Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or any clogged pores that occur on the face or body. Most acne occurs during the adolescent years, but it can sometimes occur before or even after the teenage years.
Acne can often play a detrimental effect in one’s self-esteem because it hides the natural beauty of a person’s facial features. Normally, minor acne will come and go on its own, recurring more frequently during the years of adolescence and becoming less thereafter. Occasionally, acne can continue to cause problems for a person later in life. More severe cases of acne can lead to more serious, permanent scarring.
Agnes RF Microneedling for Acne
Agnes RF Microneedling works to heal and prevent acne by destroying the sebaceous gland. During the treatment, the needles are used to puncture the sebaceous gland, then delivers radiofrequency energy to destroy it. This reduces oil production to prevent future breakouts.
BBL Hero uses light energy to target and remove unwanted pigment or other irregularities from the skin. This makes it an effective option for treating pigmented acne scars. The blue BBL light also reduces acne-causing bacteria, while the red light reduces inflammation and redness.
Chemical peels use a chemical solution, usually an acid, to ‘peel’ away the top layers of the epidermis in order to improve conditions such as acne, irregular pigmentation, or wrinkles. They can range from mild to aggressive and, depending on the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated. This allows new, fresh skin to be exposed, creating a vibrant appearance, promoting a rosy glow or even drying up an acne flare up. Our clinicians will work with you to see what type of peel would work best with your specific skin type and acne issues.
Genius RF Microneedling
Genius RF Microneedling helps boost collagen production and healthy new cell growth, which diminishes the appearance of acne scars. The treatment works to break apart the collagen that makes up an acne scar and replace it with new, healthy tissue by stimulating the skin’s natural healing process.
Photodynamic Therapy with AFT Intense Pulsed Light Treatments
We offer photo dynamic therapy activated with Intense Pulsed Light, which is extremely effective in reducing moderate acne due to hormonal imbalances, overactive sebaceous glands, and/or bacteria in teens and adults. This treatment involves the application of Levulanic acid (this is pain free), a period of rest, and then a session of intense pulsed light. The Levulanic acid (a safe acid naturally produced by the body) activates the bacteria to make it susceptible to light therapy and shrinks sebaceous glands so less oil and sebum is produced.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. The micro-needling treatment creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin. This treatment is safe on any skin type, has a short treatment time, and has minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime.
