We offer the following services:
We treat a wide variety of skin conditions, with acne being one of the most common. Acne spots are formed by clogged hair follicles. The oil glands, which are connected to the hair follicles, naturally secrete a substance called sebum. When the follicles become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, bacteria is able to thrive and infect the area, causing inflammation. Acne spots come in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, cysts, and modules, and it can be extremely troublesome for patients. We offer treatment for acne along with any scars that may be left after the condition has cleared.
