The Emotional Effects of ACNE & ACNE SCARRING

I 'm happy you are sharing your concerns about the frustrations of your acne and residual scars. This is a major problem for many adults !  If you have been treating your skin for 6-8 weeks or more and have not seen results, then it is time for a new evaluation.

Our approach normally, consists of a combination of multiple treatments to arrest the acne and improve the scarring and discolorations left behind.   Some of the recommended treatment plans might include the newest laser treatments, medical -grade peels, micro-needling, and an adjunct of effective skin care to promote clarity and skin health.
