Acne comes in several forms, including whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Our board certified physicians can tailor combination treatments suitable for all skin types, such as chemical peels, Aviclear Laser for active acne, which targets sebaceous glands to reduce oil production, or we can prescribe oral medications like Accutane or topical creams like tretinoin. These can be combined with Morpheus8 to help ablate active acne and treat early scars as well as Cutera’s Excel V laser to target the redness after acne (post inflammatory erythema). If you are white, asian, african, middle eastern or hispanic we have powerful solutions to help you combat active acne and restore confidence in your appearance.

What is the main cause of acne?
Acne is caused by a combination of factors, including hormonal changes, excess oil production, bacteria, dead skin cells, and inflammation.
Can acne be cured completely?
We do have multiple ways to improve acne significantly and prevent future breakouts. The best way to reduce oil production is with AviClear since there are no systemic side effects.
How long does it take for acne treatments to work?
The effectiveness of acne treatments varies, but most take about 4-8 weeks to show significant improvement.
Can certain foods cause acne?
Research on diet and acne is still ongoing, but some studies suggest that high-glycemic foods and dairy products may contribute to acne in some individuals.
Can stress cause acne?
Yes, stress can exacerbate acne by increasing oil production and inflammation in the skin.
Does drinking water help clear acne?
While staying hydrated is essential for overall health, there is no direct evidence that drinking water alone can clear acne. However, proper hydration can promote healthier skin.
Is it bad to pop pimples?
Yes, popping pimples can cause infection, inflammation, and potentially lead to scarring. It’s best to leave pimples alone and allow them to heal naturally.
How often should I wash my face if I have acne?
It is recommended to gently cleanse your face twice a day with a mild soap or cleanser. Over-washing can cause irritation and dryness, which can worsen acne.
Are there any home remedies for acne?
Some home remedies, such as applying tea tree oil or aloe vera gel, may help with mild acne. However, it is essential to consult a dermatologist for persistent or severe acne.
Can makeup cause acne?
Greasy or oil-based makeup can clog pores and contribute to acne. Look for non-comedogenic, oil-free makeup products to minimize acne risk.
Is acne contagious?
No, acne is not contagious. It is a skin condition caused by factors such as hormones, oil production, and bacteria.
Can sunlight help clear acne?
While some people may notice a temporary improvement in their acne after sun exposure, excessive sun exposure can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer. Always protect your skin with sunscreen.
Do acne scars fade over time?
Some acne scars may fade over time, while others may require treatment. Dermatologists can recommend various treatments, such as chemical peels, laser therapy, or micro-needling, to improve the appearance of acne scars.
Can over-the-counter treatments work for severe acne?
Over-the-counter treatments may provide some relief for mild to moderate acne, but severe acne typically requires prescription medications or other treatments recommended by a dermatologist.
How can I prevent acne breakouts?
To prevent acne breakouts, maintain a consistent skincare routine, avoid oil-based makeup, manage stress, consume a balanced diet, stay hydrated, and exercise regularly. Consult a dermatologist for personalized advice on preventing acne.
