Acne Q & A

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that occurs from the overproduction of oil, or sebum, by the sebaceous glands. The excess oil accumulates in your hair follicle, trapping dead skin cells and debris, creating a clogged pore and the perfect environment for bacterial growth. 

Your clogged pore may turn into a:

  • Blackhead — open clogged pore
  • Whitehead — closed clogged pore
  • Papule — red, tender bump
  • Pimple — papule with pus at the tip
  • Nodule — solid painful lump
  • Cystic lesion — painful, pus-filled lump

Acne affects people of all ages but is more common in teenagers. For some people, acne lasts years. And when your blemishes clear, you may be left with acne scars.

If you dislike how your acne affects the look of your skin, the team at Thomas Dermatology can help. 

What are the treatments for acne scars?

Like acne, not all acne scars are the same. Some acne scars are depressed or pitted, while others are raised and discolored. Treatment for your acne scars depends on the scar type and location, as well as the health of your skin.

At Thomas Dermatology, the team may recommend chemical peels or Blu-U blue light therapy to reduce the appearance of acne scars. The practice also uses the innovative PicoSure® laser to treat acne scars. Dermal fillers may also help mask their appearance.
