Acne, even mild cases, can be devastating to anyone at any age. The face is the first thing people see, and recent studies show a clear link between acne and depression. While acne is the most common skin problem in this country, not all acne is created equal. It not only affects teenagers, but according to the American Academy of Dermatology, a growing number of women between the ages of 30 and 50 have acne. Due to the wide ranging causes of acne, treating it can be very complex. At Johns Creek Dermatology & Family Medicine, we believe starting treatment at the first signs of acne is vital in minimizing or preventing blemishes and scaring, thus are committed to offering a wide variety of treatment options to our patients.

Acne can be caused by a number of factors including genetics and hormonal fluctuations that lead to excessive oil production. At Johns Creek Dermatology & Family medicine, we look at the symptoms comprehensively to provide with the best treatment option for each individual patient. Even mild acne can escalate quickly, so it is extremely important to set up a regimen that works to prevent scaring.

However, if you have already experienced scaring and uneven skin tone due to acne, we have cutting edge treatments to address these concerns, such as saline injections, chemical peels, as well as many topical and oral medications. We also use microneedling and microdermabrasion, both state of the art treatments that use the body’s natural healing process to minimize the look of scarring.

Our approach to treating comprehensive. Acne, although complex, is treatable and there is no reason a patient should suffer from low self-esteem because of it. At Johns Creek Dermatology and Family Medicine, we strive to help you look your best, so you can feel your most confident! Call today to set up your consultation.
