I strongly recommend Dr Baird. He is extremely professional but kind and seems very thorough. I would have to say that he must be one of the best dermatologists in the area. He is busy but I really liked seeing him and he solved my problem quickly & efficiently.”

Who is a Good Candidate?

All patients are candidates, regardless of skin tone. Individuals who have tried over-the-counter products without success, are embarrassed by their acne, or who are self-conscious due to their acne can often benefit from acne treatments. A consultation with Dr. Baird can help to determine which type of acne treatment is best for you.

How is Treatment Done?

There are many different types of acne treatments available today. Acne treatments used in Farmington Hills include:

Manual Extractions

Manual extractions involve using special tools to extract acne. The most common forms of acne that can be extracted include blackheads and whiteheads. Sometimes, pimples that have become inflamed or have become pustules can also be extracted. This is a delicate process that should not be done at home.

Liquid Nitrogen

Liquid nitrogen can be used as part of cryotherapy for acne. This involves liquid nitrogen being sprayed on the skin, causing light freezing and peeling of the skin. This can treat acne, and even remove some growths.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve a chemical solution being applied to the skin, which removes the topmost layer. This can remove outer layers of damaged skin, as well as treat acne, prevent future breakouts, and reduce scar tissue.

Acne Treatment Recovery

Recovery from acne treatment will differ depending on the type of treatment done and the individual patient. However, most patients are fully recovered a few hours to a day after treatment. You can discuss expectations after your acne treatment during your consultation.
