Acne is a common skin condition caused by clogged hair follicles beneath the skin's surface. Lesions, sometimes known as pimples or zits, appear when dead skin cells and sebum, an oil that helps prevent skin from drying out, clogs the pores.
Teenagers and young adults are more prone to get acne, however, it can also occur during adulthood. At MD Treatment Lounge we offer different peels and kenalog injections to treat acne so that your confidence can be restored.
Acne treatment targets, manages and treats acne cysts and lesions safely without damaging the skin. Acne treatment for inflamed and cystic acne is ideal for anyone who:
Kenalog contains the active ingredient triamcinolone, which is a medication with strong anti-inflammatory properties designed to stop the formation of a nodule and cystic acne. The medication is injected by a medical professional directly into the acne pimple, reducing the inflammation of a future breakout. The lesion will be flattened, and the healing of the area begins almost immediately. Furthermore, Kenalog injections for acne helps reduce the likelihood of acne scars resulting from a breakout.
At MD Treatment Lounge we offer two types of peels containing lactic acid and salicylic acid for spot treatment. Based on your assessment and type of acne, the medical professional will layer products plus spot treat any active acne, apply a hot towel and extract anything that comes to the surface.
This formula contains lactic acid and a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) known as gluconolactone which makes it a suitable treatment option for all Fitzpatricks and skin types. It is designed to provide a gentle exfoliation of the skin with no expected visible peeling or downtime all while smoothening and boosting the brightness of the skin. It features a blend of exfoliating acids and calming ingredients that promote skin renewal while evening skin tone, removing impurities and decongesting pores.
