Acne occurs when the skin’s pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Acne tends to affect predominantly the face, chest, and back. For mild disease, over-the-counter therapies containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid may suffice. However, for more inflammatory or extensive disease, you should consider an appointment with the physicians of Associated Dermatologists.
Multiple therapies—topical, oral, and physical—are effective in controlling acne. Your physician at Associated Dermatologists will customize a treatment plan that bests suits you and help you achieve clear, unblemished, and acne-free skin.
