Attacking Acne

Summer is an excellent time to help clients tackle current blemishes and existing acne scars. Whether they are looking for easy at-home solutions or want the fast, powerful results of in-office protocols, board-certified dermatologist Amy Forman Taub, M.D. has an arsenal of solutions to treat all acne afflictions.

As one of the nation’s top crusader against acne, Taub says knows what really works to restore beautiful, clear skin. Here, she shares some of her trade secrets for clearing up active acne, brightening skin and smoothing lingering scars.


Try: Sublative. Sublative is the latest confidence boosting, skin-smoothing treatment that diminishes the appearance of acne scars and gradually restores a more youthful appearance to skin - targeting lax skin, moderate wrinkles, and loss of radiance.

Try:Omnilux Phototherapy Acne Treatment. Omnilux helps clear acne without anything touching the skin except for painless infrared, blue and red light. Use in combination with topical therapy to avoid oral medications. 

Try: SilkPeel. Touted as the “pre-Oscar facial miracle” by A-list starlets (Katie Couric and the Olson twins are fans), this facial combines high-quality diamond-assisted microdermabrasion to deliver a glowing complexion. When used with Skin Clarifying Pro Infusion Solution, the treatment delivers a salicylic acid formula into skin to exfoliate skin and cleanse the skin of excess sebum and acne-causing bacteria.
