Acne Facial

Facial Treatment in Philadelphia

Acne facial treatments can create a remarkable improvement in the skin. Extractions can improve the skin's appearance. The most common mistake in facial care is imprecise, incomplete and unprofessional excision of comedones. Medical extraction of comedones is a precise procedure by a trained professional aesthetician. It involves use of a surgical grade extractor to ensure maximum benefit with minimum scarring or injury to surrounding tissue. Care is taken to customize preparation of the skin pre-extraction and appropriately treat the skin post-extraction. Acne facials can be done at 4 to 6 week intervals while undergoing treatment for acne vulgaris.

I like the dermatologist's bed side manner and I get the impression she keeps up with the latest treatment options.

Parking

It is very impressive and comforting the way that Dr. Rignfeil listens to what you say. I also appreciate her "holistic" approach to issues which effect your body.

#42011-05-04 12:13:25

I thought the waiting area was decorated beautifully and made me feel relaxed and at home.

#52021-01-04

Time spent with doctor was longer than expected. Doctor said she liked Retin-A Micro.

#62011-03-30 10:03:23

Was able to get an appointment on the same day. Staff worked deligently to assist with my referral

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

All aspects of care were remarkable--much better than I've encountered elsewhere.

#12021-06-19

Shorter wait

#22021-05-26

was fine

#32020-10-18

I can't think of anything.

#42010-08-25 14:18:06

The only downside is parking!

#52011-11-17 12:08:50

Everything was good

#62011-03-08 15:22:54

I was a bit embarressed by not knowing more information regarding my parents history. I believe it would have been better handled if I were asked to please get more info and then let the dr's office know.

#72021-05-30

I have zero complaints--top notch service from booking of appointment to treatment to checkout.

#82011-07-26 14:19:25

Ask patient if they have any pain before asking them to waiting three weeks for appointment

#92020-06-25

Keeping me from dying of skin cancer would be good (I will behave and do the checks and annual exam to help out!!!)
