Acne Treatment Specialist in Austin

Acne is a damaging skin condition and Dr. Saya Obayan specializes in treating patients within the Austin Area dealing with chronic acne.

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition appearing on the face, back and chest that is the result of inflammation of the sebaceous glands. The glands produce excess oil and the presence of dead skin and bacteria can produce the pus sometimes seen in acne lesions. Some of the symptoms you can see on your skin include pimples, blackheads, bumps, and in more severe cases, cysts. Dr. Obayan sees and treats many patients with chronic acne and puts forth a plan to deal with the root cause and symptoms.

What does acne look like?

There are six common types or stages of acne:

  • Blackheads, Whiteheads, and Papules are commonly known as comedo and are a basic acne lesion formed from plugging of the pores in the skin.
  • Pimples or Pustules contain pus and have a red base.
  • Nodules and cysts are formed deeper in the skin; these are painful and cause pus and scars.

How do you get rid of or treat Acne?

Patients do experience some pain with different fillers; however, the Hyaluronic acid used by Dr. Obayan contains the local anaesthetic, lidocaine, so most patients experience minor levels of pain.
