N-LITE LASER FOR ACNE

$600 Package of (x3) treatments: $1500

Skin Works' N-Lite Laser emits a yellow laser light that targets the small blood vessels beneath the skin surface. The small blood vessels absorb the heat of the laser while the surrounding tissues and surface skin cells are unaffected. The N-Lite laser stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and effectively kills the bacteria that causes acne. The same treatment is effective for rosacea, where near-surface blood vessels are minimized. Skin Works Medical Spa proudly provides you the best N-lite treatments available in Torrance and South Bay area.

INFRARED LIGHT THERAPY & DETOX

$125

Infrared light therapy is a gentle and effective way of healing and rejuvenating your damaged skin cells, also known as photomodulation.

RF MICRONEEDLING (FACE)

$700 Package of (x3) treatments: $1700

RF Micro-Needling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster healing and repairing results that are more dramatic.

RF MICRONEEDLING (FACE) + PRP

$1100 Package of (x3) treatments: $2805

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we can add Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP to your RF micro-needling treatment. RF Micro-needling with PRP application is a supreme treatment for smoothing wrinkles and acne damages and scars. Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are essential to wound healing.

FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER FOR FACE

$1800 Package of (x3) treatments: $4590

Skin Works Medical Spa’s Fractional CO2 Laser uses the power of carbon dioxide to evaporate the top layers of the skin. These dermis layers tend to accumulate damage over the years, usually in the form of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scarring. By removing these damaged skin layers, CO2 lasered skin allows the body to create new skin cells rich in collagen. This process addresses small areas of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding skin and tissue untouched.

LASER GENESIS FULL FACE

$250 Package of (x3) treatments: $650

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive, non-surgical laser treatment that effectively minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as diffuses redness.

FAQ

What is acne, and what is the best acne treatment for men?

Acne is the most common skin disorder affecting Americans. Cystic Acne is a condition that develops when your hair follicle is clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria begin to grow inside pores, causing inflammation and “breakouts.” This causes blackheads, whiteheads, or pimples. While there are lots of commercial acne medications like oral contraceptives, or skin care products with active ingredients that are made to unclog pores, Skin Works Medical Spa's advanced and scientific methods for acne treatment and reversing acne damages are beyond what the mass-made products and solutions have to offer. We choose one or a combination of techniques to give your skin the glow it deserves!

WHAT CAN MAKE MY ACNE WORSE?

If you use greasy or oily substances, instead of oil-free products on your skin or work in a greasy area, you may cause your pores to become more clogged. Squeezing, picking at, or hard scrubbing of pimples may spread bacteria or cause swelling that can make acne worse. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to consult your dermatologist or one of our Medical Professionals at Skin Works Medical Spa in Torrance to help you decide with choosing water-based or oil-based products with active ingredients.

What causes acne in men ?

Acne occurs when pores or hair follicles are clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria inside this plug causes swelling initially. Once the swelling reduces, a pimple is formed. When your skin’s oil glands produce excess oil, acne will worsen. Overproductive sebaceous glands can cause acne too. Clinical research supports that active ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid can be used as a quick remedy or counter treatment, but are not recommended for long-term use. This can be caused by hormonal changes, certain medications, or the application of oily products to the skin that might cause clogged pores.

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT OR TREAT MY ACNE AT HOME?

You can care for your skin in a few simple ways to decrease acne outbreaks. Use a mild cleanser on your skin in the morning, evening, and after working out. Cleanse the skin gently without scrubbing the skin as this can make acne worse. When applying makeup, ensure that it is oil-free. If you shave, use an electric or sharp-bladed razor and soften the hair with soap and water before applying shaving cream. Oily hair can also cause acne. Make sure you shampoo regularly to cleanse hair of oils that may cause acne near the hairline. Over-the-counter medications, alpha hydroxy acids, and mass made acne treatments are typically used at home; however, you want to ensure that you are not drying out your skin as this can worsen acne. If you have severe acne, topical or oral prescription medications may be recommended by a dermatologist. Avoid picking or squeezing pimples as this may cause scarring.

WHAT treatments can reverse or reduce acne scars from the past?

Any method that stimulates collagen production will assist the skin with healing; therefore, the chance of acne leaving scars decreases. Micro-needling, N-lite laser treatments, and infrared light therapy stimulate collagen production and healing of the skin. VI peels help reduce the signs of acne damage while cortisone shots can help prevent scarring by reducing the damage done by a cystic bump.

DO YOU HAVE ANY URGENT REMEDY FOR A PROBLEMATIC BUMP?

Cortisone shots can be used to rapidly reduce the inflammation of cysts within 24 hours. Cortisone shots are not meant for bumps that can be “popped” and should not be used for blackheads or whiteheads.

