What we treat
Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples and zits. It is among the most common skin problems in the United States, affecting over 50 million people. The term acne can be used to describe a variety of blemishes on the skin ranging in size from very small blackheads, to red bumps, to large cystic lesions, which can be painful and leave scars. Acne can be found all over the body, but is most common on places like the face and back.
Acne is not only unappealing to look at, but it can also cause pain and discomfort. If you suffer from this problem, you will find we offer acne treatment online. Rather than trying to find a store-bought product that actually works, let our team of doctors help you find a real solution to your acne issue.
Negative Effects of Acne
Many people who suffer from acne experienced a decreased self-esteem and self-image. Some people struggle with acne for a few short years while they’re teenagers, while for others, it is a lifelong dilemma. It can be an ongoing, emotionally debilitating problem that does not discriminate between gender or race.
As a person ages, issues with acne can become worse. Adults who struggle with this problem often find it difficult to engage in social situations and may even have less success at work, simply because of their issues with self-confidence. We can help. We offer online medical treatment you can rely on and have confidence it will work. This is better than what is offered by any over-the-counter product.
How Does Acne Occur?
Your skin is full of pores, tiny openings that produce oil. When too much oil, dead skin, or bacteria get into your pores, it causes them to clog, causing what we know as acne. Often, acne occurs when people are experiencing hormonal changes because it causes their skin to produce more oil. This is why many teenagers as well as menstruating women have breakouts of acne. However, some people have a hereditary disposition towards acne-prone skin.
Although acne is not life threatening, it can be uncomfortable, sometimes painful, and cause a reduced level of confidence.
Acne comes in several varieties that appear as the following:
– Blackheads: Appear on the surface of the skin where oil and particles that are clogging the pore turn a brownish-
black color at the ends.
– Whiteheads: Appear on the surface of the skin where oil and particles that are clogging the pore turn a white color
at the end.
– Papules: Small, red bumps that are usually slightly raised from the skin.
– Pustules: Small, red bumps on the skin, often slightly raised, that have white pus at their tips.
– Nodules: Painful lumps underneath the surface of the skin
– Cystic lesions: Painful infected lumps underneath the surface of the skin that are filled with pus and often times
worse in nature than nodules.
Treatments for acne range from at-home remedies to prescription medicines.The severity of your acne is what determines which treatment will be most effective. If at-home remedies are not working, you should consult a physician to see what other options are available. Usually, treatments will involve some sort of a face wash and moisturizer regimen, a topical ointment, an oral medication, or a combination.
