Blue Light Therapy
Using blue LED lights, we are able to manage and treat the appearance of acne! The specific wave lengths of blue led lights develop oxygen radicals that target and kill P. acnes bacterium, the bacteria that is responsible for causing acne breakouts! This is an FDA approved treatment for moderate acne that can be unresponsive to other treatments. Receiving Blue Light Therapy also reduces inflammation in the skin. It is safe, effective, and requires just 30 minute in-office session!
Patients will sit under the blue light targeted at the facial skin for 20-30 minutes, and it is recommended to be done twice a week, for a month. This treatment is painless, non-invasive, and requires no downtime!
Reveal new skin with our exfoliating treatment, Microdermabrasion. Acne can be caused by clogged pores, resulting from a build up of dead skin cells, dirt and oil. Exfoliating your top layer of dead skin cells away can prevent future breakouts and reveal fresh, smooth skin. This treatment is ideal for managing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation caused from acne and sun damage.
Lack of exfoliation can consequently lead your skin looking dull, uneven, and rough! Using our NueSkin system, aluminum oxide crystals will sand away the top layer of skin. This allows for gentle exfoliation while simultaneously vacuuming away the dead skin. Common uses for Microdermabrasion is to address the appearance of scars, acne scarring, age spots, and wrinkles.
After treatment you will notice improved skin texture and tone. 4-8 sessions are typically required for optimal improvement, and there is no downtime or recovery necessary, allowing you to resume daily activities as normal.

Our VI Purify chemical peel is designed to specifically target and combat acne, by unclogging pores and killing acne causing bacteria! Using a chemical peel is a great way to hit the reset button on your skin, as it completely sheds the top layer of dead skin and debris, and effectively reduces oil production to reduce the occurrence of acne-causing clogged pores.

Benzoyl peroxide is an antimicrobial effective at killing acne causing bacteria, and increasing cell turnover to allow speed up the elimination of acne, and works specifically well with more severe inflammatory acne.
Kojic acid is a powerful skin brightening agent that can quickly fade discoloration in the skin from acne scars, sun spots, and age spots, revealing an even-toned, and overall brighter complexion.
