Calgary Acne Treatment Clinic

Acne starts when the skin’s oil (sebaceous) glands secrete too much oil and plug the tiny pores in the skin. Sometimes these clogged pores can take the form of blackheads (black spots), sometimes they appear as whiteheads (white bumps filled with skin cells, oil and bacteria). These can also turn into larger, red, inflamed and painful bumps under the skin. These lesions can also sometimes become infected.

Acne can be caused by external factors such as the makeup or skin care, or hair products you are using, or it can come from internal factors, such as hormone imbalances, stress, medications, or even diet. Having clear skin isn’t just about vanity. Your skin is the first thing people notice about you and we understand how those breakouts can have a huge impact on someone’s self-esteem.

For our Acne Treatment, we look at the whole picture. We will discuss your current skin care routine, diet and discuss options and treatments to try and resolve the acne, which usually encompass medical grade skin care products as well as acne laser treatments.*

Reduce or Eliminate Acne and Acne Scarring

At Vantage Medical, we offer solutions for your skin concerns – to heal your skin and remove signs of acne scarring, we recommend one of the following:*

  • Laser Facials
  • Jessners Chemical Peels
  • Medical Grade Skin Care products, such as ZO Medical

A Jessner’s chemical peel is a medium-depth peel that is designed to improve more extensive skin damage than an alpha-hydroxyl-acid peel can provide. It is made of salicylic acid, for penetration, lactic acid for exfoliation and resorcinol (which is great for the treatment of acne).


  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Reduces hyper-pigmentation
  • Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves overall complexion
  • Helps loosen stubborn acne
  • Restores a youthful glow
  • Customized treatment for more extensive skin damage
