Acne

Common Skin Condition 

 

EXPERIENCE COUNTS!

Dr. Michael J. Tomcik,M.D., is a highly skilled, board certified dermatologist with over 35 years of experience.

 

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged and inflamed due to overproduction of oil and bacteria. Hormones, especially during adolescence can stimulate excess production of oil but the exact cause of acne is unclear. Acne occurs in 85% of teenagers and can reoccur in about 15% of adults. Treatment involves education in effective skin cleansers, topical and systemic antibiotics, avoidance of irritants and in severe cases, Isotretinoin. Acne treatments do not work overnight and treatment should continue for as long as needed to prevent acne from recurring.
