Acne may involve the development of blackheads, whiteheads, and pustules along with cysts and nodules. Though the blemishes most often occur on the face, individuals may have lesions on the back, chest or neck. Acne might also develop on the shoulders, upper arms or buttocks. There are a variety of treatments depending on the severity of the Acne. Our Providers may prescribe special cleansing and moisturizing products that commonly contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, which reduce inflammation and inhibit bacterial growth. Antibiotics applied topically or taken orally eliminate the harmful bacteria that cause inflammation and swelling. Our licensed Estheticians offer acne surgeries (acne facials) which involve a deep cleansing of the skin, exfoliation and extractions.
