Acne

What is acne?

Acne is a condition resulting from a number of factors including excessive oil production from the oil glands in the skin, plugging of the pores, and the inflammatory action of skin bacteria. The resulting problems include blackheads and whiteheads, pimples, pustules and cysts which may result in permanent scarring.

What treatments are available to treat acne?

Depending on the specific situation we recommend HydraFacial – a very effective method of cleansing the surface of the skin, chemical peels, cosmeceuticals selected by Dr. Rosenthal for their effectiveness, and photodynamic therapy or a combination of these. At your consultation your skin will be examined and we will then be able to offer you treatment alternatives.
