Acne Treatment Q & A

What should I know about acne?

Acne is a common inflammatory skin condition. It occurs when your pores fill up with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria, creating blemishes. Acne can develop on any area of the skin but most often affects the face, chest, back, and buttocks.

Acne comes in many forms, including:

  • Pimples
  • Papules
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Nodules 
  • Cysts

You may have acne at any age, but it most often affects adolescents during puberty. The sudden change in hormone levels causes the oil glands to enlarge and produce more oil. 

Women may also have outbreaks due to hormonal changes related to their menstrual cycle and menopause. 

I have mild acne. When should I consider acne treatment?

You should treat any type of acne, whether mild or severe, immediately. Treating your acne now may prevent the blemishes from damaging your skin, causing permanent acne scars.

The team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. provides comprehensive medical services for all ages. The health specialists can create an acne treatment plan for yourself or your teen that improves skin health.

Your provider reviews your medical history and the medications you take. They examine your skin to diagnose acne type and severity to determine the best treatment options. 

What acne treatment can clear up my skin?

No single treatment works for all types of acne. Your provider at Medical Arts Associates P.S. customizes your plan, which may include:

  • Using gentle skin cleansers at home
  • Topical acne lotions
  • Topical antibiotics creams
  • Oral antibiotics
  • Hormone therapy (birth control for women)
  • Isotretinoin (oral medication that shrinks oil glands)

Dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care, Medical Arts Associates P.S. also offers laser treatments for acne. The facial revitalization treatment decreases inflammation of active acne and reduces the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

When can I expect results from acne treatment?

Acne takes some time to clear up. Even with a combination of medical and aesthetic treatments, your blemishes can take several weeks to fade and disappear.

The team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. adjusts your plan to ensure you get the best outcomes.
