Culture Trip interviewed some of NYC’s best dermatologists about acne. And lets face it, its a big issue in the big city and acne can wreck havoc on your busy day, as well as your self-esteem.
However it is not just the city lights and nights that can cause acne. Dr. Michele Green mentions that “There are both genetic and hormonal reasons why people tend to break out with acne,” says Green.
For instance, “Acne tends to run in families” – but you can break the trend by seeing a dermatologist and find out what the right solution for you is. Because while “products can help manage adult acne”, not every product is right for every type of acne.
And, over the past decade, “laser procedures such as the V-beam Laser helps to treat acne and the redness that is caused by acne. Lasers such as Fraxel and eMatrix help treat patients with acne scars.
To fight acne, Dr. Green recommends “Oil free, non-comedogenic makeup is what is best to conceal acne. Some even contain some blemish or spot control ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid” and not stay away from picking it, her advice on fighting a new pimple is “to use a drying lotion and cleanser and apply a topical antibiotic ointment. If it is a large cyst you should consult your dermatologist for a cortisone injection to prevent scarring.”
