ACNE

#

Without a doubt, the teenager's most despised problem. Acne pimples, cysts, blackheads and whiteheads can ravage a young person's skin and impact self-esteem. Unfortunately, Acne is not just a teenager's disease. Many adults well into their 30's, 40's and even 50's suffer from outbreaks.

Never 'wait' for acne to go away. The best time to begin treatment is immediately when it appears as Acne usually progressively worsens when left untreated. In some instances resistant scarring can take place, which becomes difficult and costly to treat and improve. Therefore, Prevention and early management is reinforced.

At LE Privaté Clinic, we recognize that every patient is different. As such, treatments are individualized and tailored to meet specific skin conditions and patient's expectations.

A good daily skin care routine is important for everyone, but especially so for those with acne. Coupled with LE Privaté Collection Skincare, a variety of effective treatments are available at our clinic:

ACNE SCARRING

There is already enough pressure and drama during the teen and adult years without having to battle acne, but unfortunately 80 percent of the population will experience some form of acne at some point in life. At Le Private Clinic, we empathize with teens and their parents, and adults alike over the emotional as well as physical aspects this skin condition creates. Treating people with acne and acne scarring is some of the most rewarding work we do.

Types of Acne Scars

There are four distinct types of acne scars: Ice Pick Scars – so named for the deep pits they leave, Boxcar Scars – rectangular or oval shaped depressions, Rolling Scars – a waved fibrous pattern, and Hypertrophic Scars – raised scars.

Acne Scar Treatments

Depending on the type of scars and skin condition, treatment options range from lasers, minor surgical procedures to dermal fillers, chemical peels and dermabrasion. Usually, acne scar treatment requires a combination of technologies to deliver the best results.
