No matter your skin type, acne is a frustrating skin condition that can put a damper on your confidence. Thankfully, Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine offers a variety of services that target and treat acne outbreaks as well as acne scarring, allowing you to reclaim your glow and your self-confidence! Our aesthetic treatments offer relief from acne without having to commit to extensive measures.
Our top treatments for acne management include:
AviClear™ acne treatment
The first and only FDA-cleared energy device for treating mild to severe acne, AviClear is a state-of-the-art laser acne treatment engineered with an innovative wavelength. One of the leading causes of acne is the overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands, which AviClear downregulates in order to reduce active acne. With just three 30-minute treatments administered over three months, you can eliminate your acne safely and effectively with long-lasting results. Not only that, but current and future breakouts will be shorter, less intense and less frequent. There’s little to no downtime associated with AviClear, so you can make the most of your refreshed complexion almost immediately!
A heat-based laser that’s especially effective for acne, Laser Genesis provides impressive results when used on its own or in tandem with AviClear. Laser Genesis works by eliminating bacteria on and under the skin, allowing it to curb active acne and redness and prevent future outbreaks while also stimulating production of collagen, which helps to shrink pores, even out skin tone, and speed up cell turnover. Best of all, since this treatment uses a non-ablative laser, there’s no downtime to worry about. For optimal results, we recommend three to five treatments spaced four weeks apart.
Forever Clear BBL®
Achieve a long-lasting luminous complexion with the help of Forever Clear BBL! Broadband light (BBL) is an advanced form of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that can reveal dramatic improvements with little to no downtime. Using a combination of blue, yellow and infrared light, Forever Clear BBL helps reduce inflammation, eliminate bacteria and promote the body’s natural healing response, leaving you with clear, radiant skin and enhanced confidence. For optimal results, we recommend a series of three to four treatments, as well as a comprehensive skin care regimen to keep your complexion clear for the long haul.
Among other benefits like more evenly toned skin, smoother texture and diminished lines and wrinkles, chemical peels can help you find relief from acne and acne scarring through intense exfoliation and skin rejuvenation. In the two weeks before your treatment, we recommend applying a medical-grade vitamin A moisturizer daily to promote cellular turnover and maximize the results from your chemical peel. We offer several different chemical peels, two of which provide relief from acne and acne scarring respectively:
● Ultra Peel® is specifically formulated to help improve acne as well as dark spots and sun damage, making it ideal for acne management.
● MD Peel® is a medium-strength peel ideal for correcting acne scarring as well as photodamage and uneven texture.
