Who gets acne?

Acne has the reputation of being something only teenagers deal with. That's simply not true. While acne is most common in teenagers and young adults, the reality is that anyone of nearly any age can experience acne.

What are the causes of acne?

Frustratingly, there are many things that can cause acne. Hormones, excess oil production, and poor or improper skincare are just a few. Narrowing down the cause of your acne is important to treating it correctly, so taking factors like your environment, your lifestyle, and your medical history are important.

What are common treatments for acne?

With acne being such a common condition, it's well-studied with many treatments available. Sometimes the answer is simply narrowing down the right skincare products and routine for your skin and lifestyle. In other cases, you may benefit from procedures like chemical peels, laser or photodynamic therapy, or steroid injection. For others, prescription treatments like oral antibiotics,  or creams are necessary.

Your acne, its causes, and its treatment is unique to you. At Elias Dermatology, we're passionate about coming alongside you and taking the time to create a treatment plan that will work for you.

How long does it take to treat acne?

Sometimes treating acne is as quick and easy as making a simple switch in your routine. In other cases it may take several weeks or months of treatment to see visible improvements. It's important to give any acne treatment you try at least 4 weeks to work properly before deciding it's not right for you.
