Get your skin in the clear
At some point, most of us will experience the detrimental effects acne has on our self-esteem and confidence. Are you tired of trying new acne cleansers, creams, and other “remedies” that promise an escape from your acne only to find that they are completely ineffective at getting rid of your painful blemishes, blackheads, and redness? Stop wasting your time and money with these options and turn to the power of broad band light (BBL) to give you clearer skin.
Using the revolutionary Forever Young BBL™ device, we are able to offer acne treatments in The Woodlands that can give you the amazing confidence that comes with clear, beautiful skin – and skipping the oral and topical medications with dangerous side effects and other harsh methods. This painless, fast treatment treats acne deep within the skin, and can kill acne-causing bacteria before breakouts even begin, with most patients seeing noticeable results after just one treatment.

What distinguishes Medical Aesthetics & Laser from the rest is our team of highly skilled and experienced personnel, all of whom share a similar passion for helping others look and feel their best.
Led by the talented Dr. Reeves, our team is dedicated to providing the personal attention and specialized care you deserve. We take the time to listen to your needs and discuss your various options with you in detail to help you make the choices that are right for you. No questions go unanswered; no concerns are dismissed. Personal attention is provided every step of the way – from consultation to after-care, we are here for you.
How it Works
When you come to Medical Aesthetics & Laser for a free consultation, we will discuss your history with acne in order to ensure you can expect results from BBL treatments. Be sure to tell us all the current acne medications you are taking, as some may need to be discontinued for a period of time before your first treatment. We can also recommend skincare products with beneficial ingredients for further clearing your acne during your treatment series.
Forever Clear BBL delivers a unique, cutting-edge acne treatment in The Woodlands that is unlike any other IPL treatment available on the market. Your skin undergoes a comfortable three-step process:
1. Skin is first treated with blue BBL light to target and kill acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores at the source
2. Skin is then treated with a yellow BBL light that helps reduce inflammation and acne-associated redness for healthy, luminous skin
3. Finally, we treat skin with infrared light in rapid, gentle pulses to signal the body to begin its natural healing process
Following the completion of a series of these acne treatments in The Woodlands, along with maintaining a healthy skincare regimen, you can expect to clear up to 80% (if not more) of your actively inflamed lesions, not to mention the prevention of future breakouts.
How to prepare for your acne treatments in The Woodlands with Forever Clear BBL:
- Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning creams for at 2-4 weeks before and throughout your BBL treatment course.
- Avoid the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, gingko, and alcohol for at least a week before and for 2 days after treatment.
After your acne treatments in The Woodlands…
- Avoid use of scented lotions or soaps, exfoliant creams (Retin-A; glycolic, salicylic, and alpha-hydroxy acids), acne creams or gels, loofah sponges or other abrasive scrubbing until sensitivity subsides.
- Wash with tepid water.
- Avoid shaving and any activity that cause excessive sweating.

I have been going to Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser for over a year. Angela is extremely competent and thorough in delivering excellent customer service. She is also knowledgeable in what treatments are needed to get the best results for a beautiful and younger appearance. I am very pleased with my results and highly recommend Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser. I would never go anywhere else.
I have been a client of Medical Aesthetics and Laser for the last few years. Prior to this, I tried several other clinics and doctor’s offices (including a couple of top plastic surgeons in Houston & The Woodlands) for Botox and facial treatments, but nothing can compare to results I have obtained with Allison and Kelli. I consider Allison to be both an expert and an artist in the way that she administers Botox and Dermal Fillers. She gives me a youthful appearance without causing me to look unnatural or contrived. I have used Kelli for laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and facials. Since adhering to her skin care regimen, my skin has never been as clear and healthy as it is now. I feel confident in recommending Medical Aesthetics and Laser to anyone who has the desire to improve their appearance, and gain confidence in the image that they project to others.
Kalya was very informative and very kind. She did all my BBL appointments and recommended me a great line up OBAGI products which I fell in love with. It is always comforting to know that you are not alone in your skin care battles. I went in feeling very hopeless and kind of depressed with how my face had taken a turn for the worse and even hesitant. She was very gentle and beyond encouraging with what my journey would look like. She was even able to help me see the benefits of changing my makeup, which ladies we all have our favorite kind of makeup. Her recommendation of Jane Iredale has made a night and day difference in my skin. My face feels healthy and not bogged down with all kinds of makeup and layers of products. 100% recommend sitting down with her and letting her guide you through your personal skin care goals, IT WILL BE WORTH IT!!
Most areas of the body can be treated. However, we most commonly perform face, neck, and back acne treatments in our Woodlands office.
With just one or two treatments, you will notice changes in your skin. Redness is minimized and breakouts are clearing. The total number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. We will personalize a treatment plan for you.
This procedure is very safe and non-invasive. Most patients do not require a topical anesthetic, but we can make one available to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Learn more about our pain management options.
The results of our acne treatments in The Woodlands can be maintained indefinitely by taking good care of your skin and using sunscreen religiously. We also recommend having maintenance Forever Young BBL treatments every 2-6 months, depending on your acne type and severity. This will sustain your results and kill any future breakouts forming. Results can vary, however, as many factors like genetics, stress, diet, and hormones also affect breakouts.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your Forever Clear BBL procedure up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
