Acne Breakouts

Acne breakouts are a common skin condition caused by a combination of factors, including excess sebum production, clogged pores, and the p.acnes bacteria. Sebum is an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands, which can mix with dead skin cells and bacteria to clog pores. When pores become clogged, they can become inflamed and infected, resulting in pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. We offer chemical peels and facials to exfoliate the skin, unclog the pores, and reduce the severity and frequency of acne breakouts.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a type of skin resurfacing treatment that can be highly effective in treating acne. The treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layer of the skin to peel off. This process helps to unclog pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and promote the growth of new skin cells. Chemical peels can also reduce the production of sebum, which is a major contributor to acne breakouts. The chemical solution used in the treatment can vary in strength, with stronger solutions penetrating deeper into the skin.


Facials are another effective treatment for acne to reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and promote healthy skin. Medical-grade facials are tailored to each individual’s skin type and acne severity and involve a series of steps, such as cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and applying specialized products. We apply facials containing salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin and penetrates deep into the pores to clear out debris and oil. This treatment can regulate oil production and promote a healthy, balanced complexion, thus addressing the root causes of acne breakouts.

Acne Scarring

Acne breakouts can leave behind permanent scars, which occur when the skin’s collagen is damaged during the healing process. As we age, our skin produces less collagen, making acne scars appear more pronounced and take longer to heal. There are several types of acne scars, including ice pick scars, boxcar scars, and rolling scars, which can vary in shape and severity. At Willow Medical Aesthetics, we offer CO2 laser treatments to stimulate collagen production and heal acne scars, helping you achieve a smooth and even complexion.

Tetra CO2 Laser

Tetra CO2 laser is a highly effective treatment for acne scars that works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The laser creates tiny columns of thermal energy penetrating the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural healing response. This results in the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which help to smooth and tighten the skin. The laser also reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture, which are common concerns associated with acne scarring.
