COVID-19 Update: The Dermatology of Institute of Boston, values the health and safety of our patients. Read More about how we are addressing the current situation.

How Is It Treated?

Acne is an exceedingly common condition in both teenagers and adults. Those with acne often suffer from feelings of low self-esteem. At The Dermatology Institute of Boston we specialize in treating acne and acne scars. Our providers are experienced to help patients clear their skin and regain their self-confidence.

There are many acne treatments available today. Some treatments such as washes and gels are available at your local drugstore without a prescription. Other prescription treatments are available from your dermatologist and can include creams, gels, washes and pills. We are also the first in Massachusetts to offer the Sebacia acne laser treatment for patients. This is a state-of-the art treatment performed in our office combining unique gold microparticles and a laser treatment to improve acne. Our experienced and skilled aesthetician also offers a medical cleansing facial and chemical peels to help acne prone skin.

No acne treatment works immediately and it takes weeks to months to see improvement. Sticking to a regime tailored to each individual’s skin needs by one of our professionals is the best path to clearer skin.

In addition to damaging one’s self esteem, acne can cause permanent scarring. We also offer a number of treatments available to minimize acne scarring. Some of the treatments performed at The Dermatology Institute of Boston include: chemical peels, laser treatment, microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and filler injections.
