Comprehensive Acne Treatment Options in Los Angeles

Our clinic provides a variety of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments designed to target acne at its source, reduce inflammation, and improve skin texture. Here are some of the key treatments we offer:

Photodynamic Light Therapy

Photodynamic light therapy (PDT) is an innovative treatment that uses a combination of light and a photosensitizing agent to target and destroy acne-causing bacteria. This therapy also reduces oil production and minimizes inflammation, making it highly effective for treating moderate to severe acne.

  • How it Works: A photosensitizing agent is applied to the skin, which is then exposed to a specific wavelength of light. This combination activates the agent, leading to the destruction of bacteria and reduction of oil glands.
  • Benefits: PDT is non-invasive, requires no downtime, and can significantly reduce acne lesions and improve overall skin texture.

Laser and Light Therapies

  • Laser and light therapies are powerful tools in acne treatment, targeting both active acne and post-acne scars. At Cupid Lips, we use advanced laser technologies to provide safe and effective treatments.
    VBeam® Laser: This pulsed dye laser targets the redness and inflammation associated with acne, helping to calm the skin and reduce active breakouts.
  • Fraxel Laser: Ideal for treating acne scars, the Fraxel laser promotes collagen production and skin renewal, reducing the appearance of scars and improving skin texture.
  • Clear + Brilliant® Laser: A gentle fractional laser that helps improve skin tone and texture, making it an excellent option for those with mild to moderate acne.

Chemical Peels

  • Chemical peels are effective in exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells that can clog pores and contribute to acne. Our customized chemical peels can help reduce acne breakouts and improve skin clarity.
  • How it Works: A chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing the top layers to peel off and reveal fresher, clearer skin underneath.
  • Benefits: Chemical peels can reduce the occurrence of acne, minimize the appearance of scars, and promote a smoother, more even complexion.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that creates micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, promoting healing and reducing acne scars.

  • How it Works: A device with fine needles creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process.
  • Benefits: This treatment can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, and enhance overall skin health.
