Centreville, VA area dermatologist describes effective acne treatment options
While acne is often thought of as a condition that affects teenagers, it can affect everyone of any age, including children and older adults. This condition can be very embarrassing for patients and cause them to lose self-confidence and self-esteem. Patients in high-powered careers want to look their best, as do teenagers and children who are concerned about how others will treat them because of their condition. The team of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. believe in providing patients a proper diagnosis and treatment options to address active acne, as well as deal with the acne scarring that can sometimes be left behind after acne has been treated.
Patients in and around the Sterling and Centreville, VA area who are dealing with acne need to have a diagnosis made with a dermatological professional. A board certified dermatologist can determine the type of acne present and then develop an appropriate treatment plan for patients.
Acne treatment will vary for each patient, as everyone is different. Most patients who visit our practice have already tried over-the-counter products and have had little to no results in achieving better skin health and wellness. This is when our practice may provide professional-strength topical solutions to help in addressing the unwanted acne on the skin. Patients may even speak to their dermatologist about the best skin care regimen, including cleansers that are appropriate for sensitive skin, toners, and moisturizers. Patients with severe acne may also consider oral antibiotics, Accutane treatment, and regular skin services such as blue light therapy, fractional lasers, and pulsed dye laser technology. By regularly maintaining their skin, patients can help in reducing their acne problems and achieve clearer, more beautiful skin with better texture, tone, and color.
Patients who have struggled with acne are welcome to contact the practice of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. for a proper diagnosis and guidance on how to address acne and reduce breakouts, flare-ups, and other skin concerns that may accompany this condition.
