Dermatologists and physicians are the logical first choice for the acne sufferer. When you have a bump or several it is only natural to want to see your doctor for their advice and diagnosis.
It’s a smart first step to get a diagnosis to be sure that you indeed have acne and not something else as there are many disorders of the skin that look like acne and do need to be treated by a physician. If you are unsure if you have acne or not, start with your physician.
If you have already been to your physician or dermatologist and know that you have acne and haven’t been satisfied with the results from over the counter products or the suggestions from your doctor, then an Acne Specialist should be the next step for you. Most physicians don’t have the time to spend educating their patients on the root cause of their acne and often prescribe oral antibiotics, topical antibiotics, topical retinoids and sometimes benzoyl peroxide for patients.
These products are typically prescribed in strong strengths which result in dry, red, flaky, irritated skin. This typically leads to the patient abandoning their routine of care due to the side effects. Additionally, it’s often challenging to communicate with your physician as they have a busy patient schedule and your skin question may not seem urgent.
What an Acne Specialist can do for you….
At Saving Face SkinSpa and Acne Clinic we will analyze your skin type and your acne type as well as test your skin for sensitivities. We will take the time to teach you the root cause of your acne, Retention Hyperkeratosis, and exactly what that means for you. We will go over your lifestyle, diet, medications and comedogenic ingredients in makeup and skincare products that can exacerbate acne.
We will take the time to investigate your situation, looking at it from all angles, to determine the culprits that are contributing to your acne. We will develop a plan of action specifically for you and your situation, one that works with your lifestyle. This is why an Acne Specialist can be so successful. We teach you the pieces of knowledge you are missing to take charge of caring for your acne.
The rest of the program includes use of specific home care products designed for your skin and acne type, all without the redness, irritation, or dryness of other common products. Treatment also includes office sessions to speed the healing of your acne lesions. These sessions can include deep pore cleansing, extractions, chemical peels, enzyme exfoliations, light therapy and hydrating healing masks.
If you are tired of dealing with your acne, or fed up with trying things that just don’t work, then come see me. Lets get to the root of the problem instead of just putting a band-aid on it, and get you clear once and for all.
