What is Acne?

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that affect men, women, and adolescents alike. These blemishes pop up when the tiny channels in your skin, called pores, get clogged up with bacteria, dead skin cells, dirt, or oils. While acne can appear in the form of a few tiny zits for some, others who suffer from severe and chronic acne breakouts find that their blemishes get in the way of their confidence and ability to live their lives the way they want. Dr. Jen Armstrong’s medical team members are able to treat four different kinds of acne.

What are the Different Types of Acne?

  • Papules. Papules are small, red, and raised bumps that are typically caused by irritated hair follicles.
  • Pustules. Pustules are what we typically think of when we think of acne. These small, red pimples have pus at their tips and are usually called “whiteheads.”
  • Nodules. Nodules are the blemishes we associate with more severe acne. These zits are solid and often painful lumps underneath the skin’s surface.
  • Cysts. Cystic acne is the most frustrating and painful form of chronic acne. These large lumps found beneath your skin are generally painful and contain pus.

What Causes Acne?

If you have acne, you’ve most likely gone online and done some research about what acne is and what causes it. The most honest answer to this question really depends on your body’s chemistry and your lifestyle. At face value, acne is caused by the pores in your skin becoming clogged up with bacteria, dead skin cells, excess oil, or dirt. This buildup inside the pores causes the painful and visible blemishes we know as acne on the skin. That being said, there is a long list of other factors that may contribute to the development of your acne including birth control methods, hormonal changes in the body, genetic factors, and sensitivity to diets high in sugar and carbohydrates.

How Is Acne Treated?

When you visit Armstrong MD for acne treatment, the compassionate doctors create a customized plan to address your specific concerns. This plan may include in-office and at-home procedures to bring you the best outcomes as quickly as possible.

Your plan may include professional exfoliation, which removes dead and damaged skin cells, allowing products to absorb into your skin, increasing their effectiveness easily. Armstrong MD also uses blue LED light therapy, which kills the bacteria on your skin that may be causing your acne. This light also soothes your skin, reducing inflammation and redness.

Depending on your skin’s condition, Armstrong MD may suggest weekly or bi-weekly in-office treatments. That heals your skin faster, and allows her to monitor your progress and ensure there’s no skin irritation or inflammation.

Are At-Home Acne

Treatments Recommended?

Armstrong MD may recommend natural, at-home products to help heal your skin and improve its appearance. That may include products to lighten dark spots caused by acne scars, as well as moisturizing creams to prevent dryness. In some cases, Armstrong MD has premade at-home kits that contain everything you need to get and keep your skin healthy and acne-free.

What Acne Treatments Are Available?

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s professional medical team is proud to offer a wide range of acne treatments to men, women, and teens, including:

 

  • Armstrong Acne Blue Light Treatment
    • Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s signature LED light therapy treatment includes the use of blue light, which kills off acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin. This treatment not only treats your current acne but also helps prevent future acne breakouts from occurring.
  • Prescription Oral and Topical Medication
    • Prescription topical and oral medications have been used to treat acne for decades. This tried-and-true method gives our patients the flexibility to treat their acne in the comfort of their own homes on their own time.
  • Medical-Grade Skincare Products 
    • If you’ve found that over-the-counter skincare products aren’t quite cutting it, Dr. Armstrong and her team will likely encourage you to invest in some medical-grade skincare. These products use high-quality ingredients that have been clinically proven to provide the results you’ve been looking for.

How Much Do Acne Treatments Cost?

The cost of your acne treatments will depend on the type of treatment you choose to receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and the coverage provided by your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your acne treatments will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
