Our dermatology practice in Jupiter has solutions for stubborn acne

At A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, we consult with people of all ages regarding common skin concerns. An issue that seems to span several age groups is acne. Although we tend to associate breakouts with the teen years, adults and even young children can experience acne problems. This is due to the fact that acne is a skin condition that can have several triggers. Fluctuations in hormones are a known cause of breakouts, and such variations take place a number of times throughout life. In adolescence, hormones are constantly changing. Oral contraceptives, menstruation, pregnancy, nursing, and the natural aging process have the potential to trigger breakouts at one time or another. Our dermatology practice in Jupiter is equipped with the skill, tools, techniques, and products to help you experience your best, acne-free skin.

Chronic acne is a condition that can pose serious social and professional challenges. Areas of the face, neck, and back can develop redness and clusters of blackheads, whiteheads, or pustules that create embarrassment, decrease self-esteem, and even sometimes lead to depression or anxiety. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, persistent acne can have a great emotional and psychological impact, which is why professional treatment is so important.

Usually, when acne develops, it is treated with extra washing and over the counter medications. Sometimes, these methods work. However, since acne is not usually caused by poor face washing, the extra cleaning, especially with aggressive technique or harsh medicated products, can have a negative effect on the skin. If skin becomes irritated from over the counter products, or does not respond to home treatment within a month or two, an appointment with a caring, skilled dermatologist is needed.

Our skin is unique to us. No two people are exactly alike, which means that acne is best treated with personalized care. There are only several types of acne and a myriad of details within each case. Dr. Vitulli carefully evaluates the skin and discusses details with patients to understand possible causes or triggers of persistent acne. Our dermatology practice in Jupiter has various ways to treat acne, as no single method is ideal for every person or every condition. Based on your skin type and the severity of the acne, our team will devise a unique treatment plan that may consist of medication, topical products, or innovative dermatological procedures to remove irritants and underlying acne-causing bacteria.

Your skin is viewed as a sign of health and vitality. If you have chronic acne, it is not because you are not taking care of your skin. We can help you find a solution to breakouts, so you always feel your best.
