Acne

Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology offers a number of effective acne-fighting treatments to help manage your skin and improve your complexion.

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that occurs when pores get blocked with oil, bacteria or dead skin. This causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or deep lumps to form. Acne typically appears on the face, back, shoulders, neck, chest and upper arms. Rather than try to hide it, our acne-fighting treatments can help you manage and minimize your blemishes. This can be especially important for teens.

Oil glands in the skin are affected by hormones, which is why acne is so common during puberty. But acne is not only a young person’s skin issue. Many adults suffer from acne into their adulthood or carry permanent scars from their youth.

Regardless of your age, our experts will recommend the right acne-fighting treatments for your complexion and skin type.

These acne-fighting treatment options are available at Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology:

Laser Genesis™

Laser Genesis™ skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced acne-fighting treatment that penetrates below the surface of the skin where the acne problem starts. Laser Genesis™ gently heats the upper dermis directly under the skin, shrinking the pores and stimulating growth of new skin cells and collagen. The result is smooth, vibrant and healthy looking skin.

Glycolic Peels

A glycolic peel rapidly exfoliates the top layer of skin, removing dead skin and excess oil that can clog the pores. This acne-fighting treatment is quick and easy. It can improve mild to moderate cases of acne, particularly when done in a series. A glycolic peel is an excellent choice if you are looking for a renewed, refreshed complexion with no downtime.

Excel V™ Plus Laser

This is the gold standard acne-fighting laser treatment. The Excel V™ Plus Laser technology delivers high-power pulses of light energy to target deep and hard to reach areas. TheExcel V™ Plus Laser has a dual wavelength that heats the upper dermis while simultaneously cooling the skin. This advanced technology makes it the most comfortable laser treatment on the market. It is ideal for treating acne blemishes, discoloration and scars.
