ACNE Treatment Sessions

Step 1: Deep Clean

We always start off our ACNE Treatment Sessions with a good cleanse and gentle exfoliant

Step 2: Manual Extractions

We like to manually extract Blackheads and Whiteheads with a tool rather than a machine. This way, we can really control the spread of bacteria by localizing the target extraction site. And it’s super satisfying to see….

Step 3: We choose one of the following to help control bacteria and reduce inflammation

Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel

Why do we call it a Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel?

Simple! Hollywood A-listers love this procedure prior to a big event as there is no downtime and you get that immediate glow in your skin.

Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel helps with a number of skin irregularities:

  • reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • evens out skin tone
  • helps repair sun damage
  • reduce pore size
  • manage oily skin
  • removes dead skin cells

How Does A Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel Work?

Laser energy (Nd:YAG) and a specialized liquid carbon spectra solution are used in this procedure to rejuvenate the skin.

Here’s what to expect during the treatment:

  1. Deep skin cleanse.
  2. Carbon Laser Gel is applied to your skin for approximately 10 minutes to allow the the gel to absorb bacteria and debris from the pores, and attach itself to the first layer of dead skin.
  3. You will get laser eye shields to protect your eyes.
  4. The medical aesthetician will pass a laser (Nd:YAG) over the skin on a low-energy setting. This heats up the carbon, binding it to the epidermis, boosting collagen production and filling up fine lines. If you have sensitive skin or dark patches like melasma, we may skip this step.
  5. Then another energy setting is used to remove the carbon particles that contain bacteria, debris, and dead skin.
  6. The carbon is removed through a smoke ventilator system.
  7. Then we apply custom skin care products and SPF to your skin to end the treatment.

The result: brighter skin with an immediate GLOW.

High Frequency Therapy

HF Therapy: Argon Gas

High Frequency is a revolutionary skincare technology that is used to treat bacteria on acne prone skin, reducing pore size, and even helps with fine lines and wrinkles

A High Frequency wand with Argon Gas (glows violet) helps oxygenate the surface of the skin, killing P. acne bacteria, stimulating circulation and aiding in detoxification. The contraction in blood vessels will help reduce inflammation and and persistent acne.

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) laser works by targeting the sebaceous glands in the skin that produce excess oil, which can contribute to the development of acne.

During the treatment, the laser emits a beam of light that penetrates the skin and heats up the sebaceous glands, causing them to shrink and produce less oil. This can reduce the appearance of acne lesions and prevent future breakouts.

Nd:YAG laser treatment for acne is generally considered safe and effective, but it may not be suitable for everyone.

We will also advise skin care recommendations to complement Nd:YAG laser treatment for acne.
