Acne is something that affects people regardless of their age. While it is more prevalent in teenagers, there are many adults out there who can tell you firsthand that just because you’re in your thirties or forties, this does not mean that acne just disappears. There are a lot of over-the-counter options for treating acne. Some work to a certain degree, and some can actually make your acne worse. The only way to know for sure what acne treatment you should use is to speak to a qualified professional.
When you talk to our specialists at McGuiness Dermatology about your acne, they will be able to work with you to find the right treatments for the type of acne that you have. They can help you get rid of the acne that you are battling today, as well as help you prevent acne from forming again in the future.
One powerful tool that our medical professionals have at their disposal that you cannot get at the store is prescription medication. Our dermatologist will be able to examine your acne breakouts and then order prescriptions that can address your acne. Over-the-counter products are only designed to help individuals who have the mildest cases of acne possible. These generic medications have just enough of the active ingredient so that the manufacturer can include the active ingredient on the label. Conversely, prescription medication is designed to be powerful. It can help you even if you have a severe form of acne.
At McGuiness Dermatology, we tailor your acne treatment to your needs. We have a wide range of treatments available at our office that can help with your condition. These treatments include chemical peels, light-based treatments and microdermabrasion. We can use these treatments to remove dead skin cells with the goal of encouraging your skin to renew itself, leaving you with smooth, fresh, youthful-looking skin.
It is important to realize that it will likely take multiple visits to our office before you get the end results that you want. However, after a series of visits, you should start to see your acne fade and your skin become clearer and more attractive.
During a consultation at McGuiness Dermatology, our specialist can examine your acne and come up with a customized acne treatment for you. For your convenience, we have locations in Anna, Dallas, Flower Mound, Murphy, Plano, Prosper and Richardson. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about your treatment options.
