At the Acne Center of Houston we treat all types of acne, from mild to severe for both adolescents and adults. Our system is designed to promote clear skin and reduce scarring without prescriptive  medications.

Acne is a mysterious skin disorder, but one thing is for sure – it can be controlled with the right combination of products, used in the correct way. Just as in a clogged drain, the pore must be treated with products that unclog it and kill the acne bacteria.


Our clients trust Dr Shal’s expertise in addressing specific concerns with personalized treatment plans to achieve desired results.

Client Testimonials


Javier Falkenberg

Dr.Shal is unlike any other acne specialist, I came in with breakouts all over my face and the first thing we did was sit down to discuss the root cause for this with regards to diet/other factors medically. Then she designed a very sophisticated facial plan for my skin routine in accordance to my specific facial needs. I’m proud to say that my skin never looked so good until I got aboard with Dr.Shal and followed her specific plan for me. I heavily recommend Dr.Shal to anyone looking for an intelligent caring acne specialist.


I used to fight off 5-10 blemishes every single week and spent thousands on different product that never worked even when I was consistent. I'm in my mid 30's and have battled acne on and off since adolescence. Then I found Dr. Shal and I have maybe 1-2 per month after 3 months and my skin tone is much more even, I hardly wear makeup! I also incorporated diet changes based on a blood test that listed what I was highly sensitive and both in conjunction have changed my world. Dr. Shal really listens and adjusts her approach to make it fit your skin. I highly recommend!

Dr. Shal is very knowledgable and an unlimited source of information for skin care. She really goes above and beyond to help and support her clients. Im very skeptical when it comes to my skin but thanks to Dr. Shal my skin looks and feels soooo much better after the course of treatment and the regimen that she advised me with. I highly recommend her services to anyone with a heartbeat!
