Overcoming frustration with over-the-counter treatments

By the time we see many patients for acne or acne scars, they are frustrated with the lack of results from over-the-counter remedies. At our office, there are several different options for treating acne, and for some patients we may recommend a combination of these methods.

Topical Medications

Depending on the severity of the acne, we may recommend a topical medication. Some of the most common are topical antibiotics, retinoids, and azelaic acid. They are usually prescribed in conjunction with other types of treatments and medications.

Oral Medications

There are several different oral medications we can prescribe including antibiotics, isotretinoin, and even birth control pills to treat acne.


This treatment is a form of exfoliation that can improve the tone and texture of the skin while reducing acne breakouts and scars. The small device is moved back and forth along the skin, using tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells.


IPL Photofacial addresses a wide range of skin condition including acne and acne scars. The treatment uses intense pulses of light to target deep into the skin and improve its appearance.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels work by removing the upper layer of skin. Chemical peels are often very effective at improving acne.

Dr. Panagotacos is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend her. She is a talented and caring doctor. She made what could have been a very unpleasant and difficult procedure, seem routine and almost painless. The office is modern and the staff is very pleasant, which adds to the overall high approval rating I would give to this practice.
