Acne Q & A

What causes acne?

Acne is an inflammatory condition that leads to pimples, blackheads, cysts, and other pore-clogging issues. Although acne is common among teens, primarily because of hormonal fluctuations surrounding puberty, adults can certainly struggle with breakouts for years. You can have acne due to:

  • Excess oil production
  • Improper skin care
  • High stress

Although following a poor diet rich in refined carbohydrates and sugar won’t cause acne, it can certainly worsen your breakout if you already have acne. No matter what’s causing your acne, it’s important to get it treated by a skin care expert before you start developing scars.


How is acne treated?

At Essence Skin Clinic, you can expect an effective acne treatment that’s entirely tailored to your specific skin concerns and history of acne. One of the most innovative acne treatments available at the med spa is acne phototherapy. This revolutionary treatment incorporates blue light therapy to heal your skin.

With each pulse of light, the blue wavelength activates porphyrins (a class of pigments) deep under the surface of your skin, while the red wavelength of the treatment helps improve your skin’s anti-inflammatory response. Most men and women experience a 90% reduction in acne breakouts in as few as eight phototherapy acne treatments.

Of course, because Essence Skin Clinic is also known for custom-designed clinical-grade skin care products, your dedicated skin care practitioner also helps you select products that are best suited for your skin. They even spend time counseling you on how to care for your skin between acne treatments at the clinic.

Can I get treatment for acne scars?

Yes — you won’t have to learn to live with acne scars with the help of the team at Essence Skin Clinic. Some of the most effective solutions for treating acne scars include:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Juvéderm injections
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser skin resurfacing

Applying Essence Skin Clinic skin revitalization products to your skin at home each day can also help your skin heal and minimize the appearance of acne scars.
