There are many factors which can lead to acne breakouts in adults, including stress, fluctuating hormone levels, medication side effects and genetics. Further, there are several different types of acne, including pimples, white heads, black heads and cysts. No matter what is causing acne and how it is manifesting, an adult acne specialist can offer treatment to help manage breakouts.


Meet the Adult Acne Specialists at Kessel Dermatology 


If you are dealing with persistent acne as an adult, you may consider visiting a board-certified dermatologist’s office such as Kessel Dermatology. After examining your skin, one of our adult acne specialists will discuss which treatment options may work well for you given the type and severity of breakouts you are experiencing. Here are a few treatments we may suggest:

  • Chemical Peels, which help to unclog pores by removing the outer layer of skin 
  • Oral/Topical Retinoids, which treat infected hair follicles and reduce skin inflammation
  • Oral Contraceptives, which inhibit production of acne-causing hormones
  • Systemic/Topical Antibiotics, which help to curb excess oil production

Depending on your specific situation, we may recommend one of these options or a combination of treatment methods.


Why Choose Us for Adult Acne Treatment?


In order to be effective, treatment for adult acne must be tailored to the individual patient, taking into account their skin type, what kind of acne they are experiencing and how severe it is. This is why it’s so important to choose a skin care provider with expertise in controlling various forms of acne during adulthood. 


The acne treatment experts at Kessel Dermatology most definitely meet this criteria, as evidenced by this review from Maria:


“I went to Dr. Kessel after several frustrating attempts at clearing my progressively worsening acne with both over-the-counter and prescription medications. Within one month of initiating topical treatment with Dr. Kessel, my skin looked significantly better. Now, at the end of month two, I am extremely happy with the results. My skin looks like I’ve photoshopped it. Dr. Kessel is kind, attentive and very knowledgeable. I wholeheartedly recommend him. At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I’m genuinely grateful to him for improving my quality of life.”
