Acne is the most common skin condition, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. If you are one of many people affected by acne, you already know how unsightly, and often painful it can be. Acne can show up as blackheads, whiteheads, or large cystic acne bumps. Acne is caused by clogged pores from oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.
No matter what type of acne blemishes you have, your dermatologist can help. Some common professional treatments for acne include:
- Professional strength benzoyl peroxide medication, which opens up clogged pores
- Tretinoin medication, which can unplug pores clogged with debris
- Oral and topical antibiotics to treat underlying bacteria
- Extracting the blemishes using an extraction tool
Acne can sometimes leave scars behind. Your dermatologist can help with that too. There are a variety of dermatology treatments to minimize the appearance of acne scars so you can enjoy smooth, beautiful skin again. Some common treatments for acne scars include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and more.
