Acne Treatment Kelowna

Symptoms of acne include whiteheads and blackheads, painful red bumps that are called papules or pustules, or in more severe cases, large nodules or cysts that form under the skin and cause discomfort and scarring. Acne is most common in teenagers but can affect people of any age. Breakouts occur most often on the face, but can develop anywhere on the body including back, chest and arms as well.

Acne can cause emotional and social hardships for teenagers and adults alike, affecting their work and school, relationships and extra curricular activities. Whether symptoms are mild or severe, those affected often feel unable to interact with confidence due to their condition, while those with acne on their bodies tend to avoid sports and physical activities that would reveal their condition. Add to this, if left untreated can cause permanent scarring of the skin, and it is easy to see why professional skin care is a must for acne patients.

"Isabel and Praven have truly been amazing guides along my skin care journey. I came to Cerulean in the summer of 2017 after months of trying various specialists to help with my mid-life skin (basically your average awesome combo of acne and wrinkles). I cannot say enough good about Isabel and Praven. They are kind, caring, honest and sincere. Praven is totally a perfectionist, which in this situation is awesome. I would HIGHLY recommend Cerulean to anyone searching to have the best skin possible!"

Acne Treatment Kelowna FAQs

Am I a good candidate for professional acne treatment in Kelowna, BC?

If you have moderate to severe acne, it’s a good idea to seek professional advice about how to treat it. Acne is common among teenagers, but can also present in adults as well, and can affect almost any area of the body. A thorough medical evaluation and treatment plan can help to clear your skin, prevent or minimize scarring and improve confidence and body image.

What causes acne?

Increased oil production and blocked pores that contributes to acne can be a result of hormones or simply heredity. Many people with severe forms of acne have family members who have suffered with the condition as well.

How long will it take to treat my acne?

We know you want to get rid of your acne as soon as possible. That’s why we create a customized treatment plan that is tailor made for each individual patient. The options and timeline depend largely on the type and severity of the skin condition, so there is not one simple answer. That said, we expect to see improvement within the first couple of weeks of treatment. Call us for a consultation to discuss what treatments would be right for you.

I already have scars – is there anything you can do to get rid of them?

There is! Many people feel that they are stuck with acne scars for life, when the truth is, there’s a lot that can be done to diminish them. Chemical peels, laser treatments and dermal fillers can all be excellent treatment options to name a few.

I’m concerned that I will need a chemical peel to treat my acne – are they painful?

With our mild medical grade chemical peels, you’ll feel only a warm sensation as the peel is applied. For deeper medical grade chemical peels used to address more severe acne we apply a numbing cream in advance of your procedure to ensure that you have minimal discomfort throughout your treatment.
