Acne Treatment Q&A

What is acne treatment?

Acne treatment at VitalizeMD uses innovative cosmetic procedures to reduce acne and acne scarring, improving the tone and texture of your skin. Acne is a common skin condition that often develops because of genetics or fluctuating hormone levels, but you don’t have to live with it.

 

What are the symptoms of acne?

The common symptoms of acne include:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Tender red bumps
  • Painful lumps
  • Pimples
  • Pus-filled bumps

Acne might appear on your upper back, shoulders, chest, forehead, or face. It may be mild, moderate, or severe and long-lasting when left untreated. Acne commonly causes scarring, and it could make you feel self-conscious.

 

What are the risk factors for acne?

Anyone can develop acne and the exact cause isn’t always clear. However, risk factors for having acne include:

  • Bacteria
  • Inflammation
  • Excess oil production
  • Hormonal changes
  • Family history of acne
  • Pregnancy
  • Being a teenager
  • Greasy or oily substances
  • Eating certain foods

Your risk of getting acne may also increase if cell phones, tight collars, helmets, or other items rub against your skin. 

 

Is acne treatment right for me?

To diagnose acne or its scarring and develop an effective treatment, Dr. Nawab reviews your medical history and symptoms. She examines your skin in areas containing acne or acne scars and asks about your lifestyle, treatment preferences, and desired outcome. Dr. Nawab then develops a personalized acne treatment that matches your needs. 

 

What are my acne treatment options?

Your treatment plan for acne or its scarring may include:

 

Skin care products

Dr. Nawab might suggest you try targeted skin care products to reduce acne and acne scars. She tailors a treatment regimen just for you.

 

Medications

Taking oral or topical medicines is another common treatment for acne. 

 

Diet changes

Changing up your diet to reduce foods or drinks that trigger acne may diminish blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.


Laser treatments

VitalizeMD offers highly effective laser treatments that reduce acne scarring.


Chemical peels

Chemical peels remove outermost skin cell layers using a specialized chemical solution. This treatment causes your body to regenerate new cells and offers the clear, younger-looking, revitalized skin you deserve without surgery or downtime.
