Problem acne can be quite devastating and our Acne Clinic is dedicated to the expedient treatment of Acne. Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, minor lumps or any plugged pores that occur on the body. In general, minor acne will come and go on its own, recurring more frequently in the teen age years. More extreme acne can lead to serious permanent scarring, which is the result of tissue injury. In some cases, acne can continually afflict a person later in life.
Many people are concerned with acne prevention. Acne surgery, injections and medications are available to lessen the severity of outbreaks, and your doctor can recommend changes in habit that may reduce outbreaks. Microdermabrasion can also be effective in treating acne, especially if used in conjunction with prescription medications such as tretinoin. If you do have acne, there are ways to prevent acne scarring. Treating acne inflammation at the onset of the condition will help lessen the severity of the injury to your tissue, which will prevent or lessen scarring. If over-the-counter medication is not working for you, your doctor can prescribe stronger, more intensive medication.
