliminated by the laser beams, resulting in a more even skin tone.
