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.

"Life Changing Experience - Dr. Marvin Spann is the best plastic surgeon! After 3 children my body was never the same. I struggled with weight loss. I was very unhappy with my body and hated mirrors. After my liposuction my life changed. I am a completely different woman. I am happy and confident. I stand in front of the mirror and admire the woman I see. I feel amazing in anything and everything I wear. The staff at Couture are simply amazing. Dr. Spann is professional and kind. The procedure was explained in detail and I felt comfortable through the entire process. The liposuction results exceeded my expectations. Thank you Dr. Marvin and all the Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Staff!!!!!"- C.C. / RealSelf / Oct 18, 2020

"My family and I have gone to them forever. They are a family to myself and my kids. My son had the horrible acne and they helped him. My daughter had moles removed when she was younger & more recently when she had a horrible rash after a c-section (they squeezed her in repeatedly and helped her. Lastly, I myself had different treatments for skin cancer - first time about 7-8 years ago a big chunk of nose removed & Dr Marvin stitched it up beautifully after Dr Candice diagnosed. Also, last year to spots on my hairline needed removal & Im all healed and much hair has returned. I recommend them highly!!!"- C.H. / Facebook / Apr 04, 2022

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 pores 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
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
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 pore and surgically extract the infected particle.
Laser Treatment of Acne
Dr. Spann may attempt laser treatment before extraction. Acne laser surgery is able to address acne deep at the root, cleaning the infected pores. 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 pores have been treated and are still “open”, topical ointments are applied to help keep the area clean and replenished.
