This New Jersey woman is in her 40’s and suffering from hormonal acne. You can see she’s quite oily on her chin the parts of her cheek and nose closest to her mouth – this is a very typical pattern for hormonal acne in females.
With patients who are suffering from hormonal acne, of course, you need to manage that holistically, and that’s part of the work we do with patients. Which means that our doctors ask about other symptoms, review bloodwork, and look at what previous acne treatments have failed you, so that you leave the consultation with a treatment plan that’s not going to just stop the breakouts now, but keep your skin healthy long-term.
But what can be frustrating about a holistic approach to acne is just how much trial and error there is, and how long the results take to achieve. That’s why we love the Sebacia treatment, because it helps by cutting oil production quickly, and that means quick results, which are then maintained with those holistic changes (which might be diet, it might be stress management, or there could be an underlying health issue, etc.)
She is shown here 2 weeks after starting treatment with us, after 2 sessions of Sebacia, and just before she did her 3rd and final treatment in that series.
