Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting both adults and children across the world. Most of us think acne is something that’s exclusive to our teenage years, but in reality, acne issues are just as common in adults as thy are in teens – with nearly 50% of the world dealing with some form of acne.
Different Types of Acne
An important thing for patients to understand is that not every case of acne is the same, and depending upon your specific symptoms, acne issues aren’t always made the same. Therefore, in order to properly treat patients for their acne issues, we must first schedule a skincare consultation. During you consultation, we will carefully examine your acne and determine the proper course of treatment for you. This process may also require some trial and error, using multiple different methods of treatment.
Acne Treatment Options
At the Skin Center we can offer a variety of different acne treatment options – common methods include:
This can be topical creams, lotions, cleansers, scrubs, toners, or soaps. Most of these topicals are meant to reduce the presence of oil, and exfoliate the skin of dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt, & debris. Many topical creams and lotions contain medicated substances such as retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, or salicylic acid.
Procedures & Treatments
One of the best means of treating your acne is through skincare procedures performed by your dermatologist. Some of the most common treatments we offer are:
- Chemical Peels – Specially formulated medical-grade peels that can treat moderate to severe acne cases and improve the skin’s overall health and aesthetic appeal.
- Laser Treatments – Laser and light therapy treatments are highly effective for all forms of skincare, especially acne treatment. They can reduce bacteria, as well as resurface your skin – alleviating acne blemishes, & acne scars – while stimulating the production of vital skincare compounds like collagen & elastin. Also causes cellular turnover meaning new skin cells take the place of old, dead skin cells.
Manual Acne Removal
Made famous by online “pimple-poppers”, dermatologists will manually drain and evacuate acne cysts, and pimples – removing the inner pus, dirt, debris, blood, and bacteria.
Our Clients Say
Amazing facial! This is by far the BEST facial treatment in all of NYC. The staff was personable and customized the skin care routine to my skin type. There was a “little bit of everything” from hydration, extractions, cleansing to even the hydaworks machine. I was so relaxed and afterwards my face was glowing. I think I found my forever home for all of my skin care needs. PS -Ask for Cornelia she is so sweet and works her magic! — Review 1
Cornelia was great! Very relaxing facial. There is only one treatment room, so you wait outside before your appointment. The room felt clean, peaceful, and private. She asked me what I wanted out of the facial, walked me through what she was going to do, and then let me enjoy and relax in quiet during the facial. At the end of the treatment she gave me some tips for my skin and said she would be happy to recommend some products they sell, but was not pushy at all about selling things to me, which is always appreciated! — Review 2

I have been coming to Acne Treatment Center for over 4 years! Well Cornelia saved my skin from acne, i was extremely insecure about my dark spots. But with constant visits and the care of her my dark spots have lightened tremendously. Cornelia is so patient and listens to all the problems i had and treated it accordingly.
