Acne is a common but frustrating skin condition that impacts people of all ages. In many cases, acne is thought to be genetic, and its side effects—including blemishes, whitehead, blackheads, greasy skin or even scarring—can cause considerable distress to those affected. Dr. van Aardt and the dedicated medical aesthetics team at Vitality Medi Spa in Halifax understand how frustrating acne can be, and how damaging it can be to confidence and self-esteem. Let us create a customized blue light acne treatment plan to help you minimize the appearance of acne.
