Acne and acne scarring

Dr. Salaam hears concerns related to acne from patients of all ages. This condition does not affect only those in their teenage years, nor individuals with only a certain skin type. Acne is typically seen in adolescents due to the surge of hormones that occurs during this time of life. There are other times, however, when hormones may fluctuate, increasing one’s potential for breakouts.

There are several options when it comes to dealing with acne. Living with broken out, irritated skin is not one that most people really want to do. There are many people, however, who may feel lost in their search for a workable solution to acne. Dr. Salaam offers a number of different treatment options, as well as personalized care that maximizes the strengths of each of her patients’ skin. One thing she does not recommend is going without treatment. Acne is not only physically evident, but also poses a significant risk to emotional wellbeing.

What to do about acne


Typically, it is acceptable to use an over-the-counter acne solution at the first sign of a breakout. Cleansers used on irritated skin should be gentle so that further aggravation does not occur. What often happens with over-the-counter treatments is that they either do not produce results or they simply make the skin worse. If this has happened in your case, we invite you to restore health to your skin at the Memphis Center for Aesthetic Medicine.

Dr. Salaam is an experienced Germantown aesthetic provider who has helped many of her patients achieve healthier, clearer skin. Acne treatments are designed around each person’s needs and his or her specific circumstances, such as the type and severity of acne. Taking the various important factors into consideration, Dr. Salaam may design a treatment plan to include topical medications or antibiotics, oral antibiotics, laser therapy, light treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or other therapies. By using proven, medical-grade products and procedures, our patients tend to achieve their desired outcome within about 8 weeks, gradually seeing skin return to its healthier condition.

You have every reason to treat acne gently and efficiently. With professional care from your dedicated cosmetic surgeon, you can say goodbye to existing acne and keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Call 901-244-5688.
