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.

IPL, or Intensed Pulsed Light, also called Photofacial, delivers selective wavelengths of light that target and destroy acne causing bacteria in the skin. After several treatments with IPL, less bacteria will be present, thus reducing inflammation of sebaceous glands and acne breakouts.
Once acne is cleared, for it’s scarring we recommend a combination of E-Matrix Sublative Rejuvenation with Frax 1550 Skin Resurfacing.

 



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.
