Acne is a skin condition caused by changes to the oil glands which surround hair follicles. The associated pimples may surface more commonly on the face, but may also affect the chest and back.
Acne occurs most commonly during the teenage years, but frequently continues into adulthood. For most people, acne diminishes over time and tends to disappear during the early twenties. Some people will continue to suffer well into their thirties, forties and beyond.
Acne can be treated with oral medications, topical creams, laser therapies like Isolaz, and chemical peels. Make an appointment with one of our board-certified dermatologists who will evaluate your skin and suggest a treatment plan.
Rosacea is a chronic redness of the skin which generally is visible across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. In some cases, there may be additional symptoms including small bumps, burning and stinging sensations, even a swollen, red nose.
