3 Signs You Should See a Skin Specialist For Your Acne

Is your acne making you feel self-conscious and unhappy? Are your at-home treatments not working? Here are 3 signs that you need a professional acne treatment.

Acne is a common skin condition caused by the inflammation of skin glands and hair follicles. While it is most common in teenage patients, acne can affect individuals of all ages, and may even continue into your adult years.

Some of the symptoms of acne include:

  • Blackheads, whiteheads, and/or pimples
  • Papules (raised lesions)
  • Pustules (raised lesions that have pus)
  • Cysts (nodules filled with fluid or pus)

3 Signs You Need a Professional Acne Treatment

The degree of acne someone experiences can range from mild to severe, but whatever your situation, ignoring the problem for too long can have significant consequences such as skin damage and scarring.

Here are 3 signs that you should consider a professional acne treatment:

1. You’ve Had Your First Acne Breakout

If you have never suffered from acne before, but are suddenly experiencing moderate to severe breakouts, then you should strongly consider visiting a skin specialist as soon as possible. There could be a number of causes behind this onset, including:

  • Increased stress levels
  • Changes in diet
  • Hormonal changes
  • Bacterial infection

During a consultation, a skin specialist can address your lifestyle and medical history to identify the root cause of the problem and suggest possible acne treatments to clear your skin up quickly and safely.


3. You Suffer From Cystic Acne

If you suffer from acne that is extremely inflamed, or that is moderate to severe, the best course of action is to skip OTC treatments and head straight to your dermatologist. Over the counter treatments will not improve acne at this level, and you’ll only end up wasting time and money on products that won’t work for your condition.

Remember: Nodules and cysts are very severe forms of acne and should always be evaluated by a dermatologist. Without prompt treatment, these deep blemishes can easily cause scarring.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
