Acne Treatments for Teens to Adults

Let us consult you on how we can help treat your acne.


ACNE EXPLAINED

Acne vulgaris (commonly called acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with multiple noninflammatory follicular papules or comedones and by inflammatory papules, pustules, and nodules in its more severe forms. Acne vulgaris mostly affects the areas of skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.

Acne is a skin condition that not only affects teenagers, but adults as well. At Avé Medical Laser Spa we offer the latest treatments available to effectively treat acne. You will receive a complementary evaluation of your skin, education about acne and what treatments can be done to achieve clear skin.


OUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

We know what works and we want to prove it to you.



Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.®

CLENZIderm M.D. ® systems are the only prescription-strength acne treatments that contain a solubilized form of 5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) to penetrate deep into the follicle and treat acne where it starts. These 3-step therapies used daily, in conjunction with other in-office treatments, can clear acne fast.

SkinMedica® Acne System

SkinMedica’s® Acne System contains salicylic acid with 2.5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) to destroy bacteria, clean deeply, speed healing and reduce breakouts on blemish-prone or troubled skin. This amazing 3-step system can gently and effectively help heal acne.

Blu-U

This procedure is non-invasive, has no downtime and no discomfort. Whether you are an adult or a teen, if you have mild to moderate acne, this treatment can help clear up your skin. The Blu-U light targets the p. acne bacteria in the follicle inhibiting the formation of acne while fighting already inflamed acne. We recommend starting with treatments two times a week for four to six weeks. (20 Minutes)

Jessner Chemical Peel

Jessners Peel contains an acne fighting property known as Salicylic Acid (a beta hydroxy acid) that removes oil and debris attached to the skin’s surface. It penetrates the sebum filled follicles and cleans out the clogged pores. This peel is beneficial for mild acne. (60 Minutes)

Levulonic Acid

Levulonic Acid works by treating the bacteria that causes acne as well as overactive sebaceous glands. In some cases, more than one treatment may be needed depending on severity of acne. This peel is most beneficial for moderate to severe acne. (45 Minutes)

Dermapen®

A revolutionary breakthrough for improving:

  • Acne scars or surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Pore size
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation

The Dermapen® is a fractional micro-needling device with unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.

The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and BBL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period.

Dermapen® offers exceptional results, is easy to use and control with little or no downtime.

Extractions

When you want a quick fix for your acne, a medical extraction is the way to go. A medical facial with extractions will immediately get rid of existing active acne lesions while preventing future flares from popping up. When you have a big event or need clear skin asap, booking an appointment for a medical facial with extractions is the answer.

Even patients with the most porcelain skin are interested in clearing up their clogged pores. We all have them; it’s just a matter of figuring out the best way to clear them out. Many patients actually cause more harm than good when they try to extract their clogged pores by themselves in the bathroom mirror. At Avé Medical Laser Spa we have skilled estheticians that specialize in the treatment of acne. They can perform medical grade facials that safely extract the comedones and clogged pores immediately.

Acne Laser Treatment

Clear, beautiful skin is always in style. The advancement of laser treatment and technology has brought therapy into the new century and is the suggested treatment for acne. Using the latest in high-tech medical equipment, acne lesions are treated at the very cause, namely bacterial overgrowth, to hasten the elimination and help prevent future breakouts.
