Dr. Silvers’ brother suffered from severe acne during his teens and twenties. Dr. Silvers truly copies the feelings of patients who have acne, and sympathizes with them. He realizes the social toll acne takes on people. Although most people develop acne in their teenage years, many develop it in their twenties or later. Development of acne is a multi-factorial cascade.The distribution of acne sometimes provides clues about its main cause.
At Brentwood Dermatology we address dietary, hormonal, and skin care factors behind acne, and tailor a regimen that fits each individual patient’s needs and expectations. Our goal is to help the patient have dependably clear skin with the least prescribed medications. Patients are usually started off on dietary recommendations, and a few prescribed medication. The goal is to taper off the prescribed meds.
