Acne doesn't just happen during puberty, but also occurs in adults as a hormone-induced skin disease. Severe acne with a very inflammatory disease course can leave scars if it is not treated.
Adapted therapy by our skin specialists helps relieve inflammation, prevent scar formation and reduce or eliminate existing scars. In our dermatology consultation, we analyze your skin and show you your individual plan to successfully treat acne.
The sebaceous glands are meant to keep our skin supple and protect it from environmental influences. If a gland produces too much oil and the horny layer blocks the outlet, the pore becomes blocked, bacteria can collect there – the gland becomes inflamed and a pimple develops. Areas of the skin with a high density of sebaceous glands are affected particularly severely with acne – especially the face, chest and back.
Our skin experts can help you in two ways.
Therapy for acute acne is performed without anesthesia. For the treatment of acne scars, we offer you anesthesia, depending on the method, which ranges from local anesthesia with a cream to sedation. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.
Dr. Birgit Buxmeyer: "Acute acne can only be successfully addressed through repeated, consistent treatment. Acne scars can be made nearly invisible with modern laser procedures."
