Acne Treatment Vancouver Area

Persistent acne can be frustrating and uncomfortable, no matter what your age. Let us help you get rid of those pesky zits for good.

Acne treatment

Acne treatments will begin with Dr. Wayne Smith examining your face for type and severity of acne. Depending on your situation, he may prescribe you a medication to decrease skin flare ups. Oral antibiotics are commonly used to fight acne in a variety of cases. Additionally, topical products can be used to calm the flare ups and prevent them from becoming as severe. Dr. Smith will work with you to determine which products are right for you. In certain cases, Accutane may also be recommended.

Acne Scarring

If your acne has decreased but you still have lasting scars from your trouble spots, laser treatments can erase the divots and bumps for good. Photofacials, or IPL (Intense Pulse Light) can decrease redness and uneven skin tone associated with acne and rosacea. Fractional laser treatment using our Icon or Sharplight laser systems can be used on acne scarring.

Our InMode Fractora micro-needling system can treat acne scarring and active acne. Tiny needles resurface either the dermis, epidermis, or both layers depending on your skin type and acne severity. By resurfacing acne prone skin, we stimulate collagen and elastin reformation, therefore improving the skins texture, decreasing the likelihood of future breakouts, and ensuring that future breakouts are less severe.
