This December, it’s time to treat yourself with care and attention from our dermatological staff.
What is acne?
Acne is a skin condition that causes patients to experience break-outs. These break-outs may leave behind redness, pimples, and even nodules on the skin that can be painful and inflamed. By getting a proper diagnosis of acne and working with a professional to determine the type of acne, patients can then discuss the best treatment options for their unique skin situation.
How is acne treated?
There are a variety of ways in which patients can treat and prevent acne. What works for one patient might not work for another. This is why it is so important to get a proper diagnosis of the type of acne and work with an experienced provider, especially when acne is severe. Below are just a few of the treatment options that might be suggested by our team of professionals at the Skin Center of South Miami:
- Over-the-counter products – many of our patients with mild acne are able to control their condition with OTC creams and topics. Many of these are formulated with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
- Oral prescription medications – for patients with hormonal acne, the use of birth control and other hormone medications can help. Other patients might benefit from antibiotics or stronger acne medications such as Isotretinoin.
- Light and laser treatments – light and laser-based therapies are also beneficial in addressing both inflammatory and non-inflammatory cases of acne. Many of these treat the bacterial infection on the surface of the skin.
- Chemical peels – chemical peels can improve acne and keep the skin healthy and beautiful, providing several benefits for patients who choose to move forward with this particular treatment.
