OUR BOARD CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGISTS HAVE A RANGE OF SOLUTIONS
TO HELP YOU DISCOVER CLEAR, HEALTHY SKIN.
Acne is the most common skin problem in the country. It begins most often, in puberty, and affects more than 80 percent of adolescents and adults at some point in their life. We know how acne can impact your skin, but we also know it can impact your self-confidence. Our board-certified dermatologists are able to provide accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment to help your acne improve quickly. To determine the best course of treatment, we will assess your skin condition, consider the number and type of lesions, the amount and area of skin involved, as well as your age, overall health, and medical history.
Acne is a result of clogged pores that become pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts or pustules. These blemishes commonly occur on the face but can also appear on other areas of your body such as the back, neck, and scalp.
Our dermatologists offer a wide array of options depending on your skin condition and will create a treatment plan specifically for you. Choices may include prescription-strength topical and/or oral medications, antibiotics, hormone therapy, light therapy/ laser treatment, medicinal acne facials or chemical peels. Our goals are to heal existing blemishes, stop new breakouts, and prevent scarring.
Pediatric acne can seem especially worrisome for new parents. While pediatric acne is common, we understand that you want to be sure all is well with your baby's delicate skin. Acne can develop at about two-to-four weeks of age. By four-to-six months, most infants’ acne will clear, without treatment. If you find your baby's skin is getting worse
