Our providers at SkinMD recognize that an outbreak of acne can shake your self-confidence. Painful breakouts, clogged pores, and potentially scarred skin from an inflamed blemish can do more than just skin damage — and anyone can have it. Acne can be a combination of whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, and cysts of all sizes, as well as additional itchy, red, and swollen areas of the skin. Caused by a blend of dead skin cells, bacteria, sebum, and clogged pores, acne most often shows up on the face, torso, and back. To regain a healthier, luminous look, SkinMD can provide numerous therapy choices that range from personalized at-home cleaning methods, prescription drugs, and/or laser treatments. Let's get your skin back to health. No matter how severe you think your acne is, please call and schedule a skin analysis today for your acne. We would be happy to help you love your skin again.
"Dr. Karen Sticka was by far the greatest dermatologist i have ever seen, she listens to my concerns and then proceeded to take care of them to the best of her ability.

Acne "flare-ups" may happen for various medical reasons, such as hormonal changes (especially for women) related to puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. Additionally, certain drugs and medications, stress, anxiety, an unhealthy diet, and more can contribute to acne. When the precise cause of acne is determined by one of our providers, a suitable treatment program will be established.
Symptoms of acne can vary depending on the kind of acne you have and how severe it has progressed on your skin. Blemishes are a typical symptom of acne and present in many diverse forms, such as whiteheads, cysts, pustules, papules, nodules, and blackheads. Every kind of acne ranges from mild (whiteheads or blackheads), moderate (pustules), or severe (cystic acne) and will have to be handled accordingly. Various studies show that acne may also cause psychological symptoms like lowered self-confidence and depression. Other symptoms related to acne are dark spots on the skin and lasting scars.
Certain research indicates that store-bought drugs do not treat acne efficiently. SkinMD offers many therapy alternatives to control and maintain acne and clear up its standard symptoms. For less severe cases of acne, prescription drugs like topical creams and solutions which contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, and retinoids might provide help. Additionally, there are oral antibiotics, such as minocycline, doxycycline, or tetracycline, which are helpful to utilize. Along with oral and topical prescriptions, laser therapies also have proven effective. Not only can laser therapy help cleanse and kill dead skin cells beneath the top skin layer, it can also decrease inflammation along with other pigmentation problems linked with acne. Extractions and chemical peels can also help based on the sort of acne you are treating at SkinMD.
