Acne / Isotretinoin

Acne affects millions of Americans of all ages, but can be particularly troublesome in the pediatric population.  We prescribe a wide-variety of treatment regimens for acne including isotretinoin.  Isotretinoin (formerly marketed as Accutane®) is used to treat stubborn acne, or patients with severe inflammation, pain, or scarring caused by acne.  Learn more about acne and isotretinoin here.

Warts / Molluscum

Warts and molluscum are contagious skin growths caused by a virus in the skin.  They are commonly seen in children and teens, though any age may be affected.  Treatment includes both in-office procedures and at-home medications.  Learn more about warts and molluscum here.
