The best treatments for adult acne not only clears your skin, but improves it long term. For mature skin, acne breakouts present a special challenge. How do you eliminate or reduce the acne cycle, without over-drying the skin?
The Nouveau Clinic goes beyond the usual product or treatment advice and considers all the important action steps necessary to clear the skin.
Control Current Breakouts
Reduce the Risk of Scarring
Improve the Appearance of Existing Scars
Prevent Premature Aging
Reduce and Eliminate Future Breakouts
Mature skin has special needs.
Harsh salicylic or benzoyl peroxide based products aimed at treating acne in younger skin, can strip mature skin of needed moisture, while disturbing the skin’s delicate PH balance. This can cause an inflammatory response that makes acne worse, and could trigger more oil secretion and more pimples, as well as leaving the skin feeling too tight. Unbalanced skin can be reactive and is at risk for future breakouts and possible acne scarring. Products that over-dry mature skin can also exacerbate fine lines, wrinkles, sensitivity and redness.
Our focus is on you “as an individual” and the healthy reduction of acne, through a re-balancing of your skin and body chemistry. This takes time and consistency.
Mature skin with adult acne requires a customized approach to deliver results that do not over-dry the skin, or compromise the skin’s overall elasticity and vitality.
Every individual’s chemistry is different, and there are often many layered conditions contributing to acne in adults. Genetics, hormones, medications, stress, lifestyle considerations. We believe that regular weekly treatments combined with a flexible treatment plan, works hand-in-hand with home support therapies. Our combination therapy will allow us to customize every treatment providing predictable and cumulative improvements as you move through your Adult Acne Series.

Introducing Nouveau SkinTM
(Serious Acne Home Care, Formulated by a Pharmacist)
The Nouveau Skin TM adult acne treatment line, was developed with a pharmacist, to work hand-in-hand with our clinical acne treatments. Our proprietary formulations were created to help shorten and reduce the severity of breakouts, while preventing over-drying, and loss of elasticity in mature skin.
Nouveau Skin TM is scientifically based to focus on balance, healing and scar prevention. This thoughtfully formulated skin care system, addresses the complex needs of treating acne in mature skin and sets a new standard for adult acne treatment products . Our skin care products are made “on-demand” in small batches, to ensure the highest standards for freshness, with minimal preservatives.
All ingredients and all products are cruelty free, and compounded locally in Georgia.
** Skin care products are sold separately.
There are no quick fixes, and there is no one-size fits all treatment for acne.
Our philosophy is different from many medical and unsupervised over-the counter approaches. We believe the body – and specifically the body’s metabolic processes, have a natural intelligence for healing and re-balancing. Our treatments are designed to gently facilitate and support these processes so that the body has the best chance to heal itself. This creates an opportunity to end or greatly reduce the cycle of break outs, inflammation and possible scarring. Healthy skin care, preserves the skin’s natural protective matrix, while supporting cellular rejuvenation, from the inside out.
Your Esthetician / Technician is specifically trained in the special needs and therapies for treating acne in mature skin. We are your partners in better skin care. As you begin this journey to a younger, healthier complexion, your Technician will be your skin’s “personal trainer” throughout your series. Each visit they will adjust the treatment protocol to address the changing needs of your skin.
As your acne improves, our focus will change to address a re-balancing of moisture and elasticity and scar repair (if needed). This can include treatments aimed at pigment rebalancing and collagen rejuvenation, for a better overall complexion.
Customized treatments, every visit. Each treatment is tailored to the individual needs of your changing skin. As you move through your 10-week series, your Technician will re-evaluate your skin’s progress to determine the best treatment course for each session. As your skin heals and the breakouts subside, we will focus more on PH and pigment balancing, tightening, toning, elasticity and scar reduction.
