Although acne plagues primarily adolescents with fluctuating hormones, unfortunately acne can persist in adults of any age. If you have moderate to severe acne, or acne flare-ups, at The Plastic Surgery Clinic and MD Beauty Clinic we can recommend the right treatment plan that will eliminate your acne and keep your flare-ups at bay.
Acne primarily occurs when dead skin cells, dirt and oil clog your pores and hair follicles resulting in pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, skin lesions, and a number of other skin ailments.
Acne can be caused by fluctuating hormones or a hormonal imbalance, or by bacteria, or simply from your skin type (if you have very oily skin that regularly clogs your pores for instance).
Acne can be very persistent and can cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance, but luckily there are a number of options from peel treatments to a good at home skincare routine that can keep you acne-free.
We invite you to book a complimentary consultation with one of our doctors in order to assess the severity of your acne and to prescribe a customized treatment plan for your needs.
At The Plastic Surgery Clinic and MD Beauty Clinic, we have a number of ways that we approach treating various degrees of acne.
The following treatments or combination of treatments are what we often recommend for patients suffering from acne.
Morpheus8 is one of our favourite new treatments for combatting acne. This skin resurfacing treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency and can penetrate the skin deeply allowing it to destroy the bacteria that creates acne while ablating the skin tissue. It is a revolutionary new treatment that targets acne at its roots but equally addresses numerous skin concerns and improves on the overall appearance of your skin and skin texture.
This is a skin resurfacing treatment that we recommend for patients looking to minimize the appearance of mild to severe acne scarring. In order to undergo this treatment any active acne needs to be under control. In order to stifle your active acne we will recommend a number of other in clinic treatments and skincare.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy can help to eliminate bacteria that causes acne as well as minimize post-acne inflammation.
Our very own Miracle 10 glycolic acid and salicylic peels are known to be extremely effective in targeting and minimizing the appearance of acne, shrinking your pores in order to keep bacteria at bay, eliminating blackheads, as well as in reducing redness and inflammation.

Depending on the root cause of your acne, acne can be one of those skin conditions that can flare-up for various reasons. That said, typically if you keep up a good skincare routine using the right products and treat your skin to peels and other treatments from time to time or as needed, you should be able to control and minimize your acne flare-ups.
It can take some time to see your skin clear, so be patient with yourself.
