Having acne when you’re thirteen is one thing, but having adult acne can make you feel like you’ll forever be stuck in puberty. And although you may think that popping your pimples and using over-the-counter ointments are going to help your acne get better, if it’s not already long gone by now, it’s time to move on to bigger and better acne treatments. Whether you suffer from hormonal acne or acne that’s caused primarily by bacteria, Dr. Jack Bertolino may have a few treatments to help you. Let’s take a closer look.
Omnilux Blue LED Light
One of the best ways that we have seen acne treatment work is by treating the source. By using Omnilux Blue LED light, we are able to kill acne-causing bacteria on contact. Then, we usually follow up 48 hours later with the Omnilux Red LED light to help manage the inflammation.
Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion
Another option that we use to help get rid of the acne-causing bacteria and inflammation is a combination of chemical peels and microdermabrasion which work to get rid of dead epithelial cell and make sure that the pores stay open and clean.
This at-home acne fighting kit is great at helping you get rid of acne and maintaining your results from the comfort of your own home. Depending on how severe your acne is, it will help Dr. Bertolino determine if Dermworx will be strong enough to fight it.
Platelet-rich plasma isn’t just good at helping treat patients who are suffering from fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, Dr. Bertolino uses it for a variety of things including helping treat acne in the acute phase to get rid of scarring and improve your skin heal up.
This acne treatment process combines acne treatments and technology to help give you superior clinical results without the need for prescription drugs.
With all of these options, you may be wondering how you’ll know what treatment is best for you. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bertolino, he will conduct a brief skin evaluation and help determine what treatment will work best for you.
