April is National Rosacea Month!
IF your skin is chronically red and you are asking yourself, “How do I treat my red skin?” you may
There are a few types of rosacea, and the best place to start is with your dermatologist. A dermatologist can diagnose and treat rosacea, and your insurance may pay for this.
If you are not getting results with your dermatologist, you may need additional help. We can treat you with Photofacials, and specialized peels and products for redness.
Photofacials for redness shut down the superficial tiny blood vessels and you will need 3-5 of these treatments.
Rosacea Chemical peels target blood vessels’ inflammatory process and reduce redness.
Avene products are used at home and contain extracts that also tell the skin NOT to form new blood vessels, and calms the blood vessels already visible.
Larger blood vessels on the face are treated with a 1064 laser. These treatments are admistered by Dr. Keefe.

How can I get rid of Acne scars?
Many patients ask this question, and while it is impossible to completely rid the skin of acne scarring, it can be improved!
In the past, “Resurfacing” meaning removing a portion of the skin surface was the the treatment of choice for acne scarring. Unfortunately, the results were not always great, but the complications could be.
Now, we have a new treatment called Dermapen. This advanced form of microneedling allows thousands of tiny holes to be needled into the skin surface. The depth of penetration is actually DEEPER than a laser treatment!
These tiny holes stimulate collagen formation that helps skin to appear smoother and feel firmer. The amazing thing about Dermapen treatments is that the downtime is minimal! For rejuvenation you may have no downtime or some redness for a day or two!
For acne scarring and fine lines, we can treat your more agressively, and you may be a bit red for a few days. You will not have swelling, oozing or pain associated with laser treatment for acne scarring.
Dermapen treatments can give you an immediate glow just a few days after your treatment. Most patients notice a nice improvement right away!
For acne scarring, about 6 Dermapne microneedling treatments are neede. Usually these treatments are about 6-8 weeks apart.
