Acne

A common inflammatory skin condition that occurs when pores become clogged, resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, cysts or red bumps.

What is it?

Acne is among one of the most prevalent skin issues that we address at Mountain State Dermatology. Acne arises when the skin gets blocked with oil, dead skin cells or bacteria, leading to inflamed, red or pus-filled bumps. Hormonal shifts, genetics and specific drugs can also contribute to acne. These blemishes often manifest on the face, neck, chest and back, ranging from mild to severe cases. Our board-certified providers are highly experienced in treating acne for all ages and skin types. 

How is it treated?

Acne may not be a life-threatening condition, but we know it can affect self-confidence and also lead to acne scarring. Our providers offer both medical and cosmetic treatment solutions to help you achieve your desired results. These range from prescription topicals, over-the-counter solutions and oral medications to microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser treatments. Treatment is dependent on your skin type, location of your acne, severity and type of acne. Regardless of the chosen treatment, we can assist in clearing your acne and preventing new outbreaks.


Our board-certified, physician-led teams will determine your specific type of acne and prescribe a solution that best suits your individual needs. Schedule your appointment now to fast-track your journey to clear, blemish-free skin. We are proud to serve our local communities in Bridgeport, Clarksburg, Elkins, Hurricane, Morgantown, Parkersburg, South Charleston and Wheeling, West Virginia; in Waynesburg and Uniontown, Pennsylvania and in Marietta, Ohio.
