We offer several treatments to target specific skin issues. During your consultation, a member of our medical staff will advise what would be the most suitable for your skin tone and type
- Radio Wave, Yag or Erbium Laser Treatments: We have a variety of medical devices to treat active acne, including cystic acne without ablating the skin. These work by shrinking the oil-producing sebaceous glands, which results in the reduction of bacteria, less oil production, and fewer acne breakouts. These devices also promote collagen production which improves elasticity, texture and skin tone and can reduce the appearance of acne scars. Generally, a minimum of four to six treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended. The type and number of treatments are determined at your consultation.
- IPL or Intense Pulsed Light: IPL therapy treats a variety of skin issues including discoloration and pigmented marks left by acne infection and inflammation. IPL sends a powerful beam of light into the skin to selectively target and break up unwanted pigment. Usually, a minimum of four to six treatments is recommended for best results.
