Acne vulgaris, a skin condition commonly known as acne, is characterized by the occurrence of pimples on the face, back, or chest. There are two basic types of acne:
The occurrence of acne is often attributed to hormones and oil production, as well as genetic factors and pore-blocking debris. Stress may also trigger acne breakouts.
A variety of acne treatment options exist because there is no single acne treatment that works best for every patient. Some of these options include physician-grade products, peels, dermaplaning and microdermabrasion.
Additional acne treatments used at Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute utilize blue-wavelength light, offered in two different treatments, the Blu U Light and Revitalight. These painless procedures use blue wavelengths of light to kill the bacteria that causes acne. Typically, a series of treatments is needed for the best results.
