Acne Treatments

Get clear skin with our customized acne treatments!


Acne treatments are a great way to help you combat oily skin and troublesome breakouts. We combine a deep pore cleansing treatment, extractions and a custom masque to promote moisture balance and blemish-free skin.

Common acne (or acne vulgaris in medical terminology) is the single most troublesome medical skin condition for preteens and young adults. Fortunately, we have developed safe, effective and very successful treatment programs for thousands of patients who suffer from mild to severe acne.

Acne problems can begin as early as age 9 or 10, but typically show up during puberty when hormones begin to surge. Nearly 85% of those aged 14 to 24 deal with some level of acne, even if it is only the occasional “zit” that shows up the day before a date or a job interview.

If your acne problems are becoming severe, or if over-the-counter products do not help, we recommend you visit us for a specific, detailed acne program to prevent long term skin problems such as scarring or facial discoloration.

We have found that the absolute best way to treat acne is to create an acne program specific to your needs, depending on level of severity and your lifestyle. Whether you are a student athlete that plays sports in the sun, or a busy working parent with very little time for yourself, we will design a personalized treatment program that will work with you and for you so that you can have the best results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a facial?
Once a month is recommended. The skin cells take about 28 days to reach the surface, so once a month it is beneficial to deep cleanse and remove impurities from the pores. Your dermatologist can recommend the proper skin-care agenda as well as help you maintain your skin’s well-being.

What are the benefits of having regular facials?
There are many benefits to regular facials: Clearer skin is a natural result of professional exfoliating on a regular basis, and smoother, more moist and supple skin is a result of the professional massage that may be included in your facial. As you keep regular appointments, your dermatologist will learn the cyclical changes that occur with your skin and will offer the best products for you to use.

What causes my acne to flare up?
Acne outbreaks are caused by the four "trigger factors": excess oil, pore-clogging dead skin cells, acne bacteria and inflammation. Hormones prompt your oil glands to produce excess oil, provoking the skin cells in your pores to rapidly shed. When the pore becomes clogged by trapped oil and dead skin cells it creates a perfect breeding ground for irritating acne bacteria. As your skin tries to deal with the bacteria, it becomes inflamed, eventually causing a full-blown breakout.

Do I need to use a toner?
Toner is one of the most under-rated products on the market. Our skin care line offers toning pads that are different than most. Our toning pads are designed to complete the cleansing process and keep the acne away, but it also prepares the skin to accept all of our other products such as creams, serums etc.

How often should I exfoliate? And should I do it at night or in the morning?
We recommend that you exfoliate your skin 1 to 3 times a week. Our Green Tea Scrub gently buffs away dulling surface flakes, unclogs pores and smooths out skin as it exfoliates. It does not matter whether you exfoliate morning or night, but be sure to cleanse and tone your skin first as exfoliators are not cleansers.

Why are my cheeks always red and sensitive?
Usually it is due to either telangiectasia (broken capillaries) Rosacea, or both. This is a condition that should only be diagnosed by a physician.

What can be done for occasional breakouts on the face?
The Acne Gel is great way to spot treat an occasional acne breakout. Of course, a monthly acne treatment with the right skin-care regimen can help keep those occasional breakouts away.
