What Is Acne
Acne is common skin condition that impacts many people. While it most commonly impacts the face and neck, it can be present on many other areas of the body, such as the back or chest.
The term acne encompasses a variety of blemishes, such as:
- Pustules (pimples)
Each person experiences acne differently, and your personal relationship with the blemishes and how they manifest on your skin can change throughout your life.
When pores become clogged, this often results in acne. Pores typically become clogged because of too much oil on the skin due to the overproduction of oil. When pores produce too much sebum oil, the oil traps in the dead skin cells it naturally tries to remove, creating a clogged pore and ultimately a blemish.
While clogged pores are the ultimate cause of acne, this skin condition can be negatively influenced or impacted by other factors, such as:
- Hormones or hormonal changes
- Oily or greasy substances on the skin
- Pressure or friction on the skin
- Some medications
Understanding what could be affecting your skin is important for figuring out which acne treatments will prove to be the most effective.
While there is no overall cure for acne, there are options available to make the condition more manageable. A solid at-home skincare routine is the foundation for achieving clear skin. Treatment options for better-managing blemishes include medical procedures, prescription acne medications, or topical treatments.
The cost of your acne treatment in New York or Florida will depend on several factors like the type of treatment or medication performed and the number of treatments needed. Price can be discussed during your consultation.
A consultation with our team in New York or Florida can help determine which treatment option could be the best method for you. It is important to have realistic expectations for all treatments as well as remember the results will vary for each person and treatment. Most treatment methods require some time to show the best results.
