Patients of all ages struggle with conditions such as acne. While acne is usually associated with teenagers dealing with sudden changes in their hormones, some patients continue to experience acne well into their adult years. Adult acne is one of the most common reasons patients visit a dermatologist for help. They want to treat the acne that over-the-counter products do not seem to fix.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist in Washington, DC who helps patients at her practice, the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. She is committed to helping men, women and teenagers with skin conditions such as acne. She understands the importance of beautiful, healthy skin and knows how acne can affect one’s overall self-esteem and confidence. This is why she offers professional services to treat acne.
Acne treatment will vary depending on the type of acne, which is why a thorough examination and proper diagnosis is key to choosing the best way to treat the condition. When determining the most appropriate treatment, many types of acne as well as various severities need to be considered
Acne treatment often begins with proper home care, including cleansing with gentle cleansers and using toners and moisturizers. Ingredients such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are commonly integrated as acne fighting solutions. Then, patients often add other treatments including oral medications, topical prescription creams and even services such as facials and microdermabrasion to keep the skin healthy and clear. Patients who comply with the treatment recommendations by Dr. Cheryl Burgess will enjoy the benefits of skin that is smooth, clear and beautiful. Acne typically requires continued care to ensure flare-ups do not occur, so working with a dermatologist regularly is important.
