Hollywood Acne Peel

The Hollywood Acne Peel is a laser treatment that helps reduce the causes of acne to lead to cleared, more radiant looking skin. By unclogging pores and exfoliating the outer layer of skin, the sebum is reduced and the inflammatory acne condition is improved.  Added benefits include a more youthful glow and complexion!

When sebaceous glands are signaled by changing hormone levels, they produce sebum which often gets clogged in skin pores causing inflammation and red discoloration. The Hollywood Acne Peel helps unclog pores and exfoliate skin to reduce the sebum and inflammatory acne. During the Hollywood Acne Peel, a carbon lotion is applied to the skin like a mask. Once the mask is set, the laser is used to gently heat the lotion and remove the carbon layer along with a very fine layer of skin cells. This is a gentle process and usually requires multiple passes over the skin surface. This process helps exfoliate the skin to clear pores, reduce sebum and reveal a brighter complexion.

The patented Hollywood Acne Peel treatment can help address the causes of active acne. Causes such as hormonal influenced over-production of sebum in the sebaceous glands, clogged pores as well as hereditary and younger age (15-30) are big factors in predicting who may experience active acne. Lutronic, the creator of the Hollywood Acne Peel, holds the patent for curing inflammatory acne by applying a carbon lotion to a face covered with acne, irradiating the applied lotion with a laser pulse followed by another pulse to help exfoliate the outer layer of skin. This technique sterilizes the acne bacilli and opens the skin pores clogged with sebum to entirely treat the inflammatory acne.

This treatment is great for patients with active inflammatory acne. This treatment is safe for most skin types and tones. Schedule a consultation with one of our skin experts to see if this treatment is right for you!
