Acne is a skin condition that involves the oil glands and hormones. We will custom-design a treatment regimen unique to you and your individual life style. Our treatment of acne is fast, effective and growing in popularity. Safer than oral medications, the cosmetic appearance of inflamed and nodular skin is improved and patient satisfaction is high. We offer a long-term solution by directly altering the structure and function of the sebaceous (oil) glands, causing them to produce less oil which drastically reduces acne lesions without significant side effects.

What are cause of Acne:
Though the exact cause of acne has not been determined, research has shown that four key elements contribute to acne. They are: excess oil, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. During adolescence, the body begins to develop more sebum oil, which is produced to ensure our skin does not dry out. When sebum cannot flow freely to the skin, clogged pores result. Bacteria already found on the skin’s surface flourish in the excess oil, and the body responds with inflammation.
The degree of inflammation determines what type of acnes appears on the skin. A small amount of inflammation results in a blackhead or a whitehead. This means oil flow is blocked right at the surface of the skin, and is the least serious form of acne. If the pore is blocked deeper within the skin, a papule, or pimple, forms. If the pore becomes blocked deeper still, a pus-filled pimple, or pustule, forms. The most severe type of acne lesions are cysts, which occur when very deep blockage causes intense inflammation. Cysts, sometimes called nodules, are very painful bumps. Cysts can lead to scarring in a predisposed patient.
What are my Treatment options:
Not all acnes are the same. We encourage you to schedule your complimentary initial consultation with our team to build acustom-design a treatment regimen unique to you and your individual life style. Our goal is to help people feel and look their best and most beautiful! We not only care about the way you look, we care about how you feel.
When will you see results:
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment, you may see improvements; however the number of lesions and severity of break-outs should reduce over the full course of treatment and beyond. Some patients continue to improve two months after their last treatment.
How often can you have it done:
We will be able to determine the exact treatment during your initial complimentary appointment.
What can you expect immediately after treatment:
Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness and slight swelling. The redness and swelling usually dissipate over the course of that day.
Treatment for Acne Scars:
Laser Skin Resurfacing is the most effective means for acne scar treatment. It involves the use of a laser which removes the upper layers of dead skin, the epidermis, and in many cases removes part of the dermis which is necessary to treat certain acne scars. This is the best acne scar treatment for light to medium scars. We have treated many patients with our Nd: Yag laser technology.
