Acne Treatments in Manhattan, NYC & Long Island

Acne is one of the most embarrassing skin problems, and it affects children, adolescents and adults. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Craig Baldenhofer, MD, offers safe and effective acne treatments for people who live in Manhattan, New York City and Long Island.

What are Acne Treatments?

Understanding professional acne treatments begins with knowing why you have acne. Contrary to popular belief, acne is not caused by not taking care of your skin. In fact, most people with chronic acne use multiple products to try to control their blemishes. Unfortunately, many of the products that are available through drug stores and department stores only increase the likelihood of developing pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and other types of acne.

What are the Benefits of Acne Treatments?

Your skin develops acne due to a combination of problems. The dead skin cells and dirt on the surface of the skin become embedded in the pores. The cells and dirt then combine with oils to create a thick substance that clogs the pores. This provides a perfect environment for a certain type of bacteria that causes infection and inflammation. The type of acne that you have indicates how deeply the pore is clogged.

Our acne treatments address each facet of the problem so your skin is healthier and more resilient to environmental factors that irritate your skin.

Who is a Good Candidate for Acne Treatments?

We offer several acne treatments for patients of all ages and skin types. The procedures can help with the occasional outbreak or persistent acne.

What Should I Expect from Acne Treatments?

Your personal acne treatment plan will include procedures to reduce irritation and remove impurities from the surface of your skin and pores. Once your acne is well-managed, we will recommend maintenance treatments.

Microneedling and HydraFacial® MD are the two most common acne treatments that are recommended by Dr. Baldenhofer.

Acne indicates that your skin is not healthy, so resolving the problem will take some time. You should adhere to any at-home care that we recommend.

How Much Do Acne Treatments Cost in Manhattan?

Your acne treatment may be covered by medical insurance, and we will review your coverage after your consultation appointment. If the service is not covered, you will be responsible for the entire cost. For your convenience, we offer several payment options, including cash, check and credit card. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
