Teenagers aren’t the only ones who suffer from acne. In fact, the majority of acne patients that Dr. Chiu sees are adults in their 20’s and 30’s. Unfortunately, there is no age limit for this embarrassing and potentially disfiguring disease! The Bellevue Laser & Cosmetic Center takes pride in the successful treatment of acne. We specialize in blending traditional medicine, adjunctive therapies, and technology to achieve optimal results.
While mild cases of acne may respond to over-the-counter treatments, more severe cases may require prescription medications. At The Bellevue Laser & Cosmetic Center, we take all acne cases seriously. Dr. Chiu is an expert at treating acne and is dedicated to preventing acne scar formation. She may recommend a combination of topical medications and oral medications including oral antibiotics, birth control pills, spironolactone, or in extreme cases, Accutane.
At The Bellevue Laser & Cosmetic Center, we also offer a variety of adjunctive therapies and laser treatments to treat acne. We specialize in combining treatments to custom tailor a plan that is just right for you. Depending on the type of acne that you have, Dr. Chiu may recommend acne extraction facials, chemical peels such as the salicylic acid peel, Smoothbeam laser, IPL , or photodynamic therapy.
It’s important to know that acne cannot be cured overnight. It may take many weeks before it starts to respond to treatment. Be patient. We will help you take control of your acne and discover a beautiful complexion!
