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.

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.


As a physician, I am well aware of the importance and value that a competent, helpful, and pleasant office staff brings to a medical practice. Oak Dermatology in Itasca has such a group. Rachel, the NP who performed the treatment on my face, was professional in all respects and answered all of my questions an concerns

Most recently I have had several appointments with Dr. Jeffery Hsu for improvement on my shingles scars. They are on my face right above my eyebrow and I had been very self-conscious about it. Everyone in the office has been wonderful, friendly and professional. Dr. Hsu is highly rated in the Midwest, and I agree from my experience—from consulting with me about the scar, exploring my options, explaining everything, and performing the procedures … I was very comfortable and confident he could restore my face to what it used to be. The procedures have been quick and easy, and I am LOVING my results. He said I’d need 4-6 treatments, but so far I’ve had 2, things are already a significant improvement to where I’m able to sort of “forget” the scars are there. He’s been able to repigment the skin as well! I’m going for another treatment Wednesday and may even stop at 3 procedures, we’ll see. Very pleased with the quality of work and care. I also see Claire with Diamond glow facials to help with my milia, and she’s great and it works very well. Would highly recommend Oak Dermatology.

After trying to get rid of my acne with over the counter products I decided to try going to a dermatologist. They got me on a routine and my acne is significantly better since I have stuck to it daily.
