There are multiple treatments available for both active acne and acne scars. These include topical creams, oral medications, and in-office acne treatments such as chemical peels and lasers. Dermatology Centers of NEPA uses the most innovative and advanced ways to treat your stubborn acne and or acne scarring.


Laser acne treatments have emerged over the last decade as an alternative to more aggressive drug treatments. Laser energy can be used to destroy acne-causing bacteria and to reduce oil production in skin glands—essentially delivering a one-two punch to acne. At Dermatology Centers of NEPA, we use the versatile Cutera Excel V laser system to treat acne vulgaris. The Excel V system contains two hand pieces offering laser therapy at various, specific wavelengths. These wavelengths target bacteria and oil glands, heating them and destroying them. The Excel V can be used to treat active acne sites and to minimize the risk of future acne flares.


Laser Genesis is a non-invasive acne treatment that uses heat to kill acne, and stimulate dermal regeneration to reduce the appearance of scarring, large pores, uneven skin texture, and diffuse redness.

How does it work?
Laser Genesis is a 1064nm laser that uses controlled heat to kill acne causing bacteria while simultaneously treating redness and early scars caused by acne in the skin. It is usually used on the face, and neck.
