What is acne?
Acne is the development of pimples, pustules, and cysts that often start on the face. They might be triggered by poor skin care, hormones, or even genetics. This condition can be difficult for some patients to effectively manage, especially more severe cases that are nonresponsive to traditional treatment options such as over-the-counter washes and topical creams with active ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. However, some cases of acne may be resistant to these treatments and require the assistance of a medical professional such as a dermatologist.
What can Dr. Fredric Stern do to help me with my acne?
First and foremost, it is vital that patients get a definitive diagnosis of their condition. With an evaluation at The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery, he can determine if acne is the cause of the bumps and pimples, then offer a diagnosis on the type of acne present and the severity. Then treatment options are discussed. Some of the more common treatments used for improving skin with acne include:
