Acne Management For Face & Body

Adult, or for that matter, teenage acne can be a very troubling and embarrassing condition that can affect an individual’s self-esteem. At Calvin Chan Aesthetic Clinic, we offer each individual a range of customized treatments, complete with home care to manage the progression of the problem, heal existing acne and diminish the risk of scarring. Depending on the type of problem being treated – ranging from mild to severe acne, and the predominance of comedones or inflammatory lesions – a treatment course and regime including those shown below will be tailored specifically for each patient. The treatments mentioned below can be done in combination with each other or other treatments for optimum results as recommended by Dr Chan.

MedLite® C6 laser for acne, enlarged pores & scarring

Laser treatments by the MedLite C6 can produce improvements in skin with mild to moderate scarring from acne by stimulating collagen production, the support structure of the skin. Many times MedLite procedures will be used in combination with other technologies such as Peels or Microdermabrasion treatments to effectively treat this condition. Multiple treatments would most likely be needed in order to create improvement of the affected areas. The delivery of thermal energy to the sebaceous gland also acts to partially “shrink” the gland, reducing sebum production and further acne outbreaks.
