Where Does Acne Come From?
Acne develops when pores and/or hair follicles and pores get clogged by oil, debris, and dead skin cells, and it’s characterized by pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and even cysts. Acne is most prevalent in those whose parents experienced acne, those who take certain medications and use certain cosmetic products, and those who produce an excess amount of sebum.
How Does Dr. Grossman Treat Acne and Scarring?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can help quite a bit with acne and scarring. Over the course of multiple treatments, IPL can greatly reduce redness from acne, red and brown acne scars, and can help acne breakouts when combined with Levulan®.
Dr. Grossman can prescribe medical-grade products to help control breakouts. She also has her very own line of skincare that can help to prevent it in the first place and keep your skin glowing and clear. During your consultation, she will evaluate your skin to determine the correct treatment plan for your specific case.
Certain dermal fillers can help fill the skin under and around acne scarring, which helps lessen the visibility of the scars. Dr. Grossman will inject the filler just underneath the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of scars. The effectiveness of this treatment will depend on the severity of the scarring.
