NEW! Pore Clarifying Treatment
A newly patented technology that opens blocked pores, flushes away impurities, while infusing pores with salicylic acid to speed the healing process - all in one fast, painless step. Keeping pores clear of debris like dead skin cells, this treatment reduces blockage and prevents breakouts. Patients will see dramatic improvement in 7-14 days after your first treatment.

Acne Facials
Acne facials are customized based on skin type and severity of acne.  The treatment includes a chemical peel followed by comedonal extractions.  The process cleanses the skin, removes dirt and debris from clogged pores, gently exfoliates dead tissue and leaves the skin soothed and hydrated.  Acne facials are an excellent addition to topical and oral treatment regimens or for someone with occasional breakouts.

PDT for Acne
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is an effective way to treat acne.  The process involves the use of a photosensitizing agent (Aminolevulinic Acid) and the application of a light source to activate the chemical.  A short rest period is associated with the treatment to allow time for the medication to “incubate” on the skin. 

This treatment is ideal for patients with inflammatory acne that has not responded to topical treatments or for patients who cannot tolerate or wish to be on oral medication.  It does require 48 hours of sun and bright light avoidance.  Several days of redness, swelling and peeling is expected followed by a much smoother, even-toned appearance of skin.  Depending on the severity of acne, 2 to 3 sessions might be required at 6-week intervals.

All of these procedures are considered cosmetic and non-medically necessary by insurance plans.
