Unless you’ve been blessed with perfectly clear skin, there is one thing that we have all struggled with at some point in our lives — acne. Often beginning in puberty, acne is a familiar and frustrating problem that can persist through adulthood and lead to embarrassing zits, pimples and other blemishes on the face and body. 

Despite its prevalence, acne isn’t always easy to treat. If you’re bothered by stubborn acne breakouts that don’t seem to respond to creams, cleansers or prescribed medications, VITAHL Medical Aesthetics can help. We offer a number of proven acne treatments tailored to your skin to help you achieve the clear, healthy complexion you’ve always wanted.

What Is Acne?

Acne is one of the most, if not the most, common skin conditions in the world. Acne appears when our pores or hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells, oil and other debris. Bacteria then get trapped and multiply, leading to redness, inflammation and swelling.

The most common types of acne include:

  • Pimples: Pus-filled bumps on the skin
  • Whiteheads: Clogged pores that are closed with a white top 
  • Blackheads: Clogged pores that are open and appear as black dots
  • Nodules: Large, painful bumps that develop deep in the skin
  • Papules and Pustules: Inflamed pimples that resemble a whitehead 
  • Cystic Acne: A severe form of inflammatory acne

Acne often appears on the face, but it may also develop on the neck, back, shoulders and chest — areas with the most oil glands. Although acne is most common among teenagers due to hormonal changes that stimulate oil production, it can affect people of all ages. 

What Causes Acne?

Factors such as genes, stress, hormones and environment all contribute to the development of acne, so we recommend taking advantage of a personalized skincare consultation with our expert clinicians. No matter what type of acne you’re dealing with, our team is happy to develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin to help you achieve a clear, healthy complexion. 

Our Philosophy on Treating Acne

At VITAHL, we know that the journey to clear skin is deeply personal and requires more than a one-size-fits-all solution. We take a comprehensive approach that nurtures your skin health from the inside out with individualized treatment plans that meet your unique needs. Our goal is to treat your acne and enhance your skin’s resilience against future breakouts. 

Acne Treatment Options at VITAHL

At VITAHL, we offer a wide variety of acne treatments designed to address the unique characteristics of your skin. We utilize the latest tools and technology to treat even the most stubborn acne, including the groundbreaking AviClear system and a combination of facials, peels and laser therapies. Our goal is to help you achieve clearer, healthier skin that lasts.  

Embrace Clear Skin With AviClear

At the forefront of VITAHL’s acne treatment arsenal is AviClear, a groundbreaking technology and our number-one recommendation for those seeking clearer, healthier skin. This FDA-cleared laser represents a significant advancement in the management of all acne types. Unlike other devices or treatments, AviClear selectively targets and suppresses the sebaceous glands, effectively reducing the excess oil production that causes acne.

AviClear is effective and safe for all skin tones and works on all types of acne. It provides a drug-free solution to unwanted blemishes by delivering a precise wavelength of light that ensures effective treatment without harming the surrounding skin. You can expect to undergo at least three AviClear treatment sessions spaced one month apart to achieve optimal results. The process is relatively quick and comfortable, fitting easily into your busy lifestyle.

Experience the AviClear Difference

AviClear is a convenient in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia and takes just 30 minutes to complete. During treatment, the laser targets the sebaceous glands to reduce oil production, treating existing acne at the source while also minimizing the potential for future breakouts. AviClear is generally well-tolerated by patients and has been compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. Unlike prescription medications or topical solutions, AviClear provides a lasting solution to stubborn acne without unwanted side effects. 

Following each session, you’ll be free to return home and immediately resume normal activities. There is minimal downtime and few complications associated with treatment. You may experience mild redness or acne purging after your appointment, but this is normal and should subside quickly. As your skin adapts to the lower oil production, you’ll begin to notice a significant reduction in acne flare-ups. In clinical studies, patients experienced a continual improvement in their skin’s clarity that persisted long after completing treatment. 

Personalized Skincare Regimens Post-Treatment

Caring for your skin is an integral part of VITAHL’s acne treatment protocol. Our expert clinicians will develop a personalized skincare plan that complements the AviClear procedure, recommending the most effective products for supporting your skin’s overall health. 

Additional Acne Treatments

While AviClear is our premier option for treating acne, VITAHL also offers an array of supplementary treatments that can be used in conjunction with AviClear or as standalone options, depending on your unique needs and skin condition.

  • Facials: Customized to calm inflammation and deeply cleanse the pores, our therapeutic facials are more than just relaxing – they are designed to promote healing and prevent future breakouts.
  • Chemical Peels: Utilizing safe and effective acids to exfoliate the skin, chemical peels can be instrumental in reducing the appearance of post-acne marks and improving skin texture.
  • IPL Photofacial: IPL is a light-based therapy that can reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne. It’s also effective for fading hyperpigmentation left by old acne breakouts.
  • Laser Genesis: By gently heating the dermis, Laser Genesis not only addresses active acne but also stimulates collagen production, which is beneficial in the treatment of acne scars.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling stimulates collagen production by making controlled microinjuries in the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of acne scars by encouraging the skin’s natural healing process.
