Acne and Pimple Treatment

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Some skin conditions have no known cause. Many skin disorders may arise from a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental stress, such as illness, allergens, or exposure to irritants. In this article we will discuss skin disorders like the development of acne and pimples.

What is a pimple and how do they develop?

A pimple also referred to as a zit or spot is a type of acne that can leave one feeling self conscious and embarrassed. The cause of developing a pimple can be from an action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions that are pimples. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne and pimples can lead to long lasting scarring.

The Danger of Popping a Pimple

A pimple holds oils, acne bacteria, and debris on the inside. The pustule, or pimple, is containing all this bacteria inside of it - and if popped can spread it throughout the skin's surface causing even more breakouts to appear. It can also push the acne bacteria deeper into the skin resulting in a worse pimple.


The goals of treatment are to heal existing lesions and pimples, stop new acne from forming, prevent scarring, and minimize the psychological stress and embarrassment caused by this disease. Here at WellMedica we offer a series of solutions and treatment for acne and pimples including...

Patient Testimonals

"As a 38 year old mom, wife, business woman.... Dr. Dima has my acne prone skin looking the best that it ever has. This is the first time in my life that I am not embarrassed to go out in public without foundation on. Years of dermatologists and prescription meds just never produced these results." –Tammi W.

At 31, I had unremitting cystic acne, and nothing I tried got rid of it or even slowed it down: not antibiotics, not microdermabrasion, not birth control pills. Then I read about Smoothbeam and found Dr. Ali, and meeting her was one of the single best things that has ever happened to me. After 5 full-face treatments with her Smoothbeam laser not only did my breakouts completely stop, but the super oiliness of my complexion was reversed.

"I had great service from the Dr. and staff. I had very very bad acne and with the skincare line and the laser treatments Dr. Ali did on me my skin is clear and beautiful now. When people find out I had really bad ugly acne they always say "I would have never known" I feel comfortable looking in the mirror now without make up on my skin. I really can't express what a change this has been for me." –L.S.

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

– Bonnie P.

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *

– M. Stewart
