Patients may make appointments directly or by having referrals from their attending physicians.
Most laser- and light-based therapies reach the deeper layers of skin without harming the skin’s surface. Some laser systems are thought to damage the oil (sebaceous) glands, causing them to produce less oil. Other laser and light therapies target Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), the bacterium that causes acne inflammation. These therapies can also improve skin texture and lessen the appearance of scars, so they may be good treatment choices for people with both active acne and acne scars.
We offer Accutane, a form of Vitamin A used to treat severe acne by reducing the amount of oil released by glands in your skin, which helps your skin renew itself more quickly. It is typically used after other treatments have been tried unsuccessfully.
You may have Actinic Keratosis.
