Laser Acne Treatment
Acne Vulgaris (common acne often referred to as zits or pimples) is the single most troublesome skin condition for teens and young adults. Fortunately, it is also one of the most manageable. At Aesthetic Contours in Beverly Hills and Upland, CA, Dr. Heidari uses the most advanced laser acne treatment and light-based treatments to treat and control acne.
Acne begins when the sebaceous glands become clogged and there is a build-up of acne bacteria called P. acnes. This bacteria build-up causes inflammation and the formation of acne. Acne problems can begin early, even before preteen years, and can continue for some through middle adulthood. For many years, acne sufferers have been forced to rely on topical and oral medications to treat their blemishes, cysts, and inflammation. These medications, such as Accutane and long-term antibiotic therapy, tend to have inconsistent results and many side effects.
If you suffer from acne, proper skin care and laser treatments can prevent long-term problems such as scarring and discoloration of your skin. Everyone has different responses to acne inflammation. Some people scar deeply and others experience no scarring or faint scars. Some experience persistent redness of the skin around acne. Depending on your condition, Dr. Heidari will recommend specific laser treatments and closely monitor your progress, resulting in healthy, beautiful skin.
