A New Year, A New You: Discover A Better Acne Treatment

Acne & Acne Treatments

Acne may be regarded as a common skin disorder, but when you find yourself suffering from large zits, deep pimples, and stubborn cysts, you might feel like you’re the only one who has been suffering.  That’s why it’s critical to understand why acne happens, how it starts, and some of the powerful treatments that can be utilized to stop it at the source.

Acne is primarily caused by bacteria.  When bacteria invades our pores, our immune systems immediately attack the invaders, which produces the pus and inflammation that’s a common marker of acne.  These bacteria can often be caused by dirt, environmental stresses, or even just excessive oil production within your skin glands.

That’s why the best acne treatments specialize in killing bacteria at the source.  At A Beautiful You Medical Spa – located in Arkansas and Memphis, Tennessee – we provide our clients with acne treatments that effectively eliminate bacteria and reduce the appearance of scars from past breakouts.  These treatments include the following:

Levulan Technology:  Created by DUSA Pharmaceuticals, this unique treatment utilizes powerful photodynamic therapy to heal skin lesions and kill bacteria upon contact.  This blue-light therapy is a popular choice for clients who have suffered from bad breakouts in the past, and wish to reduce the look of scars and acne at the same time.  A topical solution will be applied to the treatment area before the blue-light therapy process, which helps the energy better penetrate the skin and kill bacteria.

Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. Systems: These dermatological products contain a powerful combination of antibiotics and 5% benzoyl peroxide, which is one of the most effective medications for the treatment of acne.  The Obagi CLENZIderm line contains lotions, cleansers, and treatments that have been proven to reduce the appearance of acne, especially when used in conjunction with other A Beautiful You Medical Spa acne treatments.

Harmony XL Laser Treatment: This unique laser treatment has been shown to kill off acne-causing bacteria three times faster than traditional topical lotions and cleansers.  What’s more, this laser treatment is ideal for producing a smooth appearance, which can reduce the look and feel of acne scars and lesions.

Here at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, we’re happy to announce that we’re currently offering a 50% off all packages special.  You can reserve your specific acne treatment package by visiting one of our two locations: Memphis, TN (serving Germantown and Bartlett, TN), and AR (serving Hot Springs, Sheridan & Conway).
