No more Acne. Happy. Exactly!

No matter the severity of your acne, we'll come up with the right solution for you.

While over the counter medications can work well on some forms of acne, moderate-severe acne often need a more tailored medical treatment regimen.

That's where we come in. We customize treatment plans for your specific type of acne and your lifestyle.

We do this by first identifying your specific type of acne and get to the root causes of your acne. The list of causes is long, but some common causes include:
  • Hormones
  • Number of Oil Glands
  • Medications (even vitamins!)
  • Bacteria and Infections
  • Exposures
Once we find out why you have acne, we then attack those root causes to stop acne in its tracks.

Getting good results is part science, part experience and part art. This often needs a combination of different treatments to get at different root causes.

For example Benzoyl peroxides are good at fighting the P. acne bacteria, while Retinoids unclog pores and Salicylic acid reduces inflammation and redness.

Just as important as medical treatment is a review of your personal habits, many of which can worsen acne.

During your visit we will do a thorough evaluation and review and come up with solutions for you.
