Is acne bad for my skin?

Many teenagers—and adults—struggle with acne. A lot of people associate acne with puberty, the time during which hormones are changing rapidly and the skin begins to develop pimples. However, there are patients of all ages that deal with acne, and treatment is key to reduce the risk of damage to the skin.

Is acne bad for my skin?

Not only is acne unsightly, painful, and bothersome for many patients, it can also be bad for the skin. Acne can leave behind pigmentation issues and scarring that cause patients to experience the aftereffects even after they have effectively treated the problem. The skin’s texture may change permanently, and patients might want to work with a professional to clear their skin and reverse some of this damage.

Acne scars and pigmentation concerns may be improved with the assistance of a dermatologist who offers the following solutions:

  •         Dermal fillers – dermal fillers are gel-like substances that can be injected into deep scars to fill them and smooth the skin’s surface. These are best for patients who have icepick scars.
  •         Microdermabrasion – microdermabrasion can help stimulate the skin’s production of collagen and elastin to add volume and smooth the skin’s overall appearance.
  •         Chemical peels – chemical peels range from mild to aggressive and provide exfoliation of the skin. At the same time, it removes dead skin cells from the upper surface of the skin and ensures a more even complexation and improved skin tone.
  •         Microneedling – with the use of hundreds of tiny needs, the skin can be pierced with a microneedling device that stimulates collagen and elastin during the skin healing response that is triggered. This treatment can smooth skin and reduce the appearance of rolling acne scars left behind on the face.
