What Is Acne?

Acne is the most prevalent skin issue in the United States. Nearly 50 million people suffer from the condition, which occurs when hair follicles (pores) become congested with excess oil and dead skin cells. Acne usually appears on your face, chest, upper back, and shoulders, but it can occur anywhere on your body.

There are several types of acne, including:

  • Whiteheads and blackheads (comedones)
  • Small, tender red bumps (papules)
  • Pimples (pustules)
  • Large, painful lumps beneath the surface of your skin (nodules)
  • Painful, pus-filled lumps under the surface of your skin (cystic acne)

Depending on the severity of your acne and how long you’ve had it, you may also be left with scarring.

What Causes Acne?

While research is ongoing to discover the exact cause of acne, the prevailing view in dermatology is that it is the result of a combination of:

  • Bacterial overgrowth
  • Overactive sebaceous or oil glands
  • Abnormal function of the pilosebaceous unit and hair follicles

For many people, diet, emotional stress, and hormones often lead to flare-ups or worsening of acne symptoms.

In most cases, acne initially shows up during the hormonally turbulent teenage years; yet adult-onset acne is not uncommon. Whereas teenage acne often appears in the T-zone of the face (the skin over the forehead and nose), adult acne occurs most often along the jawline and chin.

What Is the Best Treatment for Acne?

Our acne treatments are customized to your individual needs and offer a significant amount of flexibility and variability. Sometimes, combining several procedures is the most effective approach.

Topical and Oral Medications

We carry a full selection of acne medication options, including:

  • Accutane®
  • Topical retinoids
  • Topical antibiotics

Laser and Light-Based Therapies

One of the most effective light-based treatments is Forever Clear BBL®, which combines blue, yellow, and infrared light to kill bacteria, calm inflammation, and encourage healing.


A refreshing 30-minute HydraFacial HydraFacialcleanses and exfoliates the skin, extracts pore blockages, and infuses the dermis with nourishing serums.

Chemical Peels

Formulated with beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) and alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic acid), chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to reduce both acne and acne scars.
