Treatment For Acne from Dr. Amanda Lloyd in encinitas ca

What causes acne?

Acne does not discriminate. It impacts the skin and self-esteem of millions of women and men, at virtually all ages. The skin has numerous pores, acne breakouts occur when these pores become plugged with sebum (oil) and shed skin cells. Bacteria flourish in this pore-clogging cocktail, triggering inflammation and infection. The depth that the plug occurs determines the type of lesion you have from a deep painful one under the skin to the superficial pus bumps to blackheads and whiteheads.

Hormonal fluctuations cause the body to produce excess oil, so these factors influence acne flare-ups:

  • Puberty
  • Menstruation
  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Stress
  • Anabolic steroids and certain other medications
  • Extreme workouts

Comprehensive therapy for acne and acne scarring

You can read for hours and hours on the various online forums for the treatment of acne and acne scarring. Unfortunately, much of what is online is not evidence based and is not effective. If you truly want your acne and acne scarring taken care of, waste no more time reading online and trying random treatments that are ineffective. Call now and make an appointment with board certified dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd who specializes in acne and acne scarring treatments. She will work together with you to create a comprehensive treatment regimen to get your skin beautiful so you Look Stunning. Always. Once your acne is under control she will use advanced laser therapy to help rid your complexion of scarring so there are no reminders of the “terrible acne days.”

Advantages of laser therapy

  • Non-invasive.
  • Laser genesis shrinks sebaceous glands, resulting in less oil production.
  • Clear + Brilliant and Laser Genesis stimulate collagen, for a fresh, radiant complexion.
  • As a side benefit, Laser Genesis treatment reduces dark spots and sun damage.
  • Gentle Clear + Brilliant laser therapy does not cause dry skin like topical treatments can, and carries none of the systemic risks of oral acne medications.
