Acne Bootcamp

Acne Bootcamp

A personalized, multimodal approach for treating acne created after meeting with one of our acne specialists. Our acne bootcamp considers every aspect of your life to target the root cause of your acne, treating acne from various angles.

Acne Hydrafacial

Hydrafacials provide an effective, non-invasive treatment for acne. They are suitable for all skin types and has multiple skin benefits. This includes reducing congestion by detoxifying and eliminating buildup in the pores. Each step of the HydraFacial process is essential for helping clear acne and problems within the skin:

  1. Step one: CLEANSING & EXFOLIATION. Dead skin cells are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin. Cleansing and the exfoliating process is gentle and can be compared to the feeling of using a facial brush.
  2. Step two: ACNE PEEL- The second step a peel solution formulated to improve acne. This step also helps regulate the oil levels caused by excess sebum while reducing discoloration and evening the skin tone. This peel is incredibly useful in dislodging the stubborn dirt, debris, and sebum that contribute to clogged pores and future breakouts.
  3. Step three: EXTRACTION- The extraction nozzle tip is used to suction out any remaining blackheads and impurities gently. Your aesthetician may decide to do gentle manual extraction as well depending on acne severity and skins’ tolerance.
  4. Step four: HYDRATION- Lastly, a serum composed of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid is infused into the skin. The application of this medical-grade serum improves skin hydration and improves skin elasticity. By combining hyaluronic acid and the most advanced and powerful antioxidants, peptides, and multi-peptides to replenish the skin, the skin is left hydrated, plumped up, and optimum skin health.

Forever Clear BBL

P. acnes are a naturally occurring bacterium present on the skin, as well as within pores and sebaceous glands, always. When dead skin and sebum become trapped and block the pores, P. aces rapidly multiply, causing follicle damage and inflammation. Once inflammation develops, the degree of acne evolves, forming papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. The three step laser treatments aim to break this cycle.

  • First, Skin is treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores.
  • Second, Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce inflammation and acne-associated redness.
  • Lastly, the skin receives a third pass using infra-red light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, reduce the appearance of existing scars, and enhance the benefits of the first two steps.

The total time for this treatment is about 15 minutes. Patient will continue to feel warm for 30-60 minutes post treatment. There is no downtime associated with forever clear BBL. In 7-10 days, another treatment should be performed. Most patients require a series of 4 to 6 sessions to start, with quarterly or semi-annual visits after that.

ZO Skin Health Personalized Skincare Routine

ZO takes on a multi-modal approach to skincare, allowing for the most comprehensive approach to skin health, going beyond just treating the acne itself. Skin should be fortified to renew, protect, and strengthen itself to maintain healthy skin for life. The principals behind optimal skin health include:

  • SKIN BARRIER FUNCTION- correcting epidermal weakness and dryness by restoring water, lipid, and protein balance, preventing trans-epidermal water loss and pollutions getting into the skin (leading to acne).
  • STIMULATION- Initiating cellular activity and general repair to improve both the epidermis and the dermis.
  • STABILIZATION- Normalizing epidermal and dermal cellular functions to prevent sensitivity to treatment and enable skin to renew and strengthen itself.
  • SEBUM CONTROL- Minimizing excessive sebum production to treat and maintain sebum-related skin disorders like acne.
  • CHRONIC INFLAMMATION ELIMINATION- Reducing chronic inflammation to help prevent cellular dysfunction (which leads to acne).
  • OVERCOME SKIN RESISTANCE Limiting the use of medical topical agents to prevent resistance, treatment failure and complications.

VitaMedica Clear Skin Formula Plus+ Pro Supplement

  • A combination of vitamin A plus Betatene®, a natural mixed carotenoid blend. Vitamin A support healthy skin by reducing sebum production and the buildup of keratinocytes in the follicle.
  • The trace mineral zinc supports skin health and is involved in the proper metabolism of testosterone, the principal androgen involved in acne.
  • Chromium improves glucose tolerance and may blunt the effects of a high glycemic index diet. Normal shedding of skin cells is inhibited with a diet high in simple carbohydrates.
  • Eight beneficial probiotic species plus prebiotic FOS to help balance the beneficial microbes in the gut and on the skin.
  • Bromelain, an enzyme extracted from pineapple and selenium, a trace mineral, both have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Burdock, Oregon Grape, dandelion and yellow dock contain herbal compounds known for their skin and blood cleansing properties, detoxify the skin.

Clear Skin Face Towels

  • They were created to complete every skincare routine in the cleanest way possible, ensuring the skin is untouched by bacteria, fungus, and build-up that may harbor on regular washroom towels.
  • Towels can harbor a lot of bacteria and build-up from dead skin, detergents, and makeup, which can easily cause or worsen acne.
  • Use as a hygienic way to dry your face, remove makeup, remove face masks.
  • Use as a gentle way to cleanse your face with or remove a cleanser with.

Morpheus8 Acne Treatment

Morpheus8 is a rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy, which can penetrate the skin at different depths. The deepest being 4 to 5 mm, which is much deeper than traditional treatments.

Morpheus8 is an amazing treatment for acne. The microneedles deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the pore, killing p. acnes bacteria. Not only does it destroy the bacteria that cause acne while ablating the skin tissue, it also shrinks and eventually shuts down the sebaceous (oil) glands. Without oil, p.acnes bacteria cannot survive or multiply. If the bacteria cannot inhabit a pore, inflammation will not occur causing the process that causes acne to stop before it starts.

Morpheus8 not only eliminates acne, it can also reverse the damage acne has already done. Microneedling is one of the best ways to induce college and elastin production. This mechanism is accelerated when conjoined with radiofrequency, rapidly creating healthy, new skin cells. With the production of new skin cells, acne scars and textural irregularities drastically improve.
