Acne Treatment In Fort Lauderdale, Fl
Broward Dermatologist Offers Personalized Acne Treatments
What is Acne?
Acne is the most common inflammatory skin condition in the world. In America alone, 40 to 50 million people of all ages are suffering from acne. Common among adolescents and teenagers, acne forms from dead skin cell buildup, bacteria, and hormonal changes.
The acne may take various visible forms on the skin. Blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, and cysts may form on any area of the skin but are commonly seen on the forehead, cheeks, jawline, back, chest, and shoulders. Bacteria thrive on oils within the skin, or sebum, causing inflammation, pain, redness, and swelling.
Treatments will vary depending on the cause of acne, severity, and patient concerns. Topical medications, oral medications, extractions, light therapy, and chemical peels are conventional treatments used at Galt Dermatology. Dr. Villacorta will help you to determine which treatment is best for you during your consultation. It is important to note that with acne treatment, the skin may undergo a transitional process, and conditions may get worse before they get better.
Appropriately targeting the acne's cause will help get your skin back under control to give you the freedom to gain your confidence back, minimize the appearance of scarring, and prevent future breakouts. We understand that acne treatment is an ongoing process, and we are committed to providing a personalized treatment plan that works for you.
