We believe that every person deserves to have a complexion that makes them feel confident. With the advances in acne treatments and laser technology, you truly can have clear, smooth skin and your acne can be effectively managed.
Our medically trained team approaches your acne treatment process as a partnership with you. We begin by carefully devising an achievable acne treatment plan, based on your:
- type of acne
- skin condition
- health insurance coverage, as we always make a concerted effort to stay within your coverage range and personal budget.
Just as you are unique, your acne condition is unique to you as well. This is why it is important to have your acne assessed by a dermatologist, who can accurately diagnose your condition in order to effectively treat it.
As experts in the treatment of ethnic skin, we are painfully aware that some skin conditions on darker skin tones can be falsely diagnosed as acne and given the wrong treatment plan.
Acne is largely considered to be linked to your genetics, but can be exacerbated by hormonal changes, stress, inflammation and other factors. The most common forms of acne are: hormonal acne, cystic acne, whiteheads and blackheads. Hormonal acne generally follows a pattern corresponding to your hormonal cycles. Cystic acne is the result of bacterial infections in the skin pores and is commonly linked to oily skin types. Whiteheads and blackheads are extremely common and can occur almost anywhere on the face or body. Both whiteheads and blackheads occur due to clogged pores.
Whatever form of acne you are experiencing, the Kwan Dermatology team is here to help you. We are proud of the results we have achieved for our acne patients, through treatment options such as: prescription oral and topical medications, as well as laser and light therapies. But beyond the clear, smooth complexion we help our patients achieve, our greatest reward is in providing the emotional support you deserve to have throughout our acne healing partnership together
There are no words to express the joy we feel when we witness our patient confidence grow, as their acne heals. It is such an honor for us to see the smile on our patients face when we have healed their original acne condition and then hold up the handheld mirror to discuss an ongoing acne management program.