WHO CAN GET ACNE?

Anyone can get acne; however, hormone fluctuations tend to cause acne more often in teenagers and young adults. Women may experience an increase in acne during pregnancy, their menstrual cycle, or menopause due to these hormone changes. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options available at Skin Works Medical Spa. If you live in Los Aneles South Bay area, Torrance, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and Palos Verdes, get in touch and claim your Free consultation to see if you are a candidate for our effective, efficient, and life-changing results.

HOW CAN I TREAT MY ACNE AT SKIN WORKS MEDICAL SPA?

We offer a variety of different treatments that can assist with decreasing acne, reversing the damage, and giving your skin the glow that you desire. Each method assists with reducing the presence of acne while also providing other benefits to your skin. Most of our methods stimulate collagen production in order to promote the healing of acne. These procedures include Radio-Frequency Micro-Needling, N-Lite Laser Therapy, and Infrared Light Therapy. Facials help cleans and brighten the skin while cortisone shots can be used for problematic bumps or ingrown hairs. Get a consultation with one of our highly skilled medical professionals to find out what options are best for you!

ARE THERE ANY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH A CORTISONE SHOT?

Rarely, a divot or indentation can occur and cause a sunken appearance when too much cortisone is injected; however, if this occurs, it will resolve within a few weeks to several months.

WHO CANNOT RECEIVE A CORTISONE SHOT?

Cortisone shots are only effective for pimples when you cannot “pop” them. These pimples do not head into a bump and are cystic in nature. Unless cortisone is injected, you will have to wait for these swollen acne pimples to shrink on their own. Cortisone shots may never be used on bumps that can easily be treated with a facial or removed by extraction. Prior to the procedure, do not manipulate or pick at the affected areas, as this may delay treatment. Let your medical professional know if you have recently undergone a cosmetic procedure.

HOW DOES N-LITE LASER WORK FOR ACNE TREATMENT?

Skin Works' N-Lite Laser emits a yellow laser light that targets the small blood vessels beneath the skin surface. The small blood vessels absorb the heat of the laser while the surrounding tissues and surface skin cells are unaffected. The N-Lite laser stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and effectively kills the bacteria that causes acne. The same treatment is effective for rosacea, where near-surface blood vessels are minimized.

HOW MANY N-LITE LASER TREATMENTS WILL I NEED TO GET?

Individual results will vary, and the number of treatments will depend on your unique situation. However, at Skin Works Medical Spa, you generally need 2-3 treatments to see the best outcomes. Skin Works Medical Spa provides you with the most efficient N-Lite Laser therapy in Torrance, and South Bay Los Angele.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INFRARED LIGHT THERAPY & DETOX?

With the state of the art, Infrared light therapy devices at Skin Works Medspa, this treatment boosts collagen production and firms your skin. It is safe for all skin tones and requires no downtime.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH INFRARED LIGHT THERAPY?

All areas of the body can be treated! The face is typically treated with infrared therapy in order to stimulate collagen production and firm skin and repair acne damage. Infrared therapy can be used on the back and legs for pain relief. It can also be used on the waistline to lose water weight!

WHAT IS RF MICRO-NEEDLING USED FOR?

Skin Works Medical Spa's RF Micro-Needling helps create new collagen that tightens skin and improves its texture by decreasing the appearance of stretch marks and scars and acne damages. RF Micro-Needling can reinvigorate your skin by improving circulation, allowing for bright, radiant skin!

IS RF MICRO-NEEDLING PAINFUL?

Not when done right! Our highly trained medical professionals at Skin Works MedSpa will apply a medical-grade numbing cream to the site. Scars and stretch marks will become less noticeable while the skin tone becomes evener.

WHO SHOULD GET A VI PEEL PRECISE PLUS?

If you are a man looking to reduce signs of sun damage, acne damage, and aging, then the VI Peel Precise Plus is for you! If you are not a candidate to receive IPL or Pixel treatments, then you will love this alternative. Deep, dark spots can be removed with a VI Peel Precise Plus by blending and evening the skin tone.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A VI PEEL?

You can expect lightening or disappearance of dark spots, freckles, and general discoloration. Fine lines and wrinkles are also smoothed away, making you look younger as signs of sun and environmental damage disappear.

CAN I GET MY VI PEEL BEFORE TRAVEL OR A SPECIAL EVENT?

Due to residual peeling, the VI Peel should be done at least two weeks prior to a special event. Traveling is absolutely fine! Just remember that you need to avoid prolonged sun exposure. IF you cannot avoid the sun, then wear a hat and use sunscreen that is at least 50 SPF.
