What Is Acne Treatment?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. It occurs when the hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. At Oak Dermatology, a leader in treating acne from teen acne to hormonal acne, our expert providers can customize acne treatments based on your specific needs.
Acne commonly presents as whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, or cysts (alone or in clusters). The exact cause of acne is not fully understood, but it is thought to be due to a combination of factors, including hormonal imbalances, genetics, and environmental triggers. Through initial examination, we can properly diagnose your acne skin condition in order to prescribe the most effective treatment plan. Treatment plans may include a combination use of topical prescription drugs or medical-grade acne products for daily corrective purposes, as well as laser therapies. Find out more about how we can treat your acne at our Naperville, Itasca, or Joliet, IL office.
What to Expect During Acne Treatment
Oak Dermatology offers many therapy options to control and maintain acne. For less severe cases of acne, prescription medications, such as topical solutions and creams that contain retinoids, salicylic acid, sulfur, and benzoyl peroxide, can help. There are also oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline, minocycline, or doxycycline, that are helpful to use. Depending on what type of acne you have, we may suggest acne facials, chemical peels, radiofrequency microneedling, and/or extractions.
You may qualify for laser therapies at Oak Dermatology. Laser acne treatments have been proven effective in deep cleaning and eliminating bacteria and dead skin cells on your skin. It can also help reduce inflammation and redness linked with acne. There are many opportunities for you to try to get your skin healthy and clear.
One laser therapy is the TheraClear™ treatment, an FDA-approved acne treatment that combines a vacuum suction to remove dirt and oil from the skin and BroadBand Light™, which heats the skin to kill bacteria. Treatments are virtually painless and can be performed on the face, back, and chest.
For better precision, we also have Cutera AviClear™, a device approved by the FDA for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe acne. The laser light from the device selectively targets and suppresses sebaceous glands to eliminate acne at the source, providing long-term solutions to acne for all skin types. Our very own Dr. Ashish Bhatia helped pioneer the AviClear technology.

Not only am I his patient but Oak dermatology is my go to referral for any of my clients looking for a dermatologist office. Nothing but rave reviews and beautiful results.
This was my first visit to Oak Dermatology in Itasca. The office staff was very friendly and competent and the medical staff was very knowledgeable and took time to explain my diagnosis and treatment plan.
I went in to get my skin looked at and didn’t know what to expect. I was taken care of by Rachel Sulfridge and can’t say enough about her. She is attentive and answers every question or concern I had. Never makes you feel like she is rushing to get to another patient or that you are just a number which is so common these days. I highly recommend her if you are visit Oak Dermatology.
