Best Treatments for Teens & 20s

Becoming familiar with how to care for your skin in your teens or 20s can give you a great advantage. Even if your skin looks great (lucky you!), there are still plenty of amazing treatments that will benefit your skin in the long run, and you are never too young to start taking care of your skin! Plus, we all know avoiding signs of aging, scarring, or sun damage, works best with prevention, which means planning ahead.

Those in this age range may also be dealing with acneic skin. There are so many procedures and promises out there, but getting in with a skin expert is really the best way to find out about your skin and get the best products and treatments individually for you.

So, let’s take a look at some of the best treatments for teens and 20‑somethings! 

Clinical Facials

Monthly clinical facials are the foundation of good skin. Your skin’s cells turnover monthly, so monthly facials help your skin with the process and should be a regular part of maintenance. Clinical Facials are also extremely effective and versatile. They can help with resurfacing, deep cleansing, acne, large pores & congestion, irregular texture, dehydrated skin, hyperpigmentation, redness, Melasma, PIH and more. They can also decrease puffiness by helping circulation and blood flow, and repair some mild acne scarring 

Deep cleansing facials in particular will get deep down into the skin and decongest your pores by removing oil, dirt, and bacteria that your at‑home skincare can’t get rid of. You’ll notice smaller pores, smoother skin, fewer blackheads, breakouts, and inflammation, as well as an overall brighter complexion. PLUS facials are super relaxing, so why wouldn’t you want to get one a month?!

Resurfacing Treatments

Resurfacing the skin has many benefits. It can reduce acne breakouts, treat pigmentation and uneven tone, improve scarring, reduce pore size, and give you a beautiful glow. LED treatments allow for chemical‑free resurfacing by using varying wavelengths of light to treat various skin conditions, of all skin types. Blue light is used to treat acne, while red light is used to help with inflammation, aging, and healing the skin. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite treatments!

  • Geneo ‑ Infuses and oxygenates while helping circulation and collagen production. It treats the texture of skin while creating metabolic changes to deeper tissues to treat aging, dull and dehydrated skin, pores, texture, acne and more. 
  • DiamondGlow ‑ Combines exfoliation, extraction and infusion to stimulate collagen and volumize the skin by addressing the underlying cellular processes that cause skin imperfections including sun damage, acne and texture. 
  • Hydrafacial ‑ Exfoliates, cleanses, hydrates and rejuvenates the skin non‑invasively. Removes dead skin cells, extracts impurities and treats the skin with condition‑specific serums. It’s great for all skin types and safe for most skin conditions. 
  • SaltFacial ‑ Combines deep salt resurfacing (which is antibacterial and anti‑microbial) with Ultrasound technology and restorative LED therapy for unprecedented skin rejuvenation, detoxification, and restoration for more youthful skin, while treating hyperpigmentation, acne, redness and more.


Microneedling is a non‑surgical treatment that uses tiny stainless steel needles to stimulate your body’s own collagen‑producing capabilities to speed up cellular turnover, resurface your texture, and even fade old acne scars and hyperpigmentation, leaving you with stunning results. It’s also safe for all ethnicities, and there is really no downtime, making it a great treatment for just about anybody! For clients in their teens and 20s, pen‑based microneedling and RF (radio‑frequency) microneedling are both great options.

  • Exceed ‑ the only pen‑based device we endorse and the only one to have a dual FDA‑clearance for both acne scars and lines. These treatments are great for all imperfections like scars, acne scars, texture, uneven tone and more. Exceed will show you amazing results with minimal downtime and less cost than the RF‑based micro‑needling options. You may experience pink to red skin for 24‑48 hours after a treatment, but this can easily be soothed with moisturizer. 
  • Secret RF ‑ Delivers tailored RF energy uniquely into the skin to improve acne scarring from the inside out. With no to minimal downtime, and safe for all ethnicities, Secret RF tightens skin, minimizes pores, reduces scarring and acne scarring, lightens pigmentation, dramatically reduces stretch marks.
  • Morpheus8 ‑ The gold standard and non‑invasive cosmetic procedure that takes facial rejuvenation to the next level, combining the benefits of microneedling and RF energy technology into one powerful treatment. You’ll see dramatically improved skin texture, skin tone, with less scarring, pigmentation, PIH and more.

Low Level Lasers

We’re kind of laser junkies over here. With 50+ lasers and energy‑based devices, we’re a bit obsessed. But not without good reason! Lasers can basically give your skin a fresh start within weeks. For those in their teens and 20s, we recommend low level lasers to increase healthy cell growth, circulation and tissue regeneration, and help acne, scarring, large pores, uneven tone, and overall dull skin. 

Two of our favorite low level non‑ablative lasers for our young clients are:

  • Laser Genesis ‑ Sends energy deep into the skin to target overactive sebaceous glands, acne, inflammation and texture. You’ll be left with calmer, airbrushed‑looking skin and fewer breakouts!
  • Clear + Brilliant ‑ By sending fractions of heat deep into the skin, damaged skin is replaced with healthier skin, leaving a rejuvenated, smoother complexion. Considered the best laser for beginners.
  • AdvaTx ‑ Vascular hybrid laser that treats redness and texture simultaneously. Dual wavelengths fight acne‑causing bacteria, broken capillaries, redness, and irregular texture, leaving you with visible long term results.


Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL) and Broadband Light (BBL) are incredible treatments that use broadband light to help even your skin tone, making it softer, clearer and smoother. This includes marks from acne, including PIE and PIH. By delivering powerful light energy to the upper layers of your skin, these devices can treat redness, brown spots, sun damage and dull skin. They also target sebaceous‑glands to kill acne‑causing bacteria to reduce breakouts. These treatments have no downtime and work great in conjunction with other lasers! One of our favorite tried and true combos for those in their teens and 20’s is BBL with Clear and Brilliant for next level rejuvenation.

  • Limelight (IPL) ‑ Light helps target acne, redness, PIH, PIE, and pigment to create a more even‑toned, radiant complexion, without social downtime. 
  • BBL+ ‑ A gentle way to treat both redness, pigment, and overall sun damage. You’ll be left with a more even skin tone and a beautiful complexion.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are one of the simplest, least expensive, and least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin for pores, texture, tone, pigment, sun damage, fine lines, acne and more. By creating a controlled injury to the tissue, chemical peels help to promote new skin growth. After the skin has peeled, you’ll be left with a beautiful bright complexion and smooth youthful looking skin. 

RevePeel ‑ Innovative peel system that is extremely effective for acne and sun damage. Treats acne, discoloration, uneven skin tone, large pores, fine lines, spots and more!

Vi Peel ‑ The first medical grade peel to combine major acids in a pain‑free formulation to achieve younger looking skin, even for darker skin types. Helps with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, Melasma, acne and scarring.
