Are you tired of covering acne and acne scarring up with layers of makeup?

If you’re ready for a more permanent solution, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis is eager to help you. Serving residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights, and surrounding communities in Illinois, Dr. Kotis helps patients get the clear skin they’ve always wanted with a host of acne treatment options.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is a very common condition caused by blocked pores, pimples, cysts and other blockages just below the surface of the skin. While most common in teenagers to younger adults, acne can affect individuals of all skin types and age groups.

The Acne Aftermath

Acne continues to cause devastation even after it disappears. Many people are left with noticeable scarring that tarnishes the look of healthy skin tissue. Types of scars include narrow indentations called “ice pick scars,” round depressions called “boxcar scars” and “rolling scars” which is named after the wave-like appearance to the skin as the result of bands of tissue that develop deep within the skin.

Treatment Options

Just like the scars are different, so should be the acne scar revision techniques. Below are treatment options offered by Dr. Kotis. Your appointment with Dr. Kotis helps determine which treatment is right for you.

  • Microdermabrasion

  • Fraxel® Laser Treatment

  • Salicylic Peel

The Procedure

Your treatment option will alter the type of procedure you have. However, most treatments last under two hours and require very little downtime once complete.

Perhaps the most noticeable recovery from treatment is the salicylic peel, which causes the top layer of skin to peel off over one to five days
