Welcome to San Luis Dermatology & Laser Clinic
The San Luis Dermatology and Laser Clinic has been serving the San Luis Obispo area in the person of Dr. Jeffrey Herten since October, 1977. From a one doctor, one nurse, one front office person practice in an 800 square foot office, the clinic has grown into a three physician, and eleven support staff practice in a state-of-the-art 3900 square foot facility.
This very prevalent condition can be devastating for a young person. Our approach is to aggressively treat acne to prevent scarring and to give the patient the confidence of a clear skin as quickly as possible. A fantastic array of treatments are available from creams, lotions, gels, masks that are applied to the skin, to internal medications that shrink the offending sebaceous glands and control the populations of bacteria and yeast that live in the follicle. In severe cases, the miracle drug accutane is used as well as some very effective laser technology.
