Torrance and Orange County Doctor
Skin is the largest organ of the human body. While it is a acne dermatologist's main objective to treat the skin and stop acne in its tracks through products and treatments, there are acne scar treatment options for patients with acne scars. Skin care expert, Dr. Bandy of Torrance and Orange County, can help determine the most effective acne treatments available for you.
To start, it is imperative for anyone either suffering from acne, or trying to prevent it to adopt a good skin care regimen. It is best for a patient to thoroughly cleanse the face 2 times a day, use an astringent and treat the affected areas with topical treatments and or prescription medications. The effectiveness of dermatology products may vary among individuals, because individuals' skin may respond differently.
Acne Treatment Products
Many of the acne products recommended are formulated specifically for skin prone to acne breakouts and may include ingredients such as: Benzyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Sulfur.
Acne Antibiotics Treatment
Products specially formulated to treat acne do so in a variety of ways, including antibiotics that kill the bacteria that can cause acne inflammation, removing excess oils from the skin, accelerating the growth of new skin cells and/or removing present dead skin cells that can help to clog pores and create an acne inflammatory response. These main ingredients are available in a variety of strengths, with the strongest of the ingredients being present in products available at physician’s offices or as prescription medications.
Acne Laser Treatment
Another effective acne treatment may be the a light laser treatment called a "buff and shine". This acne laser treatment can be performed in Dr. Bandy's Newport Beach office or Torrance office.
Acne is one of the skin challenges in life that does not discriminate! Whether as a teen or adult, male or female or even those with good genetics, acne seems to seek out and wreak havoc on skin. Some people might be blessed enough to experience acne only during changes in hormones (puberty and pregnancy), while other less fortunate people may experience a lifetime battling cystic acne and severe acne that can cover large portions of the face, chest, or upper back, can be painful or red and can even leave long term scarring and indentations. Further, women during pregnancy may experience adult acne due to hormonal changes.
It is most beneficial to seek the guidance of a physician that specializes in acne prevention, acne treatment, and acne scarring to better determine what your best acne treatment options would be. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bandy can help individuals find the best acne treatment options available.
