What is Acne?

An inflammatory skin condition that affects teenagers and adults alike, acne typically appears in the face, shoulders, chest and back.

National Acne Awareness Month occurs each June, giving dermatologists and other healthcare providers an opportunity to provide patients with more information on how they can best treat their acne.

How Can Acne Be Treated?

There are a wide variety of treatments for acne, including:

  • Topical creams
  • Oral medications
  • Medical facials
  • HydraFacials and peels

Here at Western New York Dermatology and Healthy Complexions Spa, our team of certified dermatologists and physicians will work with you to find an individualized treatment plan to fight your acne.

One of the most popular spa treatments we offer is the HydraFacial. This multi-step treatment cleanses, exfoliates and extracts to remove dead skin cells and impurities without stripping your skin of the vital nutrients it needs.

With two options available – the HydraFacial MD and the Teen HydraFacial – we are able to promote healthy, glowing skin in patients of all ages.

How Can The Appearance of Acne Scars Be Reduced?
