Acne occurs in people of all ages and can take different forms, ranging from blackheads to painful cysts.
The direct cause of acne is not always known, but often thought to be due to multiple factors such as genetics, bacteria, diet and hormones. Certain medications may also worsen breakouts.
Treatments for acne range from common over-the-counter topical products such as creams and washes, while other options include oral antibiotics, hormonal treatments and Accutane. Red light treatment is very effective for inflammatory acne and is useful in pregnant patients or patients who cannot or do not wish to take oral medication.
Acne scarring can be effectively treated with microneedling.
