Obtain acne and acne scar treatment with RewindMD

Acne is a common skin condition that can happen to anyone: men, women, children, and patients of all ethnicities. And everyone who struggles with it is looking for a treatment that works! While milder cases of acne can often be controlled with over-the-counter medications, some patients require the assistance of a trusted medical professional to eradicate acne from their skin and achieve clear skin. At RewindMD of Solana Beach, California, Dr. Scott Gillin and his team can assist in providing acne skin care services for active acne and acne scarring.

What causes acne?

There are a lot of discrepancies and myths about the cause of acne. While many people think that eating oily, greasy foods and chocolate are the cause of acne, it’s actually more complicated than that. Studies have shown that acne is mainly caused by a number of different factors, such as hormones, genetics, and bacteria. Hormonal changes that happen during puberty can cause an increase in natural oil production, which tends to clog pores and lead to acne. Genetics also plays a role, as some individuals are more prone to developing acne than others. Certain strains of bacteria found on the skin can contribute to forming pimples and pustules. Getting an evaluation from a professional is the first step to clear acne and acne scarring.

How do I cure acne?

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all “cure” for acne. However, with the help of a medical professional and skin care specialist at RewindMD, you can receive a personalized treatment plan that works for your specific skin type and acne severity. This may include topical medications, oral medications, changes in diet and lifestyle habits, or procedures such as traditional chemical peels or laser therapy. Sometimes, a combination of these treatments can help.

Without treating acne, you may be putting yourself at risk for acne scarring. Acne scarring can present as rolling scars or “icepick” scars that are large and deep. In some instances, certain treatments, such as dermal fillers, can be used to raise the scars and even smooth out the skin. These need to be done regularly, however, to maintain the results. Additionally, certain skin resurfacing treatments and exfoliation services, such as microdermabrasion, microneedling, chemical peels, and laser treatment, can reduce the appearance of problematic acne marks.

At RewindMD, we use laser and IPL treatment to treat active acne and the scars left behind.
