Acne is a skin condition often associated with teenagers. But it can also impact adults. In fact, adult acne is extremely common and is one of the leading skin concerns that bring patients to a dermatologist’s office. At MD Cote, Dr. Cynthia Cote and her team work closely with patients to help them achieve clear skin when over-the-counter acne products fail to work.
Why is acne treatment important?
Acne often causes patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance, especially when they have severe blemishes and pimples. But it is never a good idea to leave acne untreated, as it can lead to permanent scarring of the skin. This is especially true when patients pick and pop pimples on their face. With proper treatment, patients can not only achieve clearer skin, but will avoid the risk of acne scarring that lasts a lifetime.
What treatments are available for acne patients?
Dr. Cynthia Cote understands that finding the best treatment for an individual’s acne varies depending on several different factors. When making a treatment recommendation, she takes into account the patient’s type of acne, their age, the severity, and their skin type. Then she can prescribe or recommend products or services that can help with clearing the acne and helping patients feel confident in their own skin. Below are just a few of the common treatment options available at MD Cote for patients in the Maple Valley, Washington community and beyond:
- Benzoyl peroxide
- Azelaic acid
- Salicylic acid
- Antibiotic creams
- Prescription skin creams
- Hormonal therapy
- Laser and light therapies
- Corticosteroid injections
- A proper diet
- A change in skincare products
With the help of Dr. Cynthia Cote, patients with even the most severe of acne will find relief with one or several treatments together.
