Acne Q&A

Why do I have acne?

Acne blemishes such as cysts, pimples, nodules, and other imperfections develop when your pores clog. Skin cells shed on an ongoing basis, but in some cases, dead skin cells build up inside pores. 

Oftentimes, this issue occurs when your skin produces too much oil (also known as sebum). This moisturizing substance prevents dryness and irritation. However, excessive oil traps dead skin cells inside pores, which is why you might develop acne breakouts. 

Anyone of any age can battle with acne breakouts. Your risk is higher due to:

  • Family history of acne
  • Frequent skin pressure, as with wearing a helmet
  • Hormonal fluctuations that occur during your menstrual cycle

In any case, if you have acne, you’re not alone. Meriden MedSpa has just the right solutions to help you get your skin health back on track. 

When should I seek treatment for acne?

Acne, even if it’s minor, is never something you should ignore. It’s important to find out why you have acne so your provider can help you find the proper treatment to prevent skin damage. Meriden MedSpa encourages you to come into the clinic for an acne evaluation if:

  • You’re an adult and are experiencing a sudden acne breakout
  • Your breakouts leave you feeling self-conscious
  • You develop painful cysts or nodules

You should also visit Meriden MedSpa if you have an acne breakout or are at risk of developing acne scars (common with cysts and nodules). 

Is there an effective treatment for acne?

Meriden MedSpa provides a host of effective, modern acne solutions to treat your current breakout while helping your skin heal. The Meriden MedSpa team may recommend any of the following acne treatment options:

  • Prescription-strength topical medications
  • Chemical peels
  • Facials
  • Microdermabrasion or dermaplaning
  • Personalized laser facial

If you have deep acne scars, your Meriden MedSpa provider may recommend microneedling or dermal fillers to minimize the appearance of your scar and smooth out your skin.

If you struggle with acne and haven’t found the right treatment solution, contact Meriden MedSpa for an evaluation. You can call the nearest office or request one online at any time.
