For any red-blooded adult who has experienced acne, there may seem to be some truth to the theory that season change could be the cause. Some may say that the summer sunshine clears acne, but the excess oil could be the cause of acne. Heading into the winter months, the application of more moisturizer may be the culprit, but the harsh “Great Northeast” winters in Philadelphia and New Jersey may also be to blame. According to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, “It is unknown if sun exposure plays a role in clearing acne. However, we do begin to see an increase in breakouts as the colder months approach.” Whatever and however acne may exist for patients, and whether it’s winter or summer, there are solutions for acne treatment at the Hughes Center Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa.

The cosmetic surgeons at The Hughes Center realize grown adults may have acne breakouts and might feel just as awkward as a teenager does when it happens This is why micropeels, chemical peels and skin care products may be chosen to help the process of improving skin that’s been attacked by acne. These acne treatments may help by doing things such as removing dead skin layers, opening the pores, or penetrating layers of skin to clear up the breakouts.

Here are some of the acne treatments that help clear or fade breakouts:

Isolaz – A therapy that uses the combination of vacuum and laser to loosen and extract dirt, blackheads and excess oil

ALA (Aminolevulinic) – An acid peel with light stimulation.
