Acne vulgaris is one of the most common skin disorders encountered by patients. Despite not being a life threatening disease, acne can seriously impact an affected person's life. The new Stanford Dermatology Acne Specialty Clinic focuses on delivering world class dermatologic care to patients with all types of acne.
We understand that not all acne is created equal, and will work with you to design a personalized acne treatment that fits for your acne type, severity and lifestyle. Stanford dermatologists are experts in using topical and systemic acne medications to treat your acne. Our doctors specialize in treating women with hormonal acne, and often work closely with colleagues in Endocrinology and OB/GYN to help treat patients with acne that is associated with the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Acne specialists also collaborate with Dr. S. Tyler Hollmig, Director of Laser and Aesthetic Dermatology at Stanford, to treat acne scarring and dyspigmentation as well as unwanted facial hair that is commonly seen in patients with hormonal acne.
The Stanford Dermatology Acne Specialty Clinic offers the following types of treatment for your acne:
Chemical peels for acne and acne scarring (in association with Dr. Hollmig)
Certain solutions can peel away old skin — revealing a new layer that's often smoother, less wrinkled and more evenly colored.
Stanford Health Care provides comprehensive services to refer and track patients, as well as the latest information and news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs and questions, visit Referring Physicians.
