What Is Acne?

Acne is among the most common skin conditions in the U.S., impacting around 60 million people every year. While many cases are mild, several patients have it so severely that scarring can happen. Acne normally is a blend of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and small cysts, as well as itchy, red, and swollen areas of the skin. Caused by a mix of clogged pores, dead skin cells, and bacteria, it is most often seen in teenagers but can affect adults well into their 40s. Acne most commonly shows up on the face, chest, and back. To regain a healthier, luminous look, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams at Essential Dermatology Group in Bedford, TX offers numerous treatment options, ranging from in-office procedures to custom at-home cleansing methods and prescription medications.

How Do You Treat Acne?

Certain research shows that store-bought medications do not treat acne efficiently. Dr. Williams provides many treatment options to manage acne and clear its symptoms. For milder cases of acne, prescription drugs like topical creams and cleansers that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, and retinoids might be effective. Additionally, there are oral antibiotics, such as minocycline, doxycycline, or tetracycline that are available. Along with topical and oral medications, laser therapies have also proven to be effective. Not only can laser treatment help cleanse and kill dead skin cells beneath the dermal layer, but it can also reduce redness, scars, and other pigmentation issues linked with acne. Chemical peels and extractions can also help based on the sort of acne you are dealing with.

Dr Williams and his staff are great! My teenage son feels very comfortable seeing him for his acne and we’ve seen great improvement. Dr Williams is very gentle and thorough.

I was nervous about taking my son to a new dermatologist since he hasn't gone in a couple of years. Dr. Williams made us feel at ease. He is very easy to talk to and listens to your concerns. He responded with a good regimen for my son's acne and also took off a suspicious spot on his leg. We will definitely be using Dr. Williams from here on.

Dr Williams is very professional and he's not about too waste your time. I've always had eczema and acne. I went in concerning some new issues that had developed after pregnancy. He's the first doctor to do a biopsy so he knows exactly what's wrong instead of guessing. My arms and face have already started to clear up after 2-3 weeks. He's one of the best!!!

About Us
What is the cause of adult acne?
While acne is generally deemed a teenage problem, many adults might continue to deal with the hormonal changes that trigger acne. Additional elements that can contribute to adult acne are certain medicines (anticonvulsants, steroid drugs) and genetics. For women, the hormone fluctuations experienced during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause may additionally lead to acne flare-ups.
Do I need to avoid using makeup if I have acne?
According to the sensitivity of your skin, certain makeup products might bring on or worsen acne. If you think this is the case, you could try items labeled as "non-comedogenic," indicating that they are specially made with ingredients that will not block the pores of your face.
