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 in Boston, along with acne scars. Our experienced providers 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 one of the most comprehensive practices in  Massachusetts when it comes to available options for acne treatment. However, we are currently not offering Sebacia acne laser treatment for patients at the moment.

Our experienced and skilled aesthetician also offers a medical cleansing facial, and chemical peels to help acne-prone skin.
