Should you get acne treatments?
Acne affects 85% of teenagers in the city of Edmond, OK. Treating acne early is recommended to minimize scarring that can occur if left untreated. Permanent scarring is difficult to treat, and it can have a huge impact on a person’s self-esteem and positive self-image.
Dr. Timothy Jones understands the social, psychological, as well as emotional impairment that a person can experience through acne. After consultation, you are prescribed a treatment plan suited to each person’s condition and severity.
What are the treatments for Permanent Acne Scars?
Acne produces infection. The infection destroys the thin layer of fat under the skin and makes is scar. This scar and the absence of fat under skin produces the ‘ice pick’ scars commonly seen from acne. A combination of techniques are needed to get the best improvement. The tethering scar needs to be released, a thin layer of fat placed, and the surface of the skin resurfaced.
Together with his team, Dr. Jones maps out a personalized acne treatment plan for his patients taking into consideration the patient’s skin type, gender, age, and acne severity.
