Dr. Peter Vitulli, a trusted Jupiter, FL, dermatologist treats patients of all ages, genders, ethnicity, and skin types who are suffering from acne. Acne can be challenging to treat, especially if the patient has sensitive skin. In these cases, Dr. Vitulli provides advanced medical treatment, but also offers the following advice:
  • Be gentle – It is important to remove makeup, oil, and dirt from you face. However, it is also important to use cleansers that don’t strip the moisture from your skin and make the acne worse. Read the labels to find a cleanser that won’t irritate the skin.
  • Use a clean washcloth – Many patients use a washcloth and then throw it over the towel rack to use again the next day. Unfortunately, damp washcloths are the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply. Use a fresh washcloth every time you wash your face.
  • Find calming ingredients - Many over-the-counter products are made with ingredients that are designed to soothe and comfort sensitive skin. Products with ingredients like chamomile, shea butter, and aloe will help the skin remain hydrated and reduce irritation.
  • Do not exfoliate – If you have sensitive skin, this step could cause more irritation to the skin and additional acne flare ups.
  • Use the right products – Understanding your skin type and why it reacts certain ways can help you find the right skin care products. Working with a trained dermatologist is the right first step. He can help you understand what’s causing your acne and can determine which treatment or products offer the right blend of ingredients for your skin type.

Dr. Peter Vitulli is well-trained and experienced in helping patients manage their sensitive skin and acne troubles. For more information or to find out if your acne needs medical help, call Dr. Vitulli’s office to schedule a consultation today.

I started seeing Dr. Vitulli a few years ago because of my fair skin and frequent cases of skin cancer. He and his staff have always made me feel very comfortable, they are very informative and spend time with me to ensure I understand everything.
