ACNE

According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is the most common skin disorder, and it affects up to 50 million people in the United States each year. Most people develop acne symptoms as teenagers, but it can also develop in adulthood. The AAD estimates that 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 have at least minor acne.

But what exactly is acne? It’s an inflammatory skin condition that affects the skin’s hair follicles and oil glands. The acne symptoms you develop are determined by the type of acne you have, and it can form on many areas of the body, including your face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Some people may have only mild whiteheads or blackheads, but others may develop large, painful lumps that form deep under the skin.

Acne can have a huge effect on someone’s self-esteem, confidence, and stress levels. Although there are a lot of great over the counter treatments available for acne, some patients need to see a board-certified dermatologist to treat their acne. Here at Sechoir Dermatology, we have access to cutting edge medications, laser and light treatments for acne, and advanced service providers. We will customize your treatment plan to your skin and schedule.

Treatments Offered at Séchoir

Upon consultation with our team, the best course of treatment will be determined by your provider. Treatment may include prescription topicals, oral prescriptions, and Accutane. Accutane is an oral medication used to treat acne. It is indicated for treatment for severe acne, nodular-cystic acne, and/or acne that has not sufficiently responded to other treatments. Although there is no official cure for acne, Accutane treatment is the closest option.

Medical Dermatology

Medical dermatology involves the evaluation and diagnosis for diseases of the skin, hair, lips, and mouth to improve overall health. Medical dermatology treatments then work to control those disorders or diseases that are confined to the skin using a wide range of options.
