Acne? We Can Help!

Did you know that more than 50 million young adults between the ages of 12 and 24 are affected by it each year? If not, then you should know that you're not alone and that there is a shining beacon of hope! Few Americans realize that at-home topical acne treatments such as face washes and clay masks aren't enough to clear up their skin.

What we provide is clinical and corrective skincare so that you can enjoy skin that's beautiful and clear. Before we decide if your face or body needs Acne Treatments, LED Phototherapy, or High Frequency Treatments, we will do a careful Baumann Skin Typing assessment and consultation! No matter how new you are to acne and beauty treatments, our processes are comfortable and done in a short amount of time so that you can be in and out quickly.
