Why Choose AAI for Acne Treatment in Homestead
For people living in Homestead, FL there are limited options for acne treatment, especially when it comes to persistent cases of acne.
Unlike general dermatology practices in Homestead, we are the only dermatology practice that focuses solely on acne treatment and we offer extensive experience in the most advanced acne therapies.
The Advanced Acne Institute offers a better approach:
- With our acne telemedicne service, we can treat patients in Homestead from our office without requiring them to leave their house.
- If patients prefer in-office appointments, our office is located nearby in South Miami.
- Because we only treat acne, we are able to focus our attention on the special needs of acne patients and offer treatment options and supportive care that you may not find in a general dermatology office. Click here to learn more.
- We specialize in second opinions and routinely treat patients in Homestead who have seen other doctors without getting better. Many of our patients are people who had nearly given up successfully treating their acne after seeing other providers and we were still able to help them.
