Facial Treatments

We specialize in acne, but if you have problem skin, we have you covered.

All treatments are safe for acne prone skin.

Meridian: 208-268-0388

Marin: 415-233-8777

Note: Expect to follow a twice-a-day home care routine to help prevent future acne and keep your pores very clear. By having an acne treatment every two to three weeks during the clearing process, we can extract acne lesions as they surface.

This will help you clear much faster. 

Our in-office acne treatments are completely individualized, but all include exfoliation and extraction. The type of exfoliation we do is dependent on your skin’s needs and tolerances. Extractions vary according to how many you need and your tolerance. Please note, under 15 years old, we provide consult and products only (feel free to call us if you have any questions).

Your treatment sessions modalities and times will vary, and will depend on current state of your skin that day (dryness, recent sun exposure and so on). We also may cancel your appointment when referring you to a dermatologist for anything that is not in our scope of practice. As your skin improves, we will make adjustments to your professional treatment as well as home care product usage.

(Returning Clients Only) A new acne client must receive a consultation prior to booking their first acne treatment.

Please note: Our Meridian location offers treatments, micro-needling, formulated for acne-prone skin, to diminish the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles and fine lines. Please inquire.

Excellent for acne prone skin (kills the P.acne bacteria), Rosacea sub-type 2 and aging skin by lightening sun spots, improving elasticity, thickening the epidermal layer of the skin, and reducing wrinkles. We’ve done our homework! We invested in high quality/technology medical grade LED machines. Our devices offers several treatment combinations to target each individual’s skin challenges.*

*Note: Not all LED (light therapy) devices are not created equal. The effectiveness of an LED light therapy device is dependent on a number of factors. One of the most important is the energy (Joules) the device puts out and how it’s been calibrated by the manufacturer. An inexpensive device will have a much smaller number of lights compared to a medical grade machine used in Doctor’s offices. In addition, the distance between the lights and your skin will have an impact on the unit’s effectiveness as well as a cooling system built into the panels. LED light therapy works by stimulating a positive change to your skin’s cells. As we age, mitosis (new skin cell reproduction) slows down. LED light therapy speeds up mitosis revealing newer, fresher, undamaged skin.
