If you have acne, it can be one of the most annoying types of skin problems. You can’t hide it effectively with make-up and its one of the first things people notice because it’s usually on your face. There are all types of acne, and none of them are pretty. Why do some of us have to suffer from this skin ailment?


Unfortunately, some of our skin is more prone to acne than others. Blocked follicles, hormones, and oil all cause blemishes on our faces, backs, and chests. Thankfully, there are things you can do to help achieve the clear skin you want. Laser Skin & Wellness uses a combination of treatments to get you the best results for your skin.

While acne is most associated with teen years, it is also common in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and even 50’s. It simply will plague some people for most of their adult life. The product MD Duality is a clinically proven acne medication with the added benefit of also containing anti-aging ingredients as well. It also will reduce redness and minimize acne scars while keeping current acne under control.

This product works great with all skin types from dry to oily. We love this product because it doesn’t dry the skin out like so many “teen-age” acne medications. This product is great for adult skin because it is tough on acne, but gentle on your skin.

Chemical peels are commonly used to help treat acne and are especially effective when used with an acne medication such as MD Duality. A chemical peel removes the very top layer of skin that alerts your skin cells to produce faster. The result is glowing new skin that prevents blockages that result in acne. A chemical peel will also make your skin smooth and reduce the appearance of scars and fine lines. With both of these treatments, results are seen after a few visits.

Knowledge is key in getting acne under control, and it’s important to know how diet and exercise affects your skin’s health. Knowing what foods trigger your breakouts and how exercise can improve your skin through circulation helps you reach your goal of clear skin. Our dedicated staff will discuss these strategies with you so you know which lifestyle choices will help your skin health the most.

Acne can lead to low self-esteem and unhappiness with your overall look. Some acne can also be uncomfortable or even painful. It’s time to get your acne under control. Even if you’ve never had problems in the past, acne can be a problem at any time in our adult life. Don’t be ashamed if it’s a problem that has just popped up in your 30’s or 40’s. Do something about it.
