Acne

Description
Acne is one of the most common skin diseases and affects 80% of the population. Acne is the term used for blocked pores resulting in black heads, whiteheads, cysts, lumps and nodules that usually occur on face, back and shoulders.

Teenagers are usually affected, but age is not a factor, as many adults have acne as well. If proper treatment is not instituted, acne can be devastating and can leave permanent scars. Acne is a treatable condition.

Treatments Available
The earlier you treat your acne, the better the prognosis. There are many different kinds of acne treatments available. Acne treatment is individualized for all patients and treatments will vary. Acne scars can be prevented. If acne scars form, they can be improved and minimized by lasers, microdermabrasion, fillers and Sculptra.
