what is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It can affect people of all ages but is most common in adolescents and young adults. About 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent ranging from mild to severe. In some cases, acne can continue and reoccur in adult life. About 5% of women and 1% of men have acne over the age of 25.

Acne causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that is hot or painful to touch. It can appear as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, or cysts and is most often found on the face, neck, chest, and back. Blackheads and spots (comedones) appear on the surface of the skin, resulting in breakouts which can lead to scarring. Acne most often occurs due to hormonal changes and/or diet issues. 

Suffering from acne can be a very lonely experience and can have a devastating effect on self esteem. Many of our patients discuss the long lasting impact acne has had on their self-confidence.

How can you treat Acne?

Common acne treatment options include:

over the counter

These are topical creams, lotions, and gels that contain acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid which can be effective for mild to moderate acne treatment.


If OTC treatments are not effective, Dr. Anil may prescribe a stronger medication. Retinoids are topical medications that unclog pores and reduce inflammation, whereas antibiotics help kill the bacteria that can cause acne.

Chemical peels:

Chemical peels use a solution to remove the top layers of skin, revealing a new, smoother layer of skin underneath. They can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.

Laser therapy

Laser therapy uses intense and focused light to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation in the skin. It can be effective for treating acne and acne scars and in some cases may require multiple treatments.
