Acne

Is acne affecting your health and appearance? We can help.

Acne is one of the most common chronic diseases that Americans face. It’s not just a rite of passage during your teen years. In fact, many adults find themselves battling acne well into their 20s, 30s, and beyond. Our Beverly Hills, MI, dermatologist Dr. Indira can help if you are struggling with acne.

What causes acne?

When pores get clogged, this leads to acne. Different kinds of acne can form depending on what pores are impacting. You may be dealing with

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Milia
  • Papules
  • Pustules
  • Nodules
  • Cysts

What are some ways that I can manage my acne?

If you decide to treat acne yourself, several lifestyle changes, new habits, and over-the-counter options could certainly improve mild to moderate forms of acne. Home care and lifestyle changes to improve acne might look like,

  • Exfoliating your skin once a week to remove dirt and grime and unclog pores
  • Find outlets to get stress under control, such as meditation, mindfulness breathing or yoga
  • Make sure you are getting about seven to nine hours of high-quality sleep a night
  • Wash your bedding and pillowcases regularly in hot water
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Disinfect your cellphone regularly
  • Wash your face twice a day and after exercise with an acne-fighting cleanser
  • Drink lots of water every day to flush out toxins
  • Limit or avoid dairy to see if acne-related inflammation is improved
  • Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day
  • Stay away from oil-based hair and skincare products, including makeup

Should I turn to a dermatologist for acne treatment?

It does take months to see results with at-home care, so it’s essential to be patient; however, it’s just as vital that you don’t put off getting the care you deserve for healthier, clearer skin. Turning to our Beverly Hills, MI, dermatologists for acne treatment can help you get clearer skin faster with options that can be far more effective than at-home treatments alone. Here are some signs it’s time to turn to a dermatologist for acne treatment,

  • You aren’t seeing results with your current at-home program despite giving it 12-16 weeks
  • You are dealing with nodules, cysts, or deep, painful acne
  • Your acne impacts your self-esteem and confidence
  • You feel fed up or exhausted by your acne
  • Despite effective strategies to treat acne, you’re still dealing with new breakouts

Please know that if you are dealing with severe acne or cystic acne, it’s best to turn to our Beverly Hills, MI, team for treatment, as lifestyle changes are often not enough, and this form of acne can leave scars if not adequately treated.
