How Does Dr. Grossman Treat Acne and Scarring?


Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can help quite a bit with acne and scarring. Over the course of multiple treatments, IPL can greatly reduce redness from acne, red and brown acne scars, and can help acne breakouts when combined with Levulan®.


Dr. Grossman can prescribe medical-grade products to help control breakouts. She also has her very own line of skincare that can help to prevent it in the first place and keep your skin glowing and clear. During your consultation, she will evaluate your skin to determine the correct treatment plan for your specific case. 

Dermal Fillers

Certain dermal fillers can help fill the skin under and around acne scarring, which helps lessen the visibility of the scars. Dr. Grossman will inject the filler just underneath the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of scars. The effectiveness of this treatment will depend on the severity of the scarring.

Abstract background

Struggling with acne has been an emotional experience, but after seeing Dr. Grossman, I immediately started feeling and looking better. The IPL laser treatment helped with my acne, scarring, and texture. Absolutely worth it, and Dr. Grossman has been the most generous, caring, and efficient dermatologist I’ve ever met.
