Acne Treatment

Mocasa Wellness Center provides acne treatment. Most people assume that acne only appears during puberty. However, men and women can suffer from acne breakouts at any age, including their 40s or 50s. If you suffer from acne breakouts, you may have tried numerous treatments, ointments, and cosmetic products without sufficient results. That’s because acne can be caused by numerous factors, and your treatment must address the specific cause of acne. Even when the acne clears away, you may still be left with noticeable scars as a reminder of your history with acne.

Mocasa Wellness Center understands that acne and acne scars can be frustrating, causing immense self-consciousness and anxiety. Instead of offering cookie-cutter treatments for acne and acne scars, our cosmetic providers identify the root cause of your acne breakouts for long-lasting relief. We also activate your body’s natural healing processes to clear away the acne scars, making your skin look smooth and supple. Please consult our cosmetic providers to discuss your acne treatment.

Treatments for Acne

Acne occurs when one of your skin pores is clogged due to dead skin cells that get trapped within the pore rather than rising to the surface and falling away. Dead skin cells may get trapped within the pores if you have excessively oily skin and sebum. The acne may also become inflamed due to certain bacterial activities, leading to a painful acne cyst. Acne is caused by clogged pores, excessive sebum, and bacteria.

As such, professional acne treatments unclog the pores, remove the dead skin cells from your face, adjust excessive sebum production, and kill the p.acnes bacteria.


Facials use various skin care products to improve your skin’s texture and scrub away the dead skin cells. Since acne breakouts occur due to clogged pores, facials can minimize the risk of breakouts by reducing oil production and unclogging the pores. Facials are ideal for patients with non-inflammatory acne.


HydraFacial is a specialized skin rejuvenation treatment that combines exfoliation, hydration, and cleansing capabilities to help you achieve gorgeous skin. The HydraFacial device clears away the dead skin cells and debris from the pores, extracts all the oils and dirt, and rejuvenates your face with specialized products that kill acne bacteria.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are similar to facials, but they involve using medicated skincare products. The cosmetic provider selects the ideal skincare formulations to reduce sebum production and kill the acne-causing bacteria. Furthermore, chemical peels scrub away the uppermost layers of the skin and the dead skin cells, thereby unclogging the pores.


Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation technique wherein a specialized device gently abrades the outermost layers of the skin. The technique removes all the dead skin cells and damaged skin tissues. It’s also accompanied by a suction force to unclog the pores, helping you achieve smooth/ acne-free skin.

Venus Versa

Venus Versa is the most effective light therapy for acne because it directly targets the bacteria responsible for your acne. Acne occurs due to the propionibacterium acnes bacteria that thrive within clogged pores. Venus Versa is a cutting-edge light technology with a dual light applicator that releases two forms of light energy simultaneously to kill the bacteria.

The blue light produced by Venus Versa kills the p.acnes bacteria, thereby reducing the possibility of future breakouts. Meanwhile, the red light produced by Venus Versa reduces the surrounding inflammation. As such, this device treats acne, prevents future breakouts, and facilitates skin healing to reduce redness.

Treatments for Acne Scars

All acne breakouts don’t automatically become scars. However, extremely deep or inflamed acne (usually due to bacteria) can damage the surrounding skin tissues, leading to scars. As the acne recedes or fades away, your body tries to heal the damage left behind, but it’s not always successful. As you grow older, your body’s compromised healing abilities prevent the scars from healing. Collagen is necessary for scar healing — without sufficient collagen, the scar remains etched on your face.

As such, acne scar treatments activate your body’s natural healing capabilities and collagen production to smoothen and heal the scars.


Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure wherein a specialized device makes numerous microscopic channels on the skin’s surface to activate your body’s dormant healing/ collagen production capabilities. Your body increases collagen production and skin cell turnover, replacing the damaged skin with new skin cells, thereby healing the scars.

Microneedling with PRP

Platelet-rich plasmas (PRPs) are components derived from your blood with high volumes of growth factors, i.e., components responsible for your body’s natural growth and healing activities. The PRPs are purified from a small sample of your blood and slathered over your skin after microneedling, thereby boosting your collagen production capabilities to heal acne scars.

Venus Viva

The Viva modality of the Venus Versa system utilizes radiofrequency energy to heal acne scars. The device uses ultra-thin needles to deliver thermal energy into the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response while encouraging collagen production. Over time, the production of new collagen fibers and elastin fibers leads to smooth and flawless skin.
