Don’t Live With Adult Acne. Find Out Which Treatment Option is Best For You

In a year of masks, many people are looking for Halloween costumes that include a face covering. But if you live with adult acne, you might feel like wearing a mask for reasons other than safety or getting in the spooky spirit.

Acne, when you’re a teen, is one thing. Sure, it’s embarrassing. But many of your peers are in the same boat. 

As an adult, though, acne can make you feel extra alone and awkward. Because just 15% of women live with adult acne, you might feel like an outcast when dealing with breakouts as an adult. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

At Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, offers dedicated acne treatment for adults with blemish-prone skin. She can pull from a broad range of highly effective treatments to help you get the clear skin you’ve always wanted. 

Let’s take a look at what you can expect when you come to Hanami Medspa for help with acneic skin.

Finding the right acne treatment for you

If you’ve talked to other skin specialists — like a dermatologist — about your acne, you might be frustrated. All too often, these professionals recommend the same treatments over and over again. 

But Dr. Phuah knows that each person’s skin is unique. So she starts the treatment process with a one-hour consultation with you. During this time, you talk about your current skincare regimen, your general wellness, your lifestyle choices, and other things that affect your skin.

This way, Dr. Phuah can customize an acne treatment program just for you. Her goal isn’t just to get rid of blemishes, but to give you healthy, radiant skin you’ll be proud to show off. 

Your acne treatment options

At Hanami Medspa, Dr. Phuah offers a broad range of treatments to help you get your best skin, including:

Medications and topical products

With these pharmaceutical products, Dr. Phuah can help you target acne at its root. She personalizes her recommendations based on what your skin needs right now. 

You’ll leave our office with a customized skincare routine designed to support your skin health while fighting acne. 

Acne facials and extractions

At Hanami Medspa, Dr. Phuah can directly treat your acne. With acne facials that incorporate extractions, she can manually remove debris from under your skin, while applying topical treatments to help prevent future breakouts. 

Light therapy and radiofrequency treatment

Dr. Phuah uses innovative treatments to help you get clear skin. At our office, she offers blue and red light therapy, which helps to reduce the bacteria that causes acne. 

Additionally, she can combine these blue and red light treatments with radiofrequency treatment for a Venus Versa™ treatment. This option also addresses the bacteria on your skin while simultaneously reducing inflammation and promoting healing. 

Generally, you’ll need a series of light-based treatments (usually about six) to see the best results. 

Chemical peels

Your clearest, healthiest skin is waiting just below the surface. With a chemical peel, Dr. Phuah has a way to clear away the outer layer of damaged, breakout-prone skin. Plus, a chemical peel can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
