Lege Artis® Toronto Clinic approach to acne, acne scars, post acne redness and pigmentation
Lege Artis® - Downtown Toronto Acne Clinic
Acne-prone skin can present itself in various forms and degrees thus suggesting that a number of different procedures should be employed in sequence to achieve optimal results.
At Lege Artis® Acne Toronto Clinic we use only a non-medical and drug-free approach to problem skin. Please note that we do not prescribe any antibiotics, hormones or other medications.
With our extensive medical background, we are the only Acne Toronto Clinic that combines natural skin treatments with the most advanced laser and light based acne therapies. Our unique experience includes working with clients of all skin types and skin colours.
Effective home care maintenance is paramount for optimal results. At Lege Artis® Acne Toronto Clinic we carry a variety of the highest quality home care products.
Combination Acne Treatment Method
Everybody is different - there are differences in health, genetics, metabolism, stress, skin type, colour, gender, etc. That is why there is no such thing as one perfect treatment that cures it all and works the same for everyone. So a Combination Method is a natural choice. Some people may get incredible results with a very simple solution and fast, while the others might need more effort, time and customization.
To find out what is best for your skin - call us to schedule a complimentary consultation and we will be happy to design the most effective as well as cost-effective solution for your individual skin needs.
Extraction procedure plays a very important role in acne-prone skin treatments. It is an integral part of Lege Artis® Acne Toronto Clinic Signature Deep Cleansing Facial and PurAcne Oxygen Facial.
Extreactions allow us to address blackheads, whiteheads (comedones) as well as some oil cysts - common problems associated with oily and acne-prone skin.

Lege Artis® Clinic - Acne Treatment Results
Acne, Comedones and Hyper-pigmentation
Before - dark skin types often develop hyper-pigmentation in the areas with clogged pores (comedones), that can be seen as darker "bumps" on the skin.
After - result of one Lege Artis® Toronto Acne Clinic Microdermabrasion Facial. The pores are cleared from blockage (comedones), the skin damaged layers are gently peeled off to reveal healthier younger skin.
Inflammatory acne, skin redness and acne scars
A combination of Lege Artis Signature Deep Cleansing Facials with a series of 12 LHE Acne Clearance sessions, followed by 3 V-beam laser sessions on the cheeks area. No other modalities had been used by the client except Lege Artis Home Care Products (B3B5 Gentle Mousse, Aspen Bark Concentrate and Soja Hx). Photos at baseline and 4.5 months after.
A combination of Lege Artis® Acne Toronto Clinic Signature Deep Cleansing Facial with LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance delivered good results for a client on the above photos. Our acne skin facial treatment provides fast relief for acne-prone skin, while LHE IPL improves the appearance of acne scars and post-acne redness.
Above - Inflammatory acne. A course of Lege Artis® Acne Clinic Signature Deep Cleansing Facials with Omnilux Light Therapy proved helpful in this case. We do not use antibiotics, hormones or other medications, but only natural and safe methods and advanced laser and light based acne treatments.
LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance results. Before: the client just finished a course of antibiotics prescribed elsewhere without much success. After: 6 months after the last LHE™ IPL Acne Clearance treatment - stable improvement continues, visible significant reduction in new acne breakouts, post acne redness is much reduced, scars are minimized, skin is tighter. This client continued to improve further even after his LHE™ treatments were completed.
A single session of Lege Artis® Clinic Signature Deep Cleansing Facial , followed by a single session of V-beam Laser Therapy delivered pore clearing, redness reduction as well as post- acne scar texture smoothening. Follow up in 1 month.
Comedones, hyper-pigmentation and acne in dark skin types
Above: hyper-pigmentation and "bumpy" appearance in the areas with acne and clogged pores (comedones).
Acne in dark skin clients present a number of challenges. Dark skin is usually prone to developing dark marks (hyper-pigmentation) after irritation or trauma. Dark skin also absorbs more energy from Lasers, IPL and blue light therapy devices, thus making them less safe and/or less useful.
For the client above a combination of Lege Artis® Signature Deep Cleansing Facials, combined with Omnilux Light Therapy (Omnilux Revive and Omoilux Plus, a red and infrared spectrum light respectively) along with proper home care proved effective.
