What is Acne Treatment?

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world, affecting up to 55% of all adults between the ages of 20 and 40. “Acne treatment” is an umbrella term for a wide range of treatment options for individuals suffering from adult acne. We formulate unique, non-invasive treatments that address the root cause of your acne breakouts, such as excess sebum production, clogged pores, or the p.acnes bacteria. Your acne treatment options include chemical peels, facials, HydraFacial, and Venus Versa laser treatment.

Causes of Acne Breakouts

Acne may appear in numerous forms, such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, papules, and/or pustules. In most cases, acne breakouts occur because of clogged pores filled with excess sebum and debris. When your pores are clogged, your body develops an inflammatory reaction and the presence of p.acnes bacteria can worsen the situation, leading to pimples, cysts, blackheads, and whiteheads. In some cases, you may also develop pus-filled nodules deeper within the skin, leaving massive scars.

Your Acne Treatment Options

You may suffer from acne breakouts for various reasons. At Buffalo Aesthetics, we curate personalized treatment plans just for you. Some of our acne treatment options include chemical peels, facials, HydraFacial, and Venus Versa laser treatment. Besides minimizing the risk of acne breakouts, we also focus on collagen production to reduce the visibility of atrophic acne scars, thus allowing your skin to heal and help reverse the signs of acne. Each treatment plan is customized according to your unique skin conditions and requirements.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are unique skincare formulations that exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin, making the damaged epidermis peel away. Removing the damaged layers of the skin paves the way for smoother, softer, and younger skin underneath. Furthermore, chemical peels also contain ingredients that unclog the pores and kill the p.acnes bacteria, reducing acne breakouts. Some of the most common ingredients in chemical peels are salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid.


Facials are skincare formulations with a unique blend of peptides, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, hyaluronic acid, and other ingredients. They’re applied to the skin’s surface during a relaxing spa-like treatment in the form of a mask. We customize unique facial treatments that exfoliate the skin’s surface, remove debris and oil residue from the clogged pores, and prevent acne breakouts. Furthermore, we also use collagen-stimulating ingredients to reduce the visibility of acne scars.


HydraFacial is a unique, cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that facilitates exfoliation, extraction, and infusion in one session. The unique HydraFacial device exfoliates the uppermost layers of the skin while removing the debris and oil residue from clogged pores using a suction device. Once the pores are cleared, the cosmetic provider applies a unique blend of skincare products, such as vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and peptides to improve your skin texture. This treatment reduces acne breakouts and acne scars.

Venus Versa

Venus Versa is a cutting-edge IPL (intense pulsed light) device that uses dual light energy to heal existing acne-related inflammation, while also destroying acne-causing bacteria to minimize future breakouts. Sometimes referred to as IPL photofacial for acne, IPL for acne produces noticeably smoother, healthier-looking skin that you’ll be happy to show off.
