How your dermatologist in Winston Salem, Thomasville, and Kernersville, NC, can help you enjoy clear skin.
Acne is unsightly and can be embarrassing. It can diminish your self-esteem and self-confidence too. Unfortunately, it can affect you at any age, from teenager through adult. The good news is your dermatologist can help clear up this troublesome problem with several effective acne treatments.
Dr. Paul Kostuchenko and the providers at Westgate Dermatology & Laser Center provide comprehensive skincare services and treatments, including acne treatment. They have three convenient office locations in Winston Salem, Thomasville, and Kernersville, NC, to help you enjoy clear skin.
Acne is caused by debris, excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria plugging up your pores. It can also be caused by fluctuating hormones during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Acne blemishes can look different too. They can show up as blackheads, whiteheads, or painful, pus-filled cysts.
If you suffer from mild acne, some over-the-counter treatments containing benzoyl peroxide might be helpful. The best solution to acne is seeking out the expertise of your dermatologist, who can help you find the right acne treatment.
Your dermatologist may recommend:
- Tretinoin medication to unplug pores
- Oral or topical antibiotics to eliminate infection
- Cosmetic procedures to improve texture, scarring and blemishes left behind from acne
- Extraction treatment, helpful with blackheads and whiteheads
- Hormone medications to treat hormone-related acne
If you suffer from acne, you are not alone. In fact, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. You deserve to enjoy clear skin, and finding the right acne treatment from your dermatologist can help.
