Cameron Diaz Struggled with Acne, But You Don’t Have To! Acne Treatment in Odessa, TX

Treating acne has come a long way since the days of using drug store cleanser and burning your skin with alcohol to try and dry out breakouts. We believe that no one should suffer the scars and embarrassment of acne, as Cameron Diaz described in a recent Seventeen Magazine article:

“You might think my life is always totally glam, but I used to have horrible acne — deep, boiling pimples — the kind that hurts so badly. I didn’t want to leave my house. My friends said they didn’t notice, but I’d say, “It’s the only thing anyone can see!” No amount of concealer and foundation could take away the texture of my skin, the embarrassment I felt, or the pain of those raging pimples. I was miserable.”

Here at MCH Laser & Wellness Center, we understand the negative impact acne can have on your life. That is why we are so happy to announce that you no longer need to hide in your house and wait for acne to go away.

Got Acne? Laser Acne Treatment in Odessa, TX

Acne is a skin condition that can affect anyone at any age. Typically we see acne erupt in teens because hormones are shifting, causing the sebaceous glands to enlarge, thus producing more oil. The same is true for women who experience hormonal changes monthly and during menopause. In addition, stress, lifestyle, diet and poor skin care can play a role in acne. Acne can seem problematic to treat, especially if prescribed creams, lotions and pills are not doing the trick. Sometimes, people cannot tolerate the side effects of prescribed medications, leaving them to suffer with teen or adult acne.

Have you heard about laser acne treatments? We have two laser options that have remarkable results, the IPL-Photodynamic Therapy and BBL- broad based light or “blue light”. Both of these laser treatments are effective management tools for acne and both are non-invasive and well tolerated procedures with little to no downtime.  IPL is used with a medication to shrink the sebaceous glands and BBL targets the P.Acnes that cause the redness and inflammation associated with acne. Depending on the grade of acne that needs treating, our medical team can determine which treatments are best suited for your skin.  These treatments can also be used with active acne on the back and chest.

These laser treatments will not address acne scarring, those are best treated with fractional laser resurfacing.  Do not let acne rule your life, skincare is our expertise at MCH Laser and Wellness Center, and it is our personal goal to have you looking and feeling your best. Put your best face forward for this New Year with Laser Acne treatmentsat MCH Laser.

Please book a complimentary consultation with us. You will be glad you did.  Call (432)640-6470 or email info@mchlaserandwellness.com.

A-List Celebrities with Acne: Acne Treatment in Odessa, TX

Celebrities are just like us – many of them suffer from problem skin, too. A recent article that appeared in Us Weekly chronicled the complexion woes of many public figures such as Katy Perry, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan. While these girls always look gorgeous on the red carpet, each has struggled with acne in the past.

Katy Perry admitted in the July issue of Vogue Magazine that she used to be “very insecure” about her skin. Alicia Keys also echoed this sentiment, saying that if she isn’t careful to remove all of her makeup at night as well as hydrate every 2 hours, she is acne prone, too. Party girl Lindsay also recently admitted the toll that late nights have taken on her skin in the form of blemishes and pimples.

Our recommendation here at MCH Laser & Wellness Center in Odessa? Laser acne treatment! We use a laser device called intense pulsed light (IPL) to eliminate imperfections non-invasively on the surface of the skin. This photodynamic therapy combines a medication applied to the skin’s surface followed by IPL treatment to shrink the sebaceous glands beneath the skin.

Another option for acne is a type of IPL called Broad Band Light(BBL). This treatment is used directly on the skin to reduce oil gland activity and bacterial counts, both of which improve acne.
