Acne and Acne Scarring

Acne is caused by two main problems:

  • Overactive oil glands, and
  • Overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria

The solution, then, is:

  • Target oil glands and reduce sebum production
  • Kill bacteria


The following treatments are used to solve the underlying causes of acne:


  1. Blue light, or phototherapy, consists of gentle, painless, short sessions of light exposure which kills acne bacteria. It is completely non-toxic, and there is no downtime. Sessions are done weekly for 6-12 weeks, with maintenance sessions thereafter as needed.
  2. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can help to clear pores of oil and impurities, as well as have a regenerative effect on the skin.


Acne scars can be softened using a CO2 fractional laser, microdermabrasion and a newer technique called carbossitherapy, which breaks down scar tissue and improves blood flow and oxygen levels in the skin, promoting healing. We also have several physician-grade facials for the treatment of acne.
