Acne & Acne Scars

What is acne?

While it can be socially devastating and may cause depression, anxiety and low self-esteem, acne is a very common skin condition affecting some 3 million people per year in the United States. Acne occurs when the hair follicles get saturated with oil and overrun by dead skin cells. Bacteria may also be present, causing infection and pus. A pimple, whitehead or blackhead will form on the face, forehead, back, chest or shoulders. Acne tends to affect those younger in age the most, but it may also be present in adults.

What are some of the best treatments for acne and acne scarring?

IPL Photofacial

The IPL photofacial employs broad-spectrum light to penetrate both the surface and deeper layers of the skin, destroying bacteria and combatting overactive sebaceous glands. Collagen production is also stimulated, which can help reduce scarring.



During mirconeedling, a drove of tiny needles is used to penetrate the pores at customized depths in order to trigger the body’s collagen production, or wound healing response. The topmost damaged layer of skin is removed in the process.



The HydraFacial is a non-invasive skincare treatment that can help unclog the pores, destroy harmful bacteria, and improve the skin’s texture, reducing acne scarring. Antioxidants, serums and peptides are then infused to help nourish, replenish and revitalize an ailing complexion.
