Acne Treatment in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX

Blemishes are one of the most common complaints among adults and children. From the surface, acne appears to be an easy problem to remedy, but chronic acne is complex. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers acne treatments for both men and women in Monroe, Alexandria, Shreveport,  the Ark-La-Miss, Southlake, TX and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.


What is Acne?

Acne is a condition that develops due to a combination of problems with the skin, and this is why many over-the-counter products do not work for people who have chronic acne. Issues that lead to acne are:

  • Dead skin cells
  • Oils on the skin
  • Bacteria

Although it appears that acne is a sign of poor hygiene, the skin can be relatively clean and still develop blemishes.

How Much Does Acne Treatment Cost in Monroe, LA and Southlake, TX?

A personalized treatment plan is the best approach to acne treatment. Dr. Hopkins develops your plan during the appointment. Once we have her recommendations, we can discuss pricing before you proceed with treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Acne Treatment?

Professional acne treatment addresses all of the aspects of blemishes without damaging healthy skin. Your breakouts occur less frequently and are less severe. Over time, you are able to control acne and may have no breakouts.

How Do I Know If I Have Acne?

Acne is a general term that describes several types of blemishes that develop on the skin, such as:

  • Whiteheads
  • Nodules
  • Blackheads
  • Pustules
  • Cysts
  • Papules

Acne can develop anywhere on your face and body, but is most common on the chest, face, back, buttocks, upper arms, and neck.

What Should I Expect from Acne Treatment?

The goal of professional acne treatment is to improve your skin health so that blemishes cannot develop. The process of finding the right treatments for you can take time, and your skin may break out when you begin treatment. Give your skin several months to balance and improve from within the pores.

TheraClearX is an acne therapy system that offers quick and comfortable acne treatments with no anesthesia required. TheraClearX combines a gentle vacuum system with broadband light therapy.

What Should I Expect from TheraClearX?

Your visit for TheraClearX injections will be convenient and comfortable. It requires no pre-medication, topical gels or anesthetics. To perform treatment, the handheld TheraClearX device will be placed on the skin. The vacuum technology will apply suction to the skin’s surface, removing impurities from the skin. Then, targeted broadband light will be applied to the skin to destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce oil production. The handheld device will be maneuvered around the treatment area until the entire surface has been targeted. This treatment takes less than one hour to perform.

Is There Any Downtime After TheraClearX?

There is no downtime required after TheraClearX treatments. You can resume all normal activities immediately following your TheraClearX treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from TheraClearX?

The results from TheraClearX will develop gradually as the skin responds to treatment. Most patients will begin noticing results after the second treatment, with continued improvements developing with additional treatment sessions. During your consultation, we’ll assess your skin to determine a personalized treatment plan. This will include a recommended number of treatment sessions, which we can help you schedule appropriately.

"Lifesaver. I went to Dr. Hopkins’s after 3 years of going to different dermatologists in the ArklaMiss. My first appointment with her was me sitting in my car on a virtual FaceTime call. She prescribed me meds that day. I felt relief the next day. She was a healer for real and I’m so grateful 💕" - Meshelle S.
