Lege Artis® - helping acne-prone skin since 1996
Our Combination 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.
Please note that we do not prescribe any antibiotics, hormones or other medications. At Lege Artis® Clinic we use laser and light technologies, our signature facial treatments as well as thoroughly selected home care products.

Extreactions allow us to address blackheads, whiteheads (comedones) as well as some oil cysts - common problems associated with oily and acne-prone skin. 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.

Our Acne Treatment Results
Acne and Hyper-Pigmentation in Dark Skin Types
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 and in the areas with clogged pores (comedones), that can be seen as darker "bumps" on the skin. Dark skin also absorbs more energy from Lasers, IPL and blue light therapy devices, thus making them less safe and/or less useful.
Acne and Skin Redness
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.
