Acne Scars Should Not Follow You Into Adulthood

At Peterson MD, we understand how much acne can affect the quality of your life and your self-confidence. That is why our skin care specialists are dedicated to helping you achieve clear and beautiful skin using our proven acne skin treatments.

We strive to develop customized skin treatments for our patients based on the severity of your acne, skin type and particular lifestyle to give you visible and long-lasting results.

What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition caused by the clogging of pores or sebaceous glands by excess oils, dead cells and bacteria. It can lead to the formation of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts or nodules which, if left untreated, cause acne scars and permanently damage the skin.

What are my Acne Treatment Options?

The key to finding an effective acne treatment is taking an individual approach. That is why we offer a range of effective skin treatments which offer superior results with the highest levels of comfort and safety.

These include:

1. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a very effective acne scar removal treatment. The procedure is gentle and non-invasive and involves exfoliating the old and damaged top layer of skin cells to reveal newer, more refreshed skin below.

How does microdermabrasion work?

Using a powerful DiamondTome handpiece, our skin specialist will effectively exfoliate the damaged top layer of your skin to reveal vibrant, healthy skin below.

What are the benefits of DiamondTome microdermabrasion?

DiamondTome microdermabrasion utilizes diamond chips instead of traditional crystals and has many benefits including:

  • No side effects such as skin irritation or redness
  • No harmful abrasives which damage your skin and the environment
  • Gradual yet dramatic and long-lasting results
  • Minimally-invasive, pain-free skin treatment

Depending on the size and location of the treatment area, a microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes.

Number of acne treatments

This will vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of your condition. However, typically 4-10 sessions are required spaced 1 week apart.


Our patients report gradual yet dramatic and long-lasting results from this acne skin treatment.

2. Blu-U Acne Treatment

Blu-U offers an effective, non-invasive and pain free skin treatment for acne. It acts by killing acne-causing bacteria and overactive oil glands, leading to healthier, more vibrant skin.

How does Blu-U acne treatment work?

The Blu-U is a unique blue light that kills the acnes bacteria in your skin. The treatment is simple: you sit with your face close to the light for a short period of time, usually 1-2 times a week.

What are the benefits of the Blu-U skin treatment?

If you are looking for a gentle way to treat your acne, the Blu-U skin treatment offers many benefits including:

  • A pain-free, quick procedure
  • Long-lasting, dramatic results
  • Potentially prevents the development of skin cancer

The Blu-U acne treatment takes approximately 20 minutes and it is recommended that you schedule an appointment 1-2 times a week.

How many skin treatments do I need?

Many patients see significant improvement in their skin after 2-4 weekly treatment sessions of the blue light therapy.


You may experience some mild redness or bruising of the treated areas lasting up to 14 days. However, most patients are completely healed and able to enjoy their results within 1 week.

3. Blu-U with Levulan Acne Treatment

For more severe cases of acne, an aminolevulinic acid called Levulan is applied to the skin and left on for 1 hour prior to the Blu-U acne treatment. This makes the skin more responsive to the action of the blue light, resulting in a better and more effective outcome.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
