Acne Be Gone!

acne treatment | glenn dale mdWell, there you are – dealing with an acne flare-up once again. Does it seem like no matter how how healthy you eat, how much water you drink or how often you wash your face, your acne continues to show up, usually when least desired? You aren’t alone if that is any consolation.

People of every age and time of life are concerned about the appearance of their skin because of recurring acne flare-ups. Callender Dermatology can help. First, read on to learn about 3 of the causes of acne:

  1. Too Much Oil. Your skin needs oil to stay moist, bright and youthful. But when your skin produces too much oil, your risk of acne is increased. With hormonal changes comes excessive oil production. That’s why so many teens going through puberty suffer from acne. Many adults must also deal with hormonal imbalances and may find they need treatment for adult acne as they age.
  2. Lots Of Bacteria. Acne loves and feeds on germs and bacteria. So, don’t touch your face and don’t pick at your skin. Your daily face-touching rituals when relaxing at home, at work or when you sleep can add unwanted, unhealthy bacteria to your facial skin – making existing acne worse and resistant to treatment.
  3. Clogged and Blocked Pores. Your body is full of pores, and they play an integral part in your body’s overall health. Their purpose is to move waste products such as sweat from your body to help it maintain a healthy equilibrium. But your pores can easily become obstructed, and when that happens, acne can be a result. One of the surest ways to combat this acne trigger is to keep your face clean with a morning and night skin care routine – wash your face and never, ever, ever go to bed without removing your make up.

We offer skin resurfacing treatments, facials, chemical peels, laser rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion to help address acne and it’s scars. There is no need to continue to suffer. Call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Callender, today: (301) 249-0970.
