Many people think that acne is a problem plaguing teenagers, and that once we’re “adults” it ceases to be an issue. Neaman MediSpa treats a number of patients who realize that, unfortunately, that isn’t true. Not only is acne common in adults, but the scars it leaves can also be lifelong. The good news is that there is help for both conditions, but over the counter, treatments are rarely enough.
Acne is a dermatological issue, but because it’s so common (in people of all ages) it’s often not taken seriously. However, there are many types of acne. Some are relatively mild, such as whiteheads. Others are severe, like cystic acne. Severe acne should be treated immediately for pain relief and to minimize the risk of scarring. Still, all acne can hurt self-esteem and lead to scarring. It’s a medical condition that deserves treatment.
There are a number of factors that play a role in acne, including hormone fluctuations and bacteria. Understanding what type of acne you have is foundational, and requires a diagnosis by a dermatologist. The next step is designing an acne treatment plan based on the acne type and your goals. This can range from prescription topical treatments to oral medications.
Simultaneously, steps might need to be taken to reduce scarring. There are many options for this, including laser skin treatments. Minimizing scarring is essential for a person’s self-confidence. Studies have also shown that people with clear skin are generally seen as more attractive, more successful, and naturally have a leg up on the competition whether it’s romantic or professional.
Only a medical professional can determine the best acne scarring treatment for you. It can include chemical peels, a series of laser therapy s11essions, microneedling, and more. What’s important to remember is that there is help and tools available. Start tackling your acne and scarring today by scheduling an appointment with Neaman MediSpa at 844-338-5445.
