Acne in Orange County
Acne is a skin condition that affects the hair follicles (pores) of the face, chest, and back, plugging the pores and often causing inflammation as the acne bacteria multiplies. About 20% of all patient visits to dermatologists are related to acne. Nearly everyone suffers from some degree of acne at some point in life, usually in the teen years of puberty but some adults suffer with acne throughout life. Dr. Sikorski’s goal in your acne care is to stop breakouts, prevent future breakouts and restore your skin to a smooth healthy condition.
Early and consistent Acne Therapy will help minimize or prevent scarring and psychological effects. It’s important to give yourself or your teenager the tools to manage a common yet potentially devastating disease. Left unattended, acne may eventually go away, but the long term effects of acne on self esteem, social interaction, academic performance and activity choices can have a life long consequences.
Will I “outgrow” acne?
Acne is a chronic disease, affects a majority of those 12 to 24 years of age and may continue to afflict some Orange County patients well into adulthood. The effective early treatment of acne in sufferers of all ages and types is critical and the acne patient or parents of a child or teen with acne should not “wait it out”. The key to treatment is consistent control since acne is not “cured” as are other skin diseases.
