What Are Acne Treatments?
Do you suffer from acne? Do you have to endure the embarrassment and shame of unsightly acne outbreaks breaking up your mood? The problem with acne is that you just can’t control when an outbreak is going to happen, and once it’s happened, you can’t hide from it, it’s right there for the whole world to see. And, the fact of the matter is, acne isn’t just limited to children and teens, adults can suffer too.
What Are the Benefits of Acne Treatments?
Getting rid of acne has both short-term and long-term benefits. You will feel more self-confident from addressing common forms of acne, including moderate and inflammatory acne, as your skin will be clearer, but there are long-term benefits to acne treatment as well. Many adults are left with disfiguring acne scars caused by incomplete treatment in their youth. Acne scars, including raised (hypertrophic) and depressed (atrophic) scars, are particularly common, and their appearance ranges from looking like a scar caused by an ice pick to a wide saucer type scar. Acne scars can be prevented with acne treatment from Dr. Banks, which is extremely important because the leftover acne scars can be just as devastating to a patient as the acne it replaced.

Contact us today to set up your consultation, and learn more about the benefits of acne treatments and acne scar revision.
Who is a Candidate for Acne Treatments?
If your self-confidence is diminished because of acne or acne scars and it holds you back from a full social life, you may be a candidate for treatment. If you have acne, it’s important to treat it. The actual cause of acne is an increased level of androgens, which are first encountered in puberty. They can cause increased production of a particular type of facial oil known as sebum. Sebum brings skin cells to the surface of the skin, but when it meets excess oil, the opening of these glands can become clogged. Excess oil and old cells can plug the duct and a whitehead results. After enlarging, its dark tip may form a blackhead. Bacteria may then multiply and increase their presence in the clogged pores, resulting in red, inflamed pimples and the start of acne.
What Are Acne Treatment Procedures?
