Adult acne treatment at Spruce
At our spa and body lab, we use Broadband Light Technology (BBLs) – an acne treatment that provides more advanced results for skin than ever before. BBLs are able to treat a wide range of cosmetic acne conditions for a smoother, more even complexion and healthy looking skin.
Spruce’s suggested adult acne treatment schedule:
- Four acne laser treatments spaced one week apart
- One acne laser treatment a month is recommended post-treatment series to maintain results
- Combine your adult acne therapy with a micro-zone flash exfoliation to further refine and decongest pores
- Continue to have acne-free skin with our selection of face washes for acne prone skin
We also recommend each patient chooses our acne clearing facial which kills the acne bacteria within the follicle. This treatment helps to heal existing acne and prevent further break out activity.
