Acne is the most frequent skin condition in the United States. It is characterized by pimples that appear on the face, back and chest. Acne is more than a cosmetic issue for most. Often times, it is painful, and can significantly damage self-image and confidence. If you suffer from acne breakouts, you already realize that over-the-counter products just aren’t strong enough to substantially improve acne. The good news is that state-of-the-art acne treatments & technologies offered at our office can make acne a thing of the past.
The reality is that acne is a medical condition, and typically requires treatment by a doctor to make it go away and avoid permanent scarring. Dr. Silkey offers the most advanced array of state-of-the-art acne treatments including non-invasive light therapy and the latest laser procedures.
Acne is made up of two types of blemishes. the first is whiteheads & blackheads (comedones), which are non-inflammatory and appear more on the face and shoulders. As long as they remain uninfected, they are unlikely to lead to scarring. The second type of acne is red pustules or papules which are inflamed pores that fill with pus. These can lead to scarring. Board certified Kaysville, UT surgeon Dr. Jacqueline Silkey offers innovative & effective treatments for both kinds of acne.
