Acne can be a stubborn problem that many people of all ages deal with. It’s not just something that affects teenagers; older people often get acne as well, which in turn can lead to scarring that lasts well after the acne itself is gone. Fortunately, there are ways to deal with acne and acne scarring. Expert dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac at MI Skin Dermatology Center in DC offers the latest, most effective acne treatments available to clear up your skin.
Laser treatments are some of the best options for dealing with acne and acne scarring. There are a wide variety of lasers of different strengths which can be tailored to an individual’s needs. Gentle lasers such as the Intellitone require no downtime, leaving you free to resume your daily activities immediately afterward. More aggressive lasers such as CO2 laser resurfacing do require some downtime, but will leave you with dramatic results after just one treatment. During a consultation with Dr. Isaac, she will discuss your needs and decide what type of laser would be right for your skin type and desired results.
Chemical peels have been used for skin renewal for over 100 years, and continue to be an effective and safe method of deep exfoliation that can peel away dead skin layers to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. The strength of a chemical peel can be modified, as well as the acids used, to best suit a particular condition. Dr. Isaac has years of experience performing chemical peels in DC, and can formulate one to suit your needs, whether you want to remove shallow or deep acne scars or even fresh acne.
Micro-needling in DC is a great way to get rid of acne scars. It can be done in as little as fifteen minutes, with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Micro-needling renews the skin through carefully placed microscopic injuries, which stimulate collagen and elastin production. This in turn helps to smooth over acne scars, leaving skin bright and refreshed. The lack of recovery time involved is a benefit for those who have busy lives and lack the time to invest in a lengthy procedure with significant recovery time.
