Acne can happen to anyone at any age. It’s embarrassing. It can cause you to lose confidence in your appearance. It can even affect some people so much that they don’t want to interact with others more than they have to. At Avalon Laser, we believe that everyone has beauty and we’re here to help bring out that beauty by offering multiple acne treatments so you can feel good about your appearance again.
If you have acne or have had it in the past you’ve probably done the research about what causes the condition. Generally, acne is caused by hormonal changes in the body, which is why many adolescents experience acne. However, hormonal changes can happen at any age and many adults also experience acne at one point. Clogged pores can also cause acne when bacteria become trapped under the skin’s surface, leading to inflammation and breakouts.
Most people with mild to moderate acne try to treat the condition themselves when flare-ups and breakouts occur by using over-the-counter products. If you’re lucky, these products can temporarily help alleviate symptoms but in many cases, it can exasperate the condition and cause even more breakouts. This is because of the ingredients in many OTC acne products. With harsh chemicals and even alcohol, these products can do more harm than good.
That’s why we recommend seeing a trained medical professional for your acne treatment, even if it’s not severe. You may not think about seeing a cosmetic surgeon for your acne but here at Avalon Laser, Dr. Reza Tirgari has extensive experience helping people of all ages determine the best treatments for their skin.
At Avalon Laser, our mission is to help you elevate your existing beauty. We do this by understanding how the skin and body work so that we can diagnose and treat your concerns in the most beneficial way possible. The first step in treating acne is to understand your skin type. Everyone has a different quality to their skin whether it’s oily, dry, or some variation of both. Once we know your skin type, we can create a treatment plan to best help your condition.
At our office, we offer the following acne treatments:
- Chemical peels: For those with mild to moderate acne, this medical-grade peel is designed to your skin type and penetrates deep into the skin to remove bacteria and dirt and the underlying conditions that are causing your acne.
- Laser therapy: This new and effective treatment can help with mild to moderate acne by reducing the amount of oil your skin produces and targeting the causes of inflammation without damaging the skin’s surface.
- Levulan-IPL Photodynamic therapy: This treatment is for advanced and severe cases of acne. This therapy is used in combination with lifestyle changes as well as anti-acne medication to alleviate your acne and prevent scars from forming.
Dr. Tirgari is a trained cosmetic dermatologist and will determine the best treatment for you during a comprehensive consultation. By understanding your skin, your history of acne treatments, and lifestyle he can help you find the most effective plan to help treat and eliminate your acne.
