Acne and Acne Scars (Teen and Adults)

This is a very common condition present in teenagers and also in adults.  Acne is the result of hyperactive sebaceous glands; in many cases the cause is hormonal. Acne can be disfiguring and affect self-esteem. When acne is not treated can leave permanent scars.  Our practice offers medical and laser treatments to improve acne. We also offer Photodynamic therapy with Levulan®, the latest technology to treat severe cystic acne that has been resistant to other treatments.  Along with the medical and laser care we offer a line of products for acne such as the Acne Kit made by Dermamed or the Acne Toner made by Skin Medica.  We also treat acne scars with microdermabrasion, microlaser peel, Genesis laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL). If you have not been able to put your acne under control, we can help you and if you still have the scars form your teenage acne there is hope.
