How your dermatologists in Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta. and Cumming, GA, can help you get relief from acne
Acne breakouts can be embarrassing, and unfortunately, very common too. It doesn’t matter if you are a teenager or an adult, acne can make you miserable. The good news is, your dermatologist can help. In fact, acne is one of the most common issues dermatologists treat.
The dermatologists of Atlanta Center For Dermatologic Diseases offer comprehensive medical and cosmetic dermatology services, including treatment for acne. They have several convenient office locations in Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and Cumming, GA, to help you get relief from acne.
Acne can take many forms including blackheads, whiteheads, or large, painful, pus-filled cysts. An acne breakout can happen on your face, chest, shoulders, or back. Acne can be caused by an infection in your pores, or an accumulation of excess oil and dead skin which can block your pores. A hormonal imbalance can also cause acne.
If you suffer from acne, and you are waiting for it to go away on its own, you may be waiting a long time. Sometimes when acne does go away, it leaves unpleasant scars behind.
A much better choice is to seek out help from your dermatologist, who is an expert at treating acne. Some of the most common acne treatments include:
- Professional strength benzoyl peroxide products to reduce blocked pores
- Prescription oral and topical antibiotic medications to treat the underlying infection
- Prescription tretinoin medication to unblock clogged up pores
- Extraction of the blemishes using an extraction tool
- Hormone treatments to reduce acne caused by a hormonal issue
