Regardless of age, many patients suffer from acne. Over 85% of adolescents and young adults are afflicted by acne and to no surprise, it is the most common skin disease treated by physicians. Acne occurs when there is an overabundance of natural bacteria Propionibacterium acnes present in the skin. Inflammation is caused when the bacteria blocks follicles - the blockage moves into the dermis which results in red pumps, pustules and nodules. Treatment may include oral and topical medications, laser treatments, fractional skin resurfacing and chemical peels.Request a Consultation
Many salon/spas that claim to be medical spas do not offer on site medical physicians that oversee and act as liaison between the clients and technicians. Medical Spas are unique in that they utilize the expertise and knowledge of a medical doctor on site. For those requiring immediate post operative care after laser or peel therapies it is imperative that a board certified physician that is certified and experienced in all aesthetic medicine be on site to guide her licensed professional staff.
