When you are a teenager, acne can be hard to deal with. When you are a young adult who still has acne, it can be even more difficult to deal with. When you reach your late twenties or early thirties and acne remains a problem in spite of trying numerous ways to eradicate it, you have reached a point at which it is imperative that you make an appointment with an experienced dermatologist and find out where your problem stems from. From there your dermatologist will be able to offer advice on how to proceed, began treatment, and help you achieve the skin you have been waiting long enough for.
Acne can be cause by such a multitude of triggers that breaking it down can be almost maddening without the aid of medical science. Popular blogs and websites for young girls offer advice such as keeping a food journal, keep track of emotions that might cause the release of stress and acne causing hormones, and pay attention to soaps, lotions, make ups and perfumes to check for reactions. This advice is great in theory, but it sometimes can take as long as a week or more for a trigger to cause the skin to breakout. Trying to make correlations between three different categories and outbreaks that can happen anywhere from 1 day to 12 days later opens up a can of worms that most people don’t even have the time to deal with.
A dermatologist, like Dr. Raphael Darvish of the premier dermatology and cosmetic center, Skinpeccable in Los Angeles, can often pinpoint the cause of a patient’s acne after a short series of tests if not a single appointment. Medical history, allergy tests, skin samples and even questions about lifestyle can all help the doctor, who relies on extensive knowledge and years of training, to arrive at a conclusion much faster than a patient could on their own. It can often be as simple as making a single life change or as easy as using a topical or oral medication. Dr. Darvish can help children, teens, and adults with various instances of acne and other skin conditions. As a dermatologist, Dr. Darvish has studied every imaginable skin condition and is a certified medical expert capable of providing a number of treatments for disorders, viral, fungal, and bacterial conditions and also a number of cosmetic skin treatments including laser facials and other laser-assisted surgeries including laser hair removal and other popular cosmetic treatments like Thermage and fractional skin tightening.
