What can acne treatment do for me?
Acne is a common skin condition in people of any age often caused by stress, environment, hormones, diet, and the wrong skin care products. Our certified medical staff provide a thorough skin analysis to determine to the optimal treatment for your specific acne and skin type. Then through the use of safe, intensive procedures and medical-grade FDA and Health-Canada approved laser technology, the acne is progressively treated bringing the skin closer to its clear, glowing complexion potential.
How does the acne treatment work?
Once your skin has been assessed with our certified medical staff, a treatment plan is designed as determined by the state of the acne and the type of skin.
- Active acne
In the case of active acne, chemical peels and laser treatments are used to kill the bacteria and then blackheads and whiteheads are manually extracted from the surface to set the stage for more in-depth procedures. Through the sessions, steady progress is made to resurface and treat the deeper dermal layers.
- Inactive acne
In the case of inactive acne, we begin by removing dead skin and continue with a course of microdermabrasion, medical facials, and skin resurfacing treatments by fractional laser on scarred skin caused by acne.
In both cases, take-home products are used to support and maintain clinic treatment.
