Acne Q & A

What is causing my acne?

Acne affects nearly everyone at some point in their lives, and the number of adults with acne continues to grow. In fact, it’s the most common skin condition in the United States. You can get acne at any age if your pores become clogged with bacteria, oils, and layers of dead skin cells. When your pores become clogged and irritated, a cyst appears on your skin as a pimple that’s red and inflamed.

In addition to red bumps, acne can also appear as:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Cysts
  • Nodules

Acne typically appears on your face but may also occur on your neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Aside from causing embarrassment or feelings of self-consciousness, acne sometimes contributes to depression and anxiety. If left untreated, it can also cause permanent scarring to your skin.

How is acne treated?

As with all health and aesthetic matters, Dr. Pabla and Marci Rusk address your concerns from the inside out. They seek to uncover the cause of your acne while also focusing aesthetic treatments on skin care and facial procedures that clear up acne blemishes quickly and reliably, so you can maintain optimal skin health. This multidisciplinary approach to treating your acne can help reduce future breakouts.

The experienced health and aesthetics team tailors treatment methods for your specific skin type, acne condition, and lifestyle. When you work together to understand the causes of your acne and then choose and implement a treatment plan, you’ll get the most effective results.

Your acne treatment options may include:

  • Chemical peels that treat acne-prone skin
  • Laser treatments
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Removing inflammatory foods from your diet

How can I prevent acne?

Once the medical and aesthetic team determines the underlying causes of your acne and gets the outward signs under control, it’s possible to manage it more effectively and potentially prevent future acne breakouts from occurring. As part of your treatment for acne, your aesthetician may also recommend a deep cleansing routine or another individualized skin care regimen you can continue to do at home, so your skin stays as healthy and bright as possible. Taking nutritional supplements and making lifestyle changes may also keep your skin healthy with fewer blemishes.
