Dr. Friedman’s Treatment Approach to Acne
Dr. David Friedman, a U.S. and Israel Board Certified Dermatologist, has decades of experience diagnosing and treating different types of teenage and adult acne.
Dr. Friedman’s acne treatments include:
- Topical Prescription Creams – for milder cases of acne
- Accutane – Dr. Friedman treats severe cases of acne with Accutane,
which can be prescribed in Israel without the regulatory requirements of birth-control and pregnancy tests
- Laser Therapy & Oral Antibiotics – this treatment course is generally recommended in a case of severe acne which can not be treated with Accutane (due to pregnancy, depression or other medical contraindication)
At your consultation, Dr. Friedman will also discuss other personal factors which can contribute to your acne which include:
- Cosmetics & Make-Up
- Soap & Cleansers
- Physical Manipulation such as touching and picking the skin
At your consultation, Dr. Friedman will personally assess your acne and then tailor an acne treatment plan for you.
