Acne

What to do when you have Acne?

The best way to control acne prone skin is to use products and ingredients that promote healthy skin functioning and cell turnover. Ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and retinoic acid, in the right concentrations and formulations, can help control overactive sebaceous (oil) glands and clogged follicles that lead to overgrowth of virulent strains of the C. Acnes bacteria. The result is a reduction in pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. These key ingredients, combined with the right diet and supplements, offer your clearest path to radiant, smooth, acne-free skin.

Dr. Day often recommends a variety of medications, topicals, and skin care products to be used in combination with in-office treatments to achieve clear and beautiful skin quickly! 

Facts & Myths

Fact: Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. 

Myth: You outgrow acne after your teenage years. One of the most common questions we get about acne is “why am I getting acne at my age??!?”

While it is true that 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 have at least minor acne, you can get breakouts at any age, even well into your 30s and 40s. Sometimes, acne does not even begin until after your teenage years.

Fact: Dr. Day is a national and international expert on Acne, and her book 100 Questions and Answers about Acne, is an excellent resource.
