Acne Treatments in Greater Vancouver

Reduce breakouts and manage your mild, moderate or severe acne for a clear, healthy, even toned complexion.

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, deep nodules and painful cysts. While acne is often associated with adolescents and teenagers, it affects people of all ages—with both men and women suffering adult-acne breakouts. Acne most often appears on the face, neck, chest and back and may be mild, moderate or severe.

Many factors contribute to acne, including hormone production, hormonal imbalances and a genetic predisposition. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands overproduce oil and mix with dead skin cells to clog the pores. Bacteria (P. Acnes) thrives in this environment; resulting in inflamed skin with active pustules and pimples. Your skin may be tender and sore with marked dehydration and flakiness.

At EverYoung we offer a broad range of acne and cyst treatments for optimal effectiveness including: SpectraPeel™ThermaScan LaserBLU-U® Light TherapyChemical Peels, Emergency Acne Treatment and Acne 911 Shot.

Acne is a very common skin condition caused by a build-up of sebum production under hormonal influence and plugged pores which create an ideal environment for P.acnes bacteria to multiply and leading to painful pimples. At EverYoung, our doctors are committed to scientifically-proven combination therapies to target the cause of acne for long-lasting results. This approach gives you smoother and glowing skin in weeks, instead of months and years as compared to conventional treatment. By quickly suppressing your acne medically, we can effectively prevent permanent acne scarring. A detailed skin examination will be conducted to tailor the best treatment for your need.

Is acne caused by too many hormones?

It the amount and sensitivity toward the androgen hormone that triggers the condition. Our doctors carry a detailed medical interview and prescribe suitable treatment to balance your hormones.

While there is a lack of evidence that any specific type of food causes acne; however, the lack of good nutrition such as antioxidants and free Fatty Acids particularly, Linoleic Acid will reduce the skin’s natural defense capability to fight against infection.
