Acne Q & A
What Causes Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects your face, back, chest, shoulders,
and arms. Although acne is nonlife threatening, it can lead to scars and emotional distress.

Acne develops when hair follicles or pores become clogged with too much oil and dead skin cells. When this happens, your pores become infected with bacteria and start to swell.

While experts don’t know exactly why some people experience acne and others don’t, flare ups often start after triggers like hormone fluctuations, environmental factors, stressful life events, and certain cosmetic products or medications.

What Does Acne Look Like?

Acne comes in many forms. Your pimples may look like:

  • Whiteheads (red bumps with white peaks)
  • Blackheads (darkened clogged pores)
  • Red bumps
  • Red bumps with pus at the tip
  • Tender or painful pus-filled bumps deep under your skin

If you pick or pop your acne, you could put yourself at risk of leaving permanent acne scars, but with early and adequate treatment at Northstar Dermatology, your skin can clear up with no scars at all.

When Should I Seek Professional Treatment For Acne?

Acne flare ups don’t always call for professional intervention. In fact, you can reduce or alleviate it with home care remedies in many cases. You should visit Northstar Dermatology for treatment if your acne continues to come back or seems to never go away. Beyond a certain age, acne could indicate an underlying medical condition that needs attention, too.

Getting treatment for your acne can ease some of the emotional stress that comes with it. At any age, a bad acne flare up is embarrassing and can take a toll on your confidence.

How Is Acne Treated?
Northstar Dermatology takes a personalized approach when developing a treatment plan. The team takes into consideration each patient’s unique skin type and offers several treatment strategies for your acne.

These individual treatments or a combination can help with severe or persistent cases of acne that don’t respond to gentler care.

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Salicylic acid
  • Oral and topical antibiotics
  • Hormonal treatments
  • Tretinoin
  • Isotretinoin

Your case of acne and triggers are unique, so your Northstar Dermatology dermatologist caters your treatment plan to your lifestyle and needs. They can help you identify your triggers to avoid future flare ups.

Acne is emotionally stressful and less than attractive. If your acne flare up doesn’t go away for good, call Northstar Dermatology or request an appointment online today.
