What Are Acne Treatments in Atlanta?

Acne is an inflammatory process that happens when a pore is clogged by a combination of oil and dead skin cells, creating the perfect environment for bacteria. Although acne is most often associated with teenagers, this condition can strike at almost any age. Acne treatments provide relief from the red, pustular bumps that form on the skin.

Are You Suffering from Acne?

Dr. Huynh and our medical aesthetician treat many patients with severe acne successfully using glycolic acid chemical peel. Glycolic acid 70% (prescription strength) is applied to the skin about once every two weeks. These acids chemically exfoliate the top layers of skin. This exfoliation signals the cells inside the skin to produce more rapidly, which can help hasten skin turnover and prevent pores from becoming clogged. Chemical peels in higher strength are also used to help improve the appearance of acne scars.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is an inflammatory process resulting from abnormal desquamation of the sebaceous glands (oil glands) in the skin. The combination of oil and dead skin cells clogging the pore creates the perfect environment for a certain type of bacteria to proliferate. Clogged pores, along with the presence of bacteria, encourage an inflammatory process in the skin resulting in the red, pustular appearance of acne.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

Treatment visits with glycolic acid peels take about fifteen minutes approximately every two weeks, depending on your skin condition. Some patients will notice drastic improvement after a single treatment, but most will respond after three to four treatments.

How Long Does the Treatment Last?

Most patients show very little to no return of active acne after successful treatment with glycolic peels if they can maintain a healthy skin care regimen. For patients with acne-prone skin, Dr. Huynh recommends staying on a maintenance schedule of a glycolic peel every three months to keep skin clear and healthy.
