Acne is not just a problem for teenagers going through the hormonal changes of puberty. It can stay with you or even start fresh into adulthood. Getting acne treatment brings patients a sense of relief by helping them achieve beautiful, healthy skin. Dr. Gerald Bock explains the advantages of acne treatment for patients in Stockton, Lodi, and Elk Grove, CA.
Acne treatment for smoother skin
Preventing acne breakouts helps lessen not only the cosmetic issue of acne but also the possibility of scarring. Patients who do get recurrent acne should seek medical help to control the breakouts and to achieve smoother skin. One advantage of acne treatments is the number of choices. Patients have a range of treatment options to suit their unique needs. Dr. Bock and his team will create a customized treatment plan for your skin type and needs. With advances in medical technology and products, patients notice desirable results after receiving care from a dermatology team. By following a treatment plan, patients can achieve smooth, healthy, glowing skin.
At California Skin & Laser Center, we offer oral medications, including Accutane. For stubborn, severe, or cystic acne, topical medication cannot penetrate deep enough to effectively treat the blemishes. Oral medications work internally to treat the skin. The medication reduces the bacteria responsible for breakouts and decreases inflammation. Accutane shrinks the oil glands in the skin. Less oil on the skin means fewer clogged pores and breakouts.
Advantages of oral medications for acne include:
- Patients achieve effective treatment of facial acne. Many patients notice permanent elimination of acne. If acne does reappear, the breakouts are less intense and less frequent.
- No excisions are needed.
- The skin appears refreshed and youthful giving patients confidence in their daily lives.
Acne can cause problems beyond active breakouts. A crucial part of acne treatment involves remembering to avoid picking at pimples. This minimizes the spread of bacteria and the possibility of scarring.
