Acne in Palm Beach Gardens & Stuart, FL

What Causes Acne?

There are a range of factors that can trigger and worsen acne, but the main cause of acne is skin pores getting blocked by oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. These blockages are responsible for causing different types of pimples, which are the primary symptom of acne. Acne breakouts most often occur on the face, neck, shoulders, back and chest. As there are many factors that contribute to acne breakouts, acne can be a difficult condition to manage. Fortunately, the condition is very treatable, and Florida Dermatology Specialists can help patients find the most effective treatment option.

How is Acne Treated?

Acne can be treated in many different ways, including both internal and external treatment options. Acne treatments are generally intended to address the root causes of acne: blockages in the pores. This can be done by reducing the bacteria, oils or stickiness of skin cells responsible. Possible treatments include:

  • Topical creams and cleansers
  • Oral antibiotics

Furthermore, we may recommend additional treatments to manage acne scarring, which is often a result of moderate to severe acne symptoms. Treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments can reduce acne scarring to improve skin tone and texture.

How Much Does Acne Treatment Cost?

The cost of acne treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the procedures involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.
