UCLA Dermatology


Acne Clinic

UCLA Acne ClinicAcne vulgaris is one of the most common skin disorders treated by dermatologists. Acne can range in severity from mild disease to more severe and recalcitrant disease, including nodulocystic lesions and lesions on the back and chest. Acne may also lead to significant scarring and dyspigmentation. At the UCLA acne specialty clinic we use a multidisciplinary approach to treat mild, moderate and severe and recalcitrant acne that has failed conventional therapy. We utilize topical and systemic medications, hormone therapy, as well as procedures such as peels, injections, laser and light treatments. We also treat acne scars and dyspigmentation with peels, lasers, surgery and injectable fillers. Our clinic offers innovative and novel treatments and clinical trials for patients. The adult acne clinic is supervised by Dr. Carol Cheng, and the pediatric acne clinic is supervised by Dr. Marcia Hogeling.

Acne clinic is offered every Thursday morning. Dr. Jenny Kim supervises the acne procedure clinic, which occurs on the second Thursday of every month. Though not life threatening, acne can seriously impact the psyche of an affected individual. We approach our patients with compassion, understanding, and an open mind in order to meet our mutual goal of clear and healthy skin.
