Acne and Pores


ALA is a substance that occurs naturally in the body but when applied it works as a photosensitizing agent which helps the skin become more receptive to light.

Fraxel Laser

Fraxel laser treatment uses microscopic lasers that penetrate deep into your skin and help to trigger and speed up your body’s natural collagen production. The fraxel laser only treats a tiny section of tissue at a time which allows the skin to heal very quickly.

  • The laser works from the inside out to stimulate the growth of new and healthy skin cells.
  • Numbing cream is applied for about 45 minutes before the procedure and the procedure itself takes between 10-15 minutes.
  • Results are usually visible after the second session.
  • Only mild discomfort feeling
  • Works for acne scars and pore reduction


INFINI is a device that utilizes RF energy and micro-needling in order to penetrate multiple layers of the skin. As the needle penetrates the skin, RF is released inside the dermis, this generates heat which then makes collagen fibers shrink and tighten. INFINI is a non-invasive treatment that will help the body stimulate its own natural collagen production.

  • Numbing cream is applied and the process lasts just a few minutes.
  • Only mild discomfort feeling
  • Works for acne scarring, elasticity, wrinkles, pores

  • Works for acne, acne scars, wrinkles and pores


CO2 Laser (Smartxide)
