Acne Treatment at Midtown Dermatology in Tulsa, OK
Acne is often associated with teenagers, but it can persist into adulthood. At Midtown Dermatology, we understand the challenges of dealing with acne and offer specialized treatment to help patients of all ages achieve clearer, healthier skin.
Understanding Acne: Acne presents as pimples on the face, back, and/or chest. While diet and hygiene can contribute, there are often underlying causes. Pustules or Papules: Inflamed pores filled with pus, which can lead to scarring if left untreated.
Causes of Acne: Acne occurs when sebaceous glands under the skin produce sebum that gets blocked in hair follicles. This blockage leads to various blemishes, such as whiteheads and blackheads. Inflammation can result in red pustules or papules. It's important to avoid picking or scratching lesions to prevent inflammation and scarring.
Our Approach to Acne Treatment: At Midtown Dermatology, we recognize that treating acne is a gradual process, and there's no instant solution. Over-the-counter products may work for some, but customized prescription treatment yields better results.
The severity of your acne, your age, and your commitment to treatment play a role in determining the approach we take to your treatment.
