Advanced acne treatment at Dermatology & Aesthetic Care
What is Acne?
Acne is a buildup caused by clogged pores and hair follicles. This buildup causes inflammation that leads to blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Pimples can cause discomfort and are often considered unsightly.
Acne breakouts can take time to heal if left untreated. If treated improperly, acne can also cause scarring.
Acne outbreaks occur without warning, but there are treatment options that can help you enjoy clear, smooth skin faster. Our board-certified dermatologists can help develop a plan with the industry’s leading treatments based on your specific needs.

Other skin and health conditions may impact the most effective treatment options for you. That’s why our dermatologists in Centerville will complete a thorough examination after reviewing your medical history.
Acne scars will not fade without treatment. In fact, they can sometimes become more prominent as we age and our skin loses collagen. However, their appearance can be reduced with treatments that improve the skin’s overall appearance, such as microneedling.
Pimples can take as few as one week or as long as several weeks to go away without treatment. The actual duration depends on the source of the outbreak and its severity, but our board-certified treatments will help lessen that time.
Most acne treatments are generally considered safe during pregnancy. However, some medication should be avoided to avoid harming the fetus. A dermatologist can help recommend a safe acne treatment plan during pregnancy.
Sometimes. If an illness combines with environmental threats to overwhelm the immune system, it can potentially cause acne to flare up.
Acne can present in different ways. Unfortunately, it’s also often confused with other skin conditions that, at times, might be more severe. Here, we’ve included a few pictures of its most common forms to help distinguish it from other types of skin outbreaks.
