Acne Treatment with LED Light
45 minutes $165
During this treatment, you will receive a customized acne treatment plus 15 minutes LED light treatment. Incorporating the LED light therapy into the treatment has many benefits:
- Speed up the healing process
- Kills the bacteria in the pores
- Reduce inflammation
- Help heal scarring, pigmentation
- Reduces fine lines, wrinkles
Our unique acne treatments are designed to gently exfoliate your skin, reduce inflammation, extract impacted pores and to calm the skin.
Your treatments will include either a very mild chemical peel or a very gentle exfoliating enzyme treatment followed by extractions, lots of skin healing serums, lymphatic drainage and a 15 minute LED light treatment. Neither is uncomfortable nor will they make your skin visibly peel or cause any discomfort. Most clients find our treatments very relaxing.
Each acne treatment has a specific focus on what the skin needs at the time of the treatment. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial and or anti-inflammatory action.
Your skin will be analyzed at the beginning of every treatment to assess which treatment would serve you best and your aesthetician will determine what changes are needed to be made to your custom home care routine.
The type of exfoliation we do is dependent on your skin’s needs and tolerances. The time we spend with extractions depends on how many you need and your tolerance. As you go through your process of achieving clear skin you will want to come in for treatments weekly or biweekly. The reasons for getting treatments are:
- For exfoliating the skin so that home-care product can penetrate the pore more easily.
- For hydrating the skin so that it is receptive to your home-care regimen.
- For extracting existing acne impactions.
- For reducing inflamed, cystic breakouts
- For reducing scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
It typically takes about eight to ten treatments over a three to six month period to get clear. Significant results will be seen within six weeks. After treatments are complete you will need to maintain your acne skin care home regimen, your diet, and your life style to maintain your acne under control. Many of our clients come in for preventative acne treatment every two months just to keep their skin as healthy and improve their scarring overtime..
Clients who have been receiving treatments consistently during the first three months have been noticing that their acne clears much faster and their scarring fade substantially.
