Acne Acne - before and after treatmentMost acne conditions will worsen and increase the chance of scarring, if left untreated. Advanced acne therapy involves regular clinical acne treatments and a home skin care regimen using topical medications that are appropriate for your skin type. This combination will keep your skin clear and your acne under control to prevent permanent scarring.

There are several treatments, depending on the severity of the acne. The CosMedix "Purity Peel" is a very effective acne treatment, as well as Societe's Transition peel. If there is scarring, the VI Peel and Timeless Peel are excellent choices. Another popular and effective acne treatment involves papaya enzyme, followed by glycolic acid to penetrate the follicle.  Oxygen-rich products such as Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) and clinical oxygen therapy are employed in most acne treatments to control the bacteria which contribute to acne flare-ups.

Acne Scarring

When the skin is injured severely or repeatedly, it forms scar issue that may be thick, hard and discolored, compared to normal skin tissue. CosMedix' Purity Peel and Timeless Peel are very effective in reducing acne scarring, as well as the new VI Peel. The Jessner Peel also alleviates inflammation and discoloration from acne scarring and sun damage.



Several Peels and Hydration therapies are used in our anti-aging regimens. The appropriate treatment is best determined by consultation. Nutrition also plays an important role in any successful anti-aging program.

Brown Spots - before and after treatmentThese can be caused by hormonal changes, sun damage and are also part of the natural aging process. Weekly to bi-monthly professional-strength treatments, combined with home care program consisting of a combination of glycolic acid, and melanocyte suppression ("bleaching agents"), and an SPF-30+ sunscreen.  The exact treatment depends on the cause and severity.

The Pomegranate Peel and VI Peel are good choices for individuals with hyperpigmentation.

DermaSound Plus This is an ultrasonic facial that's powerful and effective, yet gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, including rosacea. It combines exfoliation, infusion and microcurrent therapy.  The result is smoother, healthier, younger looking skin with no down-time. The DermaSound is excellent when used in conjunction with a CosMedix peel or Societe peel.

Oxygen Facial

Keratoses are rough patches of skin. Most are caused by a combination of age, sun and diet. Some are harmless, though unsightly; and some are potentially cancerous.
- Seborrheic keratoses are flat, brownish spots and can be removed by freezing or with a laser.
- Keratosis Pilaris
is characterized by small, hard bumps clustered on the skin, caused by clogging of hair follicles with skin cells. It typically affects teens to young adults.  It usually decrease or is less noticeable with age.
- Actinic keratoses
are pre-cancerous, characterized by reddish patches that are often covered with a flaky or scaly grey or reddish skin. Sometimes the area is slightly raised. Consult a physician to diagnose and treat the
pre-cancerous forms of keratosis.
LED Light Therapy The Luminox LED and Revitalight instruments use specific, single frequency light to combat acne, rosacea, sun-damaged and aging skin. The therapy is inexpensive and sometimes results are seen after the very first treatment.

As with all skin care treatments, results are cumulative, so, for the best results, the LED Light treatment is done in a series two to four weeks apart, and sometimes with a express treatment in-between. This is also an excellent treatment to combine with your favorite peel to amplify the results.

LED Pulse Light Therapy should not be confused with Intense Pulse Light (IPL). IPL is actually a laser instrument, and carries the associated risks.
LED Light Therapy
is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions an exciting advancement in skin care that has been available at Eastbay Acne & Skin Care Clinic since 2002.


Also known as freckles or "age spots", lentigines are light gold to dark brown in color. They are caused by genetic and environmental factors. Lentigines are treated most effectively with a combination of home care and a series of chemical peels, like the VI Peel and Pomegranate Peel, and are also responsive to LED Light Therapy.

Meanwhile, minimize sun exposure and use an SPF 30 sunscreen daily.


Melasma is a mask-like skin discoloration which usually appears on the cheeks and forehead. Also known as "the mask of pregnancy," it is usually hormone-induced. Melasma can be successfully treated with a series of chemical peels and home care products.
Microdermabrasion Exfoliation is an important part of skin care. Without it, dead skin cells and oil clog pores and lead to inflammation, poor skin health and appearance.  EBAC offers three methods of microdermabrasion to exfoliate skin:
the traditional microdermabrasion method utilizes
  aluminum oxide crystals,
ultrasonic DermaSound uses ultrsonic frequencies to
  gently exfoliate sensitive skin,
Liquid Microdermabrasion uses crystals embedded in a
  serum base that is manually applied for accurate
  pressure control.

