What is an appropriate skin care routine for acne patients in the Plano area?
For patients with acne prone skin, it may be confusing and difficult to determine what can be done to bring the skin back to health and keep it looking great. This is why Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology in the Plano area suggest patients contact them to have a full examination done and determine what skin care routine is best for the condition and health of their skin. By working with a dermatologist on developing a regimen, patients can ensure they are using what is best for their skin’s health while addressing any medical concerns at the same time.
Patients in the area are encouraged to work with the team of DSA Dermatology to start developing a routine based off of their skin analysis. During the first appointment at our practice, we examine the skin and decide the type and texture. For many patients with acne, skin is oily and prone to blemishes and should be handled appropriately to reduce breakouts and address redness and irritation that may also occur.
For many patients with acne, a regimen that includes a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and topical medication is best. Patients want to keep their skin clean to promote better health and reduce the amount of bacteria and oil on the skin’s surface which can contribute to the development of acne. For patients with oily skin, moisturizing seems counterintuitive. However, by keeping the skin hydrated, it will produce less oils to compensate and will therefore improve overall texture and tone. Patients may want to use face washes with certain ingredients including benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

With an effective, regular, and consist skin care regimen, many patients with concerns such as acne will notice dramatic results within approximately one or two months. Patients can also discuss with their dermatologists the additional improvement of skin by using additional skin care services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and other exfoliating methods to rejuvenate the skin’s health and wellness. The team of DSA Dermatology is here to help and can work with individuals in finding out what is best for their skin type, condition, and any specific concerns they may have.
