About Acne Treatment

Regardless of age, many patients suffer from acne. Over 85% of adolescents and young adults are afflicted by acne and to no surprise, it is the most common skin disease treated by physicians. Acne occurs when there is an overabundance of natural bacteria Propionibacterium acnes present in the skin. Inflammation is caused when the bacteria blocks follicles - the blockage moves into the dermis which results in red pumps, pustules and nodules. Treatment may include oral and topical medications, laser treatments, fractional skin resurfacing and chemical peels.

William H. E. Romero, MD, MS, CNS completed his residency training at the New York Medical College and went into private practice in 1988.

The title CNS, which stands for Certified Nutrition Specialist, is granted by the Certification Board for Nutrition Specialists only to those showing proficiency in nutrition through hundreds of hours of training and a comprehensive examination.

Dr. Romero tries very hard to keep abreast of the latest research in obesity, nutrition, behavioral modification and pharmacotherapeutics. Having helped thousands of patients lose weight, he understands the various factors that can lead one to gain excessive weight as to compromise health.
