Acne Scarring Treatments:
Acne is a condition marked by blemishes known as comedones on the face and other parts of the body. Acne occurs when the oil glands under the skin clog the pores and result in pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, or other blemishes. Acne may be caused by excessive oil on the face (which is often triggered by hormones in children), but it can also be the result of a bacterial overgrowth.
Acne blemishes can become large and severely inflamed, which can ultimately lead to ruptures. When a blemish ruptures, it can lead to scarring. Pediatric dermatologists at Premier Dermatology can provide a wide variety of treatment options designed to prevent the formation of large acne blemishes and treat them as they occur. A combination of topical and oral medications can provide outstanding results, and in the case of severe breakouts, dermatologists may also inject a diluted corticosteroid that can reduce inflammation and speed healing while greatly reducing the severity of scars.
