Clear Up Your Acne in Savannah, GA
Acne is one of the most frequent skin condition seen by dermatologists at our Savannah, GA office. At Savannah Dermatology Clinic, we examine patients of all ages and offer helpful treatment options to remedy or resolve their health issues. Acne consists of pimples that can appear on the back, chest and the face. Oil glands under the skin (sebaceous glands) produce an oily substance known as sebum leading to acne. This blocks the pores leading to blackheads and whitehead, deeper lumps and milk pimples.
Acne isn’t life threatening, but it can cause scarring. Treatment for acne varies depending on the type and severity of the condition and the patient’s lifestyle, age, and skin type. Some popular acne treatment includes:
- Topical medications
The type of treatment used for acne at Savannah Dermatology Clinic will depend on the severity of the skin condition. Different patients will require different types of treatment as we don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to diagnosing and treating our patients.
Our dermatology team is board-certified meaning you will get the best possible care available for your blemished skin. Acne is treatable and we have great success with a variety of our treatment options. We treat children, teens and adults alike and pride ourselves in helping our patients look and feel better.
Avoid picking or popping pimples as it can lead to scarring or skin damage. In order to reduce inflammation and to speed up the healing process, a corticosteroid injection may be administered directly into the lesions themselves. Our staff will suggest a skin care regimen to follow at home to help remedy the skin condition too.
