Safe, successful acne treatments available with your Orange County dermatologist

One of the common skin concerns faced by people of all ages is acne. While breakouts and clogged pores may be most prevalent in the teenage years, there are other times and circumstances that may cause an individual to struggle to keep his or her skin clear. Since hormonal imbalance is a component of acne, this problem may be triggered by oral contraceptives, monthly cycle changes, pregnancy, age, and even stress.

Dr. Farshidi is an experienced Orange County dermatologist who understands that life can be a challenge for the acne sufferer. The skin irritations from breakouts are difficult to mask, which can lead to embarrassment, lack of self-esteem, and even depression, regardless of the age of the patient. In our office, patients will benefit from treatment tailored to their specific skin care needs, designed to stop active irritation and prevent further acne flare-ups.

The standard protocol followed by most people is to treat acne with over-the-counter solutions first. This may be a face wash or medicated ointment, or even a natural remedy. For some, this approach may eliminate skin inflammation.

When acne is severe or does not respond to the chosen home treatment, professional care is needed. We are happy to consult with patients of all ages to find their ideal acne solution. Every one of us has unique characteristics to our skin. We have specific needs based on our skin type and condition. Treating acne with any “one-size-fits-all” protocol can simply lead to frustration or feeling hopeless.

Dr. Farshidi offers personalized care to each of her patients, with a number of different treatment options to choose from. When treatment is customized to your skin, you are able to relieve discomfort and embarrassment quickly and in a safe way. Professional acne treatments may include specific medication, gentle chemical peels, and custom skin care.

Acne does not have to stand in the way of your total confidence. Your Orange County dermatologist has the expert knowledge and effective treatments to clear your skin safely. Contact Arta Dermatology in Newport Beach for your consultation.
