Acne is the most common skin condition in America, affecting about 50 million. It can cause pronounced feelings of self-consciousness along with considerable physical discomfort. Fortunately, acne can be managed. Dr. Joseph C. Galitzin offers several acne treatments at his Peachtree City, GA, office, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Our team can recommend in-house treatments as well as a daily skin care routine to help you maintain clear, healthy skin. If you or someone you love is suffering with acne, we are prepared to help.
Acne occurs due to a combination of factors. Puberty, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can all result in hormonal changes that trigger the excessive production of sebum, an oil that lubricates the skin. A combination of excess sebum and dead skin cells can cause pores to become clogged. Often, bacteria also becomes trapped in the clogged pore. As the bacteria multiply, inflammation occurs, resulting in pimples and other blemishes.
Based on your needs, we can create a custom acne treatment plan to help you achieve clearer, healthier skin. These plans can involve:
These treatments may be prescribed alone or in combination. For the right patients, we can create a custom 10-step plan incorporating a variety of treatments to help you achieve a clearer, healthier complexion. It is important to note that these treatments may cause your skin to look red or irritated immediately after each session, but complexion gradually improves as your skin heals.
Our in-house treatments can help you achieve a dramatic initial reduction in acne, but maintaining your results will require a specific skin cleansing routine. It may also require making some healthy lifestyle changes.
By reducing the amount of carbohydrates you consume, you can avoid boosts in insulin that lead to increased sebum production.
Our team can recommend specific products to use on a daily basis to clean your skin and prevent the clogging of pores. Meanwhile, there is ample evidence that regular exercise, a healthy diet, and a schedule that budgets time for a good night's sleep can help you keep acne under control:
