What Is Acne Treatment with Spectra Laser?
Unlike other procedures, the acne laser treatment is virtually pain-free with no downtime. The three-step treatment process uses a specific wavelength, combined with a photo-enhancer lotion, to control the inflammation of acne, reduce oil or sebum production, and induce cell turnover.
How Much Do Acne Treatments Cost in Clarkston, MI?

When Will I See the Results of my Acne Laser Treatment?

Can a Chemical Peel Help with Acne?
A chemical peel can be effective to not only treat acne but also reduce the appearance of the scars it leaves behind. A chemical peel works by reducing hyperpigmentation in acne scars and unclogging pores by causing controlled injury to the surface of the skin.
At Clarkston Dermatology, we offer a range of chemical peels ranging from light to deep peels with ingredients that specifically target acne and help treat it at its source. Glycolic and lactic acids are popular choices for treating acne as they gently remove dead skin cells that clog pores. Beta-hydroxy acids like salicylic acid are also effective at fighting acne to help correct abnormal shedding of skin cells that clogs pores and causes blemishes.
What Is Acne Extraction Treatment?
Acne extraction is the safest way to clear whiteheads and blackheads from the skin, and it's often recommended when other acne treatments have not worked to clear your skin. Never try to pop a pimple at home: it only increases the risk of skin damage and scarring while spreading infection. A dermatologist carefully extracts pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads using sterile tools and a precise technique to avoid making acne more noticeable or causing scars.
In addition to removing blackheads and whiteheads, extraction can be used to get rid of very painful and deep acne cysts or nodules by first injecting the blemish with corticosteroids or using sterile tools to open the blemish and remove the contents.
