What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by the presence of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes deeper cysts or nodules. It typically occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of various types of acne lesions. Acne can develop on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders.

Treatment for acne involves a combination of strategies to manage symptoms and prevent future breakouts.

Based on your individual needs, we will customize a treatment plan below to improve your acne symptoms.

  • Lifestyle and Skin Care: Maintaining good skin hygiene, including regular cleansing and avoiding excessive scrubbing, can help prevent acne. Medical-grade skincare products can improve your skin congestion and help minimize breakouts.

  • Light and Laser Therapy: Some individuals with acne may benefit from light and laser treatments, which can reduce inflammation and improve skin texture.

  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layer and can help improve the appearance of acne and acne scars.

  • Hydrafacial and LED light therapy: Hydrafacial treatments cleanse, extract, and nourish the skin. Customized boosters paired with LED light therapy can be used to help with congestion skin by reducing inflammation and bacteria.

Acne treatment plans are tailored to the individual's specific type and severity of acne.
