How to Determine Which Acne Treatment is Right For You

Acne Clinic Edmonton
While acne is a common skin problem, every case is different. At our Edmonton skin clinic, we offer customized acne treatments, from chemical peels to blue light laser therapy, to give you the clear and beautiful complexion you desire. 

While you may feel extremely self-conscious about your acne, did you know that it is one of the most common skin conditions in Canada? For most patients, it will develop during the teenage years or in your early 20s. Some of the symptoms of acne include: 

  • Pimples, whiteheads or blackheads
  • Papules (raised lesions) 
  • Pustules (raised lesions with pus) 
  • Cysts (nodules filled with pus) 

Customized Treatment is Important 

Despite it being a common skin condition, no two cases of acne are the same. That’s why, at our Edmonton clinic, we offer fully personalized acne treatments based on many factors including your skin type, lifestyle, acne severity, and treatment history.

How to Know Which Acne Treatment is Right For You 

At Glo Skin and Med Spa, our skincare professionals work together with you to create the most effective acne treatment for your specific case. Whether you suffer from the occasional breakout, or you have a more serious case of acne, our team can get you on the path to clear and beautiful skin. 

1. Mild Acne Cases

If you suffer from a mild case of acne, then often good skincare and the use of topical medications such as azelaic acid, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid will be sufficient to keep your condition under control. 

These products work by: 

  • Removing excess oil and dead skin cells to unclog your pores
  • Killing bacteria in the clogged pores
  • Reducing any inflammation and skin redness 

2. Mild Acne Scars

If you have some scars from your mild case of acne, then your skin specialist may suggest opting for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion procedure. Not only will these treatments eliminate the scars, but they also stimulate the production of collagen, which can greatly improve the appearance of your skin. 



3. Medium Acne Cases

Treatment for moderate cases of acne also includes the use of the topical agents listed above. In addition, your acne specialist may prescribe oral medication for 3-6 months. Such medications can include: 

  • Antibiotics
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication 
  • Oral isotretinoin for more persistent cases 

4. Moderate Acne Scars 

Laser treatment is often best for eliminating moderate acne scars. However, it’s always best to consult a skincare specialist about which is the safest and best choice for your specific case. 


5. Severe Acne Cases

If you are suffering from a severe and persistent case of acne, then you must consult an acne specialist straight away. A combination of topical treatments and antibiotic tablets are the first step for clearing your skin, but for the best results, your dermatologist may also recommend: 

  • Blue light laser therapy 
  • Chemical peels 
  • Photodynamic therapy 

Say Goodbye to Severe Acne Scars

If your acne scars are making you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your skin, then there are certain treatments available that can clear up your complexion. This includes dermabrasion, the use of retinoic acids, or even hyaluronic fillers.

I came in to enquire about some skin imperfections and botox etc. The staff was especially sensitive to what I needed and complimented what I already had. I hope the staff excel in the areas of dematology/age tolerations in their career. They are a must with this area of beauty. Thanks for all of the valuable information.
