Acne & Rosacea

What Is Acne?

Acne is an inflammatory condition of the hair follicle and oil glands, most often on the face, chest and back. It is most commonly thought of as a teenage disease but can affect a wide range of ages from infants to adolescents to adults. In fact, about 30% of acne starts in adulthood. Acne is the most common skin condition so it comes as no surprise that acne is a common reason for seeing a dermatologist. Dr. Ortleb is an expert in treating acne and will work with you to find a safe and effective strategy for helping you to achieve clear skin. In addition to treating your acne, treatment options for acne scarring and residual discoloration can be discussed as well.

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea, a common skin condition affecting 16 million Americans, is a constellation of skin findings that produces dramatic redness and sensitivity in the skin along with acne-like lesions, facial flushing, and dilated blood vessels. There are several known triggers in rosacea including sunlight, emotional stress, heat, alcohol and spicy foods. Treatment usually requires a multimodal approach that Dr. Ortleb can tailor to your skin type.
