Acne formation is due to a number of factors, which is why effective treatment requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Hormonal imbalances like thyroid hormone, testosterone, estrogen, inherited skin types and conditions and environmental factors all contribute to acne formation. That's why there's not one approach or treatment that fits all patients. Treating acne requires a comprehensive medical evaluation and tailored therapy. Medical treatments include lasers, aggressive chemical peels, microdermabrasion, oral or topical antibiotics and medical-grade skin cleansers and toners. The cost depends on the treatment plan and ranges from $100 to $1,000. Patient education is an integral part of acne treatment. Start the learning process with Beverly Hills Physicians - they provide complimentary skin evaluations.
