    Active acne & acne scar treatments that actually work.

    Why see a Plastic Surgeon for the treatment of acne and acne scars?

    At the Columbus institute of Plastic Surgery we certainly believe that a Medical Dermatologist is a great place to start when managing your active acne or complex cystic acne.  Despite all of the advances in acne care to date, many patients are frustrated about not getting the results that they desire…clear smooth skin without blemishes.  The comprehensive, multi-pronged management of active acne and acne scars is the only way for you to get closer to this goal!  As Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons we have highly specialized training in medical grade skin care, all modes of laser and light technology, and surgical techniques that can be brought to bear on this vexing problem.  Together with our team of aestheticians, nurses and doctors, we are a one-stop-shop for dealing with tough cases!

    How can I get better results with my acne and acne scar treatments?

    Acne and acne scars are a chronic condition that can be quite debilitating to patients.  The negative psychological impact of poorly controlled acne or acne scars is often underestimated.  In order for you to get clear, blemish free skin with a smoother looking appearance, a multi-pronged approach is needed for success.    Successful control of active acne requires that we used all the available tools at our disposal to get all four causes of acne under control, consistently.  If you neglect one of the causes or slack off, your acne will come back.  We usually start out with the simplest, most cost effective solutions and ramp things up depending on your response to treatment.  If you have breakouts and a big event coming up, we can take a more aggressive approach to getting things under control.  We often combine multiple treatments at the same time to get faster and better results than what you have experienced before.
