Is your acne taking a toll on your life? We hear you!
Acne can affect anyone regardless of age or gender—but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. Not only can it be really painful, but it can also have a pretty big impact on your self-esteem. We wish we could take a magic wand and make it go away, but we can’t. We are here to support you with treatment options that will help clear your skin—and boost your confidence.
What is Acne?
A skin condition that occurs when pores get clogged. Pimples can erupt anywhere on the body, but most people see their first outbreaks on their faces. Common types of pimples include whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts which respond to different treatment strategies.
What Causes Acne?
There are a number of factors that can be the cause and is most common in teenagers aged 12 to 17. But acne can affect people of all ages, so it’s common in adults as well. A genetic link can make some people more susceptible, but some other common triggers include anxiety, stress, diet, lack of hygiene and hormonal changes.
How is Acne Treated?
Depending on the severity, your dermatologist may prescribe medicated ointments to help reduce outbreaks or oral medications to lessen the dramatic swing in hormones. In some extreme cases, surgeries or extractions might be required.
We carry a line of gentle cleansers, toners and moisturizers that we could recommend for your particular skin type. In addition, we offer services that treat and help decrease the visible signs such as:
- Chemical Peels – A chemical peel is a treatment used to resurface the skin. By “peeling off” dead skin cells on the surface, we stimulate the body to produce new skin cells, giving you smoother, softer skin. Our Acne Lift Peel is a blend of AHA’s (Alpha-Hydroxy Acids) and BHA’s (Beta Hydroxy Acids) with protective agents to effectively treat all grades of acne as well as acne-prone or oily skin.
- Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion is a treatment that can treat and enhance your overall skin appearance. Our Teen Mini-Micro treatment is tailored for teenage skin. It includes an exfoliation process combined with suction to gently lift away the top layer of damaged skin. We then infuse the skin with valuable nutrients to enhance results.
- Fraxel Laser Skin Rejuvenation – Our Fraxel 1550 is a laser treatment for skin resurfacing and the treatment of acne scars. This treatment smooths the skin by heating up the underlying skin tissue (without harming the surface) so that your body will be prompted to produce collagen – your skin’s own healing substance that fills in textural irregularities and improves skin quality.
- Microneedling – Our micro-needling treatment helps reduce the appearance of acne scars. The process promotes the growth of new collagen in your skin, encouraging your skin to heal itself, reducing the appearance of ice pick, boxcar, and rolling acne scars.
Everyone’s skin is different, with different levels of sensitivity. We will put together a skincare regimen and suggest the best treatments for your particular skin type, so you can finally say goodbye to the effects of acne and the problems it is causing in your life!
