Acne is a condition that can affect anyone at any age. But how can you get rid of it? What do you do if you have a pimple pop up immediately before a special event such as your wedding or class reunion? At Dania Dermatology, patients in the area of Dania, FL can speak with DR. Stanley Skopit about their needs and find out ways to get rid of acne—both fast and effectively!
What is acne?
Dr. Stanley Skopit describes acne as a skin condition that significantly impacts the pores of the face. Oils and infection can occur, causing blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules to form. The severity of acne varies from patients to patient and also depends on the type of acne present. Working with a dermatologist is the best way to find the most appropriate and effective way to address the acne quickly.
How do I take care of acne fast?
Taking care of acne needs to be done over time, and can’t always be rushed. Patients who work with a dermatologist will often educate themselves on the type of acne they have and learn about the products and services that can work. With a good skincare routine at home, the use of prescription medications, and regular treatments in the office (such as light and laser-based therapies), many patients will see clearer skin over the course of several months. Some over-the-counter products and creams may be used to help calm a pimple that might develop overnight, but there is no tried-and-true way to completely rid the face of acne within a day.
What treatments might my dermatologist suggest?
Below are a few of the treatments that might be recommended for patients who struggle with acne:
- Topical skincare products
- Oral medications
- Prescription-strength cleansers and medications
- Light and laser-based therapies
- Chemical peels
