What Causes Acne?

Breakouts happen when your pores or hair follicles are clogged by excess oil, bacteria or dead skin cells. If this occurs near the skin’s surface then breakouts, whiteheads or blackheads may appear. ‌

Most commonly, acne causes pimples on the face, forehead, chest, shoulders,‌ ‌and‌ ‌upper‌ ‌back. ‌Genetics, fluctuating hormone levels, stress, high humidity, and using oily or greasy personal care products can all contribute. ‌It ‌is most common among teenagers, but it can also affect adults.

In mild to moderate cases, you can wash your face and follow a basic skin cleansing routine to clear the breakout. However, in more severe cases, pimples develop into lumps below the skin’s surface that can cause irritation and possible infection. This type of acne is commonly known as cystic acne.

What Treatments are Most Common?

Dr.‌ ‌Weishar‌ ‌has‌ ‌over 30 years of experience treating acne. She says that treatment depends on the type, severity, and skin tone of the patient. We offer several treatment options. Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion and microneedling are all treatment options.

Accutane

Used for more severe cases, this oral medication reduces oil production, allowing skin to heal faster. Dr. Weishar may also prescribe an oral antibiotic to help reduce bacteria.

Topical Treatment

Benzoyl peroxide helps reduce inflammation that presents as small red bumps, and salicylic acid can help with non-inflammatory cases.

Facials for Acne-Prone Skin

Facials are an effective way to manage acne, reduce inflammation, and minimize scarring. At Springhouse Dermatology in Montgomery County, we offer a specialized facial to effectively treat pimples without making acne worse.

DiamondGlow™

DiamondGlow is a microdermabrasion treatment that refines the skin. While the diamond-tipped tool exfoliates, unclogs pores, and buffers away skin irritations, it hydrates the skin with healing serums.

Benefits of this treatment:

  • Quick
  • Painless (mild discomfort at most)
  • There is no recovery time
  • Results are seen quickly

Laser Resurfacing

Fraxel removes damaged skin cells without harming the surrounding skin and allows your body to create healthy new ones. Laser therapy helps to reduce the appearance of raised scars and develop a healthier complexion. The number of scar treatment sessions will depend on the degree of scarring.

Benefits of this treatment:

  • Fast treatment
  • Minimal recovery time
  • A topical cream helps soothe irritated skin
  • Once the area is healed, the results are immediately noticeable

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to fill acne scars caused by pimples. This is a temporary treatment that can last from a few months to almost a year. It works by lifting the scarred area so that skin appears more firm and smooth.

Dr. Margo Weishar’s extensive experience using injectables has gained her ExpertInjector status. This is a distinction given to less than 3% of physicians in the US.

Benefits of this treatment:

  • Quick and comfortable
  • Results are seen immediately
