Reducing the signs of dark spots from pimples

In our practice, we have found that most patients find improvement with topical treatment such as Hydroquinone and Retin A.  It may take a few months to see results. We do carry a medical grade skin care line that commonly treats these types of skin issues.  If you would like quicker results, laser skin resurfacing may be an option if you're a candidate.  I would suggest a consultation to determine the best route.

PIH from acne

This is treated usually with topicals such as Retin A and hydroquinone. If it persists after several months of treatment, chemical peels, fraxel or QS laser will help.
