What Are the Causes of Acne?

There are many different causes of acne. One common cause is the overproduction of oil (sebum) from the sebaceous gland as dead skin cells become trapped in hair follicles. When dead skin cells become trapped, it leads to inflammation.

In addition to plugged follicles and overactive oil glands, here are other contributing factors that can result in breakouts:

  • Bacteria that live in the skin
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Generalized skin inflammation

Our Featured Acne Treatments

If you’re searching for effective acne treatment, you’ve likely come across popular options such as hormonal treatments, retinoids, or antibiotics. While some of these options can be effective for some people, others need a different approach to acne treatment.

Lasers such as BBL lasers and HERO lasers are commonly used to target pimples and provide an overall smoother complexion.

BBL® laser for acne
The BBL laser is a revolutionary piece of technology that is both effective and gentle in how it approaches your acne. It delivers light energy deep into your skin to reduce acne.

HERO® laser treatment
The pulsed light energy from HERO laser helps to destroy acne-causing bacteria that are on your skin’s surface and in the sebaceous gland.

Frequently Asked Questions About Acne Treatment

How much does acne treatment cost in Minneapolis?

It is difficult to put an exact price tag on how much you can expect to pay. Each patient has such unique needs; some might only need a new product and occasional treatment while others need a more intensive approach to their acne. Once we have a consultation, we’ll be better equipped to tell you an accurate price.

How long does recovery take after acne treatment?

The recovery process depends on what you need to get done. Patients who take advantage of BBL for acne, for example, will need minimal downtime and most recover within a week following the treatment. Others might need more intensive treatment and routine before their skin starts to clear.
