Acne is an inflammatory condition of the skin that commonly affects the face, shoulders, chest, and back.
It commonly affects teenagers, but also can occur in adults.
Acne itself can be quite diverse, since there are different types. These range from the early open and closed comedones, or blackheads and whiteheads, respectively, all the way to inflammatory lesions such as papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.
Inflammatory lesions can be painful and lead to significant scarring, so it is very important to treat acne as soon as possible.
There are many different treatments for acne which:
- Include topical creams
- Oral medications (including Accutane)
- Various medical facials
- HydraFacials, and peels
- In women, hormones also exert an influence on acne, so treatment regimens can also target that component.
Here at WNY Dermatology, our board certified dermatologist and team of physician extenders specialize in carefully assessing a patient’s acne and creating an individualized treatment plan for him/her.
For best results, acne requires a complete treatment regimen whenever possible.
