5 Ways to Get Your Acne Under Control

Nearly everyone develops acne at some point, usually in adolescence, but it’s also common in adults and even young children. Over-the-counter treatments abound for this common skin disorder, but many offer only limited relief.

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gordon Sasaki leads the team at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center in Pasadena, California. One of our goals is to help you achieve clear, radiant skin with medical therapies customized to fit your skincare needs.

Whether you’re struggling with acne, rosacea, or the signs of aging, we can help. Here’s our team’s take on five ways to get your acne under control with a blend of home care and professional-grade techniques that work.

1. Take advantage of personalized skincare

Personalized skincare solutions are tailored to your unique skin type and concerns. Based on a thorough analysis, our Sasaki skincare experts recommend products and treatments that address your specific acne triggers.

From cleansers and toners to specialized serums, a personalized skincare regimen can make a significant difference in managing acne effectively.

2. Advanced medical-grade treatments

We offer a range of advanced facial treatments here at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center, each designed to target acne at its source. Procedures like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser therapy can help reduce acne scars, unclog pores, and promote overall skin renewal.

Our trained professionals perform these treatments under the direct supervision of Dr. Sasaki. During your initial evaluation, we identify the nuances of different skin types, from combination to dry to sensitive, ensuring a safe and effective experience.

3. Professional techniques

One of the primary causes of persistent acne is the accumulation of excess oil and debris in the pores. Your Sasaki team is skilled in professional extraction techniques, safely removing blackheads and whiteheads without causing damage to your skin.

This process helps improve cell turnover, preventing future breakouts and promoting a clearer complexion with professional-grade techniques adjusted to fit your skincare needs.

4. Nutritional guidance for healthy skin

Our holistic approach to skincare often involves addressing internal factors that contribute to acne. Your customized treatment strategy may include nutritional guidance to support healthy skin from the inside out.

By recommending a balanced diet and supplements rich in skin-friendly nutrients, we empower you to make lifestyle changes that positively impact your skin’s health and appearance.

5. Regular follow-ups and maintenance

Achieving clear skin is an ongoing process that requires consistent effort and maintenance. Regular follow-up appointments at Sasaki are designed to track your progress and make necessary adjustments to your skincare routine.

These check-ins ensure that your skin responds well to the treatments and allow any modifications to be made as needed. We’ve also considered your comfort by designing a spa-like setting designed to soothe and re-energize as you undergo acne treatments.

With personalized care, advanced treatments, and a holistic approach to acne treatment, our team offers comprehensive, expert solutions to tackle acne and promote long-lasting skin health.
