Acne

Acne is the most common skin disorder in America, affecting over 40 million people.  In adults, it can often be traced to hormonal imbalance, but there are other causes, such as stress. Acne is the result of the pore (or hair follicle) becoming blocked by exfoliated skin cells that are never thoroughly expelled. Instead, the shed cells stick together inside the pore and this plug, along with the accompanying sebum, then becomes a source of nutrition for bacteria. The bacteria can then invade the pore and cause inflammation.

With top-of-the-line laser treatments as well as state-of-the-art skincare technologies, you can rest assured that Northwest Aesthetics offers the very best in acne treatments and skincare product solutions.

FRACTORA FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING TREATMENT

This resurfacing laser treatment targets acne scarring, large pores, textural issues, pigmentation and aging skin. The Fractora Fractional Rejuvenation and Resurfacing Laser Treatment also helps to stimulate collagen, renew and smooth skin.

 


CHEMICAL PEELS

One of the most popular and effective acne and scarring treatment is the chemical peel, giving your skin the opportunity for a fresh start and a new outlook. Northwest Aesthetics is one of the very few skincare clinics in the Seattle area that offers the VI Purify Precision Plus Peel. The VI Purify Precision Plus Peel is proven to be highly effective in treating acne as well as acne scarring.  VI Peel Precision Plus is one of the latest break-troughs for age-defying, radiant skin. The Precision Plus is a powerful booster and pad system developed specifically to treat stubborn melasma and pigmentation.

 


EMATRIX SUBLATIVE REJUVENATION LASER TREATMENT

eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation laser treatment tackles wrinkles, scars, enlarged pores, and rough skin.  One of the key features of the treatment is its ability to only affect the skin that needs treating. Collagen is also stimulated so that the overall condition of your skin continues to improve for months after your treatments.


 

LED LIGHT THERAPY

Light therapy are excellent treatments in combination with other skincare and laser treatments that target acne.  Blue light LEDs have been shown to be effective in the treatment of acne by destroying P. Acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. The light penetrates down to the sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin and kills bacteria from the inside out.

Red Light Therapy is proven to stimulate cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue repair and regeneration. Red light easily penetrates the skin to reduce inflammation, boost circulation and bring more blood and nutrients to the area.  The combination of red and blue light treatments can produce very significant reductions in mild to moderate acne. 

 

 

Acne treatments are available at Northwest Aesthetics Bellevue and Kent, WA locations.
