Ranging from mild to severe, acne is a common condition that may cause oily skin, blackheads, whiteheads, red bumps, pustules, nodules, cysts, and scarring. A blemish, often caused by acne, can also be any type of mark, spot, discoloration, or flaw that appears on the skin. Acne and blemishes on the face may be unsightly and emotionally upsetting, but most are benign and not life-threatening.
Several medical treatments are available to help reduce acne scars. Our skin specialists will suggest particular treatments, depending on skin type and extent of the scarring and acne. Recommendations may include regular chemical peels, microneedling, high frequency, LED light therapy, lasers and medical-grade skincare products.
