BELLEVILLE, NJ, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Whether you're a teenager or adult, acne has a way of sneaking up on anyone. While it's typical for teenagers to deal with dreaded acne, it's not surprising that even adults battling it as well. In fact, acne is considered one of the most common skin conditions in the United States. If you're sick of seeing acne every time you look in the mirror and desire clearer, pimple-free skin, turn to Dr. Dominick Ligresti, dermatologist in Belleville, NJ.
"We see a lot of younger patients come in complaining about acne. They want a way to stop their skin from breaking out," says Dr. Ligresti, Belleville, NJ dermatologist. "As anyone who has had acne knows, it can take a toll on your self-confidence. A lot of patients are so self-conscious about their acne that they don't even want to be in public. I want to find the proper treatment for all of my patients so they don't have to just suffer with acne."
While there is no wonder drug for curing acne, the great news is that there are a variety of different reliable options for fighting acne. Just as there are many reasons for acne, there are different options for treating acne. "For some women, especially adults, their acne could be hormonally induced. In these instances hormonal treatments like oral contraceptives can be a wonderful option," says dermatologist in Belleville, NJ, Dr. Ligresti. "Over the course of a couple months, you should notice a pretty significant difference in your skin's appearance."
Perhaps you only notice a couple small bumps on your chin or nose from time to time. The best solution for treating mild acne is with Benzoyl Peroxide. "I've seen a lot of patients with more mild forms of acne benefit from using Benzoyl Peroxide. This topical medication can really zap pimples and make skin clearer. Patients have been very satisfied with these results," says Belleville, NJ dermatologist, Dr. Ligresti.
Tretinoin has also become a standard treatment for acne. "Tretinoin is derived from Vitamin A and helps unclog blockages that cause pesky whiteheads and blackheads. For those who are fighting both forms of acne, Tretinoin is a lifesaver," says Dr. Ligresti, dermatologist in Belleville, NJ. "We also perform extractions in the office, where I remove whiteheads and blackheads with a small metal tool. It's quick and easy and patients often like leaving the office with their acne already taken care of."
