• Treatment Options for Cystic Acne

    Cystic acne is different from other types of acne. It affects deep layers of skin and can cause lingering scars. Typically, cystic acne doesn’t respond to over-the-counter treatments, but a dermatologist can provide treatments that help to control breakouts and reduce the risk of scarring.  

    When you see a dermatologist for acne treatment, the first step will be diagnosing the kind of acne that is affecting your skin the most. Then, your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan that may involve both oral medications and topical treatments. Special cleansers and moisturizers may also help. Many patients need to use these treatments for an extended period of time to achieve the best results. If you develop scarring, your dermatologist can recommend treatments like Bellafill and microneedling to improve your skin’s appearance. 

    You don’t have to suffer from cystic acne breakouts and the lingering impacts of scarring. Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology offers a comprehensive range of acne treatments in Salt Lake City to help you regain a clear complexion. To schedule an appointment, call (801) 266-8841. 

  • Could Bellafill Reverse Your Acne Scarring?

    One of the most frustrating parts of dealing with acne is the scarring it can leave behind long after the breakouts are gone. Fortunately, a new treatment offered by dermatologists can effectively reverse the appearance of scarring and help you achieve smoother skin. Bellafill is effective at treating atrophic, distensible acne scarring on the cheeks and delivers results as soon as the first treatment.

    Bellafill is a dermal filler that works to decrease the appearance of scarring by plumping the skin underneath where scars appear. Adding volume to the skin raises it the same level as the surrounding skin, decreasing the appearance of pits and depressions on the skin surface. Your dermatologist can perform Bellafill injections in the office, and there is no downtime after treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities right away.

    To see if Bellafill could be right for you, make an appointment at Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology. Our dermatologists treat a comprehensive range of cosmetic and medical skin issues and can help you find the right treatment for your needs.

  • A Look at the Causes of Acne Scarring

    Acne is among the most common dermatology-related complaints. But as troublesome as pimples are, the scars that can result are even more frustrating. Watch this video to learn how acne scars form. The dermatology expert featured here explains that scarring is the result of inflammatory processes in the dermis, which is the second layer of skin.

    When a pus-filled cyst or pimple ruptures, the pus will then leak into the dermal tissue. This can damage healthy tissue, and the body’s attempt to heal the damage results in scar tissue. Continue watching this video to find out how the different types of scar tissue are formed.
