What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It is characterized by the presence of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and nodules, primarily on the face, chest, back, and shoulders. Acne can affect people of all ages, but it is most commonly associated with adolescence due to hormonal changes.

Causes include:

  • Excessive oil production: Increased oil (sebum) production by the sebaceous glands can contribute to acne.
  • Clogged pores: When the hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells, it creates an environment for acne-causing bacteria to thrive.
  • Hormonal changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, particularly during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, can trigger acne breakouts.
  • Bacterial infection: Propionibacterium acnes, a type of bacteria that normally resides on the skin, can multiply and cause inflammation, leading to acne.
  • Certain medications: Some medications, such as corticosteroids and certain birth control pills, can contribute to acne formation.

What are my treatment options?

Acne Therapy IPL (Intense-Pulsed Light) This FDA-approved treatment provides acne sufferers a non-drug, easy and effective alternative without the side effects commonly associated with medications. IPL acne therapy treats the root cause of acne, which is the sebaceous glands, without downtime. 

For best results, this should be done in a series of three treatments, over the course of three months (one treatment each month). 

Depending on your skin’s unique condition and needs, our medical estheticians will guide you toward the best treatments to heal acne and provide you with information on the right skincare lineup for use at home. 

After all, the first line of defense in acne control and prevention is a quality skincare routine.

This procedure triggers a natural immune response that allows the skin to disinfect, remove debris, increase blood flow, and activate the creation of new tissue. The treatment delivers dramatic results without the use of heat or chemicals.

Combine this with the addition of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) which uses your own blood’s platelet-rich plasma for even better results in reducing acne scars.

Chemical peels can be used to improve the appearance of the skin, including treating acne and acne scars. This process stimulates skin regeneration and can help in treating acne by:

  1. Exfoliating the skin which unclogs pores unclogging pores, and promoting cell turnover. This can help prevent the formation of blackheads and whiteheads and reduce acne breakouts.

  2. Reducing oil production with salicylic acid which allows the ability to penetrate the pores and reduce oil production and prevents acne formation.

  3. Killing acne-causing bacteria which can help eliminate the acne-causing bacteria present on the skin, reducing inflammation and preventing new acne lesions.

  4. Improving acne scars by removing the damaged outer layers of the skin which can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and make the skin smoother and more even-toned.
