Our dermatologists can help you get your acne under control.

Acne is incredibly common. In fact, most people will deal with breakouts at some point during their lifetime; however, it’s important to know when your at-home skincare isn’t cutting it and it’s time to see a doctor. Here at Atlanta Center for Dermatologic Diseases, PC, in Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, and Cumming, GA, your dermatologists can create an acne treatment plan that is specially tailored to you and your skincare needs. So, is it time to turn to a dermatologist? It might be if:
 
You’ve never had acne before
While you may think those little red bumps are acne, you may be surprised that learn that there are a variety of skin disorders such as rosacea or folliculitis that can also produce little pimple-like bumps. Therefore, it’s important that a dermatologist examine your skin to determine if it’s acne or something else. The last thing you want to do is waste time with treatments that won't actually work.
 
Your acne isn’t responding to acne products
So, you’ve been trying some over-the-counter acne-fighting cleansers, but aren’t noticing results or the results are wearing off. Although it can take about three months to determine whether a product is actually effective or not, if you’ve been trying every OTC acne treatment under the sun and your acne isn’t responding (or is becoming worse), then it’s time to visit one of our offices in Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, or Cumming, GA.
 
Your acne is inflamed, painful and severe
If you are dealing with painful nodules and cysts this is a more serious form of acne that will require a more aggressive treatment that you won’t find over-the-counter. Since this form of acne is prone to scarring, our dermatologists can work with you to find the right treatment options and medications to use to get your inflammatory, cystic acne under control.
