Acne Treatment In New Jersey

Acne is a common skin condition typically characterized by the presence of pimples on the face, neck, and upper torso. Caused by clogged pores (usually as the result of excess oil production, bacteria, and/or dead skin cells), it can be painful and cause acne scarring as well as emotional stress. Acne is most prevalent in adolescents, but acne breakouts can occur at any age.

If acne is negatively impacting your quality of life, it’s time to find an effective solution. At Dermatology Institute and Laser Center, our experienced team of doctors takes an innovative and individualized approach to treating acne. We carefully consider each patient’s specific needs, circumstances, and health goals before creating a personalized treatment plan that effectively targets, reduces, and manages acne symptoms.

Acne Symptoms

Every case of acne is unique. From hormonal flare-ups to severe cases that have been ongoing for long periods of time, no two patients experience acne in exactly the same way. That being said, acne symptoms generally involve one or more of the following:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Pustules
  • Papules
  • Nodules
  • Cystic lesions

Acne Treatments We Offer

At Dermatology Institute and Laser Center, we have a wide range of cutting-edge acne treatments at our fingertips. Our team of board-certified dermatologists will custom-tailor your treatment plan based on factors including the severity of your acne, your lifestyle, treatment goals, and more.

Prescription topical treatments are often the first line of defense against milder acne and can come in many forms including solutions, creams, lotions, gels, foams and cleansers. For more serious cases of acne, we can also prescribe oral medications, which specifically target acne caused by excess amounts of bacteria on the skin. In the most severe cases, oral isotretinoin may help reduce acne-induced inflammation and scarring.

Hoping to resolve already-existing acne scars? We offer several skin rejuvenation treatments that can help, including chemical peels, microneedling, laser skin resurfacing, Aerolase treatment, Fraxel laser treatment, and more.

Great staff and Dr’s in this location and also North Bergen. I have a very delicate skin condition (perioral dermatitis) and I remember I went to different Dr’s trying to figure out what I had this rash on my face and no Dr could’ve pinpoint the problem. As soon as Dr.Ross checked me, she pinpointed my problem and gave me a solution. I am so thankful for Dr. Ross and the rest of the staff and Dr’s.

Dr Ros was so thorough and compassionate. She took her time, listening to all of my elderly mom's questions and concerns. It was a delicate situation and Dr. Ros was excellent!! Alex prepped my mom before she saw Dr. Ros. Without Alex's suggestion for my mom to get a body check, the hidden pre-cancerous spot might not have been detected and treated. Thank you for the extra care. Mabel was also part of the excellent team. Thank you. If I could, I would give 10 stars!

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when oil clogs the pores of the skin causing pimples to form. It is typically experienced in areas with the highest oil production, including the face, neck, shoulders, chest and back. Acne most commonly occurs in adolescents, but can also flare up in people of any age. It affects patients from all races, ethnicities, genders, and backgrounds.

In addition to hormones, there are a number of other factors that can contribute to acne, including oil from skin care products, friction and pressure from sports helmets or equipment/backpacks, squeezing or picking at blemishes, and stress. Family history may also play a role, with research showing that genetics can have an impact on your chances of having acne.

Acne exists on a spectrum and manifests differently in every patient. Some common types of acne include:

  • Mild acne
  • Moderate acne
  • Severe acne (nodulocystic acne)
  • Acne conglobata
  • Acne mechanica
