What is Acne and Rosacea?
Acne and rosacea are two of the more common skin conditions in the United States. While acne occurs most commonly in teens and young adults, rosacea is most common among middle-aged women with fair skin. Both are sometimes linked to genetics, and those with rosacea are more susceptible to having acne. Acne is most commonly a mixture of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and other red and swollen areas of the skin. Rosacea is most commonly known as a red face but can also occur with red, swollen bumps on the skin similar to acne. Those with rosacea also tend to have issues with their eyes, including dryness and irritation and red, swollen eyelids. Both of these conditions can be managed with the help of Studio City, CA board-certified dermatologists Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun. At Van Dyke Yun Dermatology, so our team can help you treat and manage your acne or rosacea, as well as minimize acne scarring for a face that is as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside.
Acne, Rosacea, and Scarring Reviews
"Even though this clinic didn’t accept my dad’s health insurance, we were willing to bring our dad to be taken care of Dr. Yun because of good reviews about her. My experience when visiting the clinic: The parking is very limited. It has been a couple times I visit this clinic and thankfully, I always find the parking spot. The receptionists are very helpful & friendly.First Impression on the first meeting with Dr. Yun: She is very pleasant to talk with & polite. Even though she’s wearing a face mask, I can tell that she always smiles when she talks and listens. After examining my dad’s skin, we agreed to do biopsy on the dark spot around forehead and his arm, plus cold/Cryotherapy. She surprised knowing that we would pay cash on the treatment. She seriously told us that she would not charge my father on doctor visit. I’ve never expected that she would be so generous to waive 100% fee on doctor visit. We paid cash to other doctors before, but none of them would care on how much we must spend out of the pocket. Dr Yun is totally different. It’s not all about the money (even though money is important), but she is really care about her patients (we can tell from her patients’ reviews). She is a nice doctor inside and out. I’ve never seen such a good doctor like that in my life. Even though she’s knowledgeable, but she’s not arrogant at all. She is patient & considerate. When we were about to leave, she gave us an Aquaphor sample (healing ointment just in case my dad need it). She also informed that she would call me once she received on the biopsy result. Dr. Yun kept her promise. She called me as soon as she received the biopsy result. I was surprised when receiving her phone call because I thought she would ask her assistant or receptionist to call me. I didn’t expect that she would call me on the biopsy result and arranged the schedule for the 2nd visit. She impressed me again with her loyalty as a doctor! On the 2nd visit, my dad went through biopsy again on his arm & his back and cryotherapy. Dr. Yun only charged for a biopsy on my dad’s arm for $250. She didn’t charge my dad on the biopsy on his back, cryotherapy, and doctor visit. Before we left Dr. office, we got a ’goody bag’ from Dr Yun: 4 different samples of sunscreens and an Aquaphor sample. Dr. Yun, we can never thank you enough. Oh, thanks also for spraying the cold stuff on my mom’s neck. Bless your big and generous heart! It’s worth it to find you even though I have to drive for about an hour. I strongly recommend visiting Dr. Yun on dermatology problems. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as her, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. Sorry for the long review. I am so excited and never have enough talking about all of her kindness!"- F.M. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2022
"I’ve seen dermatologists on and off, mainly for acne in Irvine. Now that I moved to LA, I did a lot of research to find a new dermatologist that I could trust and develop a relationship with. I finally landed on this office from seeing great photos and reviews on Yelp.I was a little said to not be able to see Jasmine, but I think my issue was small enough to give their PA Charlotte a chance since I was told she worked with Dr. Yun for several years. And I don’t mind giving other doctors a chance. The staff was great and very kind and professional. And the decor is modern and cute as well.Charlotte was friendly and professional. She immediately figured out what was going on and knew exactly what to do. I think I was in and out in 10 minutes. I was very happy with my visit. And I recently had a follow up visit, and it was also quick and painless as well. I’m confident that my issue will be solved and gone soon. I love that there is a parking lot even if it’s small. My costs was $95 per visit, and I think that’s a very fair price for their expertise and service."- C.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2022
"I was having a prolonged reaction to something and needed to see a dermatologist ASAP. I looked through tons of reviews for various places and had a hell of a time getting in anywhere. I finally came across Van Dyke & Yun Dermatology and I’m so glad I did. I was able to get an appointment within the week. I saw Dr. Yun’s PA and she was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The staff there was welcoming and friendly. I was in and out pretty quickly with some advice to help my reaction, which worked. Would definitely recommend."- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 19, 2022
"I was referred to Dr Yun when her office was near Woodland Hills several years ago. I travel from Ojai to Studio City to maintain my relationship with Dr Yun now as I find her to be the kindest, most talented dermatologist I’ve been lucky enough to find. I’m 63, I’ve had a few! She is patient and kind from skin cancer to micro needling, never upselling, yet keeping me informed always of new products. The staff is very efficient and courteous and runs the office impeccably. I can’t imagine being in anyone else’s hands for my dermatology needs. Do not hesitate to see Dr Yun. Seriously!"- L.M. / Google / Jan 18, 2023
"This is more of a THANK YOU than a simple review.Having suffered with cystic acne beginning in my teens and after years of treatmeants there has never before been such a thoughtful and knowledgeable Doctor that I’ve truly intrusted and valued.Dr Van Dyke’s skills, expertise and great sense of humor was a welcomed relief and very much appreciated. Finally, feeling like I had landed in the right hands at the right time.To the staff at the front desk, I extend my gratititude to you as well. It was and has been nothing but a pleasure. The results of my treatments surpassed my expectations and would highly recommend Dr Van Dyke to anyone who is suffering from skin conditions beyond their control or wanting a refresh/enhancement. THANK YOU again, for the care and patience you extended to me regarding such a sensitive topic, my appearance. And for that you are deserving of a 10 Star rating !"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2023
What Causes Acne and Rosacea and How is It Treated?
Acne flare-ups are most commonly attributed to hormonal changes, such as puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Certain medications, like birth control, as well as a poor diet and anxiety, can lead to acne. Acne scars can become present for those who've had (or have) severe acne. Typically, these scars look bumpy and dented and give off an irregular appearance, even after the acne has faded. Genetics, lack of treatment, and picking or touching your acne can all lead to scars. Similarly to acne, a combination of environmental and genetic factors are likely what causes rosacea. Spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, sun exposure, hot temperatures, anxiety and embarrassment, overexertion, and certain medications are all things that can lead to a rosacea flare-up.
At Van Dyke Yun Dermatology, we can help you treat and manage your acne and rosacea by diagnosing the exact cause of your skin condition. Knowing what causes your skin condition can help us decide how to treat your condition. Some options we may consider are a prescription topical cream, antibiotics, laser treatment using the Alma Opus Plasma™, or something else. In some cases, a combination of treatments may be used. We offer a wide range of treatments at our Studio City, CA office to help smooth and even out the color of your complexion due to acne scarring. Call our office for more information.
