Acne vulgaris, known simply as acne, is among the most common skin diseases, especially during adolescence. Acne can take many different forms: blackheads or whiteheads, pimples and pustules, or scaly red areas, all varying in size, shape, number and concentration.
Acne may appear in outbreaks of differing severity for different lengths of time, and may sometimes result in scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Although hormones are often somewhat responsible, such is the case with adolescents, stress levels, bacteria, genetic factors and diet may also play a role.
Acne scarring is the unfortunate side effect of acne, many who have experienced cystic acne in their lives are often left with scars. At GMA, we offer various treatments to help treat and reduce the appearance of acne scarring, including Infini RF Microneedling, Clear + Brilliant, PRP treatments, and GMA Bloody Facial.

Yellowbeam is proven effective when it comes to reducing and controlling acne. The laser energy penetrates deep enough into the skin to reach the sebaceous gland follicles. The porphyrin-forming bacteria and fungi considered to be local causes of acne are heated and destroyed in this procedure. The pustules begin to clear and skin condition will improve after a series of treatments. Please note that depending on the patient, we may need to combine Yellowbeam with other in-clinic treatments to attain the most ideal outcomes.
The first step to treating acne is to meet with one of our skin experts to complete a comprehensive skin assessment and consultation, after which, we will build you a customized program to meet your skin needs.
