Acne is a condition that affects not only teenagers, but adults of all ages. Men and women can have adult acne and it can be very embarrassing. When patients need more information about acne and other similar skin conditions in the Centreville area, they often seek assistance from a quality dermatological practice. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns.
Our professionals have a lot of information for patients on acne including causes, contributing factors, and treatment options that can help in controlling it when over-the-counter products no longer work. Some patients with mild acne may be able to address it with commercial treatments, but many need professional-grade solutions. There are many methods for addressing acne including cleansers for sensitive skin, special moisturizers to help balance moisture in the skin (instead of adding to already oily skin surfaces), and creams and other topicals that can be applied to help control it. Additionally, patients can have regular treatments done to help combat acne such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or light therapies. Combined, many patients find amazing results in their skin’s health and wellness, as well as appearance.
Patients should not feel embarrassed about seeking help from a dermatologist for their condition. Acne will typically not go away on its own, so getting proper diagnosis and treatment is the first step in achieving a more beautiful appearance. There are several types of acne, and each one responds differently to treatment, so working with our team of professionals will help in finding out what treatment option is best for each individual’s specific situation.
