Acne Care and Treatment

How your dermatologists in Royal Oak, MI, can help if you have acne.

If you suffer from acne, you are not alone. In fact, acne is one of the most common skin conditions, both for teenagers and adults. The good news is, your dermatologist can help you get control of your acne, so you can enjoy clear skin once again.

The dermatologists at Koger Dermatology in Royal Oak, MI, offer a wide range of dermatology services, including acne treatment.

Acne can break out on your face, neck, chest, back, and other areas. It can look like:

  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads
  • Pus-filled cysts

If you have an acne problem, don’t try to pop or pick at your blemishes, because you may have scars left behind. Waiting for acne to go away by itself may also lead to acne scarring.

Your best choice for getting rid of acne is to visit your dermatologist. Common professional treatments to get rid of acne and clear up your skin include:

Benzoyl peroxide medications which help unblock pores; these medications are an excellent choice if you have blackheads or whiteheads.

Oral or topical antibiotics which kill any underlying bacteria that have caused acne breakouts; antibiotic formulations are an excellent choice to treat moderate to severe acne, or cystic acne.

Isotretinoin products which can help clear up severe acne and cystic acne.

Laser and light therapy which can kill bacteria causing your acne.

Extraction treatment which involves using an extraction tool to remove the entire blemish.

If your acne has left behind unsightly acne scars, don’t worry. Your dermatologist can help fade acne scars, minimizing their appearance. Treatment options to treat acne scarring include:

Chemical peels which slough off dead skin cells and fade scars layer-by-layer; chemical peels reveal vibrant, glowing skin.

Laser resurfacing which penetrates into the deeper layers of skin, revealing smoother, clearer skin.

Don’t let acne lower your self-esteem and self-confidence. You can get control over your acne, and your dermatologist can help.
