Acne treatments at Westside Laser & Light

in SW Calgary

At last, a permanent solution for acne.

Clear skin is possible for all types of acne with the most innovative acne solution to date.

Our new treatment targets the active acne to shrink or destroy the sebaceous gland permanently – killing that pimple forever.

New research shows that it is the same pimples occurring over and over again.

By treating these pimples individually, we can stop their function forever and, over time, prevent future recurrence of acne.

What is Acne?

Acne is a disorder of the oil-producing sebaceous glands which reside in the skin’s pores. Due to the anatomical defect of the gland, it can become clogged with oil and foster the ideal environment for acne bacteria to thrive and multiply. This leads to inflammation of the gland and this is what we see as acne.

Acne usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Depending on its severity, and if left untreated, acne can lead to scarring.

Treatments

Sylfirm X Acne Treatment uses RF micro needling to target the active acne directly. Specially designed acne tips use small electrodes to deliver Radio Frequency energy directly to the oil gland to destroy it or shrink it.

By treating the active acne individually, it is possible to achieve clear skin for all types of acne over just a few treatments.

Since not all of the oil glands will be active at one time, we expect 4-6 treatments about one month apart for a complete solution for acneic skin.

By treating only the active acne, we are careful to not treat the healthy sebaceous glands, which are essential to normal skin function.

How Much Does Acne Treatment Cost?

Sylfirm X acne treatment is $2200 for a series of 4 sessions.

Additional treatments may be purchased for $500 per session.

Stop the gland from functioning → stop acne forever

Specially designed acne tips use small electrodes to deliver Radio Frequency energy directly to the oil gland to destroy it or shrink it so that it stops functioning altogether.

By treating the active acne individually, it is possible to achieve clear skin for all types of acne over just a few treatments.

Since not all of the oil glands will be active at one time, we expect 4-6 treatments about one month apart for a complete solution for acne.

Types of Acne?

Non-inflammatory acne

Non-inflammatory acne includes blackheads and whiteheads. These normally don’t cause swelling. They also respond relatively well to over-the-counter (OTC) treatments.

Inflammatory acne

Pimples that are red and swollen are referred to as inflammatory acne.

Papules

Papules are hard, clogged pores that are tender to the touch. The skin around these pores is usually pink. Papules occur when the walls surrounding your pores break down from severe inflammation.

Pustules

Pustules can also form when the walls around the pores break down. Unlike papules, pustules are filled with pus. These bumps come out from the skin and are usually red. They often have yellow or whiteheads on top.

Nodules

Nodules occur when clogged, swollen pores endure further irritation and grow larger. Unlike pustules and papules, nodules are deeper underneath the skin. Because nodules are so deep within the skin, home treatments are usually ineffective.

Cysts

Cysts are the largest form of acne, and their formation usually results from a severe infection. This type of acne is also most likely to scar. These large red or white bumps are often painful to the touch. The clogs occur deep within the skin and are further below the surface than nodules.

What can I expect?

Following an initial assessment, Sylfirm X acne treatments can be done every 2-4 weeks.

Treatments are fast and usually less than 30 minutes. A topical numbing cream may be applied 30 minutes prior to your treatment.

Following treatment, the treated acne will be red and crusts will form as it heals(2-5 days). After-care includes moisturizer, SPF and sun avoidance.
