Is Acne Surgery A Good Option For Teens?

Teens prone to get acne can find the stress of going back to school triggers breakouts. Acne can be rooted in several issues, stress being one of them. Hormones and age itself can also be at play. Other teens simply have acne all the time, and are embarrassed to be among all their peers.

Acne treatment takes several different forms. Helping people feel comfortable in their own skin is our goal. Acne can be very embarrassing, and can make us self-conscious. Fortunately, there are a few acne treatments that work well at reducing the prevalence of acne. Medications, cleansers, and good hygiene habits can go a long way (we like Ellie Acne Wash). But when acne is severe and persistent, there are additional options to consider.

Acne “Surgery” (comedone extraction)

When other medical therapies for acne don’t seem to be working, acne surgery can be a good option. This procedure involves removing debris from the pores. The treatment can also remove milia, or small keratinous cysts. Using sterile tools, our aestheticians will gently remove debris from clogged pores.

There are two types of acne lesions (comedones):

  • Open (blackheads)
  • Closed (whiteheads)

Acne surgery involves removing the contents of the follicles where comedones have formed. When dealing with active acne, acne surgery is meant to clean the pores and help the skin heal naturally, helping to prevent future breakouts.

We might also use a mild chemical peel to help rejuvenate the skin. Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, removing the affected skin tissues.

After the procedure, patients should use a mild face wash and apply moisturizer twice per day. We may ask that you use sunscreen to protect the skin, as it can be sensitive after a chemical peel. Avoid prolonged sun exposure regardless.

Acne scar surgery is more extensive and may also be recommended to treat acne scarring, including depressed or ice pick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars.

Why Treat It? Won’t It Go Away Eventually?

While it’s true that acne can fade with age, when severe acne is left untreated, scarring can occur, and that might stay with you forever. The better choice is to take steps to curb acne and prevent scarring. Go back to school with brighter, clearer skin. Come in and talk to Dr. Myers or another acne specialist about the best options for you.

5 Causes of Wrinkled, Aged Skin, and 5 Simple Treatments

One day we’ll all wake up and wonder what happened to our youthful, vibrant skin. While you can’t outrun genetics, there are some important factors to consider to keep skin looking healthy.

The Sun

The sun is behind a lot of skin problems, including skin cancer, which is very common in its several forms. The sun, of course, is also behind sunburns, which can lead to premature wrinkles and aged-looking skin. Wear a hat and sunscreen to prevent problems.

Lack of Sleep

The body is tremendously impacted when you don’t get enough sleep. It affects many different systems in your body, including the skin. Some experts say that lack of sleep can change the pH of the skin, and affect the skin’s ability to hydrate itself.

Stress

Stress also affects the body chemically. For example, cortisol levels rise with stress, which can affect various aspects of the skin and the rest of the body. Anxious people also tend to touch, pull, or scratch with tic behaviors, which isn’t good for the skin. You’ve also probably noticed that pimples can be associated with stress. Eczema can also flare up because of stress. It’s pretty clear that the skin doesn’t like it when you’re anxious!

Aging

This one isn’t exactly avoidable, but it’s important to realize that the skin changes with time. It loses its fullness, and wrinkles begin to form with motions repeated countless times over the years.

Squinting

The eyes are one of the most common places for wrinkles to show up. Wrinkles around the eyes can make a person look older, more so than wrinkles in other places. Squinting can contribute to these wrinkles. Squinting is hard behavior to break, because we all like being out in the sun. Others have poor eyesight, and need to squint. Squinting is also simply part of expressing certain emotions. Use sunglasses whenever possible, not just to avoid wrinkles, but to protect your eyes and skin from the sun.

5 Options To Help

Before we talk about treatment options for aged, damaged, or wrinkled skin, it’s important to say that prevention is always better than treatment. Protect and moisturize your skin, and make it a priority! But sun damage, stress, and other factors causing aged skin are almost impossible to avoid over the course of a lifetime. Here are some things you can try to help your skin look its best.

Nourishing Cream

The right cream can help keep skin healthy and reduce the appearance of fine lines. We like the Epionce brand’s nourishing cream to help moisturize and soften the skin.

Botox

For lines that become part of the face after years of eating, squinting, expressing emotion, etc., there aren’t many options better than a Botox injection.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Medical-grade lasers are revolutionizing the way we can improve the appearance of damaged skin cells without harming the surrounding healthy cells.

Lytera

For hyperpigmentation, also called skin discoloration, Lytera is one of our favorite options. It can help minimize an uneven skin tone.

Retinol

Dr. Myers may recommend retinol as a topical option to help treat sun damage. It also minimizes the appearance of fine lines and coarse wrinkles and enhances skin tone and texture. There are several different retinol products that he might recommend.
