Rating 5 C.W. review about Dr. Pental


Dr. Pentel was informative and professional and gave me some skin care suggestions. I could tell right off the bat that she was being honest with her suggestions and knew just what I needed.
Acne Treatment


Acne is a skin condition that affects patients of all ages. Over 20 percent of acne patients are adult women, demonstrating that the condition does not only affect teenagers. This condition can be embarrassing and disfiguring, leaving behind permanent scars that are a constant reminder of past active acne. At The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology, we strive to provide patients with ways of improving and even eliminating their acne to prevent future problems such as scarring and hyperpigmentation while enhancing the skin's natural beauty.

Acne Treatment Jacksonville - Acne Treatment Acne treatment can be supplemented with our Teen Acne Program that offers a consistent, multimodal approach to help achieve clear and smooth skin.

There are many treatment options available for patients who come to our practice with active acne lesions. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, and acne surgery can help unclog pores and improve oily skin. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be improved with facials, peels, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, and laser. Acne scarring can be treated with lasers, fillers, and subcision. In addition, Dr. Mary Pentel at The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology may work with patients to develop a customized skin care program that uses special skin cleansers, toners, and topical medications to control the condition at home between dermatological treatments.

Photodynamic Light Treatment (PDT) with Aminolevulanic Acid (ALA) is an alternative treatment for active acne. ALA is applied and activated by a light or laser source. This causes damage to the sebaceous glands and the bacteria that causes acne. PDT is a well-tolerated and non-invasive treatment with excellent clinical and cosmetic outcomes.

Dr. Mary Pentel is excited to provide patients in the Jacksonville, FL area with a wide range of acne treatment options and encourages patients of all ages to contact her facility to learn more about the various solutions available for active acne and the pigmentation and scarring that can occur afterwards. Contact The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology today to book your consultation appointment. We welcome new patients of all ages into our state-of-the-art dermatological facility for comprehensive skin care solutions.
