Treating Acne in Florida
Acne is more than just embarrassing. For some patients, this skin problem can be physically and mentally painful. Care Dermatology helps patients of all ages get clear and healthy skin. We will work with you to create a customized treatment plan designed to address your unique type of acne.
What Causes Acne?
Acne has a variety of causes. The most common cause is excessive sebum (oil) production in the skin. The oil clogs pores, forming an inflamed blemish. However, it’s important to note that not all acne is caused by oily skin. Makeup, skincare products, hair care products, and even certain foods might be irritating your skin. We will work with you to determine the root cause of your acne.
Topical treatments are the first thing your dermatologist will use to clear up your acne. That’s because these products are affordable, easy to use, and effective. There are many different creams, gels, and face washes available for acne prone skin. Your dermatologist can recommend store bought products or prescribe you something stronger to clear your skin. If your current acne treatment is not working, then your dermatologist can also assess your skin to help you choose a more effective product.
Sometimes, it is best to treat acne from the inside out. We can prescribe a variety of oral medications to treat moderate to severe acne. These range from medications that manage your skin’s oil production to pills to help control the hormones of a patient with hormonal acne. Regardless of your needs, we can find an oral medication that works for you and your skin.

The most effective treatment for acne is a whole body approach that addresses both current and future breakouts. From topical and/or oral medication to lifestyle tips and skincare expertise, the Care Dermatology team will work with you to create a thorough yet gentle routine to keep your skin looking its best.
