The vast majority of people are affected by acne. The reality is that this condition can have a serious impact, causing embarrassment, self-consciousness, or even depression. Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery offers state-of-the-art options to treat active acne and acne scarring.
Candidates for these treatments are struggling with acne or acne scarring that is affecting their quality of life but are otherwise in good health. Patients should be non-smokers that understand what the chosen procedure(s) can achieve and that multiple treatments may be necessary.
Secret™ RF uses microneedles to create micro-channels and deliver fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin. This method allows us to achieve optimal results for all skin types. Radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin in a controlled fashion to trigger the body’s healing response and encourage collagen production. A variety of micro-pin matrices is available to allow us to tailor your treatment to your needs and goals.
A topical anesthetic may be applied for your comfort. After the procedure, you may see some skin redness, swelling, and bruising. These symptoms should resolve within five to seven days.
Dr. Hotchandani performing and discussing the Secret™ RF treatment:
Laser Genesis™ is another treatment option for active acne. This state-of-the-art device uses light energy to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish the signs of aging (such as facial redness and brown spots), and dry up acne-causing bacteria without chemicals. You may feel a gentle warming of the skin during the treatment. You may notice a slight redness immediately following your procedure, which typically resolves within a few hours.
Acne breakouts can cause scarring, which may be difficult to correct. The PicoSure® laser device uses focused light energy to help smooth and revitalize the skin. The laser breaks apart cells in the scar tissue, allowing the body to reabsorb them. PicoSure® also heats the underlying layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and encouraging cell renewal.
