Acne-prone skin can be a challenging condition to manage. Whether you’re a teenager dealing with hormonal changes or an adult still struggling with breakouts, the journey to clear and healthy skin can feel like an uphill battle. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, the good news is that Dr. Ostad offers a range of treatments that, when combined strategically, can significantly improve the appearance of acne-prone skin. Combining treatments like Diamond Glow and LED Light Therapy as well as AviClear Laser Treatment and Cutera Laser Genesis while using a customized medical-grade skincare routine can help you tackle acne head-on.

Before we dive into the treatments, it’s essential to understand what causes acne-prone skin. Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Factors such as genetics, hormonal fluctuations, diet, and skincare routines can all contribute to acne.

Combining Diamond Glow and LED Light Therapy 

Diamond Glow is a 3-in-1 luxurious treatment that offers a blend of serums customized based on your skin concerns. With the use of our diamond tip combined with infused serums, this treatment delicately exfoliates, nourishes, and hydrates your skin, unveiling a luminous and smooth complexion. Each step is designed to enhance your skin’s natural glow and leave you feeling rejuvenated. 

Enhancing the Diamond Glow experience, we incorporate our LED light therapy to address specific skin concerns such as acne, anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, and lymphatic drainage! The LED lights work beneath the skin to stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, and promote cellular rejuvenation. LED light therapy harnesses the power of specific wavelengths of light to combat acne. Blue light kills acne-causing bacteria, while red light reduces inflammation and promotes healing. 

Combining AviClear and Cutera Laser Genesis

AviClear is a revolutionary laser treatment that specifically targets the source of acne- the oil glands called sebaceous glands in your skin, treating active acne and preventing future acne that may occur. AviClear is safe for all skin types, tones, and acne severities. This treatment is ideal for anyone who suffers from mild, moderate, or severe acne, as well as anyone who may be an Accutane candidate due to resistant acne but no longer wants to feel restricted with birth control pills intake or other side effects of Accutane. 

After completing 3 sessions of AviClear, we typically recommend our patients to treat their acne scarring with our Laser Genesis from Cutera. Cutera Laser Genesis is an exceptional treatment for acne, rosacea, and acne scarring. This laser works by stimulating collagen remodeling, targeting microvascular (tiny vessels), and shrinking oil glands. 

The Importance of Using Medical-Grade Skincare: 

While the advanced treatments mentioned above can work wonders for acne-prone skin, their effectiveness is greatly enhanced when complemented by a customized medical-grade skincare routine. A one-size-fits-all approach rarely works when it comes to skincare, especially for individuals with acne-prone skin, as everyone’s skin is unique. Dr. Ostad can evaluate your skin’s specific needs, whether it’s excessive oil production, stubborn breakouts, or post-acne scarring, and design a tailored regimen to address those concerns. 

Medical-grade skincare products contain active ingredients in higher concentrations than over-the-counter options, making them more effective at treating and preventing acne. These products are also carefully selected to work in harmony with your prescribed treatments, ensuring that your skincare routine is not only efficient but also safe for your skin. Regular use of medical-grade skincare not only aids in controlling acne but also supports overall skin health, leaving you with a complexion that’s clear, balanced, and radiant. Remember, consistency is key, and with the guidance of Dr. Ostad and his nurses, your skincare routine can be a crucial ally in your journey to healthier, acne-free skin.

The Importance of Combining Treatment Options for Acne: 

Each of these treatments offer unique benefits in the fight against acne, but the real magic happens when they are combined strategically. Some lasers help with preventing and treating active acne. Other treatments are a better choice for maintaining your overall skin texture and treating acne scarring.  While one treatment has different purposes, it may not solve all of your issues entirely.

Overall, here are the main benefits of combination treatments:

1. Comprehensive Approach 

Combination treatments address various aspects of acne, from clogged pores to inflammation and scarring, ensuring a more comprehensive solution. They can work together to provide clear and glowing skin. 

2. Enhanced Results

When treatments are combined, they often amplify each other’s effectiveness, leading to quicker and more noticeable results. For instance, Aviclear works better at treating and preventing active acne from forming by shrinking your sebaceous glands, while Laser Genesis helps by reducing the appearance of previous acne scarring. As a result, you’ll have fewer acne scars and future acne will be prevented. The procedures will enhance one another, helping you achieve the results that you want in the end.

3. Tailored to You

After a consultation with Dr. Ostad, he will be able to tailor a customized treatment plan for you based on your skin type and concerns, maximizing the results and treating your concerns. 

Combination Treatments for Better Results

Acne-prone skin doesn’t have to be a never-ending battle. By harnessing the power of combination treatments like Diamond Glow, Aviclear Laser Treatment, LED Light Therapy, Cutera Laser Genesis, and medical-grade skincare, you can take control of your skin’s health. Remember, consulting with Dr. Ostad is the first step to developing a personalized acne treatment plan that will help you achieve the clear, radiant skin you deserve.
