Acne in teens and young adults

Every year, 17 million pre-teens and young adults experience the discomfort and agony of acne. Although this may be hard on teens emotionally, acne can also be very painful physically.  Of the 17 million pre-teens and young adults that are victims of acne, nearly 85 percent experience the symptoms and hormonal imbalances that cause acne by the young age of 11. Hormones, oil skin glands, and puberty may be some of the short-term causes of acne in teens, however, research shows that often those who suffer with acne need to seek further professional medical attention from an experienced dermatologist.

Seeking help from an experienced dermatologist can help to pinpoint exactly what may be the cause of acne and assist in providing solutions to help solve these issues. Acne treatment and medical help from a dermatologist can also provide solutions in making social activities, self-esteem, and the overall quality-of-life in many teens and young adults much more rewarding.

Those that do seek medical attention from a dermatologist may receive the options of topical, oral, and laser treatments. All of these treatments can be highly effective in treating acne.

Also, in order to achieve the most optimal results in acne management, patients often times will seek additional specialty treatments. These specialty treatments, such as facials and peels, can enrich the skin with vital minerals and nutrients.  These procedures can also help to maintain a hydrating balance in the skin, decongest pores, and help to accelerate the desired results in clearing acne to improve the overall quality and appearance of the skin.

At Werschler Aesthetics, there are many different treatments that may assist in treating acne and clearing the skin of impurities.  Please call Werschler Aesthetics or Spokane Dermatology Clinic to schedule an appointment or consult for acne concerns. Or learn more by visiting SpokaneDerm.com
