Acne Treatments

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. It typically appears on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. The main factors leading to acne include excess oil production, clogged hair follicles, bacteria, hormones, and genetics.


Renew MedSpa has the ultimate treatment combination to wipe out your face and/or body acne.
This treatment combo clears up existing acne, reduces breakouts, and gives you the clear skin you’ve always dreamed of by combining our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and VI Peel chemical peel treatments. This combination treatment dries up acne, prevents future breakouts, builds collagen, and improves your skin tone and texture, leaving you with a clear and bright complexion.

How IPL treats acne

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is safe for Fitzpatrick skin types 1-3 and treats acne. Here’s how it works:

  • Kills acne-causing bacteria: IPL emits high-intensity light pulses that penetrate the skin and target the bacteria responsible for acne, particularly Propionibacterium acnes. This bacterium thrives in clogged pores and contributes to inflammation and breakouts. IPL therapy destroys these bacteria, reducing acne flare-ups.
  • Reduces sebum production: IPL therapy targets the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for producing sebum (oil). By heating the glands, IPL helps regulate sebum production, thereby reducing the amount of oil present on the skin’s surface. This decrease in oil can prevent pore blockages and subsequent acne breakouts.
  • Calming inflammation: IPL emits wavelengths of light that have anti-inflammatory properties. By targeting inflamed areas of the skin, IPL therapy can help reduce redness, swelling, and discomfort associated with inflammatory acne lesions.
  • Improving skin texture and tone: In addition to targeting active acne, IPL therapy can also improve the overall appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This can help fade acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture, resulting in smoother and more even-toned skin.
  • Minimizing pore size: IPL therapy helps shrink enlarged pores by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. Smaller pores are less likely to become clogged with debris and oil, reducing the risk of acne breakouts.

How VI Peel chemical peel treats acne

VI Peel is a type of chemical peel that is safe for all skin types and formulated to improve various skin conditions, including acne. Here’s how it helps with acne:

  • Exfoliation: VI Peel contains a blend of ingredients including salicylic acid, TCA (trichloroacetic acid), and other peeling agents. These ingredients work together to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, excess oil, and other debris that can clog pores and contribute to acne.
  • Unclogs pores: Salicylic acid, one of the key ingredients in VI Peel, is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) known for its ability to penetrate deep into the pores. It helps to dissolve the buildup of sebum (oil) and dead skin cells within the pores, effectively unclogging them and preventing future breakouts.
  • Reduces inflammation: VI Peel also contains ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties, such as vitamin C and retinoids. These ingredients help calm inflammation associated with acne and reduces redness and swelling.
  • Promotes skin renewal: The chemical peel process stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen production and skin renewal. This can help improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, reducing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation left behind by previous breakouts.
  • Targets acne at different levels: VI Peel works on multiple levels of the skin, addressing both active acne lesions and underlying issues such as excess oil production and pore congestion. This comprehensive approach can result in clearer, smoother, and more radiant skin over time.
