Do You Need Acne Surgery?

acne-surgery-ny-chemical-peelsFirst of all, what is acne surgery?  It sounds like a scary thing that requires anesthesia and a hospital stay!  The truth is, acne surgery is a simple procedure, which can make a big improvement in the treatment of your acne.  Patients with comedonal acne, meaning blackheads and whiteheads, tend to see a vast improvement after acne surgery. Acne surgery is the manual removal of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) from the skin.  A dermatologist, physician assistant, or certified esthetician will use sterile tools to unclog the pores and remove the excess sebum that has built up in the pore.  This does not hurt and takes anywhere from five to thirty minutes, depending on the extent of your acne.  Sometimes, we will recommend steaming your skin first, to open up the pores and facilitate the acne surgery.  Additionally, we will often perform a chemical peel immediately following acne surgery.  This allows the further clearing of clogged pores and delivering of anti-acne medication to the skin. After acne surgery, your skin may temporarily be mildly red for a short period of time.  You may apply sunscreen or makeup following your visit; there is no need to avoid your regular activities following acne surgery.  For patients who have a chemical peel combined with acne surgery, your dermatologist will review the instructions on how to best care for your skin after the procedure.
