At Anh Vu, M.D., we specialize in a range of acne treatments to provide patients with the comprehensive care required to reduce acne and eliminate acne scars. Patients in the St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Palm Coast, and Daytona Beach areas can rely on Dr. Anh Vu for safe, effective acne treatments.
What Are Acne Treatments?
Acne treatments are specially designed procedures that target the causes of acne and eliminate acne from the skin. Most of these procedures work by exfoliating the outermost layer of skin where acne resides, and encourages the growth of healthy, undamaged skin that takes its place. These treatments can also help shrink the pores and eliminate blackheads, which are both areas that usually need attention in patients with acne.
What Acne Treatments Are Available?
At Anh Vu, M.D., we offer only the most effective acne treatments to ensure that patients can achieve the greatest results possible. These treatments currently include:
Harmony Rejuve Facial
The Harmony Rejuve Facial is our signature facial treatment, which is tailored for each patient’s individual goals. We customize this treatment specifically for acne. This facial includes a deep cleansing, followed by extractions to clear the pores. The treatment ends with a gentle exfoliating massage, leaving the skin refreshed and renewed.
The salicylic peel is designed around the use of salicylic acid, which is particularly effective at penetrating and clearing the pores. A series of salicylic peels is effective for patients with acne because clogged pores can be one of the leading causes for acne breakouts.
High Frequency Treatment
High frequency treatment involves the use of safe, high frequency electric current on the skin. This treatment eliminates toxins and acne-causing bacteria in the skin. It also exfoliates dead skin cells and increases collagen production for added benefits.
VI Acne Peel
The VI acne peel utilizes the power of Benzoyl peroxide, enabling patients to see an improvement in acne-prone skin in just seven days. This treatment is effective for patients as young as 12, and is virtually painless. We recommend a dermaplaning treatment immediately prior and a Harmony Rejuve Facial once 6 weeks have passed post-peel.
Glycolic peels offer effective acne treatment by reducing the size of pores and decreasing oil in the skin. This treatment also encourages the exfoliation of dead skin cells and creates a radiant skin tone immediately following treatment.
How Are Acne Treatments Administered?
Facials and chemical peels are gentle, comfortable procedures, and simply involve cleansing the skin and applying the desired treatment formula. High frequency treatments are also quite comfortable, and are administered using a special handheld device. These treatments are typically performed within an hour, although the high frequency treatments are performed considerably faster.
What Can I Expect After My Acne Treatment?
Most acne treatments cause exfoliation or peeling of the skin, meaning that patients can expect some redness or tenderness for a few days after treatment. However, once the redness fades, you will notice significantly more vibrant skin and a reduction in the appearance of acne. Many patients have multiple acne treatments to achieve their desired results.
