Our Acne Treatment Services
Each person’s skin will react differently to acne treatments. Depending on their skin type, lifestyle habits, and genetics, what can work for others may not work for your skin. Here at Thrive Skin + Wellness, we customize acne treatment plans to suit your skin type and condition.
An acne facial is a quick fix for clearing up acne. This treatment reduces acne by removing impurities, debris, and oil using exfoliation. During exfoliation, dead skin cells are removed to clear up dry and clogged skin.
After cleansing, whiteheads and blackheads are extracted from the pores. If these impurities are not drawn out from the skin, they can worsen and take longer to heal.
Your face will be massaged and left with a facial mask as a final step for this treatment.
Topical and Oral Medications
Acne medications are prescribed to reduce oil production, swelling, and bacterial infections. Results can take months to years to appear, which is why this is usually an additional maintenance step with acne facials and laser treatments.
Depending on your skin type, you may be prescribed retinoids, antibiotics, salicylic acid, or other treatments. You may also be directed to take combined oral contraceptives to balance your hormones, anti-androgen agents, or isotretinoin.
The correct medication will depend on your skincare professional’s assessment of your face, skin health, and lifestyle.
Acne Laser Treatments
Acne laser treatments affect the oil-secreting sebaceous glands in the skin. This decreases oil production, preventing acne formation and clearing up the skin.
Laser treatments also target acne scars using light therapy. Acne scars can result in uneven skin surface and color, which are difficult to treat using skincare products like toner or astringent alone.
