Acne Treatment IN

Acne breakouts are troubling – whether it’s persistent blackheads, whiteheads, or cystic acne, it’s hard to feel confident with tell-tale bumps on your skin.

We provide comprehensive acne solutions to soothe breakouts, improve skin tone and texture, and minimize the appearance of scarring.


You don’t have to live with acne! Trust the dermatologists at our offices to create a customized plan of action that clears your skin and allows you to love the way you look, with or without foundation and coverup.

What is Acne?

Acne is a disease of the hair follicles of the face, chest, and back that affects people of all ages. Bacteria do not cause it, although bacteria does play a role in its development. Hormones can play a major factor. Left untreated, acne can cause permanent scarring.

Acne appears on the skin as:

  • Occluded pores (comedones) also known as blackheads or whiteheads
  • Tender red bumps also are known as pimples
  • Pustules
  • Cysts and nodules (deep, often painful pimples)

As a comprehensive medical and cosmetic skin care practice, we offer plenty of ways to treat acne, reduce excess oil production, and kill the bacteria that cause pimples. We believe in creating treatment plans that are unique to each patient; during consultations, we listen closely to your concerns and recommend treatments to correct the specific issues you’re experiencing. Our dermatologists offer gentle topical solutions and advanced skin care to achieve beautiful and clear skin.


It’s unfortunate, but acne knows no age; while teenagers are often affected by breakouts, pimples can persist into patients’ 20s, 30s and beyond. We understand this can be frustrating and discouraging – after a while, aren’t we supposed to leave behind the struggles of puberty and hormonal breakouts?

Our Collegeville and Villanova acne specialists understand that adults struggling with acne want to look mature, professional, and confident, which is why we offer a variety of acne-slaying treatments.

Depending on your needs, we may attack your acne with prescription topical and oral medications, hormone modifying medications or potentially progress to a more aggressive treatment commonly called Accutane. Often, we need a combination of approaches to get your breakouts under control, such as:

  • Topical Acne Facials and Aesthetician Services
  • Light Therapy for Acne Breakouts
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
