Acne can be stubborn and hard to treat. We offer a comprehensive approach to clear it up for good.
Acne is a skin condition that affects people of all ages. It causes pimples and can lead to permanent scarring. We treat cystic acne, whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules at our full-service clinic in North Atlanta.
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition where the skin cells do not shed properly. It causes outbreaks of bumps called pimples to appear on the face, neck, back, or chest.
How does it happen?
Acne forms when pores are clogged with an oil called sebum, which causes surrounding hair follicles to swell up, creating blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and deeper lumps such as cysts and nodules.
Acne is very common, especially among teenagers, due to changes in hormone levels. It can also affect women when their hormones are changing — during pregnancy, before menstruation, and if they’re taking birth control pills.
