What Is Acne?

Acne, a common skin condition, encompasses various types of blemishes caused primarily by clogged pores, often linked to concerns like oily skin. While it typically manifests on the face, acne can also affect other areas of the body.

The term "acne" encompasses blemishes such as:

  • Blackheads

  • Whiteheads

The most suitable acne treatment for you depends on the specific type of acne you are experiencing. A consultation with our team in New York can provide valuable insights into your skin and help determine the best treatment approach.

How Does an Acne Laser Treatment Queens NY Work?

Just as there are multiple types of acne, there are multiple causes of acne, so there need to be different types of acne treatment. One of the primary causes of acne is a bacteria called P. acnes bacteria.

Laser and light treatments are particularly effective for destroying P. acnes bacteria. Not only does this mean this is a good acne treatment to help clear the skin, but it can help prevent future acne due to the reduction of the bacteria.

One of the benefits of seeing a dermatologist for an acne treatment allows you to possibly be prescribed medications for your acne. Antibiotics can also be effective for treating P. acnes bacteria. There are a variety of topical and oral medications for acne, and they are usually recommended in extreme cases.
