Las Vegas Acne Treatment

Don’t let acne define your appearance any longer

It may not be harmful to your physical health, but moderate to severe acne can be emotionally devastating. Although there is nothing you did to bring on the redness, pimples and indentations, others can perceive it as a negative reflection on your self-care. Even if your acne hasn’t been an issue since you went to prom, scars from the past can affect your appearance well into adulthood.

Treating acne with over-the-counter options can be frustrating and futile, as products never seem to live up to their promises. If you are tired of living with acne, professional acne treatments with an experienced medical skincare provider can offer real improvements. At Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas, we offer an extensive suite of acne treatments that can provide powerful, noticeable reduction in active acne or acne scars to patients of any age.

HydraFacial MD®

Most over-the-counter acne treatments fail to do much more than deliver a mild dose of medicated ointment to the top of the skin, which is not nearly enough to address acne at the deeper level. HydraFacial MD® is a multi-step, soothing facial treatment that exfoliates the skin, flushes out impurities, and infuses a custom-tailored serum to clear out congested skin and calm active acne.

IPL Photofacial

Did you know that light therapy can help treat acne? Our IPL Photofacial delivers intense pulses of light that heat the skin and prompt healthier skin cell growth. For the right patient, an IPL Photofacial can noticeably reduce the appearance of acne on the face or body. Learn more about IPL Photofacial»
