Effective solutions for acne in San Diego

Posted By

Dr. Christopher Crosby gives some effective solutions for acne in San Diego
At the Coastal Skin and Eye Institute, our Board-certified dermatologists see many patients of all ages and genders who are struggling with acne or acne scarring. Many treatment options are readily available in our practice. We want to help patients restore their beautiful, healthy skin. Men and women seeking effective solutions for acne are welcome to book an appointment with our team to discuss the best treatment for their specific needs.

Treatment options

There are many solutions available to patients in the treatment of acne and acne scarring. Some of the more popular options include:

  • Prescription topical medications
  • Oral antibiotics/retinoids
  • Laser therapies
  • Light therapies
  • Dermabrasion
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Dermal fillers

Which treatment is right for me?

It is important for patients to work with a professional to determine which direction they can go in terms of treating their acne. It all starts with an evaluation. After a thorough evaluation, we can provide a proper diagnosis and recommendations. This includes the type of acne present and its severity. Then, treatment options can be discussed. Treatments will vary, depending on the exact diagnosis, and patients need to understand that sometimes, the treatment of acne can be a process. There is no “one size fits all” solution for patients regarding acne or acne scarring, so, it may take time to find the treatment that works best. This trial and error period may require some patience in order to ultimately find what is best for each individual. Additionally, some patients may benefit from a combination of treatments as a more effective approach to treat severe acne.

We welcome new patients in and around the San Diego, California community to the Coastal Skin and Eye Institute.


Actual Patient Review

The best service in my 20 year history of buying eye wear. Had to buy a pair of mid-range glasses for both music and computer use, a tough requirement. Randy provided me just the right amount of information and help to make a great choice that satisfied all my criteria, including price. I could not be happier. Originally posted on
