Tay River Reflections Medical Spa offers a variety of acne treatments:
The Teen Acne Power Peel involves applying a solution of balanced alpha and beta-hydroxy acids to the skin. The alpha-hydroxy acids are naturally occurring fruit acids that increase cell turnover, helping to exfoliate the skin and clear debris from the skin pores. The beta-hydroxy solution (salicylic acid) dissolves sebum that blocks the pores, clearing up blackheads and whiteheads. A series of peels is performed, each time using a stronger solution applied for a longer time as the skin adjusts to the treatment. Extractions are performed as needed to promote a clear, glowing complexion.
The Omnilux Blue LED Light helps to destroy acne causing bacteria. This may be combined with the Acne Power Peel therapy for a more potent acne treatment. Again, a series of treatments gives the best results.
The Energist IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Acne Handpiece technology also destroys the acne bacteria on the skin.
The Airgent (Enerjet) technology is an effective treatment for acne scarring. (see www.skinremodelling.com) for before and after pictures).
The Medique Skin Care Products available at Tay River Reflections include a number of potent acne treating solutions including the Medique cleanser, toner and moisturizer. For more information see www.Mediqueskincare.com.
For acne that is more severe, prescription medications may be used in combination with other treatments offered.
