As summer approaches, so does all things sweaty and dusty. Summer brings fun times but it also brings a fair share of rashes, acne and breakouts. It’s time to tackle your acne once and for all, especially because June is National Acne Awareness Month. This is an opportunity for dermatologists and other healthcare providers to provide patients with more information on how they can best treat their acne.
What is acne?
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that affects teenagers and adults alike. Acne typically appears in the face, shoulders, chest and back. Although acne isn’t a serious health threat, it can still cause scarring.
How can acne be treated?
- There are several ways to treat acne so scaring doesn’t occur:
- Topical creams
- Oral medications
- Medical facials
- HydraFacials and peels
Our experienced team of certified dermatologists and physicians, here at Western New York Dermatology and Healthy Complexions Spa, will work with you to find an individualized treatment plan to help fight your acne.
We know that everyone’s skin type is different depending on age, diet and lifestyle so we don’t just put you in a “one size fits all” treatment plan. For best results, acne requires a complete treatment regimen whenever possible. We combine prescription treatments with good at home daily skin care regimens to allow patients to reach clearer skin faster and maintain it that way for the future.
We also offer new and innovative treatments to alleviate acne scarring which include laser resurfacing, chemical peels and micro needling.
We want you to have healthy, glowing skin and feel confident this summer.
