Acne can affect both adolescent and adult patients and can be a source of self-consciousness and concern. Although acne affects patients of all ages and skin types and tones, each person requires a personalized approach to address the contributing factors
At Illuminate Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Palo Alto, we take a specialized approach to treating acne through our extensive knowledge, experience, and the most effective acne treatments on the market today. During your consultation and throughout your acne treatment Palo Alto aestheticians at Illuminate will assess your acne to create your best path to clearer skin.
Contrary to popular belief, acne is not a product of your diet, lifestyle, or hygiene. However, in patients predisposed to acne, these factors may impact its severity. Acne has three primary causes:
In order to treat acne effectively and for the long-term, its critical to understand and address its cause. Our licensed Palo Alto aestheticians will work with you to develop an optimized treatment program that will give you the blemish-free complexion you've always wanted.
We have a solution to your acne. Our Palo Alto acne treatment recommendations depend on the type of acne and its cause. Everyone is different, so treatment plans should be too. Our personalized, rigorous, and results-driven approach to clearing acne typically includes a combination of acne-targeting medical-grade skincare, hydrafacials, and chemical peels. In some cases we may later recommend lasers or microneedling.
Clearing acne and acne scars also requires patience. Addressing the deeper layers of skin can take some time. While you can expect to see great results after only 30 days, the entire process can take about three months. It is a process that takes time and daily commitment to the prescribed skincare regimen.
Illuminate aesthetician Jessica Torregroza often recommends the Purify with Precision Plus by VI Peels as an effective acne-fighting chemical peel. As a Certified VI Peel Specialist, Jessica will use the peel to fight active acne, but also to address acne scarring, stimulate collagen, kill acne-causing bacteria, and reduce acne-causing oil production. Acne-specific chemical peels are proven to brighten up any pigment left behind from acne scars and improve the tone, texture, and appearance of healthy skin.
