Acne is just something that teenagers must endure and then grow out of. Right? Oh, if only that were the case.
Adult acne is an issue that up to half of all American adults suffer from. There are many known causes that adults’ skin can break out, and understanding these causes may help to treat those who suffer. Stress, changes in hormone levels, medications, and topical makeups, creams, or lotions can all be related to adult acne.
At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman offers a new level of care for patients with any type of skin conditions and/or diseases. Dr. Weisman is a nationally recognized board-certified Atlanta dermatologist who makes patient centered care her primary focus. While some skin conditions, such as acne, are common, each patient is treated as an individual and will receive customized treatment.
Dr. Weisman and her staff are dedicated to finding the cause of adult acne instead of just treating the symptoms. Many times education of daily skin care is the greatest asset of treating adult acne. Using a gentle cleanser with warm (not hot) water, using a soft washcloth or a cleansing brush, and patting the skin dry can all go a long way in treating and preventing further acne. Dr. Jamie Weisman can also make specific recommendations based on skin type for an appropriate cleanser. While it may seem like a harsh cleanser will kill acne, the opposite, in fact, is true. Harsh cleansers strip the skin and make the vulnerable to over-production of oils.
There are many available prescription cleansers, cosmetics, medications, and treatments available for adults who suffer from acne. At Medical Dermatology Specialists we treat all of our patients as an individual patient the moment they walk through our office doors. Your skin is personal to you, and we offer personalized treatments to help you achieve the results you are seeking.
If you suffer from adult acne, you do not need to suffer any longer. Call Medical Dermatology Specialists today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to providing you with the care and expertise that you are looking for to attain the skin you are dreaming of.Posted on behalf of Dr. Jamie Weisman, Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc.
