Teens are not the only demographic who suffer from acne. Acne affects people at many ages. Since your face is the first thing that people see, acne can be extremely embarrassing.

If you are a patient in Boca Raton or the surrounding areas of Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale or anywhere throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, you don’t have to hide your face anymore. Dr. Ress at liv Plastic Surgery offers many acne treatment options to help clear your skin, diminish the signs of acne, and help prevent future breakouts.

What are
Acne Treatments?

It is important to understand what acne is before you can consider treatment. Acne or acne breakouts are the result of pores becoming clogged with too much oil. Clogged pores can result in a variety of acne types, such as blackheads, whiteheads, papules or pustules. The pores can become inflamed and fill with puss. Treatment for acne issues depends on how severe and persistent it is. Though some may think that acne occurs due to a lack of hygiene, the truth is that breakouts are more commonly caused by hormones, medications, menstruation, and even stress.

At liv Plastic Surgery, we offer acne treatments not only to treat breakouts, but more importantly to prevent future issues. It is our mission to inspire hope; to raise the level of a person’s beauty inside and out; to make people healthier, self assured and self-fulfilled by providing the best care to every patient.

We offer the following treatments at our medspa:

Chemical Peels:

An acne chemical peel is performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin. There are three types of chemical peel options that can be used depending on the severity of your acne. The glycolic acid peels are the most gentle and treat mild acne. The trichloroacetic peels are a mid-grade peel and work on moderate cases of acne. And lastly, the phenol peels are the most powerful and help to reduce acne in severe cases. The solution in each of these peels will cause the skin to blister and peel over a period of several days. As the treated skin comes off, fresh new skin replaces it. This exfoliation caused by the acne skin peel eliminates or reduces the appearance of acne blemishes and scars. Acne chemical peel treatments not only provide acne relief but can also improve the skin’s pigmentation and make the skin smoother.

Laser Resurfacing:

Laser resurfacing, similar to chemical peels, removes the problematic skin layer and allows new skin to surface. The benefit to laser resurfacing is that this treatment is done with laser precision. The primary effects of laser light in skin resurfacing are photothermal, heating a particular substance in the skin. This precise heat aids in the breakdown of selected tissues in the skin of the affected area. The new skin cells that form during the healing process gives the skin a tighter, younger and clearer looking surface. Laser resurfacing is not only useful in treating acne but also in helping to reduce acne scars, wrinkles, sun spots, blemishes and skin discoloration.

Mini-Laser Peel:

The mini-laser peel is also known as “the weekend peel”. The reason for this nickname is due to the peel’s quick treatment and speedy recovery time. A mini-laser peel works the same as laser resurfacing but only treats the topmost layer of the skin. This peel is perfect if you have a busy lifestyle and are constantly on the go. At liv Plastic Surgery we recommend the mini-laser peel if you want to improve your skin with lasting results, minimal recovery time and little post-treatment care. The healing process for a mini-laser peel is usually only three to four days.
