At Cinco Ranch Dermatology, we take acne very seriously. While it is frequently blown off as a cosmetic issue or only a problem for teenagers, we understand that acne can be cosmetically devastating, affecting self esteem, job prospects, and even relationships. The scarring on the skin caused by acne can be with you for life if not addressed quickly and expertly. Dermatologists are the true experts of acne as we deal with it day in and day out and have a deep understanding of the various underlying causes and contributing factors. We carefully examine your skin, take a detailed history, and determine a personalized plan. There are no "cookie cutters" here. Treatment can be as simple as a skin cleansing regimen and topical therapies but we have the full scope of treatment for even the most severe cases up to and including hormonal treatments (spironolactone), chemical peels, light therapy (blu-U photodynamic therapy) and isotretinoin (Accutane). Acne is not just for teenagers, unfortunately. Some of us never seem to grow out of acne, particularly women. There are great treatments for all types of acne, for all ages. The most important step is getting it properly diagnosed and managed by our acne specialists.
Acne scarring is also a big issue. We offer a personalized plan that includes topical therapies, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and microneedling.
