What you need to know about acne treatments

If you have acne, you are not alone. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. You don’t have to suffer from acne because help is just a phone call away. Your dermatologists at Integrated Acne TreatmentDermatology in West Palm Beach, FL want to help you have clear skin once again.

Acne is the result of your pores becoming clogged with bacteria, dead skin cells and excess oil. Your clogged pores come inflamed and swollen. If your pores become infected, you might see pus just underneath the surface of your skin. Acne can appear on your face, chest, shoulders and back. It can appear as blackheads or whiteheads, or large, painful welts. You might have learned that if you just leave them alone, they will go away. Leaving them unattended can be a bad idea because acne can leave scarring as it heals.

You don’t want to just live with acne because it makes you self-conscious about your looks and can lower your self-esteem. A better solution is to seek out the help of your dermatologists at Integrated Dermatology. They can help you with one of several acne treatments designed to clear up infection and resolve your skin issues.

Your West Palm Beach dermatologists at Integrated Dermatology may suggest:

  • Topical and oral antibiotics to treat infected pores
  • Tretinoin to help unplug and clear pores
  • Benzoyl peroxide to reduce pore blockage
  • Extraction to remove blackheads and whiteheads
  • Acne treatments for hormone-related skin issues

The dermatologists at Integrated Dermatology can help you get relief from acne more quickly and completely than using over-the-counter products. So why put up with unsightly painful acne when help is just a phone call away.
