What is Acne?

Acne is a skin disease that primarily targets teens, but many adults also develop acne. Acne most commonly affects the face, but it may also appear on the upper arms, back, chest, neck, thighs, and buttocks.  Acne is caused by a combination of accumulated skin oils and dead skin cells, which can clog pores and hair follicles in the skin. Once clogged, bacteria begin to accumulate in the skin pores. These accumulated bacteria may produce whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and other symptoms of acne.

What are the most common symptoms of Acne?

Acne affects every individual differently, and the severity and frequency of breakouts varies between individuals. Some people suffer from significantly more frequent and intense breakouts than others.

Severe blemishes are referred to medically as papules, firm lesions, nodules, and pustules. In some individuals, these blemishes may occur only in localized areas, or they can occur on the face, upper arms, shoulders, neck, chest, back and buttocks.

Is there any way to prevent Acne?

Most acne is not preventable, but daily treatments may effectively control moderate pimples. Both laser and prescription treatments may be effective in controlling acne. It is especially important to cleanse the skin properly and regularly to prevent the clogging of pores and accumulation of bacteria that cause acne. With proper care of your skin, you may effectively reduce the frequency of acne outbreaks.  In some patients, sudden onset of acne may be tied to dietary or environmental changes, cosmetics, or medication. In these cases, if the trigger can be identified and avoided, it may be possible to prevent future acne breakouts by eliminating the trigger. We will be happy to discuss your specific condition, triggers, and treatment options during your initial consultation.

You were there to answer every question and guide me step by step. I really appreciate all of you and Nina you are the best!" Thanks again, friendly J.
"Facial treatments promise great results, but often don’t deliver, especially for sensitive, large pore skin like mine. The CO2 Omnifit procedure is the exception. Joanne, Dr. Keller’s RN, administers the basically painless treatment, which takes about 30 minutes. After a few days of reddened skin, my face is smooth, fresh, and dewy. Even my husband has noticed the appreciable difference!" ...
"From the first day I walked into the Rejuvalase Medical Spa. I noticed the fresh flowers in the waiting room, a friendly smile and greeting upon arrival. Dr Keller took his time and addressed all of my questions and fears of which I had many. It’s nice not to feel rushed or unimportant by having a Dr who’s constantly looking at their watch. I know we have all had at least one of them! I assure you Dr Keller and Joanne Benda the registered nurse is all about their patients.…" ...
