Las Vegas dermatologist, Dr. Candace Thornton Spann, offers a number of options to treat acne in patients of any age. Acne is a common skin problem that starts when dead skin cells and oil clogs the pores creating whiteheads, blackheads and visible red pimples. Acne remains the most common skin condition in the U.S., affecting men and women of every age, although it primarily affects teenagers, as well as middle-aged adults undergoing hormonal changes. The effects of acne go far beyond visible skin blemishes. Those with acne are at greater risk of suffering depression and poor self-esteem. Additionally, acne can leave permanent scars even after the active symptoms clear. Adults with acne, in particular, are often frustrated to find that over-the-counter treatments prove significantly less effective now than when they were teenagers.
"What a great staff! Beautiful office. I have seen both Dr. Marvin and Candace Spann for cosmetic procedures and laser treatments. The Dr.s were both very attentive and made me feel comfortable in my procedures."- N.S. / Yelp / Nov 22, 2016
"I have gone to Couture Medical once a month for almost a year. I have never EVER waited for more than ten minutes to be called back. The waiting room is never packed or busy. The office staff is second to none. They are always friendly, fast, and personable. If I ever call with an issue or question, they handle it quickly and actually answer the phone when you call. I see Dr. Kim and she is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She listens, is extremely intelligent, and actually cares about your results. I absolutely love this place and am so glad I found it."- C.R. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2017
"If I could give Couture Medical 10 stars I would!! I've been a patient of Dr. Candace Spann for over 2 years. I decided to see a dermatologist for my hair loss. I was very apprehensive as I was new to the area. From the moment I stepped into the office I felt very comfortable. The office is very chic and clean. The front office staff was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Candace Spann was the same. She listened and never made me feel uncomfortable about my hair loss. She shared her own personal experience and offered solutions. She never fed me dreams simply to get money. She was very honest about everything from day one. I am currently receiving Platelet Rich Plasma injections to help stimulate hair growth. I am experiencing great success with the treatments. I am truly grateful for Dr. Candace and Couture Medical. I highly recommend making an appointment."- M.F. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2017

Some individuals are lucky, in that they will rarely experience breakouts or ongoing acne problems. The majority of people, however, will battle acne on and off most of their young and middle-adult life. Acne may be as minor as a small pimple here and there, to inflamed pours and papules. Some will have acne that is severe enough to warrant some type of surgical or laser procedure, especially those who have persistent and unsightly cysts and nodules. Treatment will ultimately depend on the severity of the acne condition.
Custom Treatment Approach@headingTag>
In many cases, combining treatments brings forth the most effective results. Successful acne treatment requires an individualized approach. Custom treatment plans designed by Dr. Spann may include a combination of the following:
- Prescription Medication
- Chemical Peels
- Medical Grade Facials
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Surgery—Acne Extraction
Surgical Removal of Acne@headingTag>
For those with severe acne, even professional skin treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels may not provide satisfactory results. For these men and women, a procedure called acne extraction may be the best option. During acne extraction, dermatologist Dr. Candace Spann will remove a large acne cyst, so that it becomes less painful, less visible, and less likely to leave a scar. Large or deep acne scars can also be removed surgically in some cases. During this procedure, she goes deep into the root to unclog the pour and surgically extract the infected particle.
Laser Treatment of Acne@headingTag>
Dr. Spann may attempt laser treatment before extraction. Acne laser surgery is able to address acne deep at the root, cleaning the infected pours. During an in-office appointment, the laser cleans, purifies and replenishes each acne spot and the surrounding area. A special vacuum gently lifts the acne impurities closer to the skin’s surface, and a broadband light is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria. Once the acne pours have been treated and are still “open”, topical ointments are applied to help keep the area clean and replenished.
