Experience the best in Botox ad non-surgical facelifts from a board certified dermatologist who has performed over 30,000 procedures.
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.
