Skincare products only reach the surface of the skin, and cannot always change the skin’s behavior. You may be able to shrink pores and reduce inflammation temporarily, but if you have severe acne, the problem lies deeper within the skin’s surface.

Fortunately, there are several treatments and plastic surgery procedures that can help treat acne and improve your skin’s texture. These treatments include photofacials, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Your doctor at our West Hills Hospital & Medical center facility will help you choose the right acne treatment for your skin.

If you’re frustrated with acne products, consider contacting Dr. Brian Evans to get your acne under control.


Candidates for cosmetic surgery to reduce problems with acne are patients that have consistent acne problems and inflamed skin. If over-the-counter products and a consistent skincare routine have only kept your acne at bay, but you still suffer from persistent acne, you may be an excellent candidate for one of the many acne procedures we offer.

What to Expect

Your doctor will help you decide which procedure is right for you, and they will make sure you understand what will be expected of you after your procedure. You could need anywhere from two days to two or more weeks to fully recover from your acne procedure.
