What Acne Treatment Is Best for You?

How acne treatment from your dermatologist in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, can help you enjoy clear skin

Acne can make you want to hide. The bumps and blemishes can make you self-conscious. Acne is unsightly, and it can be painful. Fortunately, no matter what type of acne you have, your dermatologist has the acne treatment you need.

Dr. Will Richardson at Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics in Fort Lauderdale, FL, provides a wide range of dermatology services, including acne treatment to help you enjoy clear skin.

Acne blemishes can appear in many areas of your body. Blackheads, whiteheads, or cystic acne can show up on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back

When you notice an acne blemish, you may be tempted to pop it or pick at it. Don’t do it! Popping and picking at a blemish can transfer bacteria to other areas, and it can leave ugly acne scars behind.

Visiting your dermatologist is a much better solution to treat acne. Your dermatologist can help determine which acne treatment is best for you. These are some of the most common acne treatments your dermatologist may recommend:

For mild acne, benzoyl peroxide medications can unblock pores, helping to clear up blackheads or whiteheads.

For moderate to severe acne, oral or topical antibiotics kill underlying bacteria which have caused acne breakouts.

For cystic acne, isotretinoin products can clear clogged pores.

Your dermatologist may also recommend laser and light therapy to kill bacteria causing your acne. Your dermatologist has additional ways to treat acne caused by a hormonal imbalance.

If you have acne scarring, your dermatologist can help with that too. Common treatments to fade and diminish acne scarring include chemical peels, laser resurfacing treatments, and microdermabrasion.
