“Clear skin” is one of the top skin health goals that we hear from our patients. Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States and can affect people at nearly any age. Our team of physicians and staff understand that dealing with this condition can be very challenging, painful and sometimes embarrassing. Fortunately, we are here to provide you with solutions and treatments to help you keep acne under control and to help you reach your goal of clear, healthy skin.
Acne is a chronic condition of the skin that can present as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, pustules and, sometimes, cysts. Acne begins when the hair-oil follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin. Bacteria and inflammation are then attracted to the follicle, which results in more prominent, red, swollen and tender acne flare-ups.
The condition can be aggravated by factors including hormones, stress, diet and physical and mechanical stimuli (i.e. overwashing skin).
Our providers are here to provide individualized solutions and treatment plans to help our patients work toward clear skin and more confidence. We offer several treatment options including:
- Topical treatments to easily fit into your skincare routine
- Oral treatments to fight the cause of your acne from the inside out
- Light and laser therapy
- Condition-specific surgery
- Scarring treatments including microneedling and laser
- Other options from the Skin & Laser Center, including specialized chemical peels, HydraFacial and more.
When it comes to managing your skin’s health, it is important to choose an experienced and knowledgeable specialist. To find out more about acne treatment options, schedule an appointment to meet with one of our board-certified dermatologists by calling our office at 313-884-5100
