Acne can cause emotional and physical skin damage to those that suffer from it. Our philosophy for treating acne is to provide our patients with the best prescription medications and treatments so that acne gets cleared and scarring is minimized. We aim to teach you how to effectively get your acne under control so that prolonged repetitive visits to the doctor are not necessary. Barba Dermatology and Barba Skin Clinic are dedicated to the comprehensive medical management of teenage and adult acne. Together we will get you clear!
What kind of treatment is offered?
You will meet with our experts for a personalized treatment plan directed to treat your specific type of acne while simultaneously paying close attention to the scars and dark spots left behind. We believe that combination therapy leads to quicker results. We use standard medical treatments such as topical medicines and short-term antibiotics, in conjunction with clinical facials, laser treatments and peels that are targeted to treat active acne and the damaging effects such as red spots, dark spots and scarring.
What happens during the initial visit?
During the initial visit a complete medical history is taken, including a detailed history of any previous acne treatments. Skin will be examined in order to assess the extent and severity of the acne and any associated scarring, pigmentation and irritation. An individualized treatment plan will be formulated based on the information gathered and according to your type of acne and skin tolerance. The treatment plan is comprehensive, and consists of cleansers, prescription acne medications, moisturizers, sunscreens, clinical facials, chemical peels and if needed, laser treatments. Barba Skin Clinic Specialists will review your treatment protocol, give you verbal and written instructions, be available to answer all your questions, and see you on a monthly basis for clinical facials and peels. This team-based approach is unparalleled. We set the standard for acne therapies in Miami, by offering a full service clinic where the dermatologist works with medical providers and aestheticians to get you clear.
IMPORTANT: Please bring to your appointment all medicines, cleansers and treatments that you are currently using, and a list of medicines that have worked, as well as those that haven’t.
What about follow-up appointments?
Until the acne is mild and under control, frequent monthly follow-up visits with Barba Dermatology and Barba Skin Clinic providers will be arranged in order to assess compliance, tolerance and efficacy of the treatment. We use a hands-on approach and can provide one or several acne treatment(s) during each follow-up visit, including:
- Blackhead Removal
- Cyst Drainage
- Clinical Facials
- Chemical Peels
- Acne Intralesional Cortisone Injection / Emergency Pimple Injections
- Acne Laser Treatments
- Acne Scar Treatments
Will insurance cover my treatment?
