Acne &

Blackheads

Say Goodbye to Breakouts With Help From Our Board-Certified Dermatologists.

Acne is the most common skin concern we treat at The Dermatology Clinic. It affects patients of all ages and skin types and can be attributed to a variety of causes, including diet, stress, exercise, hormone levels, and medications.

If you have struggled to keep breakouts and blemishes under control with over-the-counter methods, our doctors can prescribe topical medication, provide photodynamic acne treatment, or recommend cosmetic services based on individual circumstances and symptoms.

Acne

Acne & Blackheads - Acne

Acne blemishes can appear in many different forms and can be inflammatory or noninflammatory depending on the depth of the clogged pore. This is a result of excess oil, dirt, bacteria, or dead skin cells that block the pore’s opening.

Bacterial acne is typically the most bothersome type of acne, characterized by swelling and redness, and often containing a center of visible pus (known as a whitehead). In more serious cases of painful, deep, or cystic acne, our dermatologists can perform extractions and prescribe effective medication.

Blackheads

Blackheads are a common form of acne that appear as small, dark, or black, spots on the skin’s surface. These bumps contain trapped hair follicles and are filled with sebum but are typically not painful.

Blackheads can often be managed with medical-grade skincare ingredients or exfoliating cosmetic services like microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Our doctors and aestheticians can guide which of the cosmetic treatments offered at The Dermatology Clinic will best treat your clogged pores.

Acne Scarring

Even after acne blemishes are treated and swelling resides, pesky scars are often left behind. These marks may be flat, pitted, or slightly raised and are often discolored in comparison to the surrounding skin.

Fortunately, our doctors and aestheticians offer cosmetic treatments like facials, peels, and laser treatments to reduce the appearance of scarring and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
