Acne is distressing no matter if you are a teenager or an adult. It can be caused by high bacteria levels, hormonal changes, stress or simply reaction to the environment.
What will the treatment entail?
Excel Medi Spa’s approach is highly customized. The acne treatment will include a thorough history and skin analysis and will proceed to a deep cleanse, exfoliation/chemical peel, manual extraction and detoxifying mask that will help draw the impurities.
Further treatments either with the aesthetician and/or Medical team including Dermatologist/Plastic Surgeon performing a series of chemical peels and /or laser treatments will be recommended along with daily home skin care regimen.
What are the contraindications to this treatment?
If you are currently under the care of a dermatologist and are taking oral Vitamin A therapy (i.e. Accutane) a deep facial cleansing, and chemical peel/laser treatment are contraindicated for a minimum of 6 months upon terminating oral medication. If you are using topical retinoids (Airol, Adaferin, Retin-A) it is recommended to stop use of these products for 4-5 days prior to treatment and to notify the aesthetician prior to the treatment.
How will I be after my treatment?
