Dr. Schweiger advises In Style Magazine how to deal with common skin issues.

The Gripe: Stubborn Acne

Pro fix: Photodynamic Therapy, which involves putting a medicine called Levulan on your face and exposing it to a blue light for 15 minutes. “It kills acne-causing bacteria and shrinks oil glands,” says N.Y.C. dermatologist Eric Schweiger. ($350 per session; four sessions for optimal results.)

The Gripe: Fuzzy Facial hair

Pro fix: Laser hair removal remains the gold standard, says Schweiger “We’re finding that we can use lower energies of the hair-reducing laser, making the process less painful but still very effective.” ($300 per session; five sessions for best results.)
