Acne is a common skin condition when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It typically manifests as an outbreak of pimples, blackheads, and cysts, primarily on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders. The condition is most prevalent among teenagers due to hormonal changes during puberty, which can increase oil production in the skin, but it can affect people of all ages.

Various factors contribute to the development of acne, including genetics, diet, stress, infection, and environmental factors. Hormonal changes related to menstruation, pregnancy, and certain medications can also exacerbate acne. Additionally, oily or greasy personal care products and certain dietary choices are believed to contribute to or worsen acne symptoms.

NeoClear by Aerolase is a laser treatment designed to address several factors contributing to acne. The Aerolase laser uses a unique 650-microsecond technology that delivers energy to the skin using a gentle yet powerful approach. This energy helps to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, and suppress excess sebum or oil production.

Agnes RF is a radio frequency-based treatment designed to address acne by targeting the sebaceous (oil) glands. This minimally invasive treatment uses micro-needles to deliver radio frequency energy directly into the sebaceous glands, destroying them and reducing oil production. Agnes RF is beneficial for treating stubborn acne and can improve acne scars by encouraging collagen production and skin tightening. By targeting the oil glands, Agnes RF helps to decrease the likelihood of new acne formation and can offer long-term improvement in skin clarity.




Rosacea is a common skin condition that can affect anyone but is most common in women over the age of 30. It causes red patches or flushing and may get worse with heat, spicy food, alcohol, and certain cosmetics. Flare-ups usually last for several days or weeks, and patients often experience flushing, visible veins, bumps, and an enlarged nose. Although there is no known cure for this condition, its symptoms can be reduced with light beam treatment.

Sun Spots

Sun spots are most common on surfaces that are frequently exposed to the sun, including the face. They are sometimes confused with freckles, but while freckles often fade when the skin is no longer exposed to UV light, sun spots remain.

Light beam treatment is an effective way of breaking down hyperpigmentation and getting rid of red or brown spots caused by excessive UV light.

Negative Effects of Aging

Even if you’ve taken great care of your skin, you’ll notice the signs of aging as you hit your 40s, 50s, and 60s. Your skin might start to sag or wrinkle, and fine lines will appear. If you don’t want to inject chemicals into your face or get a surgical facelift, light beam treatment is a great alternative. It can increase collagen production and therefore tighten your tissues.

Benefits of a Photofacial

Light beam treatment is appropriate for a wide range of patients, both male and female. Most people first come to the clinic when they are in their 30s, 40s, or 50s, but you can come to see us even if you’re younger or older. Some of the conditions that can be addressed with this treatment are rosacea, sun damage, and the negative effects of aging, which might include wrinkling or sagging skin.

Because this method is minimally invasive, almost anyone can take part. However, we will review your medical background before allowing you to book a session. If you have a severe illness or an open wound on your face, you might have to delay treatment. If you’re pregnant, we will ask you to wait until your baby is born.

Profractional Erbium therapy is a laser treatment that creates microchannels in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. Selectively ablating columns of skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact promotes rapid healing and increased collagen production, which can smooth out acne scars and improve skin tone and texture.

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. Over time, the skin becomes thicker, plumper, and more even in texture, which can significantly diminish the visibility of acne scars.

IPL Photofacials (intense pulsed light) use a broad spectrum of light to target the red and brown spots left by acne scars. The light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the pigment or blood vessels, depending on the target, and works to fade these imperfections without harming the surrounding tissue. This treatment is particularly effective for hyperpigmented scars left by acne inflammation.



The versatility of acne scar treatments allows them to be customized to address individual concerns, ranging from different scar types to unique skin conditions. Personalization of treatment parameters ensures that each patient receives optimal care for their specific scarring and skin health goals.


Reduce the number and severity of acne lesions. This includes blackheads, whiteheads, pustules and cysts.

Reduction in Acne

Effective acne treatments go beyond surface symptoms to address the root causes, such as hormonal imbalances and bacterial proliferation. 

Prevention of Future Breakouts

Our treatments  target & diminish the activity of sebaceous glands, leading to a noticeable decrease in facial oiliness. 

Decreased Oil Production

Our treatments are adept at soothing irritated skin, quickly reducing the discomfort and appearance of acne. 

Reduction in Inflammation

The recovery period for advanced treatments like NeoClear and Agnes RF is remarkably short, making them convenient options for individuals with busy schedules. 

Minimal Downtime

Agnes RF’s precise targeting mechanism ensures that only the problematic areas are treated, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. 

Precision Targeting

Enhance collagen production, essential for smooth skin, progressively refining the skin’s surface and diminishing the depth of acne scars. 

Improved Skin Texture and Tone

The positive outcomes of acne scar treatments, such as smoother skin and reduced scarring, typically endure for a long time after a complete treatment cycle.

Long-Lasting Results

  • Results can vary widely depending on the type of treatment. Some patients may notice improvements within a few days, while others may need several sessions over a few months to see significant changes.

  • While treatments aim to significantly reduce or clear acne, no permanent cure is guaranteed. Ongoing maintenance treatments and a good skincare routine can help manage the condition and keep breakouts to a minimum.

  • After receiving acne treatment, it’s crucial to shield the skin from sun exposure, as UV rays can exacerbate sensitivity and slow healing. It’s also wise to refrain from strenuous physical activities that induce sweating; this can irritate the treated areas. Lastly, gentle skincare products are essential, as harsh chemicals or exfoliants can further irritate and delay the skin’s recovery.

  • The best acne treatment depends on your skin type, the severity of your acne, any underlying conditions, and how your skin has responded to previous treatments. Consulting with us is essential in determining your situation’s most appropriate treatment strategy.

  • Most acne scar treatments offer long-lasting results, but not all are permanent, and some may require maintenance sessions. Factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle, and adherence to skin care regimens also affect the permanency of the results.

  • Acne scar treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy can decrease the likelihood of future breakouts by altering skin texture and reducing oiliness. These treatments are not a primary solution for active acne, as their main function is to improve the appearance of scars left behind by previous outbreaks.

  • Selecting the appropriate treatment for acne scars involves consulting with a dermatologist who will evaluate factors such as scar depth, skin type, and your skin’s overall health. This professional guidance ensures the chosen method aligns with your needs and cosmetic goals.

  • The recovery period after acne scar treatments can range from virtually no downtime, as seen with some non-ablative lasers, to several days, particularly with more invasive procedures like deep chemical peels or ablative laser resurfacing. The healing process is individual and depends on the extent of the treatment and your body’s natural recovery capabilities.

  • Determining the number of treatments necessary to improve acne scars is a personalized process that considers how your skin responds to the initial treatment and the intensity of the scarring. While some patients notice improvements shortly after the first session, others with more extensive scarring may require additional treatments to obtain optimal results.
