Acne Treatment

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that affect almost everyone at some point. While teenagers are the most prone to acne due to hormonal changes, anyone can experience acne breakouts. These small skin infections are not dangerous, but they can change the appearance of your skin, both temporarily and permanently. At MJR Dermatology, we provide effective acne treatment for our patients of all ages at our clinic in Lawrenceville, GA.

What Is Acne?

Acne or pimples are clogged pores that become infected. The bacteria that live on your skin can cause inflammation if they become trapped inside pores that have excess oil, dirt or dead skin debris. Even if the skin is kept clean, there are other triggers that can result in skin inflammation or acne. Hormones, medications, genetics and other factors can all impact skin acne breakouts on the face, back, shoulders, neck and chest.

The symptoms of acne may be different for everyone. Small “whitehead” pimples are common, along with “blackhead” zits that affect the epidermis of the skin. Most people have mild to moderate acne during their teen and young adult years that can be controlled with basic skin care and OTC products. However, those with severe or cyst acne may need medical dermatology treatment to control their pimple problem.

Treatments for Severe Acne

Cyst acne creates deeper boils in the skin that can lead to pock marks and lasting acne scars. To control this skin infection, there are a few different treatment options available. Since the causes of acne vary, so does the treatment. Dr. Reschly has helped countless patients over the last few decades overcome their acne breakouts with personalized treatment plans. Some of the possible treatments can include:

  • Antibiotic medications (topical or oral)
  • Prescription acne medications (Accutane)
  • Hormone medications
  • Laser therapies
  • Retinoids
  • Medical grade skin care products

Acne treatments are not an overnight fix. They require regular use, and it does take time to overcome severe breakouts, but there are options to improve your skin inflammation. If you want to explore medical treatment for your acne, contact us at MJR Dermatology. We can schedule an acne consultation with our skin specialist at our clinic near Duluth and Gwinnett in Lawrenceville, GA.
