How we can help.
Around 85% or 40 – 50 million people in America are affected by acne at some time in their lives. Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. Adults can even develop this in their 50s. We help by differentiating the type of acne you may have. Acne vulgaris is the most common type. There are the presence of blackheads & whiteheads. Common breakouts are on the face, chest, shoulders, and back. Mild acne can improve with over-the-counter meds / creams, but we can also provide help with more moderate forms. Prescription grade treatments such as antimicrobial or retinoid creams can be used to treat mild to moderately severe acne. If your acne issues are nodular with connected cysts under the skin, this would be regarded as severe. In this event, we can provide referral to a local dermatology specialist. Based on the type of treatment and severity of your acne, it could take a few weeks to see positive results.
Rosacea features facial redness, which is caused by overactive vessels under the skin that dilate (widen) and cause flushing. This can result in red bumps and pimples. It can be initially mistaken for acne. Rosacea is genetic and can be triggered by stress, spicy foods, alcohol (red wine), even temperature extremes. Over time, rosacea can become worse the longer you wait to treat it. It then becomes more difficult to reduce redness. In some cases, the nose can become swollen from excess tissue development (rhinophyma). If you’ve ever watched TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper, you will have seen some extreme cases of rhinophyma being removed.
