Acne Q& A

Why do I have acne?

Acne, a common skin condition affecting people of all ages, is primarily caused by the clogging of hair follicles with oil and dead skin cells. This can lead to the development of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. 

Various factors, such as hormonal changes, genetics, and lifestyle choices, can trigger acne. The dermatologists at Derm One work diligently with you to identify the underlying causes of your acne and develop a customized treatment plan. 

What treatments are available for acne?

The dermatologists at Derm One are well-versed in a range of acne treatments that are both safe and effective. Recognizing that there’s no universal solution for acne, they take a personalized approach, tailoring treatments to your specific needs and skin type. Some treatment options may include: 

Topical treatments

The team may prescribe topical creams or gels to reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and promote skin healing.

Oral medications

Oral antibiotics can be prescribed in some cases to target the bacteria responsible for acne.

Advanced therapies

Advanced therapies like chemical peels or laser therapy can be beneficial to healing acne. Chemical peels effectively exfoliate the skin, reducing acne blemishes, while laser treatments address deep-seated acne and improve skin texture.

Lifestyle and skincare advice

In addition to medical treatments, Derm One may offer guidance on lifestyle and skincare changes that complement your unique treatment so you can maintain clear skin over the long term.

What can I expect with acne treatment?

Acne treatment at Derm One begins with a thorough evaluation of your skin and medical history. This assessment enables the dermatologists to create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Based on the assessment, your provider develops a treatment plan.

Once treatment begins, your dermatologist monitors your progress closely through regular follow-up appointments. They will make adjustments, if necessary, to ensure the effectiveness of your treatment. Your provider is readily available to answer questions, provide guidance, and make adjustments to the treatment plan as you progress toward clear skin.
