Acne treatment options and customized treatment plans that work
Acne is a common skin condition that impacts patients of all ages. It is typically associated with teenagers in their adolescent years but can affect children and older adults. This condition can result in the formation of problems such as:
- Blocked/clogged pores
- Skin lesions
- Red, irritated skin
Acne is a condition that can be cleared with the help of a professional in the Naples, Florida, area, which is where Kirsch Dermatology comes into action! With a dermatological evaluation and a discussion with our team, patients can clear their acne and restore their skin’s beautiful texture and tone. Many patients turn to dermatologists when they cannot resolve their condition with over-the-counter acne and skincare products.
