Acne in Tucson, AZ
What is Acne?
Acne is among the most widespread skin ailments in the U.S., affecting approximately 60 million people annually. While many cases are mild and can be controlled with medication and a consistent at-home cleaning regimen, many patients have it so severely that scarring may happen. Acne is typically a combination of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and little cysts, and other red, itchy, and inflamed areas of the skin. Caused by a mix of clogged pores, dead skin cells, and bacteria, it is most commonly seen in teens but can affect adults as old as 40. Acne most often shows up on the face, chest, and back. To regain a healthy, glowing look, Dr. Marc I. Epstein and the team at Mountain View Dermatology and Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ offer numerous treatment alternatives, from personalized at-home cleaning methods to prescription drugs and laser treatment.
How do you treat acne?
Research shows that over-the-counter medications often fall short in effectively treating acne. At Mountain View Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer many treatment options to help manage and control acne symptoms, helping you on your path to clearer skin. Depending on the severity of your acne, you might benefit from prescription drugs, such as topical creams and solutions containing active ingredients, like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, and retinoids. For individuals experiencing persistent issues, oral antibiotics, such as minocycline, doxycycline, or tetracycline, could be a valuable part of your treatment regimen. Patients who suffer from severe cases of acne may benefit from Accutane®, a potent type of retinoid medication that can diminish or clear severe acne and discourage new acne scars.
Another promising solution comes in the form of AviClear® laser treatments, which clean and eradicate dead skin cells beneath the dermal layer and diminish redness and pigmentation issues associated with acne. For those with a history of acne, addressing the lingering scars can be a crucial aspect of the healing journey; targeted acne scar treatments could be instrumental in revitalizing your skin. Additionally, we offer chemical peels and extractions, tailoring each treatment to your unique needs to provide the most beneficial results.

Good service and very friendly staff!
Very nice people at Mountain View. Had me in and out and I am already happy with my results!
I have been going to Mountain View Aesthetics since 2018. Rochelle has performed all of my skincare procedures. She does such a thorough job. My skin has never looked better. She explains in detail the difference between all of the procedures they offer. I highly recommend Rochelle.
I have used this business for over 10 years and Shelly is wonderful. I trust her experience with anti-aging lasers and topical applications. She truly cares about her clients.
I would like to thank Dr. Epstein for helping me get my life back. I went first to see him a couple of months ago. I was in desperate need for help for my hands and face, they were so bad I felt like a monster. I had no idea I had a staph infection until he did a culture on me. On the 1st day I went to go see him, oh and btw, I had call left a voicemail and I got in the next day after I had told them it was an emergency. Thank you staff! 💕 Dr. Epstein and Rebecca were both amazing. I was in tears coming in and I left in tears when I came back for a follow up, Dr, Epstein is a miracle worker. My eczema was gone!!! I couldn’t believe it! I can’t say enough about Dr. Epstein and everyone in his office. I will forever be thankful, I can’t express myself enough. This man is truly amazing. If there was 100 stars ⭐️ I’d rant and rave about him and give him 1000 more stars! I am truly blessed to have met Dr Epstein and his staff for taking the time to get me back to myself again. I will always recommend him. Much love to you all and God bless. 💜🙏💕💕💕
