When it comes to Acne, the struggle is real! It can often feel like a never-ending cycle that challenges us daily! Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States affecting 60 million Americans regardless of age, race or gender. Even skin care professionals struggle with controlling this condition from their clients on a day to day basis. The impact of acne can trigger lifelong insecurities affecting our self-esteem and confidence (Sigh)… But wait, we have good news. There are treatments out there that can unlock a number of life-changing results and our experts know exactly what it takes to get you there 

Defining Acne:

Acne can present itself in many forms and varies in severity. It can be triggered by intrinsic and extrinsic factors such as diet, hormones, stress, and pollution. Acne is defined as a localized inflammation of the skin as a result of overactivity of the sebaceous glands (oil glands) at the base of specialized hair follicles. In other words, hair follicles get clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria resulting in acne lesions or pimples. Clogged pores can appear as blackheads or whiteheads which often become swollen, tender inflammations (pimples) or deeper nodules (like cystic acne) that can turn painful, inflamed and infected. If left untreated, acne can lead to other undesirable conditions such as hyperpigmentation and permanent scarring.


This Powerful Laser is a Game Changer:

There are several treatment modalities out there that are critical to the treatment of acne. Revolutionary technology such as Aesthetic Lasers are shaping the industry with their incredible healing abilities. A prominent laser that has been featured all over the world and media is the NeoClear by Aerolase. This powerful device is the gold-standard for providing patients with a safe, gentle and clinically proven treatment that addresses all forms of acne year-round no matter what skin color you are. The NeoClear shuts down overactive sebaceous glands that produce excess oil while eliminating inflammation, redness, and the p. acnes bacteria. Treatment sessions are performed in 30 minutes or less making it a convenience to students, athletes, and full-time working adults. Most patients undergo a series of NeoClear treatments with each treatment further improving the appearance of the skin. Many patients prefer to combine laser with results-driven medical grade facials such as the Microdermabrasion to further exfoliate dead skin cells and open up clogged pores.


Invest In The Right Products:

Between spa visits, practicing healthy skincare at home with a topical regimen is critical to the treatment of acne. Many of you may not know that our doctor, Lisa Espinoza, MD, struggled with acne as a teen into her adult years. Her experience with this debilitating condition influenced the La Chele brand and helped mold this skincare practice into what it is today, a powerhouse of results-driven technology. Dr. Espinoza even formulated a full line of private label products with the active ingredients specifically designed for treating Acne. We have all at one point or another fallen victim of purchasing products from the drug store that look shiny and promise “rapid” results. But are these products results driven with the right active ingredients? Or is it all fluff?  An easy grab and go product that often fly off the shelves are the private label Acne Correction Pads with Salicylic Acid 2%. These medicated wipes work wonders after a sweaty workout, soccer game or long commute home from the office. One swipe is all you need to soothe acne-prone inflamed skin while reducing redness and calming irritation.
