Anti-acne regimen

Anti-acne regimen

Acne treatment starts with a dermatologic consultation. Each patient is assessed according to:

  • skin type and color
  • severity, duration, and stage of acne
  • previous and present medications
  • lifestyle
  • other medical problems
  • other pertinent history

The doctor then plans for the course of treatment which may include:

  • topical medications and skin care products
  • oral medications
  • procedures like acne surgery, lasers, etc.

Acne management almost always entails a series of treatments and necessitates a sense of commitment from the patient to comply with the proper application and intake of the medicines prescribed and to return on scheduled follow-ups.

 

Lip TightLase (Fotona Er:YAG)

Lip TightLase (Fotona Er:YAG)

Lip Tightlase is a unique dual-wavelength, non-invasive Fotona laser treatment for tightening the lips and area surrounding it. The exclusive delivery modes are used in concert for hyperthermic adipocyte destruction and collagen remodeling with exceptional results.

Does it hurt?

The laser procedure is very tolerable but patients may still require the use topical anesthesia.

How often do I need to do the treatment?

On the average, a series of three to six consecutive sessions one month apart deliver optimal results. Results are cumulative. Although one may notice improvement after one session, a series of three monthly sessions would be good to start with, to see more significant to marked results. Depending on what has been achieved, an evaluation by our physician may be done, if more sessions are needed.
