Acne

Acne is a common concern for many adolescents and adults. Hormones and other factors can increase oil production in the skin, causing pores to become blocked. Clogged pores can produce blackheads and whiteheads, and the overgrowth of bacteria can cause redness and pimples. If the inflammation penetrates deep into the skin, an acne cyst develops. Acne outbreaks range from mild, characterized by an occasional pimple or two, to severe, with areas that are continuously red and swollen with deep cysts. While most common on the face, acne can also affect the neck, chest, back, and shoulders.

For relief from active acne and advanced acne scar treatment in the Boston area, request a consultation online at SkinCare Physicians or call our office at (617) 731-1600 to schedule an appointment.

Active Acne

  • Medical evaluation and treatment can address active acne and prevent future breakouts.
  • Chemical peels can unclog and shrink pores, and may decrease oil production.
  • Photopneumatic therapy with Isolaz® combines vacuum pressure and broadband light to clean the skin and kill acne-causing bacteria.

Acne Scars

Because each patient is unique and there are many ways to treat acne scars, it is important that patients choose a cosmetic surgeon who will carefully evaluate their skin and who is skilled at a wide variety of procedures.

  • Advanced acne scar treatments combined can make different types of acne scars dramatically less noticeable.
  • Chemical peels soften acne scars by removing the outer superficial layer of skin.
  • Laser skin therapies gently improve coloration or texture of acne scars with minimal recovery time.
  • Laser resurfacing removes thin layers of skin with successive treatments until the scars improve or disappear. These treatments also tighten and smooth the skin.
