Best Skin Care Treatment for Your Acne

Acne can make a person’s life miserable. And these days, due to harsh environmental factors, adults are experiencing a severe resurgence of acne vulgaris. Our expert NYC Dermatologists say “it’s time to fight back” with our hypothermic Inflammo-Freeze™ therapies that stop blemishes in their tracks. Then, attack the bacteria that cause acne with a powerful blast of energy from our 595nm laser. Finally, seal in results with a gentle take-home weekly chemical peel to keep your skin healthy and protected.

Liquid nitrogen is sprayed onto the affected area for a freezing effect that results in the death of acne-causing bacteria. The dermatologic procedure is a popular choice for patients at our New York offices!


This is a two-step process that involves the application of ALA, a solution of 5-aminolevulinic acid.  ALA is a medication that increases your skin’s sensitivity to light. When used to treat acne, the ALA is kept on the skin for a period of time ranging from 15 to 60 minutes. The length of time depends on the severity of the acne and the desired results.

Step two involves treating the skin with dermatologic light therapy (PDT). Blue light works by killing acne-causing bacteria. The ALA increases sensitivity to light, magnifying its intensity and resulting in quicker, more noticeable effects. This extremely safe treatment can clear acne for 6-12 months, especially if followed by a prescribed maintenance regimen from our NYC dermatologists.

We lead the fight against acne scars in NYC. We like to top off this treatment with a take-home NYC dermatology chemical peel to ensure longer lasting results… say goodbye to stubborn acne!
