Acne affects tens of millions of people annually. If you have been frustrated by over-the-counter medications that are ineffective, you have come to the right place. Acne arises from an inflammatory eruption around bacteria that we leave in our hair and sweat glands without our skin. Traditional acne treatments use antibiotics and harsh cleansers to control the bacteria however prolonged antibiotic use and harsh skin cleansing may damage your skin and/or may not even control the bacteria.
We have several options to help improve acne as well as acne scars. We have several medical grade products that can help cleanse and heal your skin. We also have a microdermabrasion machine that can gently micro-abrade the surface of your skin. This reduces the thickness of the top layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, acne prone skin can be improved by helping to reduce blackheads, whiteheads and sebaceous plugs, all of which contribute to an acne breakout.
We also offer effective facials and chemical peels that can chemically exfoliate the top layers of skin. This exfoliation signals the cells inside the skin to procedure more rapidly which can help hasten skin turnover and prevent pores from becoming clogged. Studies show that about 45-50% reduction in acne lesions occur after 4-6 peels. Because we are a medical spa, our trained professionals can use mild to very strong peels as needed.
Finally while most people recover from acne without any permanent effects, some people are left with disfiguring acne scars. We have several topical treatments that can help reduce the appearance of acne scars. Whether it is ice-pick scars, boxcar scars and rolling scars, we have several treatments to reduce its appearance, such as fillers. We also have treatments to enhance your body’s ability to naturally heal the body by using lasers, microneedling and/or PRP Facials to stimulate collagen growth. These treatments not only improve the scar but also the tone and texture of the skin. Visit one or our skin care consultants to see which procedure is right for you.
