PLEASE DON'T PICK!

I'm here to help you with your acne, your dark spots, your scarring and with any other goals you have with your skin, but I need your help in return! PIH developes after a pimple becomes inflammed. As the skin heals, it produces too much melanin (the protein which gives our skin it's color). It is the excess melanin that darkens and discolors the skin. I know dealing with acne can be frustrating but picking or popping a pimple just makes everything worse! So what are the treatment options for PIH? There are several: If you have minor to moderate acne, I recommend a series of physician grade peels to get the healing process started and lighten the dark spots. https://www.mycnmedical.com/services/exfoliate  

Alternating the peels with The Hollywood Laser Peel treatment can help calm, remove bacteria, brighten, and refine your pores. https://www.mycnmedical.com/services/hollywood-laser-peel

Once acne is under control, then if needed, a series of Micro Laser Peels can help with resurfacing the skin which will help with any scarring, hyperpigmentation, and also rejuevenates the skin. https://www.mycnmedical.com/services/skin-resurfacing

It is very important to continue the benefits of any of these treatments by using professional cosmeceutical grade products which are recommended specifically for your skin and it's concerns at home.  What you do at home is just as important as the treatments you are receiving. And finally, I can tell if you picked, so just don't and we can reach your skin goals sooner then later!
