Acne Treatment

Clear, healthy skin provides confidence and promotes self-esteem. At The Skin Refinery, we provide innovative acne treatments promoting healthy skin and minimal medication targeting underlying issues. Our approach is to provide treatment that not only improves the appearance of blemish-prone skin but also provides nutrition and vitamins to the skin for glowing skin.


Acne is a very common inflammatory disorder of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It is often seen in adolescents and young adults when the body is going through hormonal changes. It can be influenced by genetics, diet, and environmental factors. There are four main contributing factors that lead to acne lesions, including: increased sebum (oil) production, inflammation, bacterial presence, and follicular hyperkeratinization.
Oftentimes, the typically prescribed medications cause inflammation and irritation due to the carrier these medications are in. We offer Environ skincare that provides the medication in a lipid form that is gentle on the skin. In addition to the ingredients in the products, they also provide a dose of Vitamin A, which helps normalize and regulate the cells. For more severe cases, we often prescribe a short-term antibiotic to help kick-start results. Combination treatment is often the best, and with topical skin care, Blemish Control Facials, and occasional prescriptions, we have great success in acne treatment.

Acne is caused by a combination of many different factors including hormones, genetics, and the overproduction of oil in the skin. Stress and certain medications can also trigger breakouts.

The best treatments for acne vary from person to person but generally include a combination of topical medications, such as retinoids or benzoyl peroxide, and oral medications, such as antibiotics.

While you can’t prevent acne completely, you can reduce your risk of breakouts by keeping your skin clean and avoiding touching your face. Eating a healthy diet and reducing stress can also help.

Yes, acne scars can be treated with a variety of treatments, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microneedling.
