Recent advancements in dermatology have made healing acne better and faster than ever before. At Caudle Medical Spa, our focus is on helping you get clear, smooth skin that you can be proud of. No matter how routine or random your outbreaks have become, your treatment plan will be tailored to your exact needs and will help heal current breakouts and prevent new ones. Oftentimes, acne is caused by hormonal changes, which can be managed by a tailored treatment at Caudle Medical Spa. Some of the services we offer for treating your acne include medication, low-level light therapy, fractional radiofrequency, and chemical peels.

Fractional Radiofrequency

Fractional Radiofrequency is a new innovative system that treats current acne outbreaks and the scarring that has been left behind by previous pimples. This procedure uses thermal energy to stimulate clear and healthy skin. To begin the treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the affected area of the skin. Our clinician will make several passes over any of the affected areas to ensure optimal coverage. When the thermal energy is applied to the affected areas, it works wonders by disabling the sebaceous glands to decrease the skin’s oil production. This treatment requires little to no downtime with patients experiencing absolutely no discomfort during the procedure. The healing process takes two to three days, and it is recommended to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers until your skin has fully healed.

LED Light Therapy

Low-Level Light Therapy works by directing specific wavelengths at the affected skin to treat acne. When this light is applied, the skin absorbs the light, which then stimulates cellular regeneration, collagen production, elastin production, and reduces inflammation. The low-level light therapy works to destroy the acne and bacteria surrounding it. The treatment typically takes between twenty and thirty minutes in our office, and there is absolutely no pain associated with the procedure or downtime required. The treatment can require multiple sessions with some patients seeing acne lesions reduced by up to 85% after just one to two sessions.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a relatively new treatment for acne that uses specialized acids to penetrate and purify the skin, and in particular, the sebaceous pores. The sebaceous pores are responsible for oil production, which can be clogged up with dirt, oil, or old skin cells, leading to acne. During treatment, our clinicians apply the peel to the face, which helps rejuvenate the skin and improve its appearance. The chemical peel activates and removes dead skin cells that may be clogging your pores and will also kill the bacteria responsible for pimples and breakouts.

Some patients experience redness on their face after the procedure, which your clinician can recommend the best moisturizing routine for your skin type to help reduce the redness and promote further healing. There are several types of chemical peels to choose from with each treatment being tailored to your skin type to ensure maximum results.

Prescription Medications

For many patients, prescription medications may be the right choice. We offer a multitude of medication options to our patients and will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your skin and lifestyle. Acne medications come in multiple forms, such as topical or oral antibiotics, retinoids, and oral contraceptives. These medications may be used alone or in combination with other treatments that we have available at the Caudle Medical Spa.
