Acne Treatments Enjoy Pure, Unblemished Skin

Acne is something you likely assumed you’d be done with forever, once you’ve left your teens and early twenties. For many of us, acne does clear up, at least temporarily. It’s not uncommon, however, for adult-onset acne to become a concern, causing cosmetic issues and even sometimes physical discomfort. At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, we’re committed to offering you a series of treatments that will reduce the appearance of acne and considerably improve the overall skin tone and texture. 

Our experienced team of aestheticians, working under the guidance of board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin, are experts at providing comfortable and effective acne treatments that will help clear your complexion. Our offices are located in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Washington DC. When you’re ready to learn more about what we can do for you, reach out and set up your consultation with a member of our team.

Offering You Customized Skincare

No two individuals are alike, and neither is their skin. Most of us are familiar with acne—the result of oil-clogged pores that manifests in pimples, cysts, blackheads, and whiteheads. While some people may resort to oral antibiotics that treat the skin systemically, those solutions can have unwanted side effects like photosensitivity, allergic reactions, and adverse drug reactions. 

While mild acne can often be managed by simple over-the-counter creams and astringents, the effects only go so far. Alternate treatments such as chemical peels, laser treatments, and topical treatments can all have a profound effect on acne, reducing the appearance of blemishes and improving the overall health of the skin.

Here at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, we’ll offer you a customized treatment plan that addresses your issues on an individual level. We’re proud to provide our patients with a variety of treatment modalities, and when you visit us for your initial consultation, we’ll help you decide on the option that is right for you and your goals.

Topical Treatments

For milder cases, a range of specialty topical treatments are available and can be recommended by your aesthetician. The specific treatment will depend on your skin type and condition, as well as the extent of the acne to be treated. In some cases, a topical cream might be recommended in conjunction with another form of treatment, such as laser therapy or a chemical peel.
