Acne is a very common skin problem that can be highly embarrassing and frustrating for those that suffer from it. It is caused when your skin’s pores become blocked by your skin’s natural oils, dirt, makeup or bacteria. The occasional pimple rarely requires medical treatment and will resolve on its own, but moderate to severe cases should be managed by a qualified professional to prevent long-term damage.
Fortunately, we have a number of effective solutions for treating and managing acne. Successful treatment of acne requires ongoing care and treatments must be tailored to suit each individual patient.
Teenagers are particularly prone to acne and often require specialized care. At Belcara Health, we have extensive experience with treating teen skin and offer a wide range of treatments designed to address their specific needs and concerns.

At Belcara Health, we take time to understand your and unique skin type before recommending a treatment type. We will work with you to design a customized treatment plan that will allow you to enjoy clear, healthy skin. Treatment options include:
Topical medical grade skincare products are often the first line of treatment for acne. Common topical solutions contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, retinoic acid (Retin-A), and resorcinol creams or gels. We can recommend the best options for you, based on your skin condition and medical history.
Professional, customized facials will help to nourish and repair your skin. Drainage and extractions will remove any bacteria, thoroughly cleanse, hydrate and nourish your skin to repair and restore a healthy appearance.
IPL treatments will help repair your skin quickly. Energy from the laser kills the bacteria deep in your skin and prompts your body natural healing response, which then reduces your acnes and improves your skin’s tone and texture. It can also reduce the appearance of discoloration and scarring caused by acne.
Medical Grade Chemical Peels*
Chemical peels use an acidic solution to peel away the most superficial, dead, dull layers of skin, unclogging pores and reducing surface acne. The peel works by forcing cellular turnover, revealing new skin cells that have improved tone and texture. Peels come in a variety of strengths, so we will help you select the one most appropriate for your skin’s condition.
