Acne Q & A

 

What is acne?

Acne occurs when your skin’s pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. It predominantly affects the face, chest, and back. You can develop acne at any age, but it most often occurs during the teen years.

Acne blemishes include:

  • Blackheads 
  • Whiteheads
  • Pimples
  • Small or large red, tender, or painful bumps
  • Cystic lesions

Hormones, stress, and certain medications may trigger or worsen your acne. Diet choices also affect skin health and may contribute to your breakouts.

When should I seek medical help for my acne?

If your acne is mild, you may be able to clear up your blemishes with over-the-counter therapies containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. If your acne is moderate to severe, you should seek medical help from the experts at Associated Dermatologists.

Professional treatment from the team may help clear up your blemishes and prevent long-term side effects such as acne scars. 

What happens during an acne consultation?

The team at Associated Dermatologists takes a personalized approach to care. When you come in to discuss your acne and treatment options, they spend time talking to you about your skin and your concerns so they can develop the most effective treatment plan.

During your consultation, the team also reviews your medical history, family history, and the types of medications and supplements you take. They also closely examine your skin and blemishes.
