Medical Acne Treatments
At BAXT CosMedical®, you will be seen by one of our Board Certified Dermatologists who have many years of experience treating acne patients of all ages and types-adults, children, women, men, severe acne, hormonal acne, food-related acne, you name it, we have seen it and treated it and made it better. You will not see the assistant, PA, nurse practitioner or aesthetician as is commonplace in many offices and spas around the country. You will have all your care delivered by a Board Certified Dermatologist.
It is common for us to see patients who have seen many other doctors before they come to us. We also see patients who have tried to treat their acne on their own and wasted thousands of dollars on ineffective treatments from the internet or retail stores. If you are suffering, please call and schedule an appointment.
During the consultation we will review all prior treatments of all kinds, as well as your history, acne triggers, and do a physical examination. All of our patients leave the consultation with a great, easy skin care program that fits their lifestyle and a budget tailored specifically for them. We often see patients with no health insurance and we are used to needing to make acne regimens affordable! Chemical peels are a mainstay of our acne programs, and they are performed by our Board Certified Dermatologists. We also do acne injections, acne surgery, all performed by our Board Certified Dermatologists. At the consultation we will also discuss more aggressive acne treatments, both pills such as antibiotics, or hormonal medications such as birth control pills or spironolactone. Accutane or isotretinoin is also on the list of medications we prescribe if necessary and we walk you through all the necessary steps and procedures. Many patients do not want to take oral medication of any kind, and we have many laser and light procedures that work extremely well. We offer Photodynamic Therapy with either blue or red light, Isolaz® Acne Treatments of intense pulsed light and suction to kill bacteria and unclog pores, as well as Smoothbeam laser which is FDA-approved for acne and shrinks the oil gland.
Acne scars are among the most common complaints that we address. There are many types of acne scars including red marks, brown marks, and permanent indented scars as well as hypertrophic scars. We have lasers, peels, creams, injections, PRP facial rejuvenation treatments and fillers to address all of these issues and can go over all options with you at your consultation.
Please bring a list or photos of your prior medications with ingredient list if necessary. Please think about any acne triggers that you might have (food, hormonal fluctuations, stress, travel), and bring an open mind. We cannot always cure acne, but we can always make acne better. We can teach you how to manage it so it does not control your life. We look forward to seeing you and helping you with your skin!
