Acne and Acne Scarring

Acne and Acne ScarringAcne is the result of pores becoming clogged with your skin’s natural oils and skin cells. Causes can be linked to insufficient skin care, hormones, and over production of your skin’s natural oils. Acne can occur in mild forms, such as whiteheads and black heads, to the more noticeable papules and pustules, to nodules, cysts, and acne conglobate, the most painful forms that are most likely to leave scarring.

The doctors at North Valley Dermatology have seen it all and can work with you to determine the cause of your acne and provide prescriptive advice and medication to help alleviate your acne as well as ongoing care.  They will also provide directions to help prevent temporary and permanent scarring.
