Acne Treatments: Solutions for Clear and Healthy-looking Skin
Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages and can be frustrating to deal with. Whether you have occasional breakouts or chronic acne, there are solutions available to help you achieve clear and healthy-looking skin. At Cornerstone Aesthetics, we offer a range of effective acne treatments designed to treat the underlying causes of acne and prevent future breakouts.
What Causes Acne?
Acne occurs when the hair follicles on the skin become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to inflammation and the formation of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Genetics, hormonal imbalances, stress, and certain medications can contribute to the development of acne.
Effective Acne Treatments
At Cornerstone Aesthetics, we offer a range of acne treatments tailored to your specific needs, including:
Medical-grade topical treatments
Our medical-grade topical treatments contain active ingredients that penetrate deep into the pores to treat acne at its source. These topical treatments work by reducing inflammation and regulating oil production, leading to clearer and healthier-looking skin.
Chemical peels are a non-invasive treatment that can help to reduce acne and acne scarring. They work by exfoliating the skin's top layer and unclogging pores, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of acne and smoother-looking skin.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a device with tiny needles to puncture the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production. This treatment can help to reduce acne scars, improve skin texture, and decrease the appearance of acne.
Laser and light therapies can effectively treat acne by killing acne-causing bacteria and reducing inflammation. These treatments are non-invasive and require little to no downtime, making them a popular choice for those with busy lifestyles.

Acne Treatment FAQs
How long do professional acne treatments last?
The duration of our professional acne treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition and the specific treatment option chosen by you and your aesthetician. While some treatments may require multiple sessions over a few months for results to show, others may provide noticeable improvements in a shorter period. It is best to consult with the professionals at Cornerstone Aesthetics to determine the expected duration for your specific situation!
Are Cornerstone Aesthetic treatments for severe acne and minor hormonal acne?
At Cornerstone Aesthetics, we offer professional acne treatments suitable for patients with both minor hormonal acne and more severe conditions. Our experienced aestheticians can assess your skin condition during your consultation and recommend the most appropriate action to address your specific needs.
I have a busy life. Can you provide something for me to use at home?
Absolutely! Our certified medical aestheticians understand the demands of a busy lifestyle. Cornerstone Aesthetics can guide you on the best products to use and practices to employ at home for your skincare routine so you can continue to see relief from hormonal acne.
What can I expect from acne treatments? Are they painful or risky?
The experience and outcomes of professional acne treatments we provide — including chemical peels, microneedling, and laser therapy — can vary. But each of the methods we employ to reduce your severe or hormonal acne are safe and effective, especially after multiple sessions.
With this in mind, you can experience slight discomfort either during or after your professional acne treatment. Chemical peels, for example, may cause a mild burning sensation, tingling, or stinging, which is generally not overly painful and quickly fades within 24 hours; some mild redness and temporary skin sensitivity may occur after treatments as well. However, this is not enough to require any pain medications.
Patients who visit our aestheticians for chemical peels, microneedling, or other acne treatments can expect mild sun sensitivity immediately following the session. To prevent sunburn or other irritation, our Cornerstone Aesthetics team recommends avoiding prolonged sun exposure and wearing SPF/sun protection to minimize any potential risks or side effects.
