Treat Existing Breakouts
& Prevent Future Ones

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It typically presents as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and, in some cases, more severe forms like cysts and nodules. The development of acne can be attributed to several factors, including the overproduction of sebum (skin’s natural oil), the accumulation of dead skin cells, and the presence of the P. acnes bacteria. These can lead to inflammation, swelling, and the appearance of acne.

Addressing acne can be challenging because it can stem from various factors, such as hormonal imbalances, genetics, dietary factors, and environmental influences. At ReJoyce Aesthetics & Wellness, we understand the complexities of acne. Our treatments not only target the visible symptoms but also delve deeper to address the root causes. Our comprehensive approach encompasses therapies to clear existing acne, prevent future breakouts, and promote overall skin health. With our care, you can achieve clearer, smoother, and healthier skin.

Topical Therapy

Topical therapy involves the application of medicated products onto the skin’s surface. These topical treatments target the various factors contributing to acne’s development. One common approach is the use of topical antibiotics like clindamycin or erythromycin, which combat the P. acnes bacteria. By reducing bacterial overgrowth, these antibiotics help alleviate inflammation and prevent new acne lesions from forming.

Additionally, topical retinoids, such as tretinoin, increase cell turnover and prevent dead skin cell accumulation within hair follicles. This process helps unclog pores and promotes the shedding of existing comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Topical therapies often include benzoyl peroxide, which possesses antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, further contributing to acne management.

Medical-Grade Skincare

Medical-grade skincare involves using specialized skincare products formulated with clinically proven ingredients to target specific skin concerns, including acne. These products are known for their higher potency and efficacy than over-the-counter counterparts. Medical-grade skincare products work through several mechanisms to address acne-related issues.

Medical-grade skincare products for acne may involve ingredients like salicylic acid and glycolic acid. These beta and alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate the skin’s surface, unclogging pores and preventing the buildup of dead skin cells. They also promote the turnover of skin cells, which helps fade acne scars and reveal healthier, clearer skin. Additionally, medical-grade products may contain retinoids that regulate cell turnover, reduce inflammation, and encourage collagen production, ultimately aiding in acne management.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve the application of chemical solutions to the skin’s surface to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. They work through controlled chemical reactions that help remove the top layer of damaged or dead skin cells, revealing smoother, healthier skin. Chemical peels treat various skin concerns, including acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. However, when it comes to acne, chemical peels may contain glycolic acid and salicylic acid.

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic acid and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) like salicylic acid penetrate the skin and break down the bonds holding dead skin cells together. This process unclogs pores and stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of acne scars. The depth and intensity can be adjusted based on your skin type.


Microneedling improves the skin’s texture and reduces the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections, including acne scars. It involves using a device equipped with fine, sterile needles that create thousands of tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin, two crucial proteins responsible for skin’s elasticity and structure.

When the tiny needles penetrate the skin, they create microchannels that trigger the body’s wound-healing response. This response includes the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers and increased blood flow to the treated area. As collagen and elastin production ramps up, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more even in texture. Over a few sessions, microneedling improves the appearance of acne scars and promotes overall skin rejuvenation.

Red/Blue Light Therapy

Red and blue light therapy, also known as phototherapy, utilizes specific wavelengths of light to address various skin concerns, including acne. This therapy works on the principle of utilizing light energy to target and mitigate the factors contributing to acne development.

Blue light therapy, with a wavelength typically around 405-420 nanometers, targets the P. acnes bacteria that play a role in acne formation. When exposed to blue light, these bacteria produce chemicals that react with the light, leading to the destruction of the bacteria and a reduction in inflammation. Meanwhile, red light therapy, with wavelengths of 630-660 nanometers, reduces inflammation and promotes skin healing. Red light stimulates collagen production and improves blood flow to repair damaged tissue and reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Acne FAQs

How can I prevent acne breakouts?

You can minimize acne breakouts by maintaining a consistent skincare routine, using non-comedogenic products, managing stress, and adopting a healthy diet. Our providers can offer recommendations to help you maintain acne-free skin.

How many sessions of red/blue light therapy are needed for results?

The number of sessions varies, but it’s recommended to undergo multiple treatments over several weeks for optimal results. Your provider will curate a personalized treatment plan.

Can I combine different acne treatments for better results?

Yes, our providers often combine treatments, such as topical therapy, chemical peels, and light therapy, to address multiple aspects of acne and acne scars. For example, topical therapy and blue light therapy may address active acne, and chemical peels may address scars.
