Acne is a skin condition that affects pre-teens, teens and adults. As we have seen at SkinSafe Dermatology and Skin Care in Beverly Hills, acne can vary in presentation and cause, and can be socially-stigmatizing and frustrating. It can also create permanent scarring. There are many, effective topical and oral medications that can manage acne flares and prevent new lesions. Accutane is one option for moderate-severe acne that is not cleared with topical creams and oral antibiotics. Dr Shainhouse will help devise your best treatment plan. If you do have residual scarring, various treatment modalities are available to reduce the redness, pigmentation, bumps and depressions.
