Fighting Back Against Acne
Acne is extremely common, affecting about 85% of adolescents and young adults. Many doctors view acne as superficial and minor, but its effects can go much deeper than the surface of the skin. It can place a heavy emotional and psychological burden on patients that may be far worse than the physical impact. Studies from all over the world have looked at the effect acne has on self-esteem and self-confidence and have found definitive correlations between acne and anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders.
The evidence is pretty clear — acne has some negative psychosocial effects that can last a lifetime. Therefore, we advocate a serious, thoughtful, and thorough approach to the treatment of acne. Too many patients are simply prescribed a drying agent for their skin and an antibiotic without an evaluation of personal medical history, lifestyle factors, and environment.
Some patients definitely need antibiotics; however, excessive antibiotic usage simply contributes to the ever-worsening pattern of bacterial resistance. The truth is, with a little investigation and education, many patients won’t need pills to control their breakouts. Some natural acne treatment remedies might just be what it takes. Given the importance of a successful acne treatment to one’s self-esteem and psychological health, and the need to reduce antibiotic usage, doesn’t it make sense to explore new treatment protocols? Let the team of licensed experts create a customized acne treatment plan for you. At St. Louis Skin Solutions we take a holistic view of our patients to create the best and most effective plan.
St. Louis Skin Solutions’ Acne Solution
Have you been struggling with acne? We have a team of trained and certified Acne Specialists that will partner with you to design your in-clinic and homecare plan. This plan is designed to clear your skin within 3 to 6 months! We will educate you on acne triggers and your acne type, how to heal your skin, and give you the tools you need to get your skin clear. This is not a quick fix. Your long-term commitment is required to achieve desired results.
We start with a thorough discussion of how the St. Louis Skin Solutions’ Acne Solution program and treatments works. Together we will create a personalized treatment plan to target your skin type and concerns. We will analyze your skin with the most advanced technology using the Visia Skin Analysis System. This process analyzes your baseline skin health by measuring multiple categories including texture, wrinkles, pores and bacterial burden, UV spots, brown spots, and red areas. The licensed experts here at St. Skin Solutions will analyze your skin monthly to help track your progress along the way.
Taking care of your skin at home is essential to your success with the St. Louis Solutions’ Acne program. During the initial consultation, we will customize a skincare routine for your acne type. We will look at your Visia Skin Analysis results as well as your sensitivity, oiliness, etc. to create your customized homecare regimen. Throughout the acne program, we will reassess and adjust the products as your skin responds and heals. Your homecare can include a cleanser, toner, acne serum, masks, moisturizer, and SPF; all products are included in your acne program. The success of the acne program will only be achieved with both homecare and in-clinic treatments.
A treatment plan will be designed for you. Your Acne Solution plan will be created specifically for your grade of acne. At first, we will see you every 2 weeks to track progress and tweak the program or products. As you progress through the program, we may spread the appointments out to every 4 weeks.
Treatments may include:
Enzyme mask/Vitamin C Mask
Led Light Therapy
Green Light Laser Treatment
$1000 for 3 months or $1500 for 6 months (treatments and products included).

ESR session went well. Lora is so patient with me; can’t believe the difference the treatments are making.
I've visited St Louis Skin Solutions a number of times for various services including laser for scars, visible facial capillaries, botox and fillers. Most of these were my first time receiving the treatment so needless to say, I was nervous. They always do an excellent job and the injections have left me with zero bruising! I will continue to come back, and all the way from the deep urban city limits. Worth it.
The staff members are always kind and helpful. Easy to get appointments. Their parties are fun and informational. Dr. Miller is easy to work with on any issues. Prices are reasonable and they offer great products.
Dr. Miller and her entire team are wonderful. I’ve been thrilled with every treatment I’ve had, as well as the skincare products I now use at home. Because I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve been especially concerned about loose skin, and they’ve been able to help address this - and do so much more! I feel more confident than ever in my appearance.
