What causes acne?

Acne is a widespread skin condition that forms when your pores get clogged with excess sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria. You can develop whiteheads, blackheads, or red swollen pimples or cysts when the bacteria cause infection and inflame your clogged pore. Acne is primarily caused by your hormones. Anyone can develop acne, although it’s more common in teenagers.

What causes wrinkles?

As you age, your body’s production of new cells slows. This is most apparent in your skin as your collagen and elastin levels decrease. As a result, your skin loses elasticity and its ability to bounce back out of the folds created when you smile or make another facial expression, leaving fine lines and wrinkles on the delicate skin of your face.

The ultraviolet rays in sunlight accelerate the aging process by damaging the elastin cells in your skin more quickly than your body can produce new cells.

What are the available dermatology services?

Dr. Hernandez offers a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of your skin. For example, if you have acne, he can prescribe oral and topical treatments to reduce the oil and bacteria on your skin. However, if you’re more concerned about wrinkles and fine lines, he offers Botox® and dermal filler injections to smooth your skin for a more youthful appearance.

He also provides prescriptions, including anti-inflammatories such as topical and oral corticosteroids for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Dr. Hernandez also offers wart and mole removal procedures.

If you’re living with a skin condition that disrupts your life or makes you feel self-conscious, call DWH Medical Center or schedule a consultation online today to talk to Dr. Hernandez about your skin and get personalized dermatology treatments.
