Do You Suffer From Old or Active Acne?
At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, we provide laser treatments that are a consistent, visible improvement in the skin with no downtime, little discomfort, and no risk. Zits, blemishes, spots, pimples, breakouts!! All of these are used to describe a common, often uncomfortable skin condition: acne. Acne can start to appear during childhood or adulthood. It affects the skin's sebaceous (oil) glands, which can produce red spots, comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), or deep pimples when they become clogged. Acne can occur anywhere on the body but usually appears on the face, neck, shoulders, upper back, and chest.

What Should I Expect During My Treatment?
The treated area will be cleaned of lotions or makeup. Specific parameters are selected for each treatment depending on your skin evaluation, your skin type, and characteristics, and extent of your skin damage to achieve optimal results. You will be lying comfortably while our licensed esthetician delivers a series of gentle pulses of a special light to the skin, in a non-invasive and safe manner. The procedure is typically very well tolerated with minimal discomfort.
Is Carbon Facial For Me?
A carbon facial is a revolutionary laser treatment that infuses carbon charcoal into the skin.
This laser treatment is extremely beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin and active acne on the face or body. A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Assisted by the laser's heat energy, the carbon powder penetrates to the dermis, stimulating skin cells, repairing, and promoting the growth of collagen and elastic fibers.
Even after your first treatment, your skin can look smoother. Improvement is gradual and will continue to be more visible after each treatment. Many individuals experience dramatic results only after 1-2 treatments; however, four to six treatments are recommended for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional yearly maintenance treatments.
