acne 1ACNE  is the most common skin condition in the United States. It frequently begins in the teenage years, but can affect adults of any age group. Acne lesions can consist of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), inflammatory bumps (pimples and pustules), and deeper lumps such as nodules and cysts. These lesions can occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. The severity of the lesions and picking at the lesions may lead to scarring.

The physicians at Limmer Dermatology have many treatment options to offer. These include topical medications, oral antibiotics, and even isotretinoin (Accutane) for severe, scarring cases. Also, procedures such as microdermabrasion, extraction of lesions, and photodynamic therapy (Blue-light) can be very helpful.
