3 Acne Treatments for Clear, Beautiful Skin

Acne is one of the most common skin problems, affecting patients of all skin types and ages. When excess oil and dead skin clog and block hair follicles, it encourages the growth of bacteria that cause breakouts. 

Other factors that can lead to acne include:

  • Poor diet
  • Poor hygiene
  • Stress
  • Hormonal changes

Acne treatment is very important for several reasons. It temporarily affects your physical appearance, and can also cause permanent scarring if deeper cysts are left untreated.

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we offer effective, customized acne treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion to quickly and safely clear up your skin.

Your Acne Treatment Options

Depending on the severity of your acne as well as your specific aesthetic goals, our skin clinic offers chemical peels, laser, and microdermabrasion for dramatic results.

Some of your acne treatment options include:

1. Chemical Peels

One of the most effective acne treatments available is a chemical peel. During this cosmetic procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the treatment area, removing scarred skin cells and allowing healthy cells to replace them.

Chemical peels improve the appearance of acne by:

  • Exfoliating the skin surface
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Decreasing counts of bacteria which cause the acne

Depending on the severity of your case, a light, medium or deep chemical peel may be used in combination with topical treatments and a skincare regime to optimize the improvement of your skin.


2. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion acne treatments are a great option for eliminating blackheads, whiteheads, and hyperpigmentation as well as improving skin texture.

This cosmetic treatment can be used most successfully to treat mild, non-inflammatory acne and provides an excellent alternative or addition to chemical peels to give you clear and beautiful skin.

Microdermabrasion works in three main ways to give you a healthier, more pleasing appearance:

  • It reduces active acne and inflammatory cysts
  • It improves skin texture
  • It improves the appearance of acne scars

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we use the advanced DiamondTome microdermabrasion system.

Our specialists use a diamond-tipped wand instead of the more abrasive crystals to gently exfoliate the top layer of dry, dead cells to reveal more vibrant, healthier looking skin.


3. V-Beam Laser

V-Beam Laser is an effective, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that reduces or removes any redness in the skin that comes as a result of acne.

In some cases, even though acne has healed, it leaves red spots which are a result of broken blood vessels. V-Beam laser technology can be used to shrink these broken blood vessels to help restore the skin's natural color.

V-Beam is an effective acne treatment which works to:

  • Eliminate facial redness
  • Kill acne-causing bacteria
  • Improve skin tone and texture

At our skin clinic, we use customized V-Beam laser treatments to reduce red spots caused by acne and to help return your skin to its smooth, clear and consistent complexion.
