Acne & acne scarring


Acne is the most common dermatological condition in the United States. About 80% of Americans have experienced acne at some point in their lives. It is more commonly seen in teenagers or young adults, but acne can occur at any stage in life, including infancy and above the age of 40. 

What causes acne? Acne appears when pores become clogged, and is generally a combination of sebum and dead skin cells. 

Dermatologists know that letting acne runs its course is not always the best way of handling it and this is because without treatment dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the face and body as your body tries to clear the acne. Our providers are knowledgeable in the most effective medications and treatment plans to suit your unique skin type. We also offer services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injections that can over time effectively aid in the appearance of acne and acne scarring.
