Acne Myths That Aren’t True


Acne Myths That Simply Aren’t True

At Orchard Med Spa, we're passionate about educating our clients and providing top-notch skincare solutions. In honor of Acne Awareness Month this June, we’re debunking some common acne myths and highlighting the services and products that can help you achieve clear, healthy skin.

Myth: Acne treatment should only be used as a spot treatment on blemishes.

Fact: To prevent acne effectively, spread acne medication evenly all over the face. This approach helps to prevent new blemishes from forming.

Myth: You can use toothpaste as acne treatment.

Fact: Toothpaste is formulated for your teeth, not your skin. It will not improve your acne and may even cause irritation, making your skin condition worse.

Myth: Acne will clear on its own after your teenage years are over.

Fact: While acne is common during teenage years, many adults continue to experience acne well into their 30s, 40s, and even 50s. Proper skincare is essential at every age.

Myth: Acne treatment works immediately.

Fact: Acne treatment requires patience and consistency. It can take weeks to months before you see significant results, so stick with your regimen.

Our Favorite At Home Skincare Device

LED Radio Frequency and EMS Skin Tightening Machine

By Halie Cooper - April 23, 2024

Featured in our BioLight Miracle Facial, the LED Radio Frequency and EMS Skin Tightening Machine is a  state-of-the-art device that has become a beloved staple in many of our clients skin care routines. This device is a non-invasive alternative to costly machines, allowing you to implement results-based treatments into your skincare routine, right at home! 

 We recommend the use of Galvanic Gel to protect your skin and allow for easier use of the device.

This device provides a number of skin benefits with it’s five different modalities:

- Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS). This provides gentle electrical stimulation to the skin surface to help improve the appearance of skin elasticity, soften the appearance of wrinkles and leave skin looking smooth and healthy.

- Radio Frequency (RF). Radio frequency energy uses thermal energy to help stimulate the superficial skin layers and improve the appearance of firmness.

- Electroporation. This method helps to deliver important skin care ingredients directly into the surface layers of the skin, maximizing the effectiveness of skin care products.

- Mesoporation. A non-invasive technique which applies pulse currents to help the surface layer of the skin better absorb key ingredients.

- LED light therapy. Each LED wavelength or color of light provides a unique benefit to the skin. LED treatments can minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, help reduce the appearance of dark spots and the visible appearance of sun damage and stretch marks, and reduce the appearance of redness and irritation from aggressive skin treatments as well as help improve the appearance of oily, problem skin.

Mode 1. Red LED Light Treatment:
Red LED light is used to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhance the moisturization of the skin. 


Mode 2. Green LED Light Treatment:
Green LED light is used to help lessen the appearance of dark spots or sallow, discolored skin. 


Mode 3. Blue LED Light Treatment:
Blue LED light is used to lessen the appearance of oiliness and problem areas.


Mode 4. Yellow/Amber LED Light Treatment:
Yellow LED light is used to brighten the appearance of the skin.


Mode 5. Pink/Violet LED Light Treatment:
Pink LED light is used to reduce the appearance of sallow, dull skin. 


Mode 6. Flashing Pink LED Light Treatment:
Pink flashing LED light is used to help deliver skin ingredients to the surface layers of the skin. 


Why you should incorporate Vitamin C Serum in your daily routine:

Boost protection against the enemy

April 1, 2024

Why you should incorporate Vitamin C Serum in your daily routine:
Healthy Skin Enemy: Free Radicals and UV Rays!!!!

What Is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in a wide range of plants, including leafy green vegetables and citrus fruits. It is the most plentiful antioxidant in human skin and is closely involved with maintaining skin’s overall health and appearance. Since humans cannot synthesize vitamin C, we get this essential vitamin mainly through the regular consumption of fruits and vegetables. However, only a small portion of dietary vitamin C makes its way to the skin. Instead, bolstering the skin’s concentration of vitamin C is best achieved via topical application. As such, you’ll find vitamin C in a wide range of skincare products, including serums and moisturizers.

What Does Vitamin C Do?

In the skin, vitamin C has several critical roles. It provides antioxidant protection against damaging free radicals and helps protect the skin from UV rays (though this protective effect is not enough to serve as a replacement for sunscreen). 

Wearing SPF shields your skin from harmful UV rays, but when combined with vitamin C, you are taking proactive steps to enhance your skin's defense mechanisms. Vitamin C boosts skin protection levels, making it an essential addition to your skincare regimen for a radiant and youthful complexion. Embrace the power of vitamin C and SPF for double the skin-shielding benefits and say hello to healthier, more resilient skin!

Expanding on Ablative Erbium Laser Resurfacing

Expanding on Ablative Erbium Laser Resurfacing

With advances in laser technology, it is possible to significantly improve aged or sun-damaged skin. Ablative Erbium laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures for improving aging skin.

The procedure works by delivering an intense wavelength of energy to the skin, which removes the outer layers of aged or sun damaged skin. In addition, the laser stimulates collagen formation of the underlying skin, resulting in an improvement in wrinkles. As the lasered skin heals following the procedure, new skin forms that is smoother and tighter.

Ablative lasers are used to treat:

  • Fine to moderate wrinkles

  • Sun-damaged skin and age spots

  • Uneven skin tone

  • Acne or surgical scars

  • Texture

First Steps - Planning Session!

If you are considering ablative erbium laser resurfacing, the first step is meet with one of our certified laser clinicians to discuss your skin goals, discuss your medical history, including previous surgeries and medications.

Your certified laser clinician will give you specific instructions to follow before the procedure.


Before the procedure, your face will be thoroughly cleaned. You will be numbed with a topical anesthetic to help reduce discomfort. Protective eye shields are worn during the procedure to protect your eyes. The  laser causes just the right amount of controlled damage to the small targeted area of skin. This removes aged or sun-damaged skin and at the same time, encourages healthy collagen to grow in its place.

We schedule 90 minutes for the procedure.


Depending on the intensity of treatment agreed on with your laser clinician, your skin may look and feel as though it is sunburned. You will be instructed on how to care for your skin during the initial healing process. It is important not to pick or scratch at the skin while it is healing. It is recommended that the first week following treatment, activity is limited. 

It typically takes two to four weeks for your beautiful skin result to be fully revealed. 

Our laser clinicians are here to guide you through this exciting procedure and will make recommendations on your skincare and sun protection to protect your beautiful results. 


Did you know that NOW is actually the best time to book a chemical peel?

Did you know that NOW is actually the best time to book a chemical peel?

Did you know that NOW is actually the best time to book a chemical peel?

Winter is the perfect time for a chemical peel because the peels expose the deeper layers of your skin. This makes your skin more sensitive to heat and UV rays after your treatment. When you get a chemical peel during cooler, winter months when the sun is less intense, your skin is better protected as it heals. 


Having a treatment in the fall and winter months gives you plenty of time to heal and for the new, beautiful skin to replace the old, dead cells.  If you’re getting a deep chemical peel the recovery period for skin can take longer, so planning ahead and getting your peel done well before the spring and summer really begin is important.

At Orchard Medical Spa, our team of caring professionals are here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Whether you would like to correct, rejuvenate, or enhance your appearance, your satisfaction is our primary concern. Relax and enjoy your chemical peel or any of the wide range of beauty treatments available to refresh and renew your skin and give you a whole new you.
