What Is Acne?
If you have acne or acne scars, you are not alone!
Acne affects as many as 50 million Americans and it can occur not only as a teenager but also in our adult lives. Strictly speaking, acne occurs when pores become clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria that normally live on our skin. When the pores become plugged, bacteria can cause inflammation and infection. As pores burst, the infected material can lead to scarring. Most scarring is superficial, leaving brown and red marks, but some scars can be deep, leaving pitted scars that some refer to as icepick acne scars. If the body produces excess collagen during the healing, the scars can be thick (hypertrophic) and lead to cystic acne.
Our acne treatments in Northern California can help.
What to Expect During an Acne or Acne Scar Consultation
During your skin consultation at one of our several offices in Northern California, we will examine your skin before recommending any treatments.
From a detailed skin questionnaire to VISIA® skin analysis, together we can find a solution to your acne concerns. Most of the time, solutions involve a combination of medical-grade skincare products as well as chemical peels or lasers. In order to have the best results from a peel or a laser, you should not have active acne at the time of treatment.
How We Help
At our Allegro MedSpa offices, we will walk you through your recommended acne scar regimen to ensure the best results. Because acne is a condition that develops over months or years, it may not be possible to completely eliminate acne scarring. It usually takes a series of treatments to remove the damaged tissue. You must be patient and also maintain a skincare regimen to maximize your results and see new, healthy, and smooth tissue.
