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
"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

I highly recomend this office for all your dermatology needs!"- B. / Google / Jul 25, 2023
"A wonderful experience from the online booking to a welcoming front and back office, to a clear and comprehensible visit with the doctor. I LOVE the Zocdoc booking experience instead of the games that schedulers play with appointments. Feel so lucky to have found this office and will definitely be back for my dermatology needs."- J.D. / ZocDoc / Aug 04, 2023
"Today I was reminded why I've been seeing Dr Yun for 3 years. Work had put me in a time crunch, and not only did Dr Yun come up with a thoughtful plan for my botox request, she brought back up medications she thought would be good for my acne and excoriation, checked in about the mental health concerns that had been exacerbating the latter, and gave suggestions prepping for my upcoming wedding all in TWELVE. MINUTES. I have never waited long, unlike in other popular dermatologist offices, and Dr. Yun never forgets about her comprehensive role of doctor beyond just cosmetic procedures."- K.S. / Google / Sep 15, 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.
