Acne is a bothersome, chronic condition that often leads to frustration, low self-esteem, and can even interfere with social activities. The stress of having acne can exacerbate the condition causing even more breakouts. There are many causes of acne and it affects adults as well as teens. With specially formulated products and medical advancements, acne is treatable.

Regardless of your history and current skincare regimen, our products can help.

These three products synergistically work together to provide optimum results. For ingredient information, please see www.skinmedica.com. We also offer a comprehensive peel system which consists of three different chemical peels by SkinMedica™ to help combat acne. Call 651-388-9855 for pricing.
- SkinMedica® Acne System
- Sunscreen (recommended at time of consultation)
For the special needs of acneic skin using our medical-grade products, this facial will treat and care for breakouts, oiliness, and sensitivity. A purifying mask or clarifying mask will be applied to help purge the skin of debris as well as time devoted to extractions. Allow our Esthetician to educate you about how to care for your unique skin concerns during this specialized treatment. A maintenance program and makeup consultation for acneic skin will be recommended at this time. A light massage of the shoulders, arms and hands is included (60 minutes).
Laser for Active Acne
The Nd: YAG laser can treat active acne by penetrating the skin at a deep level, providing an antiseptic quality that no product can match. One treatment is often enough and the results are long lasting.
Downtime: Varies, but you can expect to go back to work immediately after treatment.
Laser for Acne Scarring
Our erbuim laser can dramatically and significantly minimize the appearance of acne scarring, including the deep “pock” or “ice pick” marks. Using our precision laser, the top layers of skin are removed, leaving smoother, tighter skin on the surface after a period of healing.
Downtime: Varies based upon the depth of scarring.
Additional Acne Package option:
Includes Acne Facial, SkinMedica Acne System, Clarisonic
Treatment for Rosacea is often ineffective. The constant redness, worsened by multiple factors such as hot drinks, exercise, alcohol, wind or sun, increases the potential to develop overgrowth or thickening of the skin on the nose and cheeks (also called rhinophyma). The exact cause of this frustrating condition is unknown and is often treated with antibiotics and avoidance of aggravating factors. Often, such measures are not enough and many times don’t heal the already damaged skin.
Our approach, here at Refined Skin Medi-Spa, is to start with a consultation during which we analyze your skin using our Visia Complexion Analysis to identify the problem areas and determine the extent of the condition. We will develop an individualized plan to treat the condition and help repair the damage. This often will include a combination of the following:
- Effective non-abrasive cleansing of the skin with SkinMedica products and our Clarisonic skincare brush
- SkinMedica’s Redness Relief CalmPlex™ and TNS Essential Serum which contains the exclusive Tissue Nutrient Solution as well as anti-oxidants and multiple other products, which not only improve the appearance of the skin, but also heal the damaged tissues
- Fotona Dualis Nd:YAG Laser treatments, which treat the abnormal veins and stimulate collagen growth, thus significantly decreasing the redness and improving the texture and tone of the skin
- Non-aggravating moisturizers and quality mineral make up to decrease the appearance of red areas
- Fotona Fidelis Erbium:YAG Laser Peel treatments are used after the condition is stabilized so that the damaged, thickened tissue is removed, allowing for new, healthy tissue to grow
