Acne is a four-letter word that many of us know all too well – it is a common skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. Oil and dead skin cells clog the pores, and outbreaks of lesions (often called pimples or zits) can happen. Most often, the outbreaks occur on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders. No matter your age, you have most likely experienced some form of acne throughout your life. Whether it was caused by stress, the weather, or simply genetics, acne comes in many types and stages and can appear totally different at different periods in your life. The Delaware dermatologists at Premier Dermatology And Cosmetic Surgery are trained to treat patients of all ages, so knowing about your acne severity will help to determine the best, most customized treatment for your skin.
Even though there is no real test to determine the severity of acne, the Delaware dermatologists at Premier Dermatology And Cosmetic Surgery classify acne as mild, moderate, or severe.
For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their thirties, but some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem. Regardless of the severity, if you are concerned about your acne contact the Delaware dermatologists at Premier Dermatology And Cosmetic Surgery today to set up a consultation.
