Effectively Combat Acne and Acne Scars

Acne doesn't just happen during puberty, but also occurs in adults as a hormone-induced skin disease. Severe acne with a very inflammatory disease course can leave scars if it is not treated.

Adapted therapy by our skin specialists helps relieve inflammation, prevent scar formation and reduce or eliminate existing scars. In our dermatology consultation, we analyze your skin and show you your individual plan to successfully treat acne.

What is acne?

The sebaceous glands are meant to keep our skin supple and protect it from environmental influences. If a gland produces too much oil or becomes blocked, bacteria can collect there – the gland becomes inflamed and a pimple develops. Areas of the skin with a high density of sebaceous glands are affected particularly severely with acne – especially the face, chest and back.

How is it performed?

Our skin experts can help you in two ways.

  • With the treatment of acutely inflamed parts of the skin: It promotes and accelerates healing of inflammation in that the affected sites undergo consistent medical-cosmetic deep-cleaning and receive local anti-inflammatory treatment. Medical treatment can also be provided, as needed.
  • With gentle treatment for acne scars. Here, a broad range of options is available – from surface treatment with the Dermaroller to mechanical and  chemical peels and finally to an individually chosen laser, depending on the type of acne scars.

Is some sort of anesthesia required?

Therapy for acute acne is performed without anesthesia. For the treatment of acne scars, we offer you anesthesia, depending on the method, which ranges from local anesthesia  with a cream to sedation.

For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

Expert tip:

Dr. Konstantin Feise: "Acute acne can only be successfully addressed through repeated, consistent treatment. Acne scars can be made nearly invisible with modern laser procedures."
