Acne is a skin condition that can affect the face, the upper chest, and the back, most commonly during adolescence. In some cases, acne can persist into adulthood. Many factors contribute to acne including genetics, stress, diet and hormones. The condition causes inflamed red bumps, whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts commonly referred to as pimples or zits, to erupt on the surface of the skin. Early treatment of acne is important to prevent scarring of the skin. In some stubborn cases, your physician may recommend prescription topical and oral medications and we offer a variety of aesthetic treatments.

It is most commonly diagnosed in children, and in most cases  the condition decreases or completely goes away as the child ages. In some cases, the condition will persist through Adulthood. We offer topicals, biologics, light therapies, and clinical trials as treatment options.
