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.Request a Consultation
