Acne is a very common skin problem that most commonly occurs in adolescence but may continue into or even begin in adulthood. Acne shows up as outbreaks of bumps called pimples or zits that usually appear on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Acne can be a source of emotional distress, and severe cases can lead to permanent acne scars.Acne Treatment
A comprehensive array of treatments for acne are available at Phoenix Skin, including topical medications, oral medications and chemical peels. Most treatments for acne take time, often 6 to 8 weeks for improvement after treatment begins and in some cases, acne will get worse before it gets better. Ultimately, the treatment will heal existing lesions, stop new lesions from forming, and prevent acne scars.
We also offer the Rebalance treatment for patients who suffer from acne. Rebalance combines three treatments in one visit; a Microdermabrasion, Red and Blue Light Therapy and a Gentle Glycolic Peel.Microdermabrasion
A diamond-surfaced suction exfoliates the skin to gently remove the outermost layer of skin and excess oil which opens up the pores in order to prep them for the Red and Blue Light Therapy.Gentle Glycolic Peel
Gentle but powerful application of alpha-hydroxy acid to the skin that increases cell turnover and dissolves blackheads while minimizing breakouts.Red and Blue Light Therapy
Also known as photodynamic therapy (PDT) or LED light therapy, is very effective in treating acne. The blue light on the surface of the skin kills bacteria while the red light reduces inflammation and redness and heals the skin. Red and blue light therapy is painless, does not harm or burn the skin (because the lights are LED) and safe for all skin types.
Rebalance treatments are recommended twice per month: every two weeks for an average of ten to twelve weeks. Scheduled maintenance is recommended thereafter every two to three months to maintain your Rebalanced look.Acne Products

Over the counter retail products sold on TV and at drugstores cannot deliver quality, long-term results or be tailored to an individual’s need.
