What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition which occurs on the face when hair follicles in the skin become clogged by a combination of sebum – an oily substance produced by the oil glands – dirt, and dead skin cells. Different types of acne can include blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts. It usually appears on the face and neck but it can also affect shoulders, back, and arms. Usually, acne starts in the teenage years as hormonal changes cause the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. It can continue into adulthood with stress, monthly hormonal changes, certain medications or the use of oil-based products all contributing to breakouts.

Acne is not caused by poor hygiene or by eating chocolate or greasy foods, but genetics do play a role, so if either of your parents had acne chances are you will too. Sometimes acne can clear up on its own, but without treatment it can become severe and lead to permanent scarring so it’s best to get it under control early.


Types of acne pimpes


A comedo, or basic acne lesion, is a hair follicle that has become plugged with oil and dead skin cells.


Blackheads are comedones that are open at the skin’s surface. They are also filled with excess oil and dead skin cells.


Comedones that stay closed up at the surface of the skin are referred to as whiteheads. The built-up oil and skin cells then prevent a hair follicle from opening.


Papules are comedones that have become inflamed. They create small red or pink bumps on the skin. Having a significant number of papules may indicate moderate to severe acne.


Pustules are really just another kind of inflamed pimple. Resembling a whitehead, with a red ring around it, the bump is typically filled with white or yellow pus.

Preparing for acne treatment

The Acne Treatment essentially, a deep cleanse, exfoliation and medical extractions. Before prescribing acne treatment, several factors need to be addressed, including the severity of the acne, types of lesions present, co-existing conditions, as well as the patient’s age, skin type, lifestyle and motivation. With many factors affecting skin health and a multitude of treatment options available, VS MedSpa acne clinic in Toronto will create an individual treatment plan depending on your type of acne. Our medical aesthetician will analyze your skin and assist you on your path to a radiant, healthy complexion.

Combined VS MedSpa Special Strength Treatment

Mesotherapy is a highly effective solution to treat non-inflammatory and mild inflammatory ACNE.
Many scientific studies have shown that a combined treatment for acne usually produces better results than a single therapy approach. Innoaesthetics is therefore offering aesthetic professionals a therapeutic system especially designed to effectively control sebum secretion as well as to normalize the keratinization process. This contributes to a reduction in comedogenic lesions and inflammation causing factors, thus enabling optimal restructuring of the skin, which prevents subsequent scarring.

Treatment steps:
1️⃣ Cleanse. Applying Deep Cleanser.
2️⃣ Skin Peel. Applying three layers of Skin Recovery.
3️⃣ Neutralizing. Applying Post Peel Neutralizing Spray.
4️⃣ Infusion of Recovery ID – Effective Solution for Acne Treatment.
5️⃣ Applying Collagen Hydrating & Soothing Mask.



IPL stands for intense pulsed light.  If you’ve got vascular acne scars, or those red or pink marks commonly found on fairer skin tones, IPL Photofacial is the treatment for you. It’s very effective at targeting the pigmented cells left behind after acne lesions disappear. IPL Photofacial Acne Treatment enhances skin tone and reduce imperfections caused by acne and scarring. The procedure uses superficial wavelengths to kill bacteria, stimulate new cell turnover, and reduce redness while promoting the sloughing of dead skin cells. Patients report a rejuvenated and fresh look and feel to their skin with a significant reduction in discolourations, breakouts and scarring.

Microneedling, also known as collagen-induction therapy, is a semi-invasive procedure that has been used effectively for decades. This treatment can help treat acne, acne marks, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne, rosacea, and pore size. Microneedling can be uncomfortable, but it is not painful. The sensation is similar to a quick sting or small bug bite. A topical numbing cream can be applied to the skin to ease discomfort. Hyaluronic acid serum may also be applied to help the microneedling device glide over the skin. A typical microneedling session lasts approximately 60 minutes.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical exfoliation acne treatment that uses high quality corundum crystals to remove dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and to stimulate healthy cell turnover. In general, microdermabrasion improves minor textural issues and overall skin tone and can help in the treatment and reduction of acne as well as the overall improvement of scarring, leaving dull skin looking and feeling completely renewed.

Pixel® Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is one of revolutionary FDA-approved fractional laser treatments that can smooth out acne scars, clear years of sun damage, such as age spots, shrink the appearance of pores, reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Pixel laser resurfacing, also known as fractional laser, uses the science behind micro thermal lasers that uses small pulses of intense heat to target multiple very-small areas of the skin and cause tiny fractures or ruptures below the skin’s surface. The surrounding skin goes into recovery mode and rapidly creates new collagen the heal the damaged skin, thereby smoothing the overall appearance of the skin, improve tone and texture, reduce wrinkles and UV damage, and correct pigment issues.

A chemical peel treatment can be used for acne prone skin on both face and body to improve skin tone and texture. Indeed, skin peel is a highly-effective treatment for acne and scarring. By removing the surface layer, we allow the skin to regenerate. Chemical peels are not recommended for patients currently experiencing high to severe breakouts. A chemical peel treatment goes deeper into the layers of the skin than a mechanical exfoliation such as microdermabrasion and may require some recovery time after the session. Peels come in a variety of strengths for different skin concerns, and can be tailored to your lifestyle and overall facial needs.
