Facts About Acne

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.

The Importance of Treating Acne

Effective acne treatment can create a more positive quality of life for patients. Unfortunately, myths about acne can derail successful treatment. One such myth is that acne should simply run its course, since it tends to improve with time. However, failure to treat acne may result in long-term skin problems, such as dark spots and permanent scarring. Another myth is that acne only affects teenagers. The fact is that a growing number of adults, and particularly adult women, experience acne in their 30s, 40s, and beyond.

Obtaining treatment in a timely manner and following your dermatologist’s advice are pivotal factors in achieving positive results.
