Treatments for Acne

Prescription Medications

There are a number of medications, topical and/or oral, that may be utilized to assist in treating your acne. Our providers will determine the best course of action during your consultation. Medication for your acne vulgaris is available in-house or by prescription. Tretinoin Cream and Gel 0.05% strength is available for purchase at The Caudle Center.

LED Light Therapy

Low-Level Light Therapy works by directing specific wavelengths at the affected skin to treat acne. When this light is applied, the skin absorbs the light, which then stimulates cellular regeneration, collagen production, elastin production, and reduces inflammation.

The low-level light therapy works to destroy the acne and bacteria surrounding it. The treatment typically takes between twenty and thirty minutes in our office, and there is absolutely no pain associated with the procedure or downtime required. The treatment can require multiple sessions, with some patients seeing acne lesions reduced by up to 85% after just one to two sessions.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a relatively new treatment for acne that uses specialized acids to penetrate and purify the skin, and in particular, the sebaceous pores. The sebaceous pores are responsible for oil production, which can be clogged up with dirt, oil, or old skin cells, leading to acne.

During treatment, our clinicians apply the peel to the face, which helps rejuvenate the skin and improve its appearance. The chemical peel activates and removes dead skin cells that may be clogging your pores and will also kill the bacteria responsible for pimples and breakouts.

Some patients experience redness on their face after the procedure. Your clinician can recommend the best moisturizing routine for your skin type to help reduce the redness and promote further healing. There are several types of chemical peels to choose from, each treatment being tailored to your skin type to ensure maximum results.

Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System

CLENZIDerm M.D. is a three-step acne treatment containing clinically-proven benzoyl peroxide (BPO) that penetrates deep into pores to help control adult acne for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion. Complete acne treatment specifically formulated for normal to oily skin to help treat acne where it starts.

Acne Scarring

Acne Scarring

Forty million Americans deal with acne on a regular basis, and about half of those people have to deal with acne scarring afterward.

The leftover scars from acne can cause major stress in your day-to-day life. Many people feel that their scars negatively affect their self-confidence, having lasting physical, emotional and psychological effects, even depression.

Treatments for Acne Scarring

Traditional Microneedling

Microneedling is one of the safest and most effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin and rejuvenate the underlying tissue. As a part of our body’s natural aging process, our skin experiences a loss of collagen and elastin, which results in the formation of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles. Along with the natural aging process, the visible appearance of your skin can be altered by environmental factors or elements of your lifestyle, such as exposure to the elements, uneven skin tones, stretch marks, or dark spots.

Microneedling devices use very fine, short needles that can be slowly rolled over the skin by a medical professional. When the needles pass over the skin, they gently poke through the surface, creating micro-channels that are invisible to the naked eye but help spur the natural rejuvenation process. Due to the short recovery time, minimal discomfort, and life-changing results, microneedling has quickly become one of the most popular skin treatments we offer.

Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling
acne treatment  with microneedling in Tennessee

The Caudle Center utilizes state-of-the-art equipment, a fractional radiofrequency microneedling device called Fractora from InMode. Once your acne flare-up is controlled, the providers at The Caudle Center can use the Fractora system to stimulate clear, healthy skin. The Fractora system heats the skin and disables sebaceous glands. This decreases oil production and the pimples that follow. Fractora can be used in all cases of acne scarring. You will first be evaluated by a provider at The Caudle Center, who will recommend a treatment plan consistent with your goals.

Procedure: Your face will have to be clean and free of any products. After adequate topical anesthesia, the provider will begin the Fractora treatment. We will work in all regions of the face and neck that need improvement, making several passes over areas to ensure maximum results are achieved, adjusting the energy applied to the type of skin and desired effect. Most patients tolerate this procedure well without any additional anesthesia, nitrous oxide, or sedation. Occasional spasms of underlying muscles occur when the radiofrequency is released into the skin and generally causes more of a startling effect than causing discomfort.

Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure and report feeling “wind-chapped” after the numbing medication wears off. Patients experience mild swelling and redness in the treated region for 3-5 days and have mild skin peeling. You should use gentle cleansers and moisturizers until all areas have healed, and then you can resume your beauty regime, focusing on sun protection, as you should have little unprotected exposure for 2-3 weeks.

Most patients feel the amount of discomfort is mild to moderate. Downtime depends upon the extent of treatment and is usually 3-5 days of heal time.

