Acne and Acne Scarring
Acne is caused by two main problems: overactive oil glands, and overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria
Effective treatment, therefore, must address both problems: target oil glands to reduce sebum production, and kill bacteria.
BLU-U Light Therapy and The Acne Bundle
BLU-U offers effective, non-invasive and pain-free blue light treatment for moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris. Narrow band blue light causes a photodynamic effect within the pilosebaceous gland that kills P. acnes, the bacteria primarily responsible for acne. When used in a continuous series of brief (approximately 20 minutes) sessions, it provides a simple, non-invasive treatment regimen. BLU-U treatments can be a primary treatment, an alternative to pharmaceuticals and topicals, or an adjunct to skin care programs. BLU-U is performed 1-2 times a week.
The De Pieri Clinic Acne bundle elevates the success of your light therapy treatment. We incorporate into your program a gentle skin exfoliation and salicylic chemical peel, which specifically fights acne-causing bacteria.
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can help to clear pores of oil and impurities, and can also have a regenerative effect on the skin.
Finally, our line of medical-grade skincare is tailored specifically to your needs by our doctor and skincare technicians. Our patients have enjoyed dramatic results using these products.
Textural acne scars can be softened using a CO2 fractional laser, microdermabrasion and a newer technique called
Pigmentation can be improved using laser treatments, and our pigment-specific medical skincare.
A complimentary consultation with Dr. De Pieri is the best way to determine which treatment will best tackle your acne and get you on track to beautiful skin!
