Acne Treatments to Resolve Breakouts and Smooth Scars

When pores become clogged with dead skin cells, dirt, and oils, the result is a small infection that creates a pimple. While some of us have only the occasional pimple, others combat them more frequently. Though acne is most common during the teen years, it can also affect adults. It can be irritating, painful, and embarrassing to have acne, and blemishes can even leave you with visible scars.

Our skin care specialists offer effective acne treatments in Farmington and Hartford, CT. For some, the consistent use of skin care products formulated to combat and prevent acne will clear their skin. Others can benefit from one of our chemical peels which can treat a current outbreak and help to clear blocked pores. If you have scars from acne, we can also reduce these and leave you with clear, smooth skin. A consultation with one of our facial plastic surgeons, Drs. Seeley and Karter, can help determine the best course of treatment for you.

Eyelash Enhancement

It is not uncommon for your eyelashes to thin as you age, and many people crave thicker, fuller eyelashes. While mascara and false lashes can help, there is a prescription topical treatment that can cause you to grow more and longer lashes, without the hassle of a daily makeup routine. Latisse® is an easy-to-use treatment that you apply once per day. After a few short months, your eyelashes will be noticeably longer and fuller. We are happy to offer our patients this revolutionary eyelash treatment in our office.

Eye Rejuvenation – Non-Surgical Treatment to Brighten and Firm Skin

Your eyes are the first thing that most people see when they look at you. But your eyes can look tired and weary from the effects of aging. This is most often caused by a gradual loosening of skin around the eyes that naturally occurs as we get older. Obagi ELASTiderm® was been developed to create a visible and youthful lift to the delicate skin around the eyes. This serum is the best on the market, and it is made up of an combination of active ingredients that work in synergy to create beautiful results.

Obagi ELASTiderm®’s bi-mineral complex replenishes elasticity and supports collagen production for smoother, firmer skin; it also contains malonic acid, which stimulates the production of new skin cells for overall renewal. The latest formulation of ELASTiderm®’s formula contains caffeine, which reduces under-eye puffiness. These ingredients, applied with a smoothing rollerball, maximize delivery of the serum and reduce puffiness. This Obagi ELASTiderm® Eye Complete Complex™ will give you stunning results.

Professional Skin for Skin Protection

The sun takes its toll on our skin through ultraviolet radiation (UV); sun damage is the primary cause of discolorations in the skin that occur as we age. But you don’t have to live with sun damaged skin. A good skin care routine that includes sun protection will help prevent UV damage. In fact, protecting your skin from sun damage is the single most important thing you can do to slow down the signs of aging and prevent skin cancer.

Because skin protection is so critical, we offer our patients the best topical sun screen available. Obagi Nu-Derm® Sun Shield SPF 50 is a sunscreen that absorbs UVB and blocks UVA radiation using zinc oxide (10.5%) and octinoxate (7.5%). Best of all, it is non-whitening and has a matte finish for a clean look. Obagi Nu-Derm® Sun Shield is fragrance-free and PABA-free, so it is appropriate for all skin types.
