All About Acne - with Dr. Sandra Lee

Hello everyone!
I get a lot of questions at the office, on my IRgos Channel - Dr. Sandra Lee (aka Dr. Pimple Popper), and on my Instagram all about Acne. What it is, how it forms and how we treat it at the dermatologists office. So I thought this would be a great topic to launch Dr. Pimple Popper University with!
So for those of you that are dealing with acne and are looking for some information and advice, for those of you that are maybe doing research for a friend or loved one, or for those of you that are just curious about skin care and dermatology, I hope this video provides some useful information and helps you understand and take better care of your skin!
If you're looking for specific information, here's what you can find in this video:
1:00 - What is Acne?
4:00 - What causes Acne?
6:10 - Acne Treatments & Procedures
8:20 - Treatments We Do in the Office
Keep the questions coming! And I hope you enjoy the video and Dr. Pimple Popper University!
Happy Popping!

    Honestly, I would be completely fine with looking at ppl with acne, if my brain didn't I imagine me scraping all of them off and eating them. I hate my mind

    My Gynocologist put me on consistent birth control pills to stop my periods. My skin cleared and I was so damn happy but then my body wasn't reacting well to the pills and he took me off them. I was so sad.

    I started getting acne when I was 11 and still have it. When I was 11, I had a blackhead on my face, for me, it comes and goes, I don't have acne badly, but I have friends who have it worse. Right now, I'm blessed.

    Acne is a bacteria and pore disorder. You might have another skin condition like a type of rosacea that can be triggered by food.

    Diet can play a big role in causing acne with some people... so I’d like to disagree with the statement of “food doesn’t cause acne” in some cases it does. Like for me when I eat a cleaner diet with less sugar and less processed foods I have less acne there’s certain vitamins that we need from healthy foods that kill acne

    I have hypertrophic scarring from cystic acne on my back. I still get an occasional cystic pimple on my back, but it's really died down after raging there for 15 years. Doctors said my acne would go away by the time I was 30, but it definitely hasn't. I still get pimples on my face, especially around my nose and chin, with the occasional cyst on my back. Because the acne on my back died down, I decided to try to get my scars from the cysts removed. It's something I have been self-conscious about for years and would just like gone. But, my dermatologist told me that the scars were lacking pigment and there was nothing she could do for me, because there is no treatment available for scars lacking pigment. She told me to cover them up with makeup and that maybe it was an underlying hormonal problem. I would really like these scars removed. Just wondering if anyone could help me with my problem?

    I have blackheads all over and always have. When I took Accutane they all disappeared along with my cystic acne, but once I went off the drug my blackheads came back. My nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead is covered in them. Will the Retin A work to get rid of them or would it be better to do another round of Accutane?

    Experts say acne is not caused by types of food, but from my own experience I can say they are wrong. From my own experience, I have noticed that butter, mayonnaise, and sodas really cause 90% of my acne and can create different types of acne. Constantly eating pasta and ramen day in and day out also is not good. Foods having low or negative nutrition seem to raise the risk for me.
