Acne

We've all been there. An unexpected breakout right before a big event, stubborn pimples that refuse to go away–acne is a common challenge affecting many of us, especially during adolescence.

In fact, according to PubMed, it is estimated to affect 9.4% of the global population, making it the eighth most prevalent disease worldwide. Yale Medicine also stated that it peaks in adolescence and early adulthood, affecting around 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24.

Here at Natural Way Pediatric Dermatology, we genuinely understand how it can impact your child's confidence and well-being. That's why we're dedicated to providing them with effective, holistic solutions.

What Is Acne?

A skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This often results in different types of skin blemishes, including:

  • Blackheads and whiteheads

  • Papules and pustules

  • Nodules and cysts

It can appear on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Although it is not a life-threatening condition–it still can cause emotional distress and sometimes scarring if left untreated.

Causes

Hormonal changes

During puberty, hormones that are called androgens increase in both boys and girls, which causes the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, leading to clogged pores and acne.

Genetics

If your parents or siblings have a history of acne, you are more likely to develop it too.

Poor diet

Studies suggest that consuming certain foods like dairy, carbohydrates, and other sugary items may worsen it.

Stress

When we're stressed, our bodies do produce more cortisol which stimulates oil production and leads to acne.

How We Can Help

Personalized Treatment Plans 

We genuinely understand that every child has unique skin that requires a tailored approach. That's why we begin with a comprehensive health assessment to identify their specific skin type and any underlying issues that could potentially be triggering the acne. We then develop a plan targeting their concern while promoting their overall skin health too. This might include a combination of topical treatments, targeted supplements, dietary changes, and as well as some lifestyle adjustments.

Holistic Approach

We incorporate natural, non-toxic products in our treatments, which truly work synergistically to not only combat acne but also nourish and rejuvenate the skin. We prefer this because it promotes long-term skin health without any harsh side effects often associated with conventional treatments.

Educational Guidance

We don't just want to treat your child's skin--we also want to empower them with knowledge. This includes teaching them about proper cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, as well as nutrition's role in skin health.

Emotional Support

Here at NWPD, we listen, reassure, and encourage your child throughout their skincare journey, and committed to supporting your child every step of the way.
