Finding an effective treatment for acne and acne scarring can be a challenge. Many OTC creams promise to deliver effective results, but few live up to the hype. Accutane™/isotretinoin has severe potential side effects. Fortunately, alternatives are available for active acne with the all-new AviClear™ system and Laser Genesis™. Acne scarring can be treated with RF microneedling and fractional laser. If you’re eager to get the clear skin you deserve, contact our Newport Beach office today.
How Do Acne and Acne Scarring Occur?
Bacteria buildup is the primary cause of acne. Genetics and environmental factors can also contribute to this problem, often leading to breakouts and flare-ups. After a breakout, acne scars form when our bodies rapidly release collagen to counteract the damage. As a result of this rapid release, our skin becomes thicker and less flexible, giving it that characteristic bumpy texture.
What Are the Signs?
Of all the areas, having acne on your face and forehead can be the most noticeable. Typical signs include the appearance of:
- Uneven skin texture
- Tender lumps
These concerns can cause pain and irritation. If you’re struggling with active acne or scarring, we can provide you with several solutions to help you look and feel great again.