Low-Level Light Therapy

LED and Laser Diode light therapy use part of the visible light spectrum at a specific wavelength to treat acne scarring. The skin absorbs this light, which then stimulates cellular regeneration and promotes the production of oxygen radicals that lead to the destruction of certain acne-causing bacteria. The process also promotes collagen and elastin production, reduces inflammation, and speeds up the healing process.

After a series of LED treatments, your skin will appear clearer, brighter, and smoother. LED treatment is clinically proven to reduce acne lesions by up to 85%, with more than 75% of clients reporting excellent results.

The treatment itself is very relaxing. After cleansing your skin, you’ll lie on a table with the light panel positioned over the area being treated. You’ll probably find it very calming and may even fall asleep. After 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the procedure, you’ll be able to reapply your makeup and continue your day. There is no pain associated with this treatment. There is also no downtime.

Body Contouring

Body Contouring

The Evolve technology uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to provide targeted skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and fat reduction.

Evolve is effective for refining skin and reducing fat in the following areas, with the option to treat multiple problem sections in a single session:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist and flank
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Our Body Contouring Methods

All three modalities can be performed almost simultaneously from the same device in contact with your skin.

Evolve Trim

Evolve Trim targets dimpled skin and cellulite. Evolve Trim offers a unique solution to a common problem and provides a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. This treatment will help reshape the body and smooth the appearance of the skin.

The Evolve Trim treatment works by using radiofrequency technology to apply volumetric heat deep into the skin’s subdermal layers. The heat is combined with a vacuum and controlled energy pulses to deliver uniform results across the treatment area.

Because the heat is delivered to the subdermal layers of the skin with RF energy, the patient experiences no discomfort or burning sensations. The treatment requires no downtime, and you may return to regular activities immediately after treatment.

Evolve Tite

Evolve Tite remodels the skin by tightening loose or sagging areas. This quick and easy procedure can be customized to meet your specific concerns. It can treat loose skin on the tummy after pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin on the upper arms, and other trouble spots.

The Evolve Tite treatment is delivered via a hands-free applicator. Applicators can be applied to multiple body areas at once. The Evolve Tite procedure was developed under very strict medical guidelines and has been optimized to provide maximum results, even when multiple areas are targeted.

Evolve Tite works by using radiofrequency technology to apply volumetric heat to the skin’s subdermal layers. The radiofrequency technology ensures the heat is delivered uniformly, so no area of the application area is over or undertreated.

Evolve Tite is recommended for anyone who seeks natural-looking skin remodeling. It can give skin a tighter, more youthful appearance.

It is also important to know that there is no downtime or recovery period with Evolve Tite. The procedure is quick and painless, and you can return to regular activities immediately.

Evolve Tone

Sometimes you don’t get the results you want no matter how many reps you do in the gym or miles you log running on the road. If you’re seeking to tighten and tone your body and muscles, Evolve Tone might be the answer.

Evolve Tone can add definition and enhance your natural physique. It is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime and won’t leave you with unsightly scars. Evolve Tone can increase muscle strength and tone.

Evolve Tone relies on a different technology than Evolve Tite or Evolve Trim. Evolve Tone uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate the muscles and cause involuntary contractions. Your muscles contract in a way that replicates a workout — sweat not required. The treatment can be used on many areas of the body, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks

Chemical peels are tried and true.

Chemical peels have been around for a long time for good reason—they work. See how a chemical peel could heal your skin woes, from acne scars and uneven skin tone to melasma and fine lines and wrinkles.

Everything old is new again, and chemical peels are experiencing a rebirth of sorts as growing numbers of cosmetic doctors turn to these oldies but goodies to address a wide range of skin concerns and conditions.

In 2015, there were 603,305 chemical peels performed, up nearly 25 percent from 2014, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports. Chemical peels are in high demand. What’s great about chemical peels is that they’re low-tech and not intimidating when compared to lasers, and they address the same problems—skin discoloration, texture, and wrinkles. Women have been using peels for over 2,000 years! Cleopatra soaked in milk baths to smooth her skin. The active ingredient in milk is lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA) and these acids (along with beta-hydroxy acids or BHAs) are still among the most commonly used types in modern peels.

Superficial (Mild) peels

A series of mild chemical peels—on the face, neck, hands, and/or chest—every few weeks is great for busy people because they get significant results with minimal downtime. These are sometimes called the “lunchtime peel.” The weaker peels are the AHA peels or fruit acid peels, most commonly Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid, and Lactic Acid, and can help improve acne scars, skin tone, and texture, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce the effects of sun damage. These types of peels remove dead cells and debris to regenerate skin cells wit
