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, which 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 with each treatment being tailored to your skin type to ensure maximum results.
