Our Acne Treatments:

Acne can be treated with a combination of topical or oral antibiotics, which acts as anti-inflammatory agents. This is often combined with topical products containing medications like tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, adapalene, etc. Occasionally, an oral anti-androgen agent may be prescribed. At Dermatology Associates, our experience has taught us that the preferred way to treat acne is to use various treatments from the start and then gradually wean off those medications as the acne goes away.

Isolaz Treatment:

Isolaz is a treatment done in the office that uses a vacuum to extract blackheads and comedones combined with the use of a specialized light to get down into the pores and kill the bacteria. This is a favorite amongst our high school students because it is practical, painless, and doesn't involve any other medications. There is no downtime which allows patients to go directly back to work or school. Isolaz treatment is usually covered by insurance. [ Learn more about Isolaz }

Isotretinoin Treatment:

Isotretinoin, a derivative of vitamin A, works by reducing the oily sebaceous glands' size and activity, which is where acne starts. When prescribed by one of our board-certified dermatologists or experienced PAs, isotretinoin can be used to eliminate treatment-resistant or severe acne so that no further therapy may be needed for years to come.
