Did you know that acne is one of the most common skin conditions? Acne affects millions or people worldwide. There are several different types of acne: whiteheads, blackheads, inflamed papules, and the deeper firm bumps called cystic acne. Treating acne effectively with a preventative maintenance routine is important to prevent dark spots and scarring that can form from acne lesions. Retinoid medications such as Retin-a creams and oral accutane can help retrain the skin cells to shed properly rather than clogging and making acne bumps. Luckily, dermatologists have many different treatment strategies to improve and clear acne. It takes teamwork on the part of the patient and their dermatologist to develop an individualized plan that is right for you.
