Choosing to have an acne treatment can end these frustrations and have you on your way to clearer skin. Learn more about the different acne treatment options offered and how you can benefit!


Depending on the type of acne you have, manual extraction could be used to treat your skin. Blackheads and whiteheads can be extracted by opening up the pores and removing any oils or debris. Pimples that have become inflamed or turned into pustules can also be extracted. If you suffer from cystic acne, a different treatment option will have to be used to avoid damage to the skin.

Liquid Nitrogen

A liquid nitrogen facial can be used to freeze blemishes on the face, flushing away toxins in the skin and reducing pore size, slowing future development of acne. Peeling of the skin occurs to reduce whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and other bumps. Treatment only takes a few minutes and more treatments can be performed to reduce acne scar appearance.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the skin to induce peeling of the outer layer. The damaged layer is removed to show new, smoother skin and future breakouts are prevented. Some peels can also be used to treat light scarring caused by acne.
