What is Acne?

Acne is the most common skin problem in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans every year.

The most common causes of acne are:

  1. Clogged Pores
  2. Increased Oil Production
  3. Bacterial Overgrowth
  4. Disordered Inflammation

The small red bumps, or pimples, that arise from clogged pores can be characterized as blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules, and more. Although these blemishes commonly occur on the face, they can also develop on the neck, upper arms, chest, back, and buttocks.

Blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes can be treated with over-the-counter medications, although results vary. For more severe cases, your Phoenix Dermatologist may prescribe antibiotics, anti-inflammatory treatments, and, in special cases, vitamin A and other treatments. Chemical peels, drainage, and extraction procedures may also be used for the most stubborn acne.

We understand the impact that acne can have, not just on your skin but also on your self-confidence. We promise to work with you to minimize the effects as soon as possible and offer customized solutions that will fit with your busy life.
