What is acne?
Acne is a condition that can be a source of embarrassment for patients of all ages. While many think of acne as something that only happens to teenagers, it can carry into adulthood as well. Acne is caused by bacteria on the skin and results in inflammation in the form of “zits” or “pimples.” These pimples may be filled with puss and can become extremely red and infected. Covering them with cosmetic often worsens the condition and can result in severe acne.
How is acne treated?
Acne is often treated with a variety of solutions. Most patients start with over-the-counter topicals but may find them to provide little to no results. This is the point when patients begin to consider visiting with a dermatologist. Acne can be treated with professional-grade topicals, oral medications, or even procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials. Our team works with patients to help them find an effective treatment for their specific condition which may respond to one solution but not another. Trial and error is sometimes needed to find the best acne care solution for an individual.]
