Acne

Duke dermatologists use the latest therapies to treat all types of acne -- from mild and persistent whiteheads and blackheads, to severe cysts and nodules. We evaluate your condition, determine the most effective treatments, and work with you to prevent future outbreaks. Without treatment, acne can cause dark spots and scarring, and lead to depression and low self-esteem. We help you look and feel your best.

Effective acne care

Teenagers may be well-known sufferers of acne, but this skin condition affects people of all ages. From newborns to adults, acne can be a distressing and persistent skin disorder. If left untreated, acne can cause dark spots and scarring, and seriously impact your mental health. Studies show people with persistent acne may experience depression and low self-esteem.

Acne ranges from mild, non-inflamed lesions -- your doctor may call them comedones -- that include clogged pores and blackheads. More serious acne includes inflamed cysts and nodules. In either case, when over-the-counter skin-care products and medicines are not effective, our experienced dermatologists select from an array of prompt, effective acne treatments, and choose the approach that is right for you. We also offer a variety of procedures that improve your skin’s appearance while reducing scarring.
