Acne is the most common skin care problem seen by doctors. It occurs when pores become clogged by a combination of an oily substance produced by the skin called sebum, dirt, and dead skin cells.
Many people suffer from acne and are very disappointed from little improvements offered by their therapists. Effective treatments are now available and they make a huge difference in quality of life of people with moderate and severe acne.
MD Spa offers the following procedures for acne treatments:
Acne facials - First line of defense
BLU-U Therapy - An advanced treatment for managing acne. It is recommended as an alternative to or in combination with antibiotics or topical treatments. BLU-U® selectively targets and destroys acne-causing bacteria (P. Acnes). Treatments are safe and comfortable, managing acne in teenagers and adults.
Thermage® skin tightening - Shrink the sebaceous glands and slow down their production of skin oil
The combination therapy for each patient will be designed by our Physician during the consultation. Improved acne means healthier skin, better smile and above all, less scars.

Don’t pop! Picking and squeezing leads to more bacteria being distributed and more acne.
Don’t stress out! Stress can indirectly worsen acne by affecting your hormones.
Don’t feel alone. Nearly everyone in the world gets pimples.
Don’t scrub too much! It won’t work and can irritate your skin and aggravate your acne.
Do wash your face! ONCE or twice daily with proper acne washes to help keep acne at bay.
Do apply sunscreen! Skin is much more sensitive to UV rays when you use acne products
Do use oil-free makeup. Look for noncomedogenic products – they don’t contain ingredients that clog pores.
Don’t wear makeup! Take a break to let your skin breathe and heal (at least once a week!)
Do wash your pillow case and sheets often. They absorb oil and reapply the dirt and oil on your skin.
Do wash your make-up brushes with antimicrobial soap. Makeup applicators can store bacteria.
