Man with Acne

Acne Treatment

Acne is often an embarrassing and painful condition that can lead to lasting blemishes in noticeable areas.

Timely treatment can reduce pimples and the risk of scarring.

Skin Care at 5th Ave. serving Greater Atlanta, GA, can determine what you need to achieve clearer skin.

What Causes Acne?

Acne occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil (sebum) and dead skin cells. Acne can take many forms, including whiteheads, blackheads, and cystic lesions.

Hormonal changes, excess sebum production, bacteria, and inflammation can all contribute to the formation of acne.


Treating Acne

over the counter product

Using Over-the-Counter Products

As a first step, many turn to over-the-counter products, typically cleansers and topical creams that contain medications like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and retinoids. For some women, hormonal contraceptives can help clear acne. However, this isn't enough for all patients, and treating acne can be a time-sensitive issue because pimples can lead to scarring.

You're Not Alone

"Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting about 50 million people each year." *According to the American Academy of Dermatology

How Skin Care at 5th Ave. Can Help

Based on your needs, our doctor and medical aestheticians can create a custom acne treatment plan to help you achieve clearer, healthier skin. These plans can involve:


Microdermabrasion involves the use of a special handheld tool that is used to apply microcrystals that remove the outermost layer of skin cells, triggering the growth of new skin tissue. The treatment can reduce acne and acne scars, remove blackheads, and provide a smoother skin texture.

Forever Clear® BBL®

Forever Clear BBL uses a laser to destroy acne-causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and redness, and stimulate the body's healing response. This treatment is a good alternative to expensive topical creams, and medication that contains ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, which can cause irritation in some patients. Forever Clear BBL is fast, comfortable, and non-invasive — with visible results after just one treatment.

PicoSure™ FOCUS™ and Fraxel® Laser Treatments

Our office uses PicoSure™ FOCUS™ and Fraxel® laser treatments to penetrate the skin and trigger the body's natural healing response. The bursts of energy also help to get rid of pigment in the skin to fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation. These lasers also encourage the production of collagen.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling is a treatment that uses small sterilized needles to create small injuries in the skin, triggering the body's healing response and stimulating the production of collagen. This treatment can reduce scars and hyperpigmentation caused by acne. The treatment also has other cosmetic benefits, like smoothing wrinkles and fading age spots.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel exfoliates or removes the outermost layer of skin with the use of a chemical solution. Superficial peels can reduce acne, while deeper chemical peels can reduce acne scars.

It is important to note that these treatments may cause your skin to look red or irritated immediately after each session, but your complexion will gradually improve as your skin heals.

Creating a Custom Acne Treatment Plan

For our patients in Atlanta, Fayetteville, Newnan, and beyond, we can create a custom plan to achieve a clearer, healthier complexion. This can include a combination of our treatments and topical medications to help maintain your results.

How Can I Pay for My Acne Treatment?

Our staff members at Skin Care at 5th Ave. outside of Atlanta, GA, strive to make skincare affordable. That's why our office works with CareCredit®, a third-party lender that allows patients to pay for their acne treatment in affordable monthly installments.
