BEST ACNE TREATMENT

LED (Light Emitting Diodes)

The Light Emitting Diodes (LED) emit blue, red and yellow light to effectively treat acne by killing the p. acnes bacteria and reducing inflammation associated with acne prone skin. At the same time, it also stimulates collagen to improve wound healing. Regular treatment results not only in a reduction in acne but also a glowy appearance and improved texture of the skin. LED is excellent when used in combination with keratolytic agents which gently remove the top layer of dead skin and debris.

How many sessions will I need?
8 sessions are recommended bi-weekly to start seeing results.  Depending on your skin condition our doctors may also recommend oral or topical agents to further enhance your results. Each session will take about 30 minutes total with face cleansing and post-procedure care.

Is it painful?
No there is no pain or downtime with this gentle treatment. 

ENERPEEL

Enerpeel® PA is a pyruvic acid peel excellent for addressing oily and acne prone skin. It is a medium depth chemical peel which has been clinically shown to reduce oiliness of the skin and improve pustular papular acne with minimal side effects of redness and peeling.

 

How many sessions will I need?
We recommend 4-6 sessions about 1 month apart. Each session will take about 30 minutes total with cleansing and post procedure care.

Is it painful?
You may feel a slight tingling sensation but there is not pain.

Is there is any downtime?
No, other than some minor peeling of the skin which can happen there is no significant downtime.

CARBON PEEL LASER

A Carbon Laser Peel involves the application of a thin layer of carbon lotion onto the skin followed by laser light from a Q-switched Nd-YAG laser. This causes tiny multi-explosions of the carbon particles which exfoliates the skin and clears out debris from the pores. The Laser energy then works to improve acne by shrinking the pores, reducing inflammatory acne and at the same time stimulates collagen regrowth. The immediate effect of the treatment is a brighter looking complexion and tightened skin.

How many sessions will I need?
About 5-10 sessions are recommended 2-4 weeks apart depending on your skin condition. Each session will take about 30 minutes total with face cleansing and post-procedure care.

Is it painful?
No there is no pain, other than the multi-explosion sound from the carbon (which we can provide ear plugs for) the procedure is very well tolerated.

Is there any downtime?
Some patients may experience mild redness of the skin form the thermal energy which will subside within a few hours.
