ACNE AND ACNE SCARS

Clear Your Skin and Restore Your Confidence

Acne is a common skin disease that affects people of all ages including teenagers and adults. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t get acne because your face is dirty or you eat too much chocolate. Acne is an environmental and genetic disease of the sebaceous gland.

Here at ZENA Medical, we are pleased to offer treatments for acne and acne scars so that you can achieve the beautiful, clear skin you deserve.

Acne and Acne Scar Treatments

Over the years, we’ve discovered that as long as acne is tackled early and aggressively, it’s a curable skin disease. Curing acne takes more than simply applying the right creams to your face. Our doctors address acne through a four-pronged approach, which incorporates the following:

  • A customized topical regimen.
  • Surgical extractions.
  • Lasers.
  • Oral medication

 

Depending on the severity of your acne, isotretinoin (Accutane®) may also be used.  This medication acts on the follicles to prevent plugging and shrinks the sebaceous glands to decrease oil production.

While most offices prescribe Accutane daily for six months, Dr. Zenovia will customize your does to limit the side effects while still achieving optimum results. You may find that you require a very low-dose of Accutane to cure your acne. Our low-dose Accutane treatment plans are safe and completely side-effect free. You can count on us to design a customized treatment plan to thoroughly address your acne. With our hands-on, four-pronged approach, we can help you become completely acne-free.
