My Acne Is Embarrassing: Can You Help?

My Acne Is Embarrassing: Can You Help?

A lot of people think of acne as a small annoyance that affects teenagers. But those people probably outgrew their acne or only get a small pimple now and again. If you live with recurring breakouts, your acne might be something that’s on your mind often, keeping you from being your most comfortable, confident self. 

Fortunately, you’re not stuck with your skin problems or the embarrassment they might cause you. At our LUX Dermatology offices throughout California and Nevada, our team of acne specialists doesn’t suggest a one-size-fits-all treatment. Instead, we take the time to understand what’s causing your acne in the first place so we can target your breakouts at their root. If your acne embarrasses you, we can help. 

Addressing the root cause of your acne

We wish there was a miracle cure that worked for all people and all types of acne. In reality, though, your skin is as unique as you are. 

Your acne might be caused by:

Clearly, a lot could be to blame for your breakouts. 

The problem with a lot of acne treatments stems from their approach. The makers of a store-bought acne solution most likely designed their treatment to address one of those causes we listed above, but it would be virtually impossible to address all of them at once. If you have acne because of a different cause, that treatment won’t do anything for you.

That’s why you need to seek out personalized acne treatment in order to get clear skin. 

How we can help with acne

Here at LUX Dermatology, our team of specialists works with you to figure out what’s causing your acne. 

If bacteria causes your breakouts, we can prescribe an oral medication or antibiotics.

If inflammation is to blame, we can give you a topical treatment to fight it and keep your pores open. 

If you deal with hormonal acne, we can talk with you about the hormonal birth control options that might help.

At the same time, we offer treatments designed to boost your overall skin health. We might recommend laser treatment or a chemical peel to minimize your breakouts and reduce scarring, for example. 

All told, we can build a personalized treatment plan to help you get rid of your acne. If you’re ready to stop feeling embarrassed about your skin, call one of our offices in California or Nevada, or book your visit online today.
