Acne, the most common skin condition, affects millions of teens and adults in the United States every year. Though common, accurate information about acne can be scarce as many myths still surround both the cause and treatment. This can make it difficult to get clearer skin. Dr. Heather Roberts has a unique interest in helping you understand the causes of acne and how to successfully treat it.
Why treat acne?
Myths about acne are almost as common as the skin problem itself. Common myths include that you have to let acne run its course or that it is just an accepted part of being a teenager or that adults do not even get acne. Dermatologists know that letting acne run its course is not always the best advice.
- Without treatment, dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears.
- Treating acne often boosts a person’s self-esteem.
