Acne can be both embarrassing and frustrating, but help is available. If over-the-counter products have failed you, you could be a good candidate for professional treatment. Read on to learn more about the different options.

No one likes acne marring their complexion. Not the 85 percent of teens and young adults who suffer from it or the adults — more than 25 percent of women and 12 percent of men in their 40s — who seem unable to outgrow it. The good news is there are a variety of treatment options to help clear up these unsightly blemishes and look and feel your best.

At Cascade MedSpa & Laser Centre in Baxter, Minnesota, our highly skilled team pairs their extensive medical training and aesthetic care experience with FDA-approved products and devices to renew and rejuvenate your appearance. Whether the issue is skin-related like acne or a challenge with the hair or body, we can help with our personalized treatment plans and friendly supportive staff.


Acne occurs when oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria clog the hair follicles near the skin's surface. This can result in everything from pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads to more serious problems like nodules and cysts. Typically it strikes the face, forehead, chest, and upper back.

A number of factors play a role in the development of acne including the fluctuation of hormones, genetics, and certain skin care products and medications. Diet choices and stress may contribute as well.


A number of treatment options are available to fit each individual's unique situation. We begin with a consultation that includes an evaluation and conversation about desired goals and then create a personalized treatment plan. Some available options include:

Chemical peels

This procedure exfoliates the outermost layers of skin and removes dead skin cells and bacteria by applying a special chemical compound. This not only helps decrease the amount of acne but also minimizes acne scars.


This treatment smooths the skin and decreases acne breakouts by using a gentle, noninvasive process to exfoliate dead skin cells.

Laser treatment

Using the state-of-the-art Sciton Forever Young BBL™ technology, this treatment uses laser energy over multiple sessions to target the bacteria that causes acne while leaving the skin unaffected. It also treats redness and hyperpigmentation.

Diamond Glow® Dermalinfusion

This innovative treatment uses the concept of resurfacing to exfoliate, cleanse and extract debris from the pores, and infuse specially selected serums to improve the skin's health and appearance.

Home care products

Powerful, pharmaceutical-grade products including cleansers, moisturizers, and more are also available to use at home.
