Forehead Acne

One of the most common skin conditions in the U.S. is acne, which affects an estimated 17 million people in our country alone. Acne occurs when pores are clogged on a person’s face, chest, back, neck, or upper arms. While acne is not a life threatening problem, it can cause low self-esteem by making one feel self-conscious about their appearance. It can also cause scarring if it is severe enough, further damaging confidence. Dr. Peter Malouf is highly trained in the practice of laser dermatology, which uses lasers or other light devices to remove excess oil and dead skin cells, thus helping unclog the pores. Patients usually show improvement after just a few sessions, but progress is often dependent on the severity of the acne. After a consultation is complete, it can be determined if this treatment may work for you better than conventional acne treatments that involve washes and creams.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy can easily be customized to your skin type and condition, and patients typically can return to work immediately following the procedure. IPL uses light to reduce oil gland production and help kill the bacteria that cause acne. Available treatment areas include the hands, shoulders, face, neck, and chest. Intense pulsed light works by infiltrating the top layer of skin and working upon the underlying dermis. The light seals blood vessels and destroys unwanted pigment and hair follicles. While there is zero down time associated with this procedure, minor redness and swelling may be present for up to three days after the session. On average, most skin conditions will take three to five treatments to get the “full effect”. When compared to other forms of skin rejuvenation surgery photorejuvenation is by far the most convenient, with many patients getting treatments on their lunch break, it is the perfect treatment for those with a hectic schedule.

Remove Acne Scars

Even if someone hasn’t had acne in years, many people are left with small acne scars on their face and body. With laser skin resurfacing, these scars can be erased. 30 to 40 minutes before the treatment a topical anesthetic cream will be applied, and then the laser resurfacing will begin. A minor warmth is felt on the face while the procedure is underway, but little to no pain is felt. The high energy beam of light causes the top layer of skin to peel off and reveal a layer of new, healthy skin. This advanced laser system leaves small bridges of untreated skin, making healing much faster than other skin laser treatments. The resurfacing takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the treatment area size and location, meaning it is possible to do over a lunch break.  After the treatment, your face will have some redness with minor swelling, but discomfort will subside after a day or two. There is zero downtime associated with the procedure, though some pain may persist five to seven days following the treatment.
