Best Acne Treatments from
Metropolitan Skin Clinic
Both adolescents and adults can suffer from acne breakouts, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Metropolitan offers acne treatment options to help heal and clear your skin of clogged pores as well as smooth the appearance of acne scars.
We know skin
One of the most common types of acne, comedonal acne occurs when your skin produces an overabundance of sebum, an oily skin secretion. Mixed with dead skin cells and other impurities, this will clog pores and result in whitehead and blackhead breakouts around the forehead, nose, and chin areas.
When bacteria infects a clogged pore, it can cause inflammation as your body’s immune system tries to fight off the bacteria. With inflammatory acne, you will most likely see swelling and redness of the existing blackheads and whiteheads.
Cystic acne is the most painful and serious form of acne, and can result in permanent scarring. It occurs when oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells get trapped in pores, causing a cyst to form. It is common in teens and those with very oily skin or hormonal imbalances.

Frequently Asked Questions About Acne Treatment
How to choose the right acne treatment?
There are a few factors that determine which acne treatment is right for you and your skin including the congestion level, how inflamed the skin is currently, and how many active breakouts there are. Don’t worry, our team will advise you on the best treatments for your difficult acne.
Is acne genetic?
Though there is no acne gene, genetics do often play a role in the development of acne. Acne can run in families and there are some hormonal genetic diseases that cause acne. Other common causes are lifestyle causes like smoking, your activity level (perspiration), diet and allergies to foods or topical products.
What is the best acne spot treatment?
At Metropolitan Skin Clinic, we recommend the Foreverclear BBL Acne Treatment which we perform once a week over the course of six weeks. This treatment will help take care of your acne to give you clear, healthy skin. To control breakouts we recommend regular Platinum HydraFacials every 4-8 weeks and following a regular skin care regimen which we can create for you after a consultation.
