Acne and Blemishes

Acne is a very common skin problem, and there’s no better place to get treatment than O’Neill Cosmetic Dermatology in Mississauga. As a dermatology specialist, Dr. O’Neill has the training and experience to help you manage this condition.

Do you think acne is caused by dirt, diet or poor hygiene? No! Acne is due to hormones stimulating oil glands. The oil glands enlarge, produce oil, and plug the pores causing acne. Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts can occur, with the face, neck, shoulders, back, chest and upper arms most affected. Although acne usually starts in the teenage years, adult acne occurs also. Monthly hormonal changes, stress, certain medications and oil-based cosmetics can stimulate breakouts.

What we can do

Mild to moderate acne can often be controlled without prescription medications. Our medical aestheticians can get you started on a skin care program incorporating correct cleansing, use of therapeutic skin care products, acne extractions, acne facials, chemical peel or microdermabrasion.

Severe acne generally requires prescription medications, and a referral from your family doctor is required.
