Acne- What Can I Do About My Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people around the world. It is characterized by the appearance of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the face, neck, shoulders, and back. The exact cause of acne is not fully understood, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of factors, including hormonal changes, genetics, and diet.

One of the main causes of acne is an overproduction of oil in the sebaceous glands. This oil, called sebum, can clog the pores, allowing bacteria to grow and causing inflammation. Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, can also lead to acne. Genetics also plays a role in the development of acne, as some people are more prone to developing the condition than others.

There are a variety of treatments available for acne, including over-the-counter creams and gels, prescription medications, and laser therapy. Some common treatments include topical antibiotic creams, topical vitamin- A creams (known as retinols or retinoids), oral antibiotics, anti-hormonal medications, Accutane, chemical peels, and Aviclear laser. AviClear laser is a laser that targets oil glands and suppresses their production of oil; it is considered a safe, non-invasive treatment option for those looking for non-pharmacological treatment options. It is an acne treatment that helps to clear up existing pimples and prevent new ones from forming. It is formulated with salicylic acid and tea tree oil which helps to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and kill bacteria.

It is important to see a dermatologist if you have acne, as they can help to determine the cause of your acne and recommend the most appropriate treatment. A dermatologist can also help to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to your acne, such as hormonal imbalances or autoimmune disorders. Dermatologists at RejuvaDERM can also help you with your acne scarring.
