Acne affects people of many different ages and many different skin types. The number of treatments available are similarly diverse. The specialists at BioVital MedSpa will help you find the most advanced and appropriate treatment to help you renew your complexion.
About 80% of the population suffers from acne vulgaris (acne) at some point in their life.
The typical approach to acne treatment includes topical and systemic antibiotics, and topicals such as benzoyl peroxides, salicylic acid and systemic retinoids. Use of these products is often difficult and frustrating. Up to 60% of patients develop Antibiotic resistance. Topical medications may irritate the skin and require several months for a positive response. Finally, there have been reports of teratogenic and psychological problems associated with systemic retinoid therapy.
For this reason, BioVital MedSpa staff first employ safer effective methods that are customized to each client. Whether your acne condition is mild or extreme, our select variety of proven and safe treatments can address your specific need.
Three factors are required for the formation of acne: an increase in sebum production, a blocking of the follicle, caused by keratinization and the subsequent proliferation of bacteria. The laser is designed to target acne’s root cause, the overactive function of the sebaceous gland. In order to have the most significant impact on acne, the sebaceous gland and follicle are being targeted using laser. The thermal effect on both the upper dermis and the sebaceous gland generate a lower production of sebum as well as an antibacterial effect. Depending on each patient’s condition, BioVital´s Medical team will recommend an appropriate number of laser sessions.
BioVital MedSpa has developed a specially designed facial for active acne. It involves the use of our SkinCeuticals product line specifically made for blemished and acne skin. These are all clinical strength products made in the USA, which contain proven ingredients backed by solid scientific research. Part of the facial involves massage that will help flush out your lymph system which will clear out congestion under the skin and can help with hormonal breakouts by circulating the blood better. It is recommended to come in for a facial or peel once a month but our therapists may recommend more frequent treatments for a more severe acne condition.
