What is Acne Vulgaris?
Acne vulgaris is the scientific name for what most people know simply as acne. It is a very common skin condition that is characterized by the presence of comedones, papules, and pustules. Acne vulgaris typically affects the face, chest, and back. Acne is caused by a combination of several factors, including an overproduction of sebum, clogged pores, and the presence of acne-causing bacteria. Acne vulgaris management typically involves the use of topical therapy, such as benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.
In more severe cases, a treatment regimen may be required. With proper treatment, acne vulgaris can be controlled and its effects minimized.
What kind of skin conditions can't our acne treatments treat?
Acne scars are one type of scarring that our acne treatments cannot treat. Acne scars are typically caused by inflammatory acne, which damages the skin and underlying tissues. When the skin heals, it remodels itself, and sometimes this process is imperfect, leading to the formation of scars. There are several types of acne scars, including atrophic scars, hypertrophic scars, and keloid scars. Acne scarring can be difficult to treat, and often requires a combination of treatments, such as dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and injectable fillers.
We also can not treat other musculoskeletal and skin diseases. If you are concerned either of these, we recommend consult with a dermatologist or primary care physician to discuss your treatment options.
What are Retinoids that trat acne?
Retinoids are a class of medications that are derived from Vitamin A. Topical retinoids are commonly used to treat acne by helping to unclog pores and reducing dead skin cells. They can also help to reduce inflammation and redness. Retinoids are available in both over the counter and prescription forms. The most common OTC retinoid is salicylic acid, while tretinoin is the most common prescription topical retinoid. Other prescription retinoids include adapalene and tazarotene. Retinoids can cause side effects such as dryness, redness, and peeling of the skin. They should be used as directed by a healthcare provider.
Does the Atelier frequently change the acne treatment regimen?
We take a long term approach to the treatment of acne to ensure the highest probability of success. We will change your topical treatment and and acne treatment regimen when we have reached the effectiveness of the regimen. We don't want to change products or acne treatment regimen frequently as that can limit the overall effectiveness of the process, delay acne treatment results, and can worsen acne over time.
Does our Treatment use Benzoyl peroxide?
No, our acne treatment does not use Benzoyl Peroxide or azelaic acid.
