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. 


Acne Scars
Textural acne scars can be softened using a CO2 fractional laser, microdermabrasion and a newer technique called carbossitherapy, which is designed to break down scar tissue, improve blood flow and oxygen levels in the skin, and promote healing. 


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!
