  Pimples (Acne)  
  Acne is a very common problem affecting about 80% population. It usually starts in the teens and can lead to permanent scarring of the facial skin. Some patients develop acne not just on the face but also on the neck, shoulder, back and chest. The scars are typically depressed and may be hyper-pigmented or darker in color. There are various modalities of treatment available to treat the newly erupting acne and so also the scars left behind by the old lesions. The newer treatments like LASER can almost certainly ensure a uniformly excellent result.

A quick look at your queries...
 

AM I THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT FOR ACNE ?

Any patient getting acne eruptions needs to be treated to control the problem at an early stage before the skin gets permanently scarred. If you already have scars on the face and are also getting new acne, the fresh acne eruptions need to be treated first and controlled completely before treating the scars.

WHAT ARE THE UNCERTAINTIES AND RISKS ?

The treatment modalities for are generally very safe in the hands of a qualified experienced cosmetic surgeon. Certain treatments like LASER are not advisable during pregnancy. However, they have no ill effects on future pregnancies in any way. The medicines used for controlling the acne need to be administered within the prescribed doses to avoid any side effects. Some patients having a tendency to tan or pigment very quickly can develop some hyper pigmentations following treatment of scars. Although superficial scars can almost completely be removed, the deeper scars can be reduced and made shallow but not completely removed.

HOW DO I PLAN MY TREATMENT ?

During your first consultation, doctor would examine your skin type, the magnitude of your problem and discuss the plausible causes with you. if you are still getting fresh acne, please tell your doctor, because you may need to control them before treating the scars. If you have used any cream or medications, please provide all the details. You may begin your treatment right during your first visit itself.

HOW LONG WOULD I NEED TO STAY IN THE HOSPITAL ?

None of the treatments for acne or acne scars require hospitalization. Most treatments are done as out patient in the clinic and take up to 30 minutes.

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL ?

The treatments are totally painless and most treatments need no anesthesia.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT USED ?

The treatment of active acne is in the form of certain creams for local application to the facial skin and some oral medications. Any contributing factors like dandruff or hormonal imbalance are also treated. The latest treatment available is CLEAR TOUCH LASER. This is a LASER approved by U.S. F.D.A. One may need 2 to 6 sessions of LASER at weekly interval but the treatment can almost certainly ensure a complete control of fresh acne. Once the active acne are controlled, the scars can be reduced with the help of resurfacing techniques like dermabrasion, dermaplaning, chemical peeling, Lasers, Radio surgery or injection of skin fillers like Hyaluronic acid. While most of these are one time treatments, chemical peeling or fillers can be repeated more than once.

WHAT CARE DO I NEED TO TAKE AFTER THE TREATMENT ?

No specific care is required after the CLEAR TOUCH LASER for active acne. One does not develop any redness and no rest or leave is required.

If chemical peel is done for treatment of scars, skin may appear darker for about 5 ~ 7 days. The superficial layers of the skin would then peel off and the skin would look much better. Following the resurfacing LASER or RADIO SURGERY for the depressed scars and pits, the skin may take 3 ~ 4 weeks to recover. Till then, you may be advised to use antiseptic cream with moisturizers. You would be advised to avoid exposure to direct sunlight for up to a couple of months. You may wear a sunscreen protection before going outdoors.

WHEN CAN I RESUME MY DAILY ACTIVITIES AND JOIN MY DUTIES ?

There is no rest or leave required for the treatment of active acne. You may not be able to wear make-up for about a week after a chemical peel and for about 3 weeks following resurfacing LASER for scars.

YOUR NEW LOOK

You would appreciate the clear skin, free of active acne within a month after beginning your treatment. Although it's impossible to get rid of very deep scars altogether, they would improve considerably as the treatment progresses. The positive results of your treatment would be permanent for you to enjoy.
