The many ways to say goodbye to acne

Acne can occur at any age. Some of my patients wonder why they suddenly get acne in their 20s or 30s. 🤔 It happens at times when our hormones go haywire. Why? Because of insulin spikes in our body brought out by stress, illness or food (high carbohydrates 🍞, high sugar 🍰 and dairy 🍼). 🤯 However, unlike neonatal acne, adult acne doesn’t readily go away by itself. A multimodality treatment approach is instituted to help clear acne and prevent scarring. Visit your friendly neighborhood dermatologist to see what treatment best suits your skin condition and your lifestyle. 🤓

For the new and few pimples

For mild acne vulgaris, fractional radiofrequency with or without needling is a good option. The heat contracts the sebaceous glands underneath the skin which prevents pimple formation. 🥰 Plus, if you have recent post-inflammatory erythema and very shallow acne scarring, this treatment may help improve the condition. 🤔 If you have older and deeper acne scarring, fractional RF needling is a better option for you. As this will also address the textural issues of your skin. 👌🏼
