How is acne treated at Clarité?

We treat acne for all ages. After an assessment and discussion about your goals, an individual acne treatment plan is created for you. Everyone's skin reacts differently to various acne treatments. Lighter skin reacts differently than darker pigmented skin and this must be taken into account. Acne treatments can include prescription creams, tablets, cosmeceuticals, chemical peels, acne facials, microneedling, microdermabrasion and/or IPL light therapy. Together, we will develop an acne treatment plan that's right for you.
