Acne Treatment in Monroe, LA

Blemishes are one of the most common complaints among adults and children. From the surface, acne appears to be an easy problem to remedy, but chronic acne is complex. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers acne treatments for both men and women in Monroe, Shreveport,  the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.

What is Acne?

Acne is a condition that develops due to a combination of problems with the skin, and this is why many over-the-counter products do not work for people who have chronic acne. Issues that lead to acne are:

  • Dead skin cells
  • Oils on the skin
  • Bacteria

Although it appears that acne is a sign of poor hygiene, the skin can be relatively clean and still develop blemishes.

What Are the Benefits of Acne Treatment?

Professional acne treatment addresses all of the aspects of blemishes without damaging healthy skin. Your breakouts occur less frequently and are less severe. Over time, you are able to control acne and may have no breakouts.

How Do I Know If I Have Acne?

Acne is a general term that describes several types of blemishes that develop on the skin, such as:

  • Whiteheads
  • Nodules
  • Blackheads
  • Pustules
  • Cysts
  • Papules

Acne can develop anywhere on your face and body, but is most common on the chest, face, back, buttocks, upper arms, and neck.

What Should I Expect from Acne Treatment?

The goal of professional acne treatment is to improve your skin health so that blemishes cannot develop. The process of finding the right treatments for you can take time, and your skin may break out when you begin treatment. Give your skin several months to balance and improve from within the pores.

How Much Does Acne Treatment Cost in Monroe, LA?

A personalized treatment plan is the best approach to acne treatment. Dr. Hopkins develops your plan during the appointment. Once we have her recommendations, we can discuss pricing before you proceed with treatment.
