Blemish-Free Skin Is Now Possible
Step 1: Cleanse and ExfoliateDuring this phase your skin is cleaned and exfoliated with the use of microdermabrasion, chemical peels and physician grade topical skin agents.
Topical means locally applied. Creams, gels and ointments are all topical products.
The goal of this step is to clear the clogged, congested pores.
The most effective topical skin products for acne are retinoid chemicals. Commonly used retinoids include prescription products like Retin A or tretinoin, Differin or adapalene, and Tazorac.
If you have sensitive skin and do not tolerate Differin or tretinoin daily we often will decrease treatments to 3 days a week or lower the concentration of the chemical in the prescription.
Salicylic acid may also help unclog pores.
An approach customized to each patient is required. For example, a patient with pink or reddish active pimples microdermabrasion would not be appropriate until the inflammation is calmed down.
Insurance will generally cover acne medical visits and acne prescription medications. However, they almost never pay for light therapies, laser therapy, over the counter acne products, scar reduction therapy and so forth.
