Acne is one of the most widespread skin ailments in the U.S., affecting roughly 60 million people each year. While many cases are considered mild and may be controlled with prescription drugs and a steady at-home cleansing routine, many patients have it so badly that scarring may occur. Acne generally is a mix of whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, small cysts, and other red, itchy, and inflamed areas on the skin. Caused by a combination of clogged pores, dead skin cells, and bacteria, it is most commonly found in teens but can affect adults well into their 40s. Acne most commonly appears on the face, chest, and back. To regain a healthy, luminous appearance, our team at Desert Medical Rejuvenation in Rancho Mirage, CA can offer numerous treatment choices, ranging from custom at-home cleansing systems, facials, peels, and microneedling to scar revision and plasma resurfacing treatments.

Research indicates that store-bought medications do not treat acne effectively. Desert Medical Rejuvenation offers many therapy alternatives to control and manage acne and clear up its standard symptoms. For active acne, we offer medical-grade skin care products that can effectively help diminish blemishes, we all perform medical-grade facials or chemical peels to help clear the skin. Medium depth chemical peels help improve the acne you are experiencing depending on your skin type, this medical solution removes the top layer of skin and even diminishes acne scarring when the solution penetrates deeper into the skin. There is very minimal or no downtime associated with our facials and peels.

IPL photofacial is another popular and effective way to treat active acne, it is a very comfortable procedure that requires 20 minutes on average; in our office we use the Spectrum® IPL from US based manufacturer Rohrer Aesthetics; in general, there is no downtime associated with this procedure.

To treat acne scars, at Desert Medical Rejuvenation we offer several options, all very effective but each one tailored for each individual patient, for instance we can use microneedling -also known as collagen induction therapy- using the Eclipse® MicroPen EVO to even out the surface of the skin, another procedure we can use is the PLEXR® Plasma Pen to minimize acne scars, or we can also use the Spectrum® laser resurfacing for deeper acne scars. The end result is usually a mild sunburn like reaction. There is usually a short 2-3 day downtime associated with any of those procedures. 

Reach out to our expert team in Rancho Mirage, CA to learn more about each of these options and which one is the best treatment for you to fight acne and its symptoms.

Dr. Art does magic! After my appointment with him I always look rejuvenated and youthful in a very natural way. His moto is less is more! No doctor has been as skillful as Dr. Art. I have been treated by him in the past 5 years and I fly all the way from the East Coast to get my treatment at Deser Medical Rejuvenation for I know Dr. Art does an outstanding job.

Hands down the best doctor I’ve ever used for my facial treatments. This man is an artist and a pro. He was able to correct some issues and every treatment he’s ever done on me has been great. The results are fantastic. I highly recommend this place. Everyone here is so nice and I always look great after.

Dr. Q is the best! I drive over an hour to see him & he’s the only dr I’ll let touch my face. He’s very conservative with his work, always leaves me looking natural but refreshed! He’s also very organized & keeps track of all I’ve had done so there’s never any confusion. Thank you Dr Q (& your lovely staff)
