Acne is a common skin condition that affects many individuals, typically during their teenage years, although it can occur at any age. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes deeper, inflamed lesions.

While the exact causes of acne can vary from person to person, some common factors include hormonal changes, excess oil production, clogged pores, bacteria on the skin, and inflammation. Certain factors like genetics, stress, diet, and certain medications may also contribute to the development or exacerbation of acne.

Managing and treating acne can involve a combination of self-care practices and, in some cases, seeking professional assistance.

If your acne is severe, persistent, or causing emotional distress, please reach out to our dermatologists right away. We can help assess your specific condition, prescribe appropriate medications, and provide tailored treatment options such as topical or oral medications, chemical peels, or laser therapy.

Remember, treating acne requires patience as results may take time to become noticeable. With consistent care and appropriate treatment, most cases of acne can be effectively managed and improved.

Our providers are proficient in all aspects of acne care, including topical and oral therapies. For those requiring accutane (isotretinoin), we can appropriately guide and manage care.

Dr. Batra is also proficient in various chemical peels that can be used for improving acne (various severities) and acne scarring.

We can also treat acne scarring with dermatologic procedures. Combination modalities lead to maximum improvements. Microneedling, subcision, full-face chemical peels, focused strong chemical peels, fillers, and laser treatments are often utilized.
