Acne Treatment Dermatologist

Are you frustrated with trying countless acne treatments and still seeing blemishes on your skin? You’re not alone!

Acne is a common skin condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age. At Dermatology Solutions, our team of board certified dermatologists are dedicated to helping you find the best acne treatment for your unique needs.  Acne occurs when the skin’s oil glands become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, resulting in breakouts such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, or zits.  Our dermatologist will evaluate your skin’s current condition and develop your treatment plan based on your diagnosis and skin type.  Our goal is to help you achieve clearer, heathier skin!

Discover the Different Types of Acne

From blemishes and breakouts to bumps and pimples, acne is a common skin condition that we all wish to conquer. But did you know that there are actually various types of acne?  In fact, each type of acne comes with its own unique symptoms, appearances, severity, and treatment options. By understanding the specific type of acne you are facing, you can navigate towards a tailored treatment plan that will help you banish your symptoms and be on the road to clearer, radiant skin!


Whiteheads, also known as comedones, develop when hair follicles become clogged with sebum, oil, or dead skin cells. They appear on the surface of the skin as tiny, closed blemishes with whitish “heads”.


Blackheads are like whiteheads as they are caused from oil or dead skin clogging a hair follicle. However, unlike whiteheads that remain closed, blackheads are open at the surface of the skin appearing as small black dots.


Papules occur when there is bacteria, oil, or dead skin cells under the surface of the skin. These contents cause the walls that surround the pore to break down, creating an inflamed or infected lesion. Papules have a pink or red appearance, do not contain pus, and are sensitive to touch.


Pustules can also form when the walls around your pores break down. They are like papules, except pustules contain pus. Pustules appear as small, bulging bumps with a white center with the surrounding skin appearing red and inflamed.


Nodules occur when clogged, swollen or infected pores endure further irritation and grow larger. They occur deep underneath the skin, unlike pustules and papules, and are often very painful. Nodular acne has a flesh colored or red bump appearance.


Cystic acne is one of the largest and most severe forms of acne. Cyst form because of a deep infection within the skin. Cysts are pus-filled lesions with a large, red and inflamed appearance.

Understanding the Causes of Acne

Acne tends to occur in areas with a higher concentration of oil glands, such as the face, chest, back, and shoulders. While acne is caused from skin glands becoming clogged by oil and dead skin cells, there are other factors that can contribute to breakouts.  Some common causes of acne include: Hygienic Habits, Diet, Cosmetic Products, Menstrual Cycle, Stress, Hereditary factors, and certain medications.  To effectively manage and treat breakouts, it is crucial to seek professional guidance, especially if multiple factors contribute to the problem.  Our dermatologists can help you take control of your skin by addressing these underlying triggers.
