Acne is one of the most common skin ailments in the U.S., impacting approximately 60 million people each year. While many cases are mild and may be controlled with medication and a good at-home skin care routine, many patients have severe acne that leads to scarring. Acne normally is a blend of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts, as well as other red, itchy, and swollen areas of the skin. Caused by a blend of clogged pores, dead skin cells, and bacteria, it is most commonly found in teens but can affect adults well into their 40s. The trained professionals at Cape Family Medical Clinic help patients of all ages achieve clearer, more luminous skin through a variety of innovative treatment methods.

While store-bought medications can help acne, sometimes they do not treat severe acne efficiently. Our team offers numerous treatment options to control and manage acne and clear up its standard symptoms. After a skin consultation with one of our providers, a customized treatment plan will be created to improve the health of your skin. Treatment options include oral antibiotics (such as tetracycline or minocycline), as well as topical solutions and creams containing sulfur, retinoids, or benzoyl peroxide. Our providers take a preventive approach and often talk with patients about at-home methods to help maintain clear skin, such as using cleansers and moisturizing creams, reducing stress, using UV protection, and eating a healthy diet.
