Having acne breakouts can cause embarrassment and self-esteem issues. Even worse, lasting scars can be left behind as reminders. Whenever you suffer from an acne breakout, there is the risk of long lasting scars. The more severe the breakout is, the greater the risk. We see patients every day who are desperate for a solution to acne. By consulting with your dermatologists At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients and finding solutions to reduce breakouts, minimize the appearance of scars, and improve the health of your skin long term.
Acne treatment is different for everyone
Acne breakouts vary widely from person to person, as does our approach to treatment. For some lucky patients, a few weeks of over the counter solutions can clear the skin. For others there may be a need for higher intensity professional treatments. During your consultation, we perform a thorough evaluation of the skin, gathering all the information necessary to formulate a treatment plan that will work best for your unique situation and skin type.
Our team of dermatologists has decades of combined clinical experience treating acne. The ultimate goal of all forms of acne treatment is to diminish inflammation and unclog pores. Whether we decide to use a topical cream, oral medication, light or laser treatment, we always focus on improving the health of the skin and minimizing scars.
After acne breakouts have cleared, patients may suffer from scarring. Some of these marks can be temporary and last for a short period of time, while others are considered permanent. We also offer chemical peels and microdermabrasion resurfacing treatments as options for reducing acne scars.
