Acne

HOW WE TREAT ACNE

Acne doesn’t discriminate. No matter your age, gender or race, acne can affect anyone at any time. All acne treatments at Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center are for people who want to avoid going on Accutane due to its serious side effects. One of the advanced modalities we use for treating acne is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) or Blu-U Light. PDT has been very effective in treating resistant and cystic acne where other treatments have failed.

Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center has been treating people with acne since 2005 and our knowledge, skills, and experience—combined with consistently good results—make us a clinic you can trust.

“I came to Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center seeking treatment for my severe acne and acne scarring, they gave me special shampoo, supplements, and facial products. Within 3 months of beginning treatment, my skin had become the clearest it had ever been, after 6 months I had no breakouts whatsoever and almost all of my previous scarring had been resolved.

To this day I continue to use the products that they give me and my skin has stayed clear and healthy and I get compliments all the time and I don’t even have to wear foundation/concealer anymore. Throughout my whole experience the staff have been extremely helpful and friendly and have been an excellent resource giving me advice and free consultations whenever I need it.” *

Before & After Acne Treatments

“We came to Mill Creek Skin and Laser Center looking for a miracle. Our son Taylor is an amazing young man. When he reached the teen years he began having acne problems. We started out with the usual over-the-counter medications … none of them worked. We next took Taylor to the doctor where he seemed to improve for a little while.

When we met with Dr. Lin and Julie, we were encouraged… When they tell you that it will look worse before it looks better, believe them. It is a process that has many steps. Now we come in for monthly maintenance. We barely even need that.

The best part for us is seeing his confidence return. He now holds his head high and smiles at everyone he sees. He is outgoing again. We are forever grateful for what you have done for us.” *

Laser Treatment | Acne Scars

If you have scars resulting from your acne, we can help with those too. Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center has quickly moved to the forefront as the first choice of laser technology to treat acne scars. We have a variety of lasers to choose from based on your particular needs that can be used singularly or combined for the best outcome. You can expect your scars to become smoother and less noticeable through a series of treatments, which require minimal or no downtime.

When your hair follicles become plugged with oil, bacteria and dead skin cells cause pimples or zits to form. Seems simple enough. But there is nothing simple about acne. In fact, it is a very complex problem. Acne has varying degrees of severity, which can impact self-esteem and can cause scarring if not treated early on.

  • Puberty
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Hormones

Sebacia

Acne can be frustrating and affect your self-esteem. The sebaceous glands create oil to lubricate and protect your skin, but excess oil can clog pores. Acne occurs when bacteria get trapped in the blocked pores. While there are many methods available to kill bacteria and clear pores, Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center is always looking for better and more effective treatments. We are the first and only practice to offer this revolutionary new acne treatment. Sebacia clears skin from the inside out.

“Did a great job helping with my acne problem using a combination of chemical peels, microabrasion, at home cleansers and pads. I couldn’t figure out what was causing my problem but I then started seeing results even after the first few days of treatment.” *
