3 Benefits of Seeing a Dermatologist For Your Acne

Do you suffer from acne? Here are 3 benefits of seeing an experienced dermatologist for your skin condition.

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in Canada and while it can affect anyone at any age, it develops most commonly during the teenage years or in your early 20s. The skin condition can have a negative impact on your quality of life and comes with symptoms such as:

  • Clogged pores (whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples)
  • Pustules (raised lesions with pus)
  • Cysts (nodules filled with pus or fluid)
  • Papules (raised lesions)

3 Benefits of Seeing a Dermatologist For Your Acne Treatment

Many people have experienced some form of acne and in certain cases, it can be mild and disappear after the application of some over-the-counter ointment or gel. However, if you have acne that doesn’t respond to these kinds of treatments, or that is severely affecting your quality of life, then you may want to consider seeing a dermatologist.

Seeking professional acne treatment can have many benefits, including:

1. They’ll Identify Any Underlying Health Problems

While acne can be a result of genetics or puberty, it could also be caused by underlying health problems. During a one on one consultation, your dermatologist will discuss your overall health and medical history to identify any potential causes of your acne.

If they do believe that there is something else responsible for the reaction, they can recommend the best course of treatment or even refer you to a specialist for the best and most effective results.

2. You’ll Get a Custom Treatment Plan

There is no one size fits all when it comes to the right treatment for your acne. While there are a variety of medications, ointments, and procedures on the market, some may not be suitable for you and can cause further damage to your skin.

A dermatologist has the knowledge and expertise to provide a safe, personalized, and effective treatment plan for your skin type.

At our skin clinic, we use the VISIA Digital Analysis system which has many benefits, including:

  • Determines your skin type to see what treatment works best for you
  • Allows us to create safe and effective personalized acne treatments for your unique needs
  • Gives your dermatologist the tools to view your results after treatment application so that any necessary adjustments can be made



3. You’ll Receive Advice on Prevention

Dermatologists have the training and expertise required to educate patients on the importance of acne treatment and care. This will help you avoid any long term damage to your skin, such as hyperpigmentation or scarring. They can also advise you on the types of products to avoid, depending on your skin type.
