Helping you feel
more confident in
For many of us, acne is something that makes you feel self-conscious of your skin. While it definitely has an emotional effect, active acne can feel just plain painful. What’s even more frustrating is the scars it can leave behind.
Our skin professionals have multiple options for improving acne or acne scars to help you feel great in your skin from our personalized treatments!
Causes of Acne & Acne Scars
The root causes of acne are difficult to diagnose. Factors like genetics, diet, hormones, medications, and many other things can cause acne. In general, it’s important to understand that acne is inflammation from bacteria in the skin.
This is what causes redness, pain in the area, and overall irritation. Our acne treatments aim to treat this inflammation at the source.
If you’ve suffered from acne for many years or you’ve had multiple, deep breakouts, you may have some acne scars. Acne scars can vary in their depth, texture, and prevalence in the skin. How well your skin healed itself once the inflammation went away is what causes acne scars. Manual picking, abnormal healing, and other factors can lead to scarring.
The goal for improving acne scars is triggering your skin’s natural healing process.
We have several acne scar and acne treatments in LaSalle and Ottawa at LIV Wellness Lounge!
HydraFacial is a 3-step, medical-grade facial that gently exfoliates away dead skin cells and suctions out impurities in the skin, making it a perfect acne treatment.
High-quality, professional skincare products are the key to transforming your skin with your at-home routine. We will work with you to create a custom acne-clearing skincare plan using Skinbetter Science® products.
If your skin is more on the sensitive side, a chemical peel may be the better exfoliation option for you, since it’s less physically abrasive than dermaplaning. Chemical peels rely on chemical exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells and promote new ones to form.
Our most aggressive and transformative treatment for acne scars is microneedling with SkinPen. Microneedling uses tiny micro-needles to create controlled injury in the skin, causing your skin’s natural healing process to start. This promotes collagen production and regeneration from within.
BBL uses BroadBand Light to improve many different skin concerns using multiple settings. We offer the latest advancement in BBL technology with HERO (High Energy Rapid Output), which allows us to treat larger areas with greater comfort. BBL can improve acne with a specific Smart Filter.
For acne or traumatic scar improvement, we are proud to offer Halo laser, the world’s first Hybrid Fractional laser for effective laser resurfacing with little downtime. Halo stimulates cell regeneration and collagen production to smooth the surface of your skin from within.
