Treatable Conditions

Active acne

For active acne, we use a blue laser light (Blue-U® or BBLTM) alone or in combination with a photosensitizing agent to destroy the bacteria causing the acne. These treatments are not painful.  When the photosensitizing agent is used, there is often a short period of down-time. Please visit our section on Photodynamic Therapy for more details on these treatments.

More gentle treatments for acne include skin peels with salicylic acid or glycolic acid. We also offer specialized facials to calm your skin. Always remember that a daily skin routine is essential in preventing break outs. Our experienced technicians will be delighted to design a home skin care program to bring out the best in your skin.
