Acne Treatment

Acne is a highly treatable skin issue and Humboldt Derm can provide effective treatment.

Acne Treatment

While teenagers are the most susceptible to acne due to hormonal changes, people of every age can develop forms of acne. Even babies. Acne is a nuisance, but it can also be considered a disease when it causes physical or mental scarring, pain, or social discomfort. Acne is much more common than many people realize, and can lead to depression in teenagers.

People of every age can develop some form of acne.

At Humboldt Derm, we treat acne a number of ways. One very effective treatment involves a drug called isotretinoin. It’s a naturally occurring body chemical that typically cures acne in approximately 80% of patients after a five-month course of treatment. We can also manage your acne topically, with oral antibiotics, or with a combination of treatments. This method is often ideal for teens – and adults – with milder forms of acne.

When it comes to treating your acne, we customize our treatment based on you, your skin, and even your age.
