Mike has been suffering from cystic acne and have been on 3 rounds of roaccutane. Today’s session is to clear up his remaining cystic acne and to continue a Tribeam Q switch Nd:YAG treatment for his inflammatory pigmentation and to minimize his sebum production. Suffering from cystic acne for a few years, his acne has subsided tremendously over the course these few months.
Cystic, or nodulocystic, acne is a severe type of acne in which the pores in the skin become blocked, leading to infection and inflammation. The skin condition mainly affects the face, but also often affects the upper trunk and upper arms.
The truth is, that while there is no wonder cure for this often emotionally distressing problem, severe acne can be managed effectively with the help of doctors, and medical treatment can result in the prevention of some of the worst effects of cystic acne.
Most people with acne do not usually experience physical symptoms, but the skin’s appearance can cause emotional distress. In cystic acne, however, the distress may be greater, and the cysts may be painful.
The importance of treatment is underlined by the risk of scarring from long-term cystic acne. This can produce long-term and permanent damage
Today we are gonna see how we deal with cystic acne quickly through Kenalog (triamcinolone) injections intralesionally. The kenalog is mixed with lidocaine 1% to get a total of 10mg/ml. The solution is then placed inside the acne and is also used to flush out the inflammatory bacteria/pus/sebum from the acne.
We will also do an acne extraction for him towards the end of the video so don’t blink!
