If you have ever tried to eliminate blemishes on your own, you know that acne is a challenging condition to manage. Medical-grade acne treatments are the best solution for this common skin condition. Springs Aesthetics offers acne treatments for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, and other areas of Colorado.
What Are Acne Treatments?
Our acne treatments include procedures that address each level of skin health that contributes to the development of blemishes and acne. Acne begins on the skin surface where oils, dirt, and dead skin collect.
Eventually, these combine into a substance that penetrates and clogs the pores, giving bacteria an ideal environment in which to thrive. This leads to inflammation and infection that can infiltrate the surrounding skin. Effective acne treatments need to correct every facet of blemish development without drying out the skin or causing additional irritation.
How Much Do Acne Treatments Cost?
The average cost of our acne treatments vary based upon the combination of therapies that you choose. Dr. Burroughs and his aestheticians work with you to define a course of treatment. At that time, we can let you know the cost. For your convenience, we do offer financing options through CareCredit® and Alphaeon®.
Am I a Candidate for Acne Treatments?
The ideal candidate for our medical acne treatments is a person who has chronic acne that has not responded to non-prescription treatments, as well as those who require acne scar treatment.
How Are Acne Treatments Performed?
Springs Aesthetics offers acne spot treatment for occasional blemishes, cystic acne treatment, and other options. Some of the more common options that Dr. Burroughs recommends are:
- Cosmeceuticals, a category of medical-grade skin care products
- Chemical peels to deep clean the pores and remove dead skin cells and other debris from the surface
- HydraFacial® to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, balance, soothe and nourish the skin
- Dermalinfusion to infuse the skin with key nutrients
- Microneedling for acne scars
- CO2 laser, Fractora, Morpheus8, IPL, and other technologies to restructure the skin
What is Recovery Like After Acne Treatments?
You may have some downtime after your chemical peel or laser treatments. At-home treatments do not require any downtime.
How Long Will the Results of Acne Treatments Last?
Acne is a chronic condition that requires routine maintenance to keep your skin healthy and balanced. Over time, you will have fewer breakouts, and your blemishes will not be as severe. It is important to continue with the treatment regimen that is recommended by Dr. Burroughs to keep your acne under control.
