As the average age of acne sufferers increase to 26 year-olds the treatment options have become more sophisticated. Dr. Reza Tirgari is the cosmetic surgeon of Avalon Laser, his acne scar treatment options include microdermabrasion, chemical peel, photo facial (IPL treatment) and laser scar removal (Fraxel).
Laser treatments have the advantage of killing bacteria. Killing bacteria reduces pressure and pain, plus the skin heals faster when bacteria are gone. Finding the best treatment for your skin type is essential to overcoming acne.
Self-treatment often leads to the need for acne scar removal, so it’s best to ask a physician before seeking treatment. Different skin types respond differently to each treatment, so it’s best to ask a trained physician for their recommendation.
Controlling acne is tricky, but with the professional treatment, you can do it! The statistics in the infographic were provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
