During the consult, the skin is examined and tested to determine its condition. Based on the test results a home care regimen is prescribed including topical and possible oral medications. Your skin is given an initial clean up to remove the bacteria and as many comedones as possible.
Clean ups using chemical peeling agents like Glycolic/Salicylic peels are suggested to reduce the chances of scarring. The number of sessions and frequency depends on the severity of the acne. We recommend between 4 – 8 sessions of acne peels 2 weeks apart to reduce the acne and decrease the scarring. The home care is continued for a 1 year post treatments to prevent recurrence.
