Cystic Acne

80 results

Painful and problematic, cystic acne can be a cause of constant concern. Unlike modest breakouts that may happen on occasion, cystic acne affect larger areas of the skin and can leave permanent scarring. Without treatment, this type of acne-causing bacteria and clogged pores can last for years. The bacteria trapped inside causes the surrounding area of your skin to become red and inflamed, leading to serious discomfort in your day-to-day.

Commonly caused by hormones called androgens, cystic acne symptoms can be alleviated by way of potently proven skin care treatments. Dermstore offers you the brands you can only find in dermatologists' offices so you know youll get results. Backed by dermatologists for their innovative formulations and efficacy, these bestselling brands make it their mission to bring out the brilliance in your skin. Often forgotten when treating acne, it's important to nourish and soothe the skin rather than strip it to a raw state.

Drying out the skin doesn't necessarily prevent acne since cystic acne-causing bacteria can start from underneath the surface. With gentle applications of glycolic acid or benzoyl peroxide, these products treat cystic acne at its source. Sloughing through excess oils, unclogging bacteria from pores and soothing away irritation all at once, acne relief is but moments away with our handpicked selection of skin comfort essentials.
