Dermatologist Orlando Acne Treatments

How does the Orlando Dermatology Center diagnose acne?

To diagnose acne and prepare proper acne treatments, Dr. Blatnoy will first examine your skin to make sure you have acne. Other skin conditions can look like acne. If you have acne, the dermatologist will:

  • Grade the acne. Grade 1 is mild acne. Grade 4 is severe acne.
  • Note what type, or types, of acne appear on your skin.

How do dermatologists treat acne?

Many people can treat mild acne with over-the-counter products containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. These treatments often clear the skin but may not clear overnight. Although many treatments claim to work overnight, most will require 4-8 weeks to see significant improvement.

For more intense acne treatments, Dermatologists may prescribe heavy duty products. The regiment and requirements must be met and followed for these to work properly.

When to see a dermatologist

If you have a lot of acne, cysts, or nodules, a medicine that you can buy without a prescription may not work. If you want to see clearer skin, you should see a dermatologist.

    why choose a dermatologist to treat acne

    It can be difficult to know when it’s time to see a specialist about acne. You may feel it’s just acne, so why bother. Or you may believe that your acne’s not serious enough for you to see a doctor who specializes in skin diseases.

    The truth is many people with acne can benefit from seeing a dermatologist. You don’t have to have severe acne.

    Not all breakouts are the same. There are several forms of acne, each requiring a tailored skin care approach. While mild acne may be treated at home with a consistent skin care regimen and topical products, many types of acne require medical intervention from an experienced Dermatologist such as Dr. Vitaly Blatnoy at the Orlando Dermatology Center.

    Whatever form of acne you’re facing, there’s a solution at one of our Orlando, Florida locations to help you manage it.
