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.
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.
Scheduling Professional Treatments
Dr. Joseph C. Galitzin at Skin Care at 5th Ave. offers several acne treatments at his Peachtree City, GA, office serving the Atlanta area. Our team can recommend treatments like laser resurfacing and microneedling, as well as a daily skincare routine to help you achieve and maintain clear, healthy skin.

"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
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 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.
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.
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.
