Acne Treatments in Miami and Boca Raton, FL
Acne is a serious skin issue that many people will have to deal with in their lifetime. To get the upper hand on acne, consider an acne treatment with Dr. Paul N. Afrooz. Dr. Afrooz cares deeply about his patients and works tirelessly so that they can look and feel their best. He welcomes patients from the Miami, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale areas of South Florida.
What Are Acne Treatments?
Acne treatments include a range of different procedures that are designed to treat acne and reduce the long-term effects it can cause in the skin. The skin on the face can be incredibly sensitive, especially when acne is involved, so Dr. Afrooz carefully reviews all the options with his patients to determine the treatment that will produce the best results. Acne treatments can help diminish the appearance of acne and help reduce the scarring caused by acne.
What Treatments Can Help Get Rid of Acne?
Dr. Afrooz uses two main techniques to eliminate acne: dermabrasion and chemical peels. These treatments exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, where acne is the most severe. After the outer layer of skin is removed, the newly revealed layer is left undamaged and healthy. These techniques can also help reduce the amount of oil found in the skin, which is a common cause of acne.
What Treatments Can Help Get Rid of Acne Scarring?
To reduce the appearance of scars, the techniques mentioned above also apply. Both dermabrasion and chemical peels remove the exterior, damaged layer of skin, and allow new, healthy skin to grow in its place. This new layer of skin will have less visible scarring. In some cases, Dr. Afrooz will use Juvederm®, a dermal filler, to smooth out acne scars. This plumps the skin in areas where it may be recessed as a result of scarring. This method offers instant results that can last up to a year or longer. Another treatment that can help reduce scarring is laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Afrooz performs this technique with the safe and reliable Erbium laser. Like chemical peels and dermabrasion, this technique removes the outermost layer of the skin. As a result, new, undamaged skin grows in its place, with an added benefit of stimulated collagen production in the body. The resultant increase in collagen allows for further skin repair and growth for weeks and months after treatment.
What Can I Expect from Acne Treatment Procedures?
Your acne treatment will depend on the techniques used. All techniques mentioned are generally comfortable, although a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize any discomfort that the patient may experience. Dr. Afrooz prioritizes the safety and comfort of each patient, and performs all acne treatments with the utmost care and precision.
How is Recovery from Acne Treatments?
Recovery from acne treatments will also depend on the techniques used. Dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing typically result in minor swelling or redness following treatment. In addition, we recommend that patients minimize sun exposure following these treatments, because the newly exposed skin will be highly sensitive to sunlight for several weeks. Patients treated with Juvéderm® will typically experience minor swelling or soreness at most, and are able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. The results and their longevity vary by patient and procedure, but Dr. Afrooz will explain what you can expect from your treatment during your consultation.
