Effective Acne Treatment

Tender, red, and elevated facial pustules and vesicles are seen with active acne. This can be very psychologically distressing especially to young adults. Without treatment, permanent facial scarring can result. Treatment includes topical and systemic antibiotics including tetracycline derivatives as well as Retin A, Accutane, and vitamin A derivatives. While Accutane has demonstrated excellent results, it must be carefully monitored for serious side effects and can cause teratogenic congenital anomalies (birth defects) in children of pregnant mothers taking this medication.

An exciting new alternative to Accutane is now available at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center. This new light based treatment using Intense Pulse Light using Levulan (aminolevulonic acid HC1) has shown 50-75% clearance of the acute acne condition. Several treatment sessions are necessary, 1-3 weeks apart, it is however necessary to avoid direct sunlight and use topical sun block. Other treatment options are available as well, including invasive treatments such as Fraxel, laser treatments, or dermabrasion.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
