In addition to growing wiser, one of the benefits of getting older is supposed to be freeing yourself from acne blemishes. However, many Deerfield patients do not experience this benefit and continue to have acne breakouts throughout their adult years. Some Acne Treatmentpatients even begin to experience acne in their 30's and beyond, even if they did not have acne as teenagers.

Our Deerfield dermatologists are highly accustomed to treating adult acne, and embarrassment should not keep any patient away from seeking care. One of the first steps is to identify what causes in a person’s life could be leading to adult acne. These include:

  • family history of acne breakouts
  • fluctuating hormone levels, especially for women
  • hair or skincare products that contain oils
  • side effect of a medical condition, such as polycystic ovary syndrome
  • side effect of medications
  • stress

One or more of these causes can combine to cause adult acne. If you have tried over-the-counter products such as benzoyl peroxide and/or salicylic acid, yet nothing has cleared your acne, it may be time to make an appointment with Deerfield Dermatology Associates.

Adult acne may require stronger treatments available only by prescription as well as a combination of treatments to be most effective. As adult acne sufferers well know, adult acne can be especially stubborn to treat. Examples of prescription treatments our Deerfield dermatologists may prescribe include antibiotics to kill off acne-causing bacteria, retinol creams to encourage cell turnover and un-clog pores and/or laser treatments to kill bacteria in pores. Even making small changes to your skincare routine, may also help clear skin. With a thorough evaluation, our dermatologists can help you determine the best treatment options.

For more information on how you can see clearer skin and control adult acne, please call our Deerfield dermatology practice at (847) 480-0004.
