Unfortunately, acne treatments don’t work equally for everyone. If over-the-counter creams and cleansers do not work, or if you are experiencing side effects, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD can provide treatment for acne in New Rochelle, New York. Keep in mind that acne cannot be cured, only controlled. You will begin to see improvements after four to eight weeks. Acne often appears worse before it gets better.
Microdermabrasion has been performed for many years to treat skin disorders, including acne. Tiny sodium bicarbonate crystals are used to exfoliate the skin and remove the outer, uneven layer. This treatment improves blood flow, thus speeding healing. Microdermabrasion also unclogs pores and removes dirt and oils.
Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD understands that each person’s skin has unique needs and is thus proud to provide customized plans for acne treatment. Our cosmetic surgeon can utilize salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, retinol, and tretinoin according to your individual needs.
Chemical peels can control some types of acne and improve the appearance of your skin. Our cosmetic surgeon will apply a chemical solution to your skin. The solution will unclog pores and remove dead skin cells, whiteheads, and blackheads. The process may need to be repeated for ideal results.
