What is Acne Treatment?

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.

Who is a Good Candidate for Acne Treatment?

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:

  • Is unhappy with the appearance or feel of their scars
  • Is experiencing discomfort caused by acne scars
  • Is experiencing low self-esteem or self-confidence resulting from their acne
  • Has not responded well to other treatments
  • Who has thick (hypertrophic) scars and keloids
  • Is looking to quickly treat large bumps in the inner layers of the skin

How Do Kenalog Injections for Acne Work?

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.

How Do Peels for Acne Work?

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.

The Kenalog Injection Procedure

Our medical professional will assess your skin. Using a very fine needle, a low dose of Kenalog will be injected into the skin of the treatment area.

Patients will notice the cyst or nodule start to flatten almost immediately and/or over the next 24-hours.

The Acne Treatment Procedure


Our medical professional will thoroughly cleanse your skin with an agent that removes excess oils, making sure that your eyes and hair are protected.


Using a hydrating toner, your skin will be degreased.


After selecting the appropriate peel type and depth, the chemical solution will be applied to your skin and will remain on the skin for a specified duration. After, we will neutralize the peel and remove the solution.

Hydrate & Protect

An appropriate broad spectrum SPF and other post-peel products will be applied to calm, hydrate, soothe and protect the skin from UVA / UVB exposure.

Post-Care Treatment (Kenalog Injections)

After receiving a Kenalog acne cyst injection, it is essential to follow the after-care instructions as recommended by our medical professional. This will ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome and reduce the risk of complications.
