Acne is a common skin problem that many people deal with. A dermatologist can help with advanced skin care techniques that give you healthier and smoother skin. This video explains how acne is treated by dermatologists.
There are a lot of different types of acne that require different levels of treatment. Mild acne can be treated with over-the-counter medicine. Moderate to severe acne may not respond as well to these OTC treatments.
That’s when you should go to a dermatologist. They can track down the hormonal cause of the acne to get to the root of the problem. Acne is always caused by hormonal changes, meaning teenagers and adults in their 40s and 50s will likely need to go see a dermatologist at some point.
It can be difficult to find the time to go see a dermatologist, however. Recent developments have allowed for more flexibility in this regard. Rather than going into the office and waiting to see the doctor, you can have a telemedicine visit with them right on your computer or phone at home.
