The Science Behind Acne

As leading dermatologists, we address acne from a medical perspective. We consider the underlying causes, conditions, and skin types that can lead to acne. Below are some common types of acne pimples:



In come cases, self-care using a mild soap or face wash is enough to clear up acne, as well as over the counter medications. In stubborn cases, your provider may recommend prescription topical and oral medication, or other in-office procedures. Below are some of our preventative and post acne treatment options.

Acne Facial
Suited for any skin type, including oily, dehydrated, aging, or combination – a deep cleanse and tone is followed by an exfoliation to polish away impurities, steam is applied prior to extractions, to clear out congestion and reveal a fresh complexion.
AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared device for the treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne, and Dermatology Consultants is one of the first practices to offer this treatment!Learn More

Clear + Brilliant
A gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
Clear Silk
ClearSilk is ideal for first-time laser patients and those who want to maintain a youthful appearance without the recovery time of an ablative resurfacing treatment. Reduces flushing/blushing, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and acne scars for a healthier, more vibrant complexion.
DC Teen Facial
Our teen facial is specifically designed to address the unique needs of our younger patients that are beginning to experience hormonal changes presenting with breakouts, clogged pores and in need of a simple skin care routine that they are able to stay compliant with to maintain that youthful, glowing, healthy appearance that we associate with younger skin.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing
Improves skin imperfections while addressing age spots, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and acne scaring – resurfacing the skin allows new cells to form, providing a smoother, more even tone and texture to the skin.
Frozen C
A cryogenic treatment that safely delivers concentrated, controlled medical-grade cryogen. The pressurized cryogen exfoliates the dead skin while simultaneously stimulating the growth of new cells underneath. This leads to collagen stimulation, tightening of pores, improving pigmentation, and overall facial rejuvenation.

The treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
