Acne (Acne Vulgaris) is a skin disease triggered by the hormones of adolescence, causing follicles in the skin to become plugged and then inflamed. While acne is often associated with teenagers, people can develop acne through middle age.
Corederm’s physicians and staff have experience treating even the most severe, stubborn cases of acne. We customize treatment plans for our patients’ specific conditions and lifestyles. Topical treatments are effective for mild to moderate cases, opening up plugged follicles, killing bacteria and removing excess oil.
For some acne patients, Corederm’s physicians may prescribe oral medications, such as antibiotics or isotretinoin. Isotretinoin was approved by the FDA in 1978, and has proven to be an effective treatment for severe acne. Isotretinoin decreases the size of oil glands in the skin and helps prevent the plugging of follicles
Corederm professionals assess every individual case to recommend personalized Acne treatments. No one should have to endure Acne and at Corederm we have the expertise to advise patients on the best treatment option for them.
