Acne is a skin condition that can affect patients of all ages and skin types. It ranges in severity (from mild white or blackheads to more painful bumps and pimples) and can result from a variety of conditions. Acne is a deeply personal condition, affecting one’s appearance and self-esteem and treatment needs vary from patient-to-patient. This makes it important to find a dermatologist who will work with you and tailor your approach to skincare so that it suits your specific goals.
