The ZO Acne Intervention Facial is specifically designed to treat acne. Every effective acne facial requires five steps: cleansing, exfoliation, medication, extractions, and sunscreen.
The ZO Acne Intervention Facial facial gently removes dead skin cells, without irritating skin, to minimize any downtime. Medical grade acne medication is then applied to the skin to kill the pimple-causing bacteria. Finally, extractions are done by a skilled aethetician or nurse as needed.
Laser Acne Treatment
Acne is caused by the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands (sebum) that is unable to exit the skin because a hair follicle is blocked causing ugly pimples. And, when the pimple ruptures (“pop”) it can then lead to permanent scarring.
We offer the latest technologies in laser treatments that can rapidly, painlessly and affordably eliminate acne breakouts. The laser is set to a specific wavelength that is very effective in killing the p-acnes bacteria, which is the main cause of acne. The laser also reduces the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, slowing the production of sebum or “oil”.
The laser can also be used to direct controlled pulses of specific light frequencies into the upper skin layer, to destroy acne scar tissue without damaging surrounding skin – permanently reducing or eliminating acne scars.
