Acne is an extremely complex skin condition. Since acne breakouts can be traced back to numerous possible factors, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to acne treatment. Each individual’s acne treatment plan must be personalized according to their unique condition and goals. If you are suffering from acne in Clearwater, contact our medical providers. They will perform a thorough facial skin analysis to curate a personalized, long-term treatment plan to reduce acne breakouts and heal the acne scars, making your skin look smooth and even textured.
Your personalized acne treatment at Skinology
What are my acne treatment options?
Acne breakouts can happen for various reasons, such as genetics, hormonal changes, excess oil production, clogged pores, or eating food that promotes inflammation in the gut. When the pores of your skin are enlarged or clogged with debris, dead skin cells, and oil residue, the acne-producing bacteria (p.acnes) trigger inflammation, leading to acne breakouts. We start by exploring which food choices may be contributing to your acne. Our treatments work to unclog the pores, exfoliate the dead skin cells, and kill the p.acnes bacteria, reducing acne breakouts.
Chemical peels are unique skincare formulations that exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin’s surface. The medical provider applies a unique chemical formulation to slough away the dead skin cells and debris, unclog the pores of the skin, and kill the harmful p.acnes bacteria responsible for your acne breakouts, reducing the risk of acne breakouts.
Another treatment available to you for your acne in Clearwater is the HydraFacial. HydraFacial is a unique skin rejuvenation technique that involves three essential steps — exfoliation, extraction, and infusion. The medical provider exfoliates the uppermost layers of the skin, suctions away the debris and oil residue from the pores of the skin, and infuses a unique concoction of skincare products to reduce the likelihood of acne breakouts.
Daily at-home maintenance is an essential component of acne treatment. Our medical providers offer a collection of medical-grade skincare products that keep your skin hydrated and moisturized without clogging up the pores. The skincare products help you rebuild your skin and maintain acne-free skin for extended periods.
What are my acne scar treatment options?
When you’re young, acne scars fade away over several weeks or months because your body produces a high volume of collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your facial skin look smooth and even textured. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce new collagen fibers is compromised, leading to long-lasting acne scars that don’t go away. For your acne in Clearwater, our acne scar treatments focus on stimulating collagen production to fill out the acne scars and make them disappear.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by stimulating collagen production, which eventually leads to smooth, even-textured, and scar-free skin.
RF microneedling is a modified version of a traditional microneedling procedure. We use the Morpheus8 device to make thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface while delivering thermal energy into the deep dermis, stimulating collagen production and skin cell contracture. This procedure catalyzes collagen production to fill out deeper acne scars.
IPL therapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves channeling highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy into the skin. The light energy penetrates the uppermost layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and fill out the acne scars. The results gradually appear over several weeks and months.
