Acne is a general term for eruptive skin disease.Acne generally occurs in teenagers and young adults, though it can affect anyone.Many people think that acne is just pimples. But a person who has acne can have any of these blemishes:
- Pustules (what many people call pimples).
Acne can appear on the back, chest, neck, shoulders, upper arms and buttocks.
All cases of acne are not created equal, and neither are all acne treatments. Although all acne has its roots in the same process — hormonal fluctuations that stimulate oil production — not all acne is equally severe and not all cases of acne will respond to the same types of treatments.
Doctors may treat your acne with a procedure that can be performed during an office visit. These treatments include:
- Lasers and other light therapies: These devices reduce the p. acnes bacteria. Dermatologist can determine whether this type of treatment can be helpful.
- Chemical peels: You cannot buy the chemical peels that dermatologists use. Dermatologists use chemical peels to treat 2 types of acne — blackheads and papules.
- Acne removal: Dermatologist may perform a procedure called “drainage and extraction” to remove a large acne cyst. This procedure helps when the cyst does not respond to medicine. It also helps ease the pain and the chance that the cyst will leave a scar. If you absolutely have to get rid of a cyst quickly, dermatologist may inject the cyst with medicine.
