What is Acne treatment?
With an aesthetics team with more than 20 years of experience, Optima Medical Spa can customize acne treatments based on your specific needs. Acne commonly presents as whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, or cysts (alone or in clusters). Our board-certified physician, Dr. Abraham (Avi) Ishaaya, offers acne treatments for acne on the face, back, and torso.
Your acne can be caused by one factor or many. Clogged pores, dead skin cells, bacteria, hormones, food triggers, and more can cause acne to pop up as red, itchy, and inflamed skin. We use medical-grade acne products for all treatments. Plus, we provide a comprehensive acne kit for patients to use at home.

What to Expect During acne treatment
Optima Medical Spa offers many therapy options to control and maintain acne. Let's clear up your symptoms. For less severe cases of acne, prescription medications, such as topical solutions and creams that contain retinoids, salicylic acid, sulfur, and benzoyl peroxide, can help. There are also oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline, minocycline, or doxycycline that are helpful to use. Depending on what type of acne you have, we may suggest acne facials, chemical peels, radiofrequency microneedling, and/or extractions.

Laser acne treatments deep clean and eliminate the bacteria and dead skin cells on your skin. It can also help reduce inflammation and redness linked with acne. There are many opportunities for you to try to get your skin healthy and clear.
Acne treatment FAQs
Why does my acne get red and inflamed?
A "flare-up" of acne can happen for lots of different reasons, including hormonal changes. Also, certain drugs and medications (such as the birth control pill) may lead to acne, as well as stress and a poor diet. Once the precise cause of acne is diagnosed, a suitable treatment plan will be established.
Can you also help me with acne scars?
Acne scars can be very difficult to treat once the skin has been damaged. Don't lose hope. Once your acne infection has cleared up, you can take a more targeted approach to treat your scars. Dr. Ishaaya can make recommendations on how to rejuvenate your acne-scarred skin.
How do I take better care of my skin at home?
We have comprehensive acne kits for our patients. You can also ask questions or voice your concerns at your appointment on how to better care for your skin. There are medical-grade skin care products available that may also be beneficial to your acne-clearing routine at home.
