Acne affects individuals of all ages. A complex interaction between hormones, bacteria in the hair folllicle unit, oil (sebum ) production, and/or obstruction of the follicle opening (comedogenesis) lead to mild, moderate or severe acne. Common sites affected are the face, neck and torso (chest and back). Our Dermatologists will evaluate your acne, whether it is your first time seeing a Dermatologist or you are seeking an additional opinion. Our physicians will provide you an individualized treatment plan. Treatments range from gentle washes, diet changes, and mild topical preparations, all the way up to more powerful light treatments and oral medications. We help guide the choice of the best treatment on a patient-by-patient basis so that everyone is comfortable with the plan. We follow up closely to ensure that the treatments are working, and doing so safely.
