Acne is a very complex and frustrating skin condition that affects men and women of all ages.
At Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center in Madison, WI we take a comprehensive approach when treating acne or problematic skin. A combination of at-home skincare products, skin treatments, diet adjustments, and potential lifestyle changes will be discussed at an initial consultation.
Not only does acne come in many forms, it can be triggered by a number of different causes. It is a skin condition which can have one or all of the following: clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), inflamed pimples (pustules), and deeper lumps (nodules). It can occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Although most teenagers get some form of acne, people in their twenties, thirties, forties, and even older adults can develop it. Breakouts can be caused by a number of different factors, including hormones, bad skin care habits, diet, and lifestyle.
If you or someone you know is struggling with acne, the first step is to consult a skin specialist. Use the form at the right to get started today. Radiance Skin Therapy offers a wide range of medical grade skincare products and treatments that can help. We will work with you to determine the best course of action for you and your skin. The rewards for a successful treatment can include a better complexion and higher self-esteem.
Here are a few of the options Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center in Madison offers for treating acne:
M22™ Universal IPL
M22™ is an in-office treatment that treats inflamed acne with a gentle, minimal downtime approach. M22™ addresses both acne bacteria as well as pigmentation and redness often associated with acne. This is a fast “lunch time” treatment with less side effects than most prescribed acne medications. Often a series of 5-6 treatments is suggested for optimal results.
LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is an in-office treatment that is FDA-approved, completely non-invasive, and painless treatment with no downtime. There are different LED Light options for different skin concerns. These options (blue, red, and a combination of the two) can help kill the acne-causing bacteria in the skin, reduce breakouts, calm inflammation, and more. Often a series is suggested for optimal results. Go to our LED Light Therapy page for more information.
Chemical Peels are effective for acne clients because they can reduce inflammation in the skin, destroy acne causing bacteria, and clear out pores to prevent future breakouts. Exfoliation in this manner can also help to speed up the post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) caused by breakouts. Typically a series of four to six superficial chemical peels spaced two to four weeks apart can help get acne under control. Maintenance treatments can be anywhere from four to eight weeks apart. Additionally, LED Light Therapy can be done in conjunction with Chemical Peels. Click to go to our Chemical Peel page for more information.
Hydrafacial is the only hydra-dermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtown. This effective treatment delivers the results of microdermabrasion yet is soothing, moisturizing, and safe for any skin type. Click to go to our HydraFacial page for more information.
Do you have questions?
Your skin is the largest organ of the body. In order to maintain the health and integrity of your skin, it is critical that you take care of it, not only from the outside, but from the inside as well. Providing your skin with the right sort of nutrition can affect just as much change as topical treatments. Pairing the right supplements for your skin can help you to see faster and more lasting results! Radiance carries a few great options of Vitamin A, Skin Omegas, and Skin Accumax. Once we get to know you and your skin, we can help you know which is going to be most appropriate for your skin’s needs.
Your skin loves Vitamin A, especially if you have acne, are prone to acne, or have oily skin with the occasional breakout. Vitamin A is a potent antioxidant that helps reduce sebum production, encourages healthy cell production and growth, and can strengthen your skin’s firm and healthy tissue.
Many have had success pairing Vitamin A with the Skin Omegas. Omega 3 fatty acids are known as the “good fat” and are a vital part of a balanced diet. They can also enhance your skin treatment results and calm the inflammation caused by acne. Omega 3 plays a crucial role in the health of your skin. All skin types can benefit from Omega 3, including dry, sensitive, and acneic skin. Omega-3 also helps to increase hydration and overall smoothness.
Skin Accumax contains a synergistic combination of vitamins and plant nutrients which address the underlying factors of problem skin. This unique combination of ingredients helps to improve skin texture and clarity.
