Acne affects almost everyone — more than 90% of all adolescents, nearly 50% of all adult women and 25% of all adults.

Acne-Acne Scar Treatment is accomplished safely and effectively with the Sciton BBL Acne Treatment offered at Montana Medical Aesthetics Clinic. Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Acne forms when hair follicles under your skin get obstructed with excessive oil and dead skin cells resulting in a bacterial inflammation leading to pustules. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring. Proper treatment of over-acting sebaceous glands result in the reduction of pimples and may prevent and improve associated scarring using non-ablative measures.

Montana Medical Aesthetics Clinic will provide you with a thorough examination and plan for treatment. There are several options that we offer on an individualized assessment. Being a partner in your treatment and follow through are crucial in maintaining your skin health and diminishing active acne as well as prevention of and improvement of acne scarring. We are dedicated to your well being and will work closely with you to obtain the results you desire.

There is no quick fix for acne. Medicines and lasers do not work overnight. Although most of our patients see improvement right away, many treatments may take weeks before your skin improves. Some acne may take up to six months to clear up. Afterward, basic skin care — bathing daily and washing your face and hands with mild soap — may not be enough. You may need to keep using acne medicine and occasional laser treatments even when your skin clears to maintain your new healthy skin. Follow your skin care plan for the best results.

People of all races and ages get acne. It is most common in adolescents and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point.
