Acne Treatment – Acne Scar Treatment – Cypress, Houston TX

WHAT IS ACNE?

Active acne and acne scars on the face, chest, and back can be unsightly and difficult to hide. Our Cypress, TX board-certified Dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Nikko, sees patients of all ages with this common skin condition. Inflamed acne skin is a combination of dead skin cells, bacteria, and clogged pores, which will appear as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and bumps on the skin.

Scars occur when pimples, lumps, cysts, nodules, blackheads and whiteheads advance to the point that the tissue is injured. Many traditional treatments like abrasion therapy, topical agents, conventional lasers, and surgery achieve only moderate results. Most treatments lack the capability of stimulating new collagen, which improves tone and texture. Nikko Dermatology’s advanced acne treatment options use innovative technology to coagulate dermal tissue. It should deliver significant results while reducing the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation to help the skin look healthy and clear.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

A “flare-up” of acne can occur for a number of different reasons, including hormonal fluctuations associated with puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. In addition, certain medications and drugs, such as the birth control pill, can cause acne, as well as stress and a poor diet. Once the exact cause of acne is diagnosed, a proper treatment plan can be established.

IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR ACNE TREATMENT

Ideal candidates for acne dermatology come from all age ranges, from childhood through adulthood. Dr. Nikko finds that patients who benefit most from dermatology acne treatments have a history of unsuccessful home and over-the-counter treatments for acne, as well as frequent break outs and acne scarring.

When acne reaches this point, it typically indicates damage to the skin layers, as well as advanced issues that cause imbalances allowing bacteria and infections to thrive.

HOW TO TREAT ACNE

Research shows that over-the-counter ointments are not proven to effectively treat severe acne. Our dermatology office offers numerous treatment options to control and manage acne and help clear its symptoms. For milder cases of acne, prescription ointments such as topical solutions that contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide can also provide some relief.

There are also oral antibiotics, such as doxycycline, minocycline or tetracycline that can be effective to use. In addition to topical and oral prescriptions, noninvasive skin treatments can also be effective. Not only can a laser treatment help to deep clean and attack dead skin cells under the dermal layer, it should reduce redness and other pigmentation issues associated with acne. Chemical peels, microneedling, and dermabrasion may also repair the skin depending on the type of acne.
