It is back-to-school time, and that means putting your best face forward.  But it can also mean embarrassing acne.  So let’s talk about quick fixes and more lasting solutions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Quick Fix 1  

Acne facials  and a process called extractions can be used to get rid of  blackheads and whiteheads.  While this may need to be  repeated, it gives almost instant improvement.  Adding salicylic acid products and RetinA can help maintain.

Quick Fix 2

Light chemical peels can also give rapid improvement.

Quick Fix 3

PDT, or what my patients call the Blue Light Special.  This is a series of in office light treatments to kill the acne- causing bacteria.  It is often combined with oral antibiotics and topical treatments for optimal results.

For more serious acne, longer term antibiotics, topical or oral retinoids, or other treatments may be necessary.  Almost all acne can be successfully treated, but it may require more than one treatment. Rather than just waiting to outgrow it and risk physical or emotional scars, treat it.  NOW.
