Is acne a major concern for you or your children? This skin condition not only burdens children during their teen years, but it is often seen in adulthood too. Whether caused by stress or changes in the body, acne is a troubling skin disorder that Dr. Jason Green, a Deerfield Beach dermatologist, sees patients for on a regular basis.
Acne vulgaris, the technical term for those pesky pimples we all know and loathe, is a common chronic skin disease that mostly affects the face, but can be found on the back and chest as well. Studies show that 85% of young adults aged 12-25 are affected globally, and 80% of Americans are affected at some point in their life. Out of these Americans with acne, 20% of them suffer from severe cases, which can sometimes cause permanent physical scarring, and can in turn affect one’s self esteem and mental health.
Thankfully, a brand new, first-in-class acne treatment has been approved by the FDA called Seysara. This oral antibiotic is used for the treatment of moderate to severe acne in patients who are 9-years-old and older. The medication is taken once per day, with or without food, and can significantly reduce inflammatory lesions on the skin in as early as three weeks after the treatment has begun. Seysara is considered a major medical milestone for the skincare industry. Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is always on the lookout to bring those in Boca Raton cosmetic skincare treatments, and we feel that Seysara is going to become a Boca Raton skincare staple in 2019.
You deserve to have the clear skin you desire, no matter your age or skincare type!
While this is an oral medication, it is still considered a skincare treatment, and must be prescribed by a dermatologist.
If you are suffering from moderate to severe acne and are in need of a dermatologist in Deerfield Beach to talk with about using Seysara as a treatment option, contact Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center today to schedule an appointment.
