Clear acne with 5 dermatologist approved steps.

Drug-free solutions for acne-prone skin.

Anyone who has struggled to maintain clear skin can attest to how frustrating it can be to find the right balance for their skin. For patients in Dundas, Hamilton, Ancaster, Waterdown, Brantford and Burlington, a visit to our clinic will take the guesswork out of managing their beauty routine, paving the way towards clear skin.

In a time of increased antibiotic resistance, drug-free acne solutions provide a much-needed alternative to topical and oral medication. In this post, we are sharing our tried and true 5 step approach to managing and clearing acne with in-office and at-home treatments:

Alyria Acne Kit | Alyria is a Canadian-made medical-grade skincare line that is available exclusively in physician’s offices. The products in this kit contain therapeutic concentrations of active ingredients to manage and correct blemish-prone skin. We love this acne kit, as it includes everything our patients need to keep their skin clean, exfoliated and hydrated. Priced at just $99, we can’t recommend this kit enough to patients who are seeking a clear start for their skin.
Clarisonic® Cleansing Brush | Using this sonic-cleansing brush nightly enhances skin cleansing eleven-fold when compared to hand washing. The feedback from our patients who have adopted this practice is that they love how clean and refreshed their skin feels. The cleaner the skin, the clearer it will be, which is why this step is so important for patients who suffer from acne.
glo minerals | We highly recommend our patients to switch their makeup routine to a medical-grade mineral cosmetic. glo minerals provides exceptional coverage without exposing the skin to occlusive or irritating ingredients. These mineral cosmetic formulations contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients, the benefits of which make glo minerals more than just a way to perfect one’s look.

Professional Methods

In-office treatments like chemical peels and SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion™ microdermabrasion are the first steps we recommend to begin an acne-clearing regimen. These professional-grade exfoliation treatments remove the dead skin cells that contribute to the formation of acne lesions.
We recommend following up these non-invasive resurfacing treatments with a series of 6 Isolaz® treatments. This specialized technology uses light therapy to kill acne bacteria, while a suction action removes clogging skin cells and sebum from the pores. We love Isolaz® for the comfortable, gentle and efficient way it clears acne.

Seeking professional help will lessen the frustration and potential damage to self-esteem that acne poses.
