Most of us will deal with acne at one point or another, particularly during adolescence. At the same time, certain factors such as diet, medications, and hormonal changes can both cause and worsen breakouts in people of all ages. This can lead to not only discomfort and potential scarring, but reduced self-esteem as well.
When looking at different products and treatments, it’s important to consider your skin type and lifestyle to find what’s best for your needs. For reducing the severity and duration of breakouts, Revive Medical Spa utilizes our highly effective AviClear light therapy for acne in Fairbanks.
