Acne treatments are everywhere. At Gilbert Perfect Skin our acne treatments are based on science, which means Dr. Keefe actually considers CLINICAL studies for each treatment.
Our Acne treatment package is a complete system to fight the CAUSES of acne. Acne is caused by bacteria that for many reasons, find a home in your skin.
P. acnes is the major player here. It loves gooey sebum trapped in your follicles. So how do you stop the production of gooey sebum?
Decreasing sebum production requires a small army: Retinoid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic acid, glycolic acid and sometimes sulfur and resorcinol.
Peels for acne treatment are designed to remove some of the dead skin cells and get down into the follicles for direct assault.
Acne pimples are also inflamed and appear red. The specific skin care products we use are formulated to “calm” this inflammation. This can make your acne pimples appear less angry!
Our acne treatments also target the discoloration that pimples can leave behind. Discoloration is the brown pigment that your melanocytes produce in protest of all that inflammation.
Now you see that treating acne successfully requires a well-designed science-based regimen. If you choose not treat your pimples this way, next year you will still have acne, and cringe every time the camera comes out!!
