ACNE Treatment New jersey
Patients experiencing frustrating and embarrassing acne breakouts can benefit from effective acne treatments in New Jersey. There are a number of treatment options available, and because not all acne is the same, the treatment method will be chosen based on each patient’s unique case.

Our Acne Treatment Options

Topical and oral prescription medications: There are several topical and oral medications available to treat acne. They vary in strength depending on the severity of the acne outbreak.

Chemical peels: Chemical peels are acid-based solutions that encourage sloughing of dead and damaged skin cells, revealing fresh new skin that is free of imperfections.

HydraFacial: The HydraFacial is a gentle and relaxing state-of-the-art treatment method for numerous skin issues, including clogged pores and acne. It uses serums and a vortex effect to exfoliate, extract, hydrate, and rejuvenate.

Manual extractions: Manual extractions are performed by a dermatologist and involve the use of a sterile tool to extract the contents of a pimple. This technique is typically used for blackheads or whiteheads and is not usually used for inflamed pimples.

Cortisone shots for cystic acne: Large acne lesions can be directly injected with cortisone to quickly and effectively reduce inflammation. Cortisone is a chemical that is naturally produced by the adrenal glands as a stress response.

IPL Forever Clear: This IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment uses three colors of light to treat acne on multiple levels. The blue IPL light destroys acne-causing bacteria. The yellow IPL light resolves redness and inflammation in the skin. Infrared light encourages skin healing.

Cutera Excel V+: This laser treatment is incredibly versatile and can treat a wide variety of skin issues. It delivers short high-intensity energy pulses to the skin, eliminating the bacteria that causes acne.

The Cost of Acne Treatment

The price of your acne treatment will depend on the treatment option you choose. The calculation of acne treatment in Rutherford cost is also based on the number of treatment sessions required (if an in-office procedure is chosen).

Who doesn’t adore beautifully enhanced lips? Let us unveil the enchanting process behind achieving those captivating pouts:

1️⃣Cleansing and numbing: The lips and surrounding areas are thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils that could increase the risk of infection. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the lips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

2️⃣Poking: Using a fine needle or cannula, the injector creates entry points or small punctures along the lip border or within the lips themselves.

3️⃣Injecting: The filler is carefully injected into the marked areas or along the lip borders, following the predetermined plan to achieve the desired shape and volume.

4️⃣Massaging: After injection, the injector may gently massage the lips to distribute the filler evenly and reduce the risk of lumps or irregularities.

5️⃣Assessment: Once the filler has been injected, the injector evaluates the results and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and natural-looking enhancement.

6️⃣Aftercare: Patients are advised on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, refraining from touching or pressing on the lips, and using cold compresses to reduce swelling.
