If you have dealt with acne over the years, you should understand that you are not alone in your struggle. Teenagers and adults alike have varying levels of acne. While it is a totally normal part of life, it can also cause a significant amount of stress. It can be painful and cause insecurity. The doctor in this video, Dr. Mansouri, details a few of the basics when it comes to acne treatment.
Dr. Mansouri stresses that there are many different types of acne and how you approach treatment will depend on what kind you are dealing with.
For those with mild acne, over-the-counter products will likely do the trick.
Over-the-counter products, however, might not be enough to treat moderate or severe acne. If you are dealing with more intense acne, set an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist. They will find the best way to manage your unique skin.
Hormones are the main cause of acne, so it’s hard for teenagers — even those in their 20s and 30s — to avoid getting blemishes. Prioritize yourself! Take the time to call a qualified, board-certified dermatologist today to begin your acne treatment today.
