Acne Q & A

How do I know my acne requires treatment by a dermatologist?

Over-the-counter treatments for acne can help when you have an occasional breakout or very mild acne, but a dermatologist offers customized treatments that are more effective when acne is more severe. Signs that you might want to see a dermatologist for acne include:

  • Over-the-counter products have stopped working
  • Acne is making you feel self-conscious and unhappy
  • Pimples and pustules are leaving scars
  • Pimples and pustules are sore, and the area around them is swollen and red

Don’t tolerate acne: The dermatologists at McGuiness Dermatology and Aesthetics can help you find relief and a clearer complexion.

 

Where does acne appear?

Acne doesn’t appear just on the face. It can show up on your back, shoulders, neck, upper arms, buttocks, and chest. Pimples aren’t the only sign either. You may have:

  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Papules
  • Cysts
  • Nodules

If you have any or all of these types of acne signs, visit McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics for treatment.

Who gets acne?

Acne is common among teenagers, but they aren’t the only members of the population subject to the skin condition. Women in their 30s, 40s, and 50s are also susceptible, possibly because of hormonal changes. Regardless of your age, the dermatologists at McGuiness Dermatology and Aesthetics understand acne can be incredibly frustrating and do everything to help you achieve clearer skin.

Why should I treat acne?

Don’t let acne just run its course. This could result in dark spots and scarring that lasts much longer than the pimples and pustules. Treating acne can make you feel better about yourself, especially when so many effective and simple solutions are available.

What is the treatment for acne?

The severity and type of your acne inform your provider about which treatment plan is best for you. Not every method of therapy is right for every person, so the doctors at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics do a careful analysis of your skin and the acne’s pattern. In almost all cases, however, acne can be managed and controlled.

Options for treatment include prescription antibiotic topical ointments and creams, and medications that help kill the bacteria aggravating your acne. You may also benefit from in-office light treatments, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, depending on your skin.
