Offering the Most Effective Acne Treatments Available
Acne is a common and disfiguring skin condition affecting both teenagers and adults. Caused by the clogging and distention of the hair follicles in the skin, acne is characterized by the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, pus filled pimples, and acne cysts, most commonly on the face. Each individual’s acne is unique, and needs a treatment program designed specifically for his or her case. At the skin care center Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, dermatologists Dr. Lin, Dr. Farley-Loftus and Dr. Vuong provide effective acne treatment for patients from Summit, Livingston, Montclair, West Orange and throughout areas near you in northern New Jersey.
Many factors are involved in acne formation. These include hormones, the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, occlusive or greasy skin and hair products, stress, and aggressive washing and friction of the skin. Although there has been no definitive proof that foods such as chocolate worsen acne, the numerous anecdotal reports cannot be discounted. These factors make in-office dermatology treatments for acne and prescription acne medications among the most sought-after of cosmetic procedures and products.
A Customized Acne Treatment for Each Patient
Acne is most common in the teenage years, but can also affect adults. Acne can cause severe emotional distress, physical pain, and lead to permanent scarring. Depending on the severity of the acne, acne treatments for the skin may last several months or be a lifelong process. Fortunately, there are many effective treatments to improve acne, including topical acne treatments, oral medications, laser treatments for acne, Accutane, and chemical peels for acne. Under the guidance of a qualified dermatologist, virtually every case can be effectively treated.
