Many acne treatments can treat both active acne and the scars that acne has left behind. Acne affects people of all age groups, and laser acne treatment, prescription medications, topical treatment, and others are available at Madison Medispa for everyone from teens through adults.

Whether you’re a teenager with active acne or an adult with scarring and discoloration from past chronic severe acne, we have a full array of skincare treatments that can help. 

Treatment Options for Acne

Many acne treatments can be combined with most medications, including antibiotics. However, if a patient is taking Accutane, it should be discontinued prior to acne laser treatments. Some of the most effective options for treating acne include pore detox treatments, chemical peels, Forever Clear Broadband Light (BBL), and HALO.

Pore Detox Treatments

Acne treatments that cleanse and detoxify the pores have been very successful in diminishing acne, blackheads, and congested pores. These treatments are available at Madison Medispa as one of our signature facial treatment options.

In addition to successfully reducing acne, pore detox treatments can also improve the skin and treat many additional conditions, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Oily skin
  • Dry, dehydrated skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Sensitive skin

Our signature facial treatments include services like cleanses, toning, exfoliation, extractions, serum application, and moisturization with SPF. Many patients combine these facial treatments with other services that we offer at Madison Medispa. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels improve acne, and they also provide other benefits, as well. They soften the appearance of fine lines on the skin’s surface and can smooth the texture of the skin and improve its tone. 

Our chemical peels vary in strength from mild to medium depth and use retinoids, blended trichloracetic acid (TCA), or modified and enhanced Jessner’s solution. The exact composition of each patient’s chemical peel depends on their unique needs and goals. 

Forever Clear BBL

Forever Clear BBL therapy is an effective non-invasive treatment for acne. This laser acne treatment treats the main source of the problem to clear up outbreaks without the patient having to use creams or medications. There is minimal downtime required for this treatment. 

Many patients have found significant improvement in their skin with this treatment. Forever Clear BBL uses yellow, blue, and infrared light energy to clear up acne as well as the damage to the skin that it’s caused. 

Broadband light is one powerful and effective technology that treats postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). This condition is characterized by brown and red areas that can remain even after acne has cleared up.

The light that is used in Forever Clear BBL therapy is the most powerful form of intense pulsed light (IPL) available, which is delivered deep into the skin to remove bacteria as it targets the sebaceous glands. As an added effect, the treatment is designed to stimulate the regeneration of skin cells, too.

The benefits of Forever Clear BBL include the following:

  • Pores that are less noticeable
  • More even skin tone
  • Reduction in number and severity of future outbreaks
  • Resolution of active acne

Most patients see improvement in their skin health after the first treatment. Treatment sessions last about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on each patient’s needs. Patients can usually resume their normal routine right after treatment sessions are done.

Sciton HALO

HALO is a skin resurfacing treatment that can be used to diminish scarring that has been left by severe acne. Sometimes HALO is even able to completely erase scarring. 

This laser acne treatment has provided excellent results with minimal downtime for patients. It’s the first and only hybrid laser resurfacing treatment that uses both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths of light simultaneously.

The strong synergistic effect produced by these two wavelengths provides a superior improvement in the following areas of concern: 

  • Acne scar treatment
  • Skin laxity
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines
  • Skin discoloration

HALO can also jump-start the production of new, healthy skin for patients in a short period of time. Patients who have deep sun damage and other dermal issues can enjoy a dramatic skin-tightening and skin resurfacing effect with HALO. 

The wavelengths remove the outer layer of skin and encourage the body’s own production of collagen on a deep level. Many find that after treatment, they experience “the HALO glow.” 

Impressive results can be achieved with just one HALO treatment, compared to the four or five treatments that are often needed with older, outdated treatment methods. 

Only a topical anesthetic is needed for HALO. Treatment sessions take between 30 minutes and two hours, depending on each patient’s needs.
