Most people will experience symptoms of acne at some point in their lives. Although common, the appearance of blackheads, pustules and cysts can severely impact your quality of life. Acne typically appears on the face, but can spread to the back and chest. It is rare that acne will persist through to adulthood, and it is believed that hormonal changes in puberty are a key contributor to the formation of spots and pimples.

However, acne scars can be a constant reminder of the pain and insecurity of adolescence. Pockmarks and pitting on the skin create an inconsistent complexion and distract the eye. You may continue to feel withdrawn and lack confidence due to the presence of scars on your face and body.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Kayal Dermatology and Skin Cancer Specialists has identified that picking or squeezing spots or cysts is a key contributor to scarring later in life. Although it is tempting to “clean out” the affected area, this often makes the problem worse, as it spreads bacteria to the surrounding area. Aggravation to healthy skin also initiates an immune response that leads to permanent scarring.

It is common to believe that acne is a result of poor hygiene. Conversely, frequent washing can exacerbate the condition and increase the temptation to pick or scratch at spots. Makeup and cosmetics are frequently used to conceal the appearance of blemishes, but the oils therein feed the harmful bacteria and ultimately worsen the texture of the skin.

Let Go of the Impact of Acne

Acne scars and pitting of the skin is a traumatizing reminder of an unpleasant and often uncontrollable condition. Constantly feeling self-conscious of your appearance is detrimental to your overall well-being, and can limit social interactions and opportunities. At Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists, we offer a range of treatments to smooth your complexion and reduce the appearance of scars.

Microdermabrasion is a quick and easy solution for mild scarring. The procedure takes around fifteen minutes to complete and requires no downtime. For deeper “ice pick” scarring, we offer a punch graft treatment where healthy skin fills in the noticeable holes in the complexion.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.
