Acne is an age-old problem striking in adolescence and for many, continuing into adulthood. Diagnosis and treatment options date back to early Greek and Egyptian times. For our skin care staff at PSC Aesthetics, it’s one of the things we treat quite often.
Thankfully, treatment has come a long way since those early days. For the best results, we often use treatments and products in combination. Here are our favorite life-changing treatment options.
HydraFacial MD® Elite
This 30-minute treatment with no downtime, cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin. It provides gentle exfoliation and resurfacing and removes debris from your pores while nourishing the skin. Finally, it saturates your skin with antioxidants and peptides for a beautiful glow.
The acne may be gone, but scars can remain, causing lower self-confidence. We treat these scars with this microneedling device to improve the appearance of facial acne scars.
Forever Clear BBL™
This cutting edge acne treatment destroys acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores. BBL delivers light energy to reduce inflammation and stimulate and regenerate your skin cells leaving you with healthier, radiant skin.
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ System
This complete acne treatment is perfect for treating acne and includes cleanser, toner, and acne lotion. It’s our go-to in the fight against acne.
iS Clinical® Products
We also use is Clinical products including the Pro-Heal Serum®. It improves the appearance of compromised, blemish-prone skin. In addition, it can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Real Patients. Real Results.
Our eighteen-year-old patient, Demi, says her treatments at PSC Aesthetics at the Plastic Surgery Center have changed her life forever.
Tell us about your struggles with acne:
Demi: It started when I was 13, and at first, I didn’t want to do anything, but finally I agreed to go to a salon. They did some extractions, and my skin started to get better. After the salon closed, we discovered the Plastic Surgery Center. On our first visit, my mom and I both had a HydraFacial. This treatment changed my life forever. The medical aesthetician then created a plan for me that has made all the difference.
Explain your course of treatment over the last few years:
Demi: At first, I had a HydraFacial every month along with the PCASkin Oxygenating Trio to really clear out my skin. I started using CLENZIderm along with the iSClinical Serum and moisturizer. I also had several SkinPen® treatments to get rid of my scarring. Next, we added Skin Accumax vitamins. In addition to acne, enlarged pores, and blackheads on my face, I also struggled with back and chest acne because I work out all the time. The Skin Accumax completely changed my skin, and breakouts are basically non-existent. Currently, I have a HydraFacial and dermaplane every two months (each time my skin is less and less congested), use the skin care products, and take the vitamins. My skin looks great!
How do you feel now?
Demi: I am so grateful for the office and the care they have given and continue to give me. I have more self-esteem, and my life has changed for the better.
Do you have advice for people struggling with acne?
Demi: If you have the opportunity to get some help, reach out for it. It will boost your confidence. Getting acne treatments is the best way to fix your skin. It will change your life like it did mine. I am a people person, and it can be hard to feel confident in today’s society. Fixing my acne has helped me because when I feel confident, I am able to better interact with people.
What are your plans for the future?
Demi: I love to help others and because of my struggles with acne, I want to pay it forward. I have had such a great experience working with my medical aesthetician that I have decided to pursue this as my career. I begin school in the fall, and I can’t wait to help other people feel more confident and have great looking skin!
You deserve expert guidance and exceptional results.
