Acne Treatment

What is acne management?

Acne management includes treatments and services you can get to reduce acne on your skin. Acne is a highly common inflammatory skin condition that most people experience at some point in their lives, often during puberty when hormones are fluctuating. 

The sebaceous glands in your skin produce oils that keep it hydrated, but they can become clogged with dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells. This causes pimples and other acne lesions to form on your skin’s surface. Bacteria in acne causes inflammation, so acne is often red or swollen and can be painful. 

At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo helps you explore the causes behind your acne and find a suitable treatment. You may need to try several approaches to find one that works well for you. 

How does acne management work?

Acne management can involve individual treatments, home products, or several approaches at a time. Dr. Lo evaluates your skin when you come into Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness for your consultation and asks questions about your lifestyle, the medications you take, and medical history.

To manage your acne, Dr. Lo might recommend:

IPL

Intense-pulsed light therapy, also called IPL or a photofacial, is a minimally invasive laser treatment that can help reduce or eliminate pigmentation and improve the texture of your skin.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is performed using a small device that showers your skin with tiny crystals while also removing what is sloughed away. The treatment exfoliates the top layer of skin, helping with skin turnover and complexion.

Viora Pristine®

Pristine is a comprehensive laser solution that treats acne as well as other skin conditions like scar tissue, stretch marks, and signs of sun exposure.

Viora DermaFuse®

Viora DermaFuse is a procedure performed in the office that creates micro-injuries on the skin for effective serum infusion. Dr. Lo uses the Smooth™ corrective serum, which can treat active acne.

Viora VFR

Viora VFR is a radiofrequency treatment that can treat acne scars, which affect the skin’s texture due to damage from acne breakouts.

IV hydration

IV hydration, specifically the Inner Beauty formula, can improve your skin health by fighting acne and minimizing wrinkles. 

Professional skin care products

Dr. Lo recommends products from clinical skin care lines like SkinBetter® and Image® skin care that suit your skin type and can help reset your skin. 

What are the results of acne management?

Acne management results vary based on your treatment plan. However, by working with aesthetic expert Dr. Lo, you can find a method that clears your skin effectively. You can get the best possible results from your acne management plan by following the instructions closely, attending your appointments for in-office procedures, and caring for your skin at home. 

If you find that specific actions, foods, or stress triggers your acne, you can work to eliminate those factors to the best of your ability to keep your acne from coming back.
