Acne Treatments – Minneapolis St. Paul, Minnesota
Most people think of acne as a problem just for teenagers, but it can affect anyone, at any stage of their life. As with teenagers, it is an embarrassing condition that decreases your self-confidence and affects how others see you and how you feel about yourself. The good news is that there’s effective, non-antibiotic treatment at any age, and our medical spa can help you or your teenagers look and feel better by eliminating or minimizing the outbreaks. We can also help reduce the appearance of scarring. The key to a solution is our medical, clinical approach, using proven techniques and products. Over-the-counter products just can’t match our results.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments for Acne
A leading cause of acne is the growth of bacteria inside the hair follicles of the skin. This cause is often treated with antibiotics, but those treatments can cause serious side effects for many people. Clinical studies have shown that exposure to intense pulsed blue light is effective in killing those bacteria and reducing the severity of acne. The use of this treatment has many benefits:
- No Side Effects
- Quick and Safe
- Wipes Out Bacteria
- Clinically Proven
- Long-lasting Results
Using our state-of-the-art Palomar StarLux Intense Pulsed Light system, a typical treatment takes less than 30 minutes. The time depends on skin condition, the size of the treated area, and the desired outcome. The treatment is pain-free and usually improves the condition for at least a month, as demonstrated in the above before and after photos.
CLENZIderm MD is clinically proven to penetrate skin pores more effectively than other prescription benzoyl peroxide products. As a result, this powerful medication instantly penetrates the pores and begins reducing acne below the skin surface, providing a clearer complexion as early as 2 weeks.
Obagi CLENZIderm MD is distributed exclusively by physicians and is clinically proven to treat three of the primary causes of acne:
