Acne

ACNE

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages and can be caused by various factors, including the overproduction of oil (sebum) by the skin’s sebaceous glands, clogged hair follicles, and the proliferation of bacteria, particularly Propionibacterium acnes. Hormonal changes, genetics, and lifestyle choices, such as diet and skincare habits, can also contribute to the development of acne.

Here at American Skin Institute, we take a holistic and patient-centric approach to treating acne, aiming not only to manage the current condition but also to prevent future outbreaks. Treatment plans are tailored to the individual’s unique needs, considering factors like skin type, lifestyle, and previous treatments. Treating acne typically involves a personalized and multi-faceted strategy that may include the following:

  • Assessment and Diagnosis: Dermatologists at American Skin Institute will first evaluate the type and severity of your acne to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. This may involve assessing the presence of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules, pustules, or cysts.
  • Topical Treatments: Dermatologists often prescribe topical treatments like benzoyl peroxide, retinoids, or topical antibiotics to help reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and control bacterial growth.
  • Oral Medications: In cases of moderate to severe acne, oral medications such as antibiotics or hormonal therapies may be recommended to address the underlying causes and reduce inflammation.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels can help exfoliate the skin and reduce the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
  • Light Therapies: Advanced procedures like photodynamic therapy (PDT) can be used to target and destroy bacteria, reduce inflammation, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
  • Extraction and Drainage: Dermatologists may perform professional extractions to remove stubborn or painful acne lesions, helping to alleviate discomfort and minimize scarring.
  • Acne Scar Treatments: For individuals with acne scars, American Skin Institute offers various treatments, including laser resurfacing, microneedling, and dermal fillers, to improve skin texture and tone.
  • Skin Care Regimen: Dermatologists may recommend specific skincare products and routines to maintain a healthy complexion and reduce the risk of future breakouts.
