Acne Treatment

Acne at any age is embarrassing, affecting social interaction and self esteem. Acne occurs when the skin’s sebaceous glands become overactive and plugged with cellular debris. A  bacterium accumulates in the blocked gland resulting in pimples, cysts and inflammation.

The treatment for acne depends on the individual and done on a one-to-one basis with a doctor or dermatologist. At Skin Boutique Dr Yelenbaugen will develop your personalized acne treatment plan after a free consultation.

Some of the options may include:

-  oral medications
-  topical creams
-  acne-fighting cosmetics
-  proper skin care regimen
-  chemical peels

Often, a combination of these treatments works best.

Our Palomar® StarLux Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system could be used in a  number of different skin rejuvenation treatments for boosting production of collagen and  treating various skin conditions including acne.
