At the Westchester Center for Dermatology, we offer effective medical acne treatments that can provide outstanding results. We offer a variety of acne treatments and our team can take the time to find the right treatment for you.

Acne Treatments We Offer

At the Westchester Center for Dermatology, we offer several acne treatments options. Our dermatologist can go over the details of each treatment to help determine the right choice for you.

Topical treatments – These prescription topical treatments are designed to kill the bacteria on the skin that cause acne to form. These lotions and topicals are applied directly to the skin.

Antibiotics – Capable of eliminating bacteria that cause acne and reducing inflammation, these prescriptions medications can provide noticeable results.

Chemical peels – A carefully crafted solution of chemicals that can be applied directly to the surface of the skin. Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and can treat acne along with a variety of other skin concerns.

Laser skin resurfacing – This laser treatment uses focused laser energy to heat and vaporize the surface layers of skin and allows healthy fresh skin to grow in its place.

Photodynamic blue light therapy – A non-invasive light-based treatment that can target and destroy the bacteria that causes acne which can help to reduce breakouts.
