Acne Treatments in North Myrtle Beach

Medical-grade skincare

Your VISIA Skin Analysis results will help us understand your skin. Based on your skin type—oily, dry, combination, acne-prone, or sensitive—we will recommend a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer with SPF to get you started. Lucky for you, we carry ZO Skin Health and SkinCeuticals medical-grade products!

The at-home regimen we design for you will be integral to clearing up your acne. The medical-grade products we recommend contain high concentrations of active ingredients that will specifically target your skin concerns. 

Your regimen could be a stand-alone treatment plan, or it could be supplementing another treatment; it’ll all depend on your acne severity and goals. 

Something important to keep in mind is your regimen isn’t locked into place forever—it can change dynamically! We’ll schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress and make necessary changes. Be sure to track your progress with your regimen and note any issues that arise. 

Holistic skincare: Naturopathica

At Touch MedSpa, we believe in medical-grade, but we also believe in the powers of Naturopathica’s holistic skincare products! These products take chemicals and filler substances usually found in over-the-counter products out of the equation. 

Naturopathica delivers clean ingredients to heal your skin and lead to natural cell regeneration. There’s absolutely nothing chemical and irritating about it. Not only are the products suitable for your bodily environment, they’re also suitable for our natural environment 🌎

This is a fantastic option for people who want to try more natural, holistic healing methods! It can also, of course, be used in tandem with other acne treatments in North Myrtle Beach. 

Medical facials

Our medical facials target a wide variety of concerns and are highly customizable. No matter your skin type and acne severity, we have a facial for you that we can alter to meet your goals. We’ll talk through your options during a consultation.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels use trichloroacetic acid to exfoliate the skin, clearing out all the acne-causing gunk to improve texture and appearance. 

You can say goodbye to bacteria, excess oil, and dead skin cells and hello to smooth skin. For optimal results, i.e., clearer skin, we’ll recommend a series of treatments. 

Chemical peel benefits:

  • Improves your skin’s ability to absorb product
  • Reduces acne-causing oil production
  • Reduces pore size


Microdermabrasion is fantastic for acne, scarring, fine lines, and brown spots. Our aestheticians use a medical-grade device to gently exfoliate your skin, removing the topmost layer. This wipes away the acne-causing culprits—the dead skin cells and bacteria that are living on the top layer of your skin.

Microdermabrasion serves as a preventive and corrective treatment. 

Microdermabrasion benefits:

  • Improves skin’s texture
  • Improves skin’s ability to absorb product
  • Brightens dull skin
  • Reduces scars


A HydraFacial exfoliates, extracts impurities, and hydrates your skin. We have tons of add-on options to optimize your HydraFacial results! 

HydraFacial benefits:

  • Improves skin’s texture
  • Unclogs pores
  • Improves skin’s ability to absorb product
  • Evens out skin tone


This treatment wipes away peach fuzz, dead skin cells, and dry, flaky skin, which all hold bacteria that lead to acne. Dermaplaning is more of a preventive acne treatment than a corrective one.

Dermaplaning benefits:

  • Unclogs pores
  • Improves skin’s ability to absorb product
  • Removes dead, flaky skin 

Forever Clear BBL 

Forever Clear BBL is one of the most effective acne treatments in North Myrtle Beach. Truthfully, it’s for people who have tried everything and don’t want something as involved as long-term medication

This is for patients with active acne and even cystic lesions. The broad-band light device allows us to hone in on the root cause; we’ll get deep into the skin, targeting the core of where that bacteria lives. And this is all done gently with zero downtime—Forever Clear BBL is a friend to the skin!

We generally don’t recommend laser treatments in the summer, but if you can limit sun exposure and take necessary precautions with SPF, we can consider a summer treatment schedule. 

However, if you can’t stay out of the sun, we may opt for facial treatments or other alternatives instead.

How many sessions will I need?

You’ll need somewhere between 6 and 8 sessions, depending on the severity of your skin and your personal goals. We will schedule treatments 2 weeks apart. 

If you’re a long-time acne battler, you’ll likely need maintenance treatments after you finish your main treatment plan to ensure acne doesn’t return with a vengeance. 

Mineral makeup

Mineral makeup is cleaner makeup that doesn’t include the acne-causing ingredients that aren’t healthy for your skin—dyes, fragrances, oils, and preservatives. This makeup sticks to your skin’s natural oils rather than seeping into your pores, ultimately clogging them. 

If your skin is acne-prone and oily, you’ll benefit from mineral makeup.

Mineral makeup benefits:

  • Doesn’t lead to more acne
  • Brings down inflammation (Great for after a laser treatment!)
  • Protects against UV rays
  • Lasts longer than traditional makeup


Another option for acne treatments in North Myrtle Beach is supplements. Health on the outside starts from the inside ❤️‍🩹Your gut has a lot to do with it! Skin Accumax is a Jane Iredale supplement we carry that promotes healthy skin with Vitamins A, C, E, and diindolylmethane—a phytonutrient in vegetables like broccoli.

This combination of nutrients reduces skin oil production and inflammation! We’re happy to chat more about the positive effects that supplements can have on your skin.

Why work with a professional skincare team? 

To be able to provide all of these acne treatments, aestheticians undergo extensive training on skin health, products, and aesthetic treatments and technologies. With this wealth of knowledge they accumulate, they are able to make informed decisions on your skin concerns and how these will best be treated. 

Whether you’re seeking preventive or corrective care, working with the skincare professionals at Touch MedSpa will help you understand your skin in all its uniqueness. Here’s what this process looks like!

Step 1: The Skin Consultation

The first step in exploring acne treatments in North Myrtle Beach is a complimentary skin consultation. We really want to get to know you before we assess your skin and make any recommendations. This isn’t about selling you anything—it’s about finding you the best possible solution. 

When we sit down in a comfortable treatment room, we’ll ask you to share your concerns with us and all of the products and methods you’ve tried to no avail.

  • What are your goals? 
  • What is/isn’t working?
  • Where do you want your skin to be?
  • What questions do you have for us?

Step 2: VISIA Skin Analysis

We’re getting deep! The VISIA Skin Analysis technology takes images of your skin to detect issues under the surface. It scans texture, pigmentation, pore size, sun damage, wrinkles, and bacteria.

VISIA analyzes and compares your skin against other people in your age group to measure the current state of your skin. All you have to do is sit still while it works its magic!

Step 3: Your Custom Treatment Plan

This is the best part! Once we’ve learned about your skin and interpreted your analysis, our team will get to work creating your custom treatment plan. We will build your plan based on these factors:

  • Your budget
  • Your skin type
  • The severity of your acne 
  • The time of year

And we aren’t just going to create your plan and throw you to the wolves! We’ll walk you through every step and every treatment, letting you in on the why behind everything. It’s vital that you understand your treatment plan and are an active participant in it—our ability to work seamlessly together is the only way to clear skin.
