Whether you are a teenager or an adult, there is nothing fun about having acne, is there? Although the condition is not at all dangerous to your health, its negative effects on how you look can be enormous. Here at Advanced Dermatology of San Clemente, we proudly offer acne treatments that are safe, effective, and that produce quick results. There is no doubt that anyone who has ever suffered with acne to any degree has just one goal, and that is to have it go away. Our skincare in Dana Point is committed to helping you achieve that goal.
Acne comes in various types, which include the familiar pimples, but also cysts, blackheads, whiteheads, and nodules, all of which are under the general category of acne. If it is of any consolation, this skin condition is quite common, affecting around 50 million people in America alone. As a matter of fact, it is the single most common skin disorder. Approximately 85% of people have it at some time in their life. Over 40% of teens experience having acne or acne-related scarring. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t just appear on the face. Acne can develop on your neck, shoulders, chest, back, and even your upper arms. That’s what our skincare in Dana Point is committed to: eradicating that acne, wherever it may form. Preventing recurrences is also a priority. We recommend that you avoid cosmetics and sunscreens that are oil-based. You should also not use alcohol-based astringents. Wash your skin twice per day, using warm water and a mild soap. Be gentle, though. Scrubbing only makes skin irritation more likely.
Turn to our skincare in Dana Point to say goodbye to acne. We understand just how frustrating having it can be. Contact us to arrange an examination as the first vital step.
