Focus Medical Spa Acne Treatment Program
Acne is a skin condition that if left untreated, or treated incorrectly with minimal improvement (as it often is), can lead to lowered self esteem and avoidance of social situations. At Focus Medical Spa, we have developed a comprehensive program to effectively treat acne using the newest and most innovative proven techniques.
The program starts with a evaluation of your skin and acne by our staff registered nurse and medical esthetician. We will explore possible causes of your acne and educate you about this condition, what causes it and how to develop a cleansing routine that will reduce the chances of breakouts.
After your initial consultation, you will be treated with a medical microdermabrasion, which removes the top layer of skin and accumulated dead skin cell and other dirt and debris to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. Depending on your skin type and state of your acne, you may also receive chemical peel later the same week. Chemical peels also work by removing the upper layer of skin to allow the healthy, unaffected skin underneath to show.
In the second week of your treatment, you will receive blue light therapy, a laser light treatment that kills the bacteria that causes acne. Without this bacteria present, acne clears up rapidly. In an article published in the British Journal of Dermatology, phototherapy with blue light was studied in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. More patients achieved marked improvement or clearance of their acne when treated with blue light therapy than in any of the other treatment groups. The FDA approved blue light therapy for acne in August 2002.
Focus Medical Spa has its own acne skin care product which you are using during your treatment program.
Our goal is to provide an individualized, high-quality treatment for each patient for effective and permanent result.
