The CaTara Acne Clinic
This comprehensive, clinical program is the result of in-depth research and continued training to help our clients struggling with acne.
Acne is the most common skin condition affecting teens and adults. Acne can create anxiety, stress, and frustration and that is why we have created a program that not only provides results for the skin condition but supports the whole person. This program is unique because it offers wellness coaching, including: nutrition, meditation, yoga, and massage – providing you with lifelong strategies to live a balanced life. Here at CaTara Med Spa we know you need the comprehensive acne treatment Chicago and Algonquin find effective, which is exactly what we are providing.
This is not a “one and done” type of treatment. Treating acne takes commitment. We will start with a comprehensive skin and life-style evaluation to better understand you, your needs and expectations. We will schedule regular visits to monitor your individual results and adjust products and treatments as you progress. In the beginning, we recommend a minimum of 4 treatments (every 2 weeks) over the course of 2 months. From here we will evaluate results.
This is an individual process, results will vary from person to person but you won’t go it alone. We will be there with you, helping you every step of the way. Call or book online to schedule your complimentary consultation and let’s help you achieve your most healthy and vibrant skin!

Acne is the top reason why people consult a skincare professional. Although commonly linked to puberty, acne can strike at any age regardless of gender. CaTara Med Spa offers you a full portfolio of acne treatment options that are personalized for you by our medical staff.
What causes acne?
The hormonal imbalance that typically occurs at adolescence is thought to impact the function of the skin’s oil glands or sebaceous glands that produce oil (sebum). This oil travels up to the skin pores to protect the surface of the skin and to keep it hydrated. When excessive sebum is produced, the pores can become clogged and along with dead skin cells on the surface give rise to bacterial growth. To protect against bacteria, the body responds with inflammation and this process is called acne cascade. This results in the characteristic red and swollen bumps commonly called pimples.
While a genetic tendency can also increase the risk of acne, external factors such as stress, a wrong diet, and harsh chemicals in makeup products can also lead to breakouts.
A full range of acne treatments at CaTara Medical Spa
From clearing clogged pores to rejuvenating dull skin with exfoliation, we have a solution to address every skin concern and offer the best acne treatment in Chicago.
Chemical Peels – Chemical peels are the least invasive and effective way to address uneven skin tone, acne scars, and oily skin. These peels are liquid solutions containing ingredients that penetrate deep into acne pores to clean them out. These treatments delivered by our highly-experienced medical professionals improve the texture and tone of your skin by removing dead skin cells to reveal refreshed skin beneath.
Laser Treatments – Offered exclusively at our Chicago location, laser treatments are a quick way of removing hyperpigmentation that is a result of acne and to treat inflammatory acne. Lasers are intense monochromatic lights that stimulate fibroblasts in the skin, which are special cells that promote wound healing by restoring collagen and elastin. Our experts at CaTara Medical Spa are well-versed in using different types of lasers to remove scars and hyperpigmentation associated with acne.
Red Light and Blue Light Therapy
The red light helps with microcirculation which brings blood up to the surface of the skin, helping it to heal and removes redness.
Blue light therapy treats existing acne flare-ups and prevents future breakouts by killing Propionibacterium acnes bacteria.
Both of these treatments can be done in conjunction with other treatments such as HydraFacial.
HydraFacial MD – This is a comprehensive skin treatment that takes just 30 minutes to complete and delivers long-term results leading to improved skin health. Our experts combine skin cleansing, exfoliation, chemical peel, and extraction to remove clogged pores and dead skin cells while rejuvenating the skin.
Injectable fillers – Acne scars can form small depressions, which result in uneven tone and texture. At our top-rated medical spa, we offer highly targeted injectable fillers which even out these depressions and scars.
Microneedling Skin Resurfacing Treatment – We are focused on offering cutting-edge treatment options to our valued clients that bring out the best in terms of appearance and skin health. Microneedling is performed using a hand-held pen to make microscopic punctures on the skin, which stimulates natural collagen production and encourages the healing process.
Extractions in Action
Extractions are great for your skin fitness! Here, our esthetician uses a method of applying an enzyme treatment and steam to make the whole process more manageable. By removing the acne-causing bacteria, our beautiful patient is well on her way to clearer, more healthy skin.
