Acne, or acne vulgaris, is a skin problem that starts when oil and dead skin cells clog up your pores. It is often called blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, or zits. A mild form of acne is when you see a few red spots or pimples usually on your face. Severe acne can include hundreds of pimples that can cover the face, neck, chest, and back. It can also be larger, solid, red lumps that are painful (cysts).
 
Acne may be very common, but it’s still extremely unpleasant for many patients. The medical name for this condition is acne vulgaris, but you may call your skin problems blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or zits. With mild acne, a patient will just have a few pimples here and there, usually on the face. However, in severe cases, a patient may have hundreds of pimples on the face, neck, back, and chest.

If you struggle with acne, you can take steps to heal. Contact Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists in Southern California to speak with a skin doctor. We’ll offer treatments to help, including face washes and creams, oral medications, and acne surgery if necessary.
 
 
 
Cure Your Acne
Most people experience acne in their teens, and many outgrow it when they reach adulthood. However, acne can and does affect many adults as well.

Pimples form when excess oil and dead skin cells clog pores in your skin, trapping germs inside with them. When your body’s immune system finds the germs, it reacts by making the area red, swollen, and filled with pus to fight the germs off. If the infection becomes severe, it can become a cyst, meaning the pimple becomes large, deep, and painful. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist immediately if you think you have a cyst.
 
 
 
Most acne is very treatable. The first step is to try to get rid of extra oil and grease on your skin. Look for face washes and cosmetics that say they are “non-comedogenic,” which means they won’t clog your pores. Wash your face once or twice a day, being gentle so you don’t aggravate your skin. If you don’t see any improvement in three months, contact Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists.

We’ll offer stronger solutions for your acne, including skin creams and oral medications. If your acne proves to be very stubborn or leaves scars, we can offer acne surgery to get rid of the problem entirely and return your skin to its original state.