Our preferred methods are the Liquid Microdermabrasion because it offers more precise pressure control that is critical to good and even exfoliation. For sensitive skin and rosacea clients, the DermaSound is preferred.
With the availability of these newer methods, the traditional microdermabrasion is less desirable because of variations in crystal flow, and the lack of tactile feedback that tells the esthetician how much pressure is being applied to the skin.

Nutrition & Diet

The foods we eat and our general nutrition affect our skin's health. Certain foods stimulate hormones, and the lack of certain essential vitamins and minerals influence our skin's health and appearance.
We offer helpful diet and nutrition tips to keep your skin healthy, calm and beautiful.
Nu-Derm System
A three-phase program that exfoliates, and stimulates the development of new, healthy cells to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, increase elasticity, reduce hyperpigmentation and normalize oil production and skin moisture.  The Obagi program is conducted only under medical supervision for safe and effective skin renewal.

NOTE: EBAC does not offer the Obagi Peel due to the intense action of the Obagi Peel on the skin, and the inherent risks associated with it. There are several safer and less expensive alternatives available today, such as the Timeless Peel and VI Peel that are just as, if not more effective.back to Top

Oxygen Facial

A gentle massaging deep cleanse and extractions, followed by oxygen plasma, and MSM for a healing anti-inflammatory and growth stimulating facial. It concludes with a cool spray-down of pure oxygen, and vitamin/ mineral spray.

Oxygen Treatment, 
Pre- and Post-Surgical


Medical-grade oxygen gas is used in conjunction with vitamins and minerals to nourish and revitalize skin cells.  Lynn Cowie, CE, the owner and founder of EBAC  pioneered the Oxygen Therapy procedure for post-operative cosmetic and laser surgery, and has documented a significant reduction in recovery time.  This consists of seven to ten consecutive days of treatments to achieve optimal healing.  Oxygen Treatment has also been shown to be effective in treating acne by reducing bacteria levels in the skin.

Power Peeltm

Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells mechanically as it stimulates and rejuvenates skin tissue.  It is used very effectively to reduce acne scarring, large pores, brown spots, dry/oily and sun-damaged skin.  Approved by the FDA, this is one of our most popular therapies due to it's beautiful final result. click for more information on Power Peels

Razor Bumps


back to TopThe medical term for razor bumps is Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. This condition is easily treated with a consistent, daily home care program. The elimination of after-shaves and cologne, along with new shaving techniques helps to improve the condition of the ingrown hairs. Proper use of Glycolic Acid with a bleaching agent helps to fade away dark spots (post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation) that can result from this skin condition.


Rosacea is characterized by many broken capillaries on the skin's surface, particularly on the cheeks, that give the mild to extreme redness. Left untreated, the skin may thicken over time accompanied by the development of scar tissue.

Clinical treatments are an important part of Rosacea management. Oxygen therapy strengthens the vascular pathways, thereby decreasing overall skin redness and capillary distention. Glycolic treatments promote a softer, smoother complexion and inhibit skin thickening, a common symptom of this skin disorder as it progresses. LED Light Therapy has been shown to be effective in closing down the superficial capillaries, and decreasing the redness associated with rosacea. For best results, clinical treatments should be performed on a monthly basis.

Rosacea also responds very quickly to a topical home care program consisting of a Glycolic Acid Cleanser, a Basic Cleanser, Glycolic Acid Facial Lotion, DermaSilk,
Aloe Cort Cream and a topical antibiotic, if necessary, for acne breakouts. Internal vitamin therapy is also recommended. These pharmaceutical-grade products must be used as instructed.

Societe Peels Societe offers two wonderful peels for acne and anti-aging:
  Transition Peel - Salicylic, resorcinol and lactic acids blended and buffered for an effective, rejuvenating peel. Great for oily, hyperpigmented and problematic acne.
  Acai Berry Lactic/Glucan Peel - improves skin tone with a blend of two acids and powerful anti-oxidants. Good for all skin types, and un-prepped skin.
See DermaSound Plus
VI Peel The VI Peel is Eastbay Skin Care's newest peel for hyperpigmentation, acne, anti-aging, sun damage and  scarring. The unique blend of ingredients produces powerful results without pain or skin preparation, and there is very little downtime. The results are beautiful.

Vitamin C Peel

Vitamin C firms and tones your skin. These peels are an excellent treatment option for sagging, dull, stressed skin, and are easily integrated into other treatment options.
Waxing This is a traditional and effective method of temporary hair removal. Wax is layered on the affected area. When it cools, the wax is removed and the hair goes with it.
Please note that we only offer facial waxing at EBAC.

Please observe the notation regarding medications and skin sensitivity with regard to waxing.
