Almost everyone deals with the occasional blemish. For some people, acne becomes a long-term battle that can leave scars. You may need to see a dermatologist for your acne if you have not been able to manage it on your own or if it causes problems in your daily life. 

What Causes Acne?

The term “acne” encompasses an assortment of blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and blemishes that occur on the face or body. Excessive oil production, which often occurs in teenagers but can continue throughout life, contributes to acne. Pores clogged with debris and oil make homes for bacteria that cause inflammation. Hormonal changes can also cause acne breakouts.

3 Reasons Why You Should See a Dermatologist for Your Acne

Some people find at-home products that manage their acne successfully. If you have tried these products and continue to deal with acne, you may need to see a Levy Dermatology skin care professional. Here are three signs that acne should have you seeking a dermatologist’s help:

1.At-Home Treatments are Not Working

If you have tried all the topical treatments available and have not seen any relief, your acne may need professional treatment. Not all acne responds to the typical ingredients used in over-the-counter treatments. Your dermatologist has many more options available. 

2.It Leaves Scars

Preventing acne scars is much easier than getting rid of them. If your acne breakouts leave you with a pitted, scarred appearance, you should see a dermatologist as soon as possible. The sooner you can get your acne under control, the less scarring you will have to treat later. 

3.It Holds You Back

If acne breakouts keep you from enjoying your usual activities, a dermatologist can help. Acne can make you reluctant to show your face in social situations, but you can achieve clear skin that makes you feel confident doing everything you love most. 

What is the Best Treatment For Acne?

At Levy Dermatology, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a provider at one of our dermatology offices to help get your breakouts under control. The perfect treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs. This plan may consist of topical medication, oral medication, or medical grade skin care products. 

Once under control, we then recommend DiamondGlow™ skin rejuvenation. This treatment uses microdermabrasion to remove dull outer layers of skin, then extracts dirt and debris from the pores. This leaves the skin prepared to receive acne treatments and deep hydration. This 45-minute treatment leaves your skin clean, refreshed, and glowing. 

Is There Any Downtime With Acne Treatment?

You will not have any downtime after your DiamondGlow™ treatment. You can return to all your usual activities after your session. We recommend sunscreen at all times, but especially after any skin rejuvenation treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Acne Treatment?

Almost everyone can have DiamondGlow™ treatment safely. This gentle 3-in-1 process treats even sensitive or acne-prone skin. Besides keeping your skin clear, DiamondGlow™ can also soften the appearance of acne scarring and uneven skin tone.
