That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of services and approaches to help you effectively address this skin concern, restore your self-esteem, and promote better skin health.

What is Acne?

Acne can be caused by several factors, and understanding these causes is essential in effectively addressing and managing the condition. Acne can be caused by:

· Hormonal changes
· Excessive oil production
· Bacteria
· An accumulation of dead skin cells
· Inflammation
· Genetic predisposition
· Lifestyle factors

Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause can trigger acne breakouts. Overactive sebaceous glands produce excess oil, which can clog pores and contribute to acne. Bacteria, specifically Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), can multiply in clogged hair follicles, leading to inflammation. Dead skin cells can combine with oil and block pores, while inflammation and the immune response further contribute to acne formation. Genetic factors can make some individuals more prone to acne, and lifestyle factors like harsh skincare products, sweating, stress, diet, and inadequate skin cleansing can worsen the condition.

Understanding these causes helps in developing effective strategies to manage and prevent acne.

Acne Can Take Many Forms


There are different forms of acne that can manifest on the skin. The most common types include:


  • Whiteheads: These are small, flesh-colored or white bumps that form when the pores are partially blocked by oil and dead skin cells.
  • Blackheads: Blackheads are similar to whiteheads but have a dark appearance. The dark color is not due to dirt but rather to the oxidization of the oil and dead skin cells when exposed to oxygen.
  • Papules: Papules are small, red, inflamed bumps that may be tender to the touch. They occur when the walls of the hair follicles break down, leading to inflammation.
  • Pustules: Pustules are larger and more prominent than papules. They are characterized by a red base with a white or yellowish center filled with pus.
  • Nodules: Nodules are large, painful, solid lumps that form beneath the skin’s surface. They result from a severe infection deep within the hair follicles and require professional treatment.
  • Cysts: Cysts are the most inflammatory form of acne. They are large, pus-filled lesions that are deep, painful, and prone to scarring. Cysts should be treated by a dermatologist to minimize complications and prevent long-term damage to the skin.

Acne Treatment at Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa

At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we believe in addressing acne blemishes from multiple angles to provide the best possible outcomes for our clients. Our experienced team of professionals offers various services and approaches tailored to meet your specific needs. Here are some of the options available:

  • Fractora: Fractora is a treatment that utilizes radiofrequency technology to target acne and acne scars. It delivers controlled heat energy deep into the skin, increasing collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation. By addressing the underlying causes of acne and promoting skin healing, Fractora can help reduce acne breakouts and reduces the look of acne scars. Best for inactive acne.
  • IPL Photofacial: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial treatment uses high-intensity light pulses to target and destroy bacteria that contribute to acne. It also targets the excess melanin in the skin, reducing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation. IPL Photofacial can help clear acne-prone skin and improve overall complexion. Best for inactive acne.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels consist of applying a safe chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outer layers and promotes cell turnover. This process helps unclog pores, reduce oil production, and improve acne. Chemical peels can also diminish the appearance of acne scars and uneven skin tone, leading to a clearer and smoother complexion. Best for active acne.
  • Facial Extraction: Facial extraction is a manual technique performed by an aesthetician or dermatologist to remove blackheads, whiteheads, and other debris from clogged pores. By clearing the pores, facial extraction helps prevent acne formation and reduces the risk of inflammation. It can be combined with other treatments to increase their effectiveness. Best for inactive acne.
  • JetPeel: JetPeel is a non-invasive treatment that uses a high-velocity jet stream of saline and oxygen to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This gentle yet effective method helps remove impurities, unclog pores, and promote lymphatic drainage. By eliminating debris and stimulating circulation, JetPeel can improve acne-prone skin and enhance the absorption of topical acne treatments. Best for active acne.
  • LED Therapy: LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of light to detect and destroy acne-causing bacteria. It also helps regulate oil production, reduce inflammation, and promote skin healing. LED Therapy can be an effective standalone treatment for mild to moderate acne or used in conjunction with other therapies for more comprehensive results. Best for active acne.
  • HydraFacial: HydraFacial is a non-invasive facial treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection. It effectively treats acne by deeply cleansing the pores, removing impurities and excess oil, and providing nourishing serums that promote skin health and reduce breakouts. HydraFacial improves the appearance of acne-prone skin, resulting in clearer and healthier-looking skin. Best for inactive acne.
  • OxyGeneo: OxyGeneo is a non-invasive facial treatment that combines exfoliation, oxygenation, and infusion to rejuvenate the skin. It gently removes dead skin cells, increases oxygen supply, and infuses nourishing serums. OxyGeneo effectively revitalizes acne-prone skin, improving texture and promoting a clearer complexion. Best for inactive acne.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote skin rejuvenation. It effectively addresses acne by unclogging pores, reducing oil production, and improving the appearance of acne scars. Microneedling helps achieve smoother and more even-toned skin, making it a beneficial treatment for acne concerns. Best for inactive acne.
  • Combination Treatment Options:
    · JetPeel + Chemical Peels + LED Therapy
    · HydraFacial/OxyGeneo/JetPeel + Facial Extraction + IPL + LED Therapy
    · Fractora/Microneedling + Facial Extraction + IPL + LED Therapy

    I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.

    Anytime I consider getting a procedure done I do extensive research online. Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa looked like a high end medical spa with very good reviews. So I decided to do under eye filler with them. Dr. Murad was very good at the injection and patient as well. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Thanks!

    I had a wonderful experience at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. From the moment that you walk in, the staff is so welcoming and friendly, the decor is professional and gorgeous, and you just feel so comfortable and relax. Nurse Tingting is absolutely amazing at what she does. She is highly skilled and patient in answering all of my questions. I have been seeing her for a while and had great results with InMode BodyFx for body contouring. Sunshine is simply the best medical spa in Kitchener Waterloo area! 10/10 would go back again and highly recommand to others who looking for skincare service!
