What Is Acne?

Acne on the face can be frustrating and hard to get rid of. Many young teens and adults struggle with acne and assume when they get older it will go away. Acne consists of blemishes, red swollen or irritated skin, blackheads, whiteheads, and even cysts under the skin. At TranscenDental Smiles of Georgia our doctors can help treat acne and minimize inflammation and scarring. We offer multiple acne treatments in Stone Mountain, for our patients, and provide the very best care possible. Our customized acne treatment plans are created to meet each patient’s needs and offer exceptional results. Scheduling a consultation with our team is the first step towards smoother and clearer skin.

What Causes Acne on Our Skin?

Acne can be caused by multiple factors and differ for each person. Many patients have tried over-the-counter solutions with no success and search for better treatments for their acne problems. Our specialists at TranscenDental Smiles of Georgia can help patients manage or clear up their acne without further irritating the skin.

Acne can be caused by::

  • Puberty or hormones
  • Medications
  • Stress
  • Use of tobacco products
  • Genetics

How Does Acne Form on Our Skin?

Skin pores or glands can get clogged by oil or skin cells and cause inflammation or redness on the skin. If there is an overproduction of oil on the skin, bacteria can grow quickly and cause whiteheads to form. If whiteheads are not addressed, they eventually turn into blackheads. At TranscenDental Smiles of Georgia, we provide acne treatment in Stone Mountain, for many different types of acne. Our treatments help to smooth out and diminish scarring caused by acne. Our doctors can provide a customized treatment plan and discuss an at-home skincare program to help keep your skin looking its best after acne treatment at our medi spa.

What Acne Treatments Are Offered at TranscenDental Smiles of Georgia?

Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments

At TranscenDental Smiles of Georgia we can treat acne and target scarring or damage with our laser skin resurfacing treatments. We use both non-ablative and ablative treatments to help target acne scars and make the skin tighter, smooth, and youthful. Our med spa in Stone Mountain, provides laser treatment that is non-invasive but may cause some redness or swelling afterwards. The fractional laser helps to resurface the skin and increases collagen production to promote healing. Patients can begin the process by scheduling a consultation with our team that includes a discussion of their goals, medical history, and detailed skin analysis. Our services go beyond treatment at our medi spa with our custom skincare plans to help you maintain your results at home after laser treatment.

Benefits of Laser Resurfacing Treatment for Acne

  • Reduces acne scarring

  • Reveals smoother skin
  • Boosts collagen growth

Microneedling With PRP or Without PRP

Our microneedling treatment with or without PRP is an effective way to resurface the skin by reaching deeply into the dermal layer. This process stimulates collagen production and helps to firm and tighten skin. Microneedling treatment creates micro-injuries in the skin and is delicate, helping to clear up acne and create glowing skin. If platelet-rich plasma is applied during our microneedling treatment, this is derived from a patient’s own blood sample that we take during the appointment. Platelet-rich plasma helps to increase circulation, reduce bleeding, and helps to create smoother skin. Microneedling requires multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, and our team can help create a customized treatment plan that outlines how many treatments are needed.

Our facials are typically 15-30 minutes long and our team can help create a treatment plan that includes multiple acne facials to achieve long-term results.
