Acne in Atlanta, GA
Serving Tucker, Decatur, Chamblee, & Brookhaven, GA
What causes acne?
The cause of acne is multifactorial. There is a genetic component that predisposes people to develop acne. Then there are environmental factors such as diet, lifestyle, hormones, oil glands, bacteria, and inflammatory immune states. Testosterone, a type of hormone, plays a major role in acne amongst men and women. Acne includes not only angry red pimples, but also cysts, whiteheads, blackheads, and milia which are tiny skin-colored or white bumps under the skin. Dr. Hill asks strategic questions and does a physical examination to determine the cause of your acne and to create the best-customized treatment solution for you.
How do you treat adult acne?
Teens are not the only ones who deal with acne. Dr. Hill understands the social distress that adult-onset acne can cause and that quick resolution is important. Whether by oral medications, chemical peels, facials, procedures to remove blackheads and whiteheads, or topical creams, Dr. Hill aims at ridding your complexion of blemishes from daily stress or hormones.
