Acne isn’t just a skin condition – it can be a significant weight on your mind, spirit, and self-esteem. After all, acne can make it tough to leave the house, especially when you’re in the midst of an outbreak.
And if you’re an adult in your twenties or older, acne can make you feel incredibly frustrated; weren’t you supposed to be done with breakouts once you grew out of being a teenager?
At Twin Ports Dermatology, we offer a number of acne treatments that can help you get the clearer skin you’ve been dreaming about. Take a look at our most popular acne treatments, each of which can be tailored to the specific needs of your skin.

Topical Treatments for Acne
Depending on the severity of your acne, we may begin with topical treatments to help calm down existing breakouts. These medical-grade topical treatments can be used and applied at home, making it easier for you to treat acne in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
Your Twin Ports dermatology provider may prescribe a topical prescription alongside another acne treatment, like an oral prescription.
Oral Prescriptions for Acne
Some types of acne can be caused by bacteria, which is why a comprehensive acne treatment may include oral prescriptions, like antibiotics. An oral prescription – especially combined with a topical treatment – can be an effective way to target both existing and future breakouts, meaning your skin can get the chance to clear up.

Skin Peels and Laser Skin Resurfacing
Medical-grade skin peels can help remove the top layers of dermal tissue, where dirt and free radicals can collect to cause acne outbreaks. Regular peels can help minimize acne breakouts, as well as help fade resulting acne scars.
Likewise, laser skin resurfacing can exfoliate away damaged skin layers, leaving behind clearer and younger-looking skin.
The SkinPen is a microneedling device is an FDA-cleared technology that uses small needles to cause microscopic wounds in the skin. This creates an influx of collagen and elastin production, meaning cellular turnover speeds up. As a result, acne breakouts can fade away, giving your skin the chance to clear up and glow.
