What Does Our Acne Treatment Look Like?

There are multiple types of acne, so we provide multiple methods of treatment. Furthermore, each patient’s skin is unique, requiring a tailored treatment that takes their individual biology into account.

The types of acne we can treat includes:

  • Blackheads (open clogged pores)
  • Whiteheads (closed clogged pores)
  • Pustules (fluid-filled pockets)
  • Papules (raised lesions that feel tender to the touch)
  • Cysts (deeper lesions that may cause scarring if ruptured)

Your treatment will be built around the type of acne you want to address and its severity. For some patients, a single modality may be enough, while other patients may require a combined approach to see the results they want. Once your type of acne has been identified, we can build a treatment plan around it to deliver optimal results.

We provide acne treatments that include the use of:

  • Topicals (e.g., retinoids, salicylic acid)
  • Laser and light therapy
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical peels
  • Over-the-counter& prescription medication (e.g., antibiotics)

We also provide treatment for scars left behind by acne, reducing visibility and improving skin texture overall. Contact us today to learn more about our options for acne treatment in Tampa and get started with your personal consultation with Dr. Lombardi.

Benefits of Acne Treatment in Tampa

Which Acne Treatment Is Right for Me?

If you continue to struggle with acne, it may be time to seek professional treatment. By visiting a professional dermatologist, you can take out the guesswork in dealing with acne. Instead of choosing treatments based on commercials and advertisements, you can have a double board-certified expert build a personalized treatment for your unique needs.

During your consultation, Dr. Lombadi can discuss your situation and conduct exams to see what will bring you the best results. Factors such as age, skin health, overall health, and more are all considered when building your acne treatment plan. Acne can be stubborn, but the treatments offered at Synergy MD are designed to deal with even the most severe cases and outbreaks.

Is There a Recovery Period?

For some acne treatments, there is absolutely no recovery period. This applies to medications or prescription topicals. For laser therapy and chemical peels, there is a brief period after a session when your skin may be sensitive or red. However, this doesn’t interfere with going about your daily routine in many cases, and your body quickly heals.

For microdermabrasion, there is virtually no downtime. Since the treatment uses a gentler method of exfoliation than laser therapy or chemical peels, you can get back to life right away.

When Can I See Results?

Our goal is to match you with treatments that provide you with the results you want as soon as possible. Each patient will see results at different times depending on their treatment plan and the severity of their acne. However, you should begin seeing improvements after a single procedure and within days of your treatment. For your final results to appear, it will be vital to follow through on your treatment plan. Most patients require more than one treatment session to see full results.

To maintain clear skin, you may also benefit from a professionally-designed skincare routine. Additionally, patients may require touchup treatments over time to keep more severe cases of acne under control. But with a dermatologist on your side, you can finally stand a chance in the fight against your acne.
