The Acne Treatment Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique acne specialist in Los Angeles. During this relaxing and energizing one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. They will also inspect your treatment area(s). Once your provider determines which acne treatments are the best course of action for your concerns and goals, your session(s) can be scheduled.



The treatment or treatments deemed most effective for you can range from a cortisone shot for cysts, to laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, dermaplaning, microneedling, chemical peels, and more. Each acne treatment provides its own active defense against the symptoms and/or causes of acne. With many of these treatments, you can:

  • Eliminate the acne (even during an active outbreak)
  • Destroy the bacteria that cause acne
  • Reduce or eliminate acne scars
  • Clean out pores
  • Remove dead skin
  • And more!


Each treatment has its own unique recovery process and possible downtime. None are surgical, most are minimally invasive or non-invasive, and many have no downtime at all.

As part of your consultation with your acne specialist in Los Angeles, you’ll be able to discuss the recovery time and any possible side effects of each treatment. Matching the treatment and its aftercare to your lifestyle and expectations provides the best solution for a return to clear, clean, radiant skin!
