Acne & Acne Scarring

Acne is a very common issue affecting mostly children and young adults around the world. People living with frequent flare-ups often struggle with feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable about their skin. While acne poses no serious health risks, the fear of having a breakout due to sweat could turn people away from exercising and cause subsequent health issues. The good news is that treating acne vulgaris and acne scarring doesn’t have to require a total lifestyle change. Here at Coastal Dermatology + Aesthetics, our team knows how annoying this issue can be and we’re here to help!

How Does Acne Occur?

Breakouts appear due to a buildup of bacteria in our pores. Some of us are unfortunate enough to have worse cases than others because of hormonal and environmental factors. Some people are prone to having just a couple of occasional zits, while others tend to experience frequent flare-ups. As those in the latter category know, flare-ups often lead to long-lasting scars. If you’re stuck in a cycle of acne and scarring, our San Luis Obispo team can offer you a range of treatment options to improve your skin.

What Are the Signs?

Signs of excessive acne and scarring are tough to ignore. Having acne on your face, forehead, and chin can be especially prominent and troubling for some of us. Typical signs of this problem include the appearance of whiteheads, blackheads, uneven texture, and tender lumps all over your face and/or body. This concern is often not only difficult to look at but can cause a lot of discomfort as well.
