We treat all types of Acne problems at Dermatology Realm in Germantown, Tennessee. Acne is a normal physiological response to the body's growth and maturation. As our bodies mature, the increase in hormone production stimulate the sebaceous (oil) glands to make more oil. This sebum causes the cells lining the outflow duct of the gland to become sticky, leading to the formation of a plug. This plug prevents the oil from getting out of the duct causing an acne lesion. Cystic infected acne lesions will require systemic antibiotics or Accutane. By using the appropriate skin cleanser and moisturizers, the plugs can be dissolved while increasing the healing of the skin's surface and deep dermis. Antibiotics can kill the infection in lesions, decreasing severity of acne, while the topical medications clear the acne. Accutane (isotretinoin) is often a cure for acne. A six month course may completely and permanently stop acne and reverse acne scarring.
