“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” I’m sure that everyone remembers the narcissist villain step-mother’s refrain in Snow White each time she viewed her reflection in the looking glass. It provides an interesting slice of movie nostalgia with an iconic message that resonates even today.
If you survived or are enduring the ravages of the raging hormones of your teenage or early adult years and don’t like the acne-scarred reflection that stares back at you from your mirror either, there is a simple, effective solution to all of your skincare concerns and it is as close as your local dermatologist.
Are you lucky enough to live in the Elgin Illinois area or are willing to make the drive? The rewards will more than make up for your effort. Elgin is home to Derick Dermatology, one of the finest dermatology practices in the country. Their caring, professional reputation, quality and range of services has attracted patients from all walks of life who have chosen to make Derick Dermatology the preferred skin care destination for all of dermatological and acne-related needs.
In reality, acne can be a problem at any age. Left untreated, the physical scars can last a lifetime. The emotional ones, through lack of self-confidence and self-esteem, can be even more devastating. This is why a visit to Derick Dermatology can be the first step to putting you on the road to “a new you.”
In dermatology, “one size does not fit all.” During the initial consultation and evaluation, your Derick Dermatology specialist accesses the condition of your skin. Based on the type and severity of the acne scars, your Derick professional employs state-of-the-art, cutting edge technology to formulate an individualized treatment plan, especially designed to address all your specific problems and needs.
Their array of possible treatments is impressive. Your options can include a variety of individual procedures or a combination of several. The Elgin office boasts some of the most cutting edge laser technology.
Even the type of laser employed in your treatment is individualized. Did you know that not every laser is appropriate for every patient? Before beginning treatment, a determination will be made about your skin type.
The laser that is used for light-skinned patients, in many instances, may not be the right one for a patient with a darker complexion. Your Derick dermatologist has been trained to understand the difference and is skilled in the application of their laser processes. It is just one more way that they ensure the safety of their patients and the effectiveness of their treatments.
Additional treatments may include the application of topical products, cream, lotions or a combination thereof. In some instances, these may prove to be effective solutions. In others, more extensive procedures may be required.
Although makeup may provide a partial, temporary solution, most patients come to Derick Dermatology seeking a long-term solution. If you are suffering from the physical and emotional effects of acne, a single phone call may be the solution you have been seeking. Call Derick Dermatology today. Your face will thank you for it tomorrow.
