Acne can affect anyone, from teens to adults. While it affects some people more than others and it is most common in puberty, many people have to deal with it at some point in their lives.
If you are tired of your acne and want to seek treatment that can reduce or eliminate its appearance, Serene Medical Aesthetics can help. Acne is often caused by hair follicle pores that are blocked by natural components of the skin. Paired with our acne skin care plan and IPL laser, our acne treatments attack the bacteria in the pores to heal acne bumps and cysts. Laser treatments will also target the overactive sebaceous glands.
Why treat acne with a laser?
Well-being: Acne can cause scaring and emotional distress. Treatment can help make you feel better and more confident.
Painless: Unassisted laser treatments can sometimes be mildly uncomfortable. If pain is a factor for you, our anesthetist can make sure you are completely comfortable.
It’s predictable: Most of our patients have acne improvement after average of 5-8 sessions.

IPL laser treatments can treat both acne scarring as well as current acne outbreaks as well, and it may potentially reduce the likelihood of future outbreaks. This is because the light beam will also target the bacteria in the skin that is responsible for promoting the continued occurrence of acne.
The sebaceous glands will also likely produce less oil after a treatment, and with less oil comes less acne.
Blue light has been shown to penetrate the skin's hair follicles and pores which harbor bacteria and can cause inflammation, and therefore acne. Bacteria are very sensitive to the blue light spectrum—it shuts down their metabolism and kills them. This light treatment eliminates the acne-causing bacteria (otherwise known as P.acnes) within the skin before in can feed off the oil glands and cause that redness and inflammation
Chemical Peels A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Chemical peels allow new, healthier skin to emerge. A chemical skin peel involves the application of a solution to the entire face or to specific areas to peel away the skin’s top layers. At Serene Medical Aesthetics, we will customize the peel to meet your needs
For mild acne or scaring left from acne. micro-needling treatment is a procedure that uses a bunch of tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin. This process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, post inflammatory hyper pigmentation (red scaring) and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
