Acne Treatments in Newport Beach, Orange County CA
Acne is one of the skin challenges in life that does not discriminate! Whether as a teen or adult, male or female or even those with good genetics, acne seems to seek out and wreak havoc on skin. Some people might be blessed enough to experience acne only during changes in hormones (puberty and pregnancy), while others may experience a lifetime battling cystic acne and severe acne that can cover large portions of the face, chest, or upper back, can be painful or red, and can even leave long term scarring and indentations.

Who is Acne Treatments Recommended for?
Acne treatments are recommended from anyone suffering from acne or scarring and discoloration as a result of acne.
It is most beneficial to seek the guidance of a physician that specializes in acne prevention, acne treatment, and acne scarring to better determine what your best acne treatment options would be. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bandy can help individuals find the best acne treatment options available.
To start, it is imperative for anyone either suffering from acne, or trying to prevent it to adopt a good skin care regimen. During your consultation, Dr. Bandy will assess your skin in order to determine what type of acne is present and what type of treatment will be most effective. The office carries numerous skin care lines, as well as Dr. Bandy’s personal formulation of skincare products, in order to offer different options depending on a patient’s skin. Many of the acne products recommended are formulated specifically for skin prone to acne breakouts and may include ingredients such as: Benzyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Sulfur. These main ingredients are available in a variety of strengths, with the strongest of the ingredients being present in products available at physician’s offices or as prescription medications. Products specially formulated to treat acne do so in a variety of ways, including antibiotics that kill the bacteria that can cause acne inflammation, removing excess oils from the skin, accelerating the growth of new skin cells and/or removing present dead skin cells that can help to clog pores and create an acne inflammatory response.
In addition topical products and antibiotics, Dr. Bandy’s office offers another effective acne treatment in the form of a light laser treatment called a “buff and shine”. Microneedling (with or without PRP) is also available at the office in order to help even the skin tone and texture once acne clears.
