No matter your age or skin type, we offer our patients a

 global approach to treating acne and acne scarring. 

Our primary mission and ultimate goal is to help you achieve clear and healthy skin that last a lifetime.

Our medical providers use a combination of therapies to address current breakouts with a focused approach on the prevention of future flare-ups, that may include chemical peels, and other facial treatments.

We offer multiple modalities, including chemical peels, microneedling and laser treatments to treat acne scarring and hyperpigmentation caused by residual acne scaring.

We treat all types of acne—including teen, adult  (women’s & men's), hormonal, and rosacea acne.

It is important to remember that acne is a complex disease that may have multiple causes.

 This is why we target not only skin problems, but also the lifestyle factors that exacerbate them, such as food, safe skincare, makeup, and birth control

Acne is the medical term for blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and deeper cysts or nodules that can appear on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders.  Acne is a chronic, but very treatable, condition.  Acne affects over 85% of Americans during their lifetime, making it the most common skin disease in the country.  Each acne patient is unique, and we will work closely with you to develop a successful, tailored treatment plan.  We use a combination of different treatments, including prescription medications and a personalized home skin care regimen.

 Acne Clinic Treatments:

Prescription Medications

  • Prescription medications often are essential to your acne regimen, but knowing how to use them and in what combination is critical.

  • Prescription treatment of acne includes topical retinoids together with topical and/or systemic antibiotics, as well as anti-inflammatory agents, and possibly hormonal treatments.  For persistent or more severe acne, oral isotretinoin (Accutane) may be best treatment available.  Isotretinoin requires a course of at least 4-6 months; however, approximately 30% of patients may achieve permanent cure after one course of isotretinoin. 

  • Let us develop a customized treatment plan for you.  Most medications are covered by prescription health plans.

Chemical Peels, Diamond Glow Facials, & Clinical Grade Skincare

  • Chemical peels are a great way to exfoliate, deep clean and unclog pores. Salicylic acid is a common peeling agent that can be very effective for acne, improving redness and inflammation and, at the same time, restoring your glow. Our aesthetic division uses only clinical strength peels from SkinMedica, the Vitality Institute and Glytone. 

  • The Diamond Glow* Facial treatment is a next level skin resurfacing & purifying treatment that uses patented technology to simultaneously extract, exfoliate & infuse the skin with condition specific serums. These treatments have zero social downtime and are appropriate for any age, skin type and may be performed on pregnant or nursing women.

  • Our aesthetic division carries a variety of clinical grade skincare products  to address the different types of acne, their causes, symptoms and side effects. Ada Aesthetic's offers free skin health consultations to help our patients customize  at home healthy skincare regimens. We also offer noncomedogenic, additive & gluten free Jane Iredale makeup in our spa. Ask your Dermatology Associates provider which of our skincare products is best suited for your special needs.

Acne Scarring

  • At Dermatology Associates, we try to prevent scarring by treating your acne as early as possible. Treatment for acne scarring usually requires a variety of treatment modalities, including chemical peels to improve dark and/or red spots and, for deeper scarring, microneedling, radiofrequency treatments, and laser resurfacing.  Dermal fillers also can help soften specific areas.
