Anne Marie McNeill, MD, PhD, is a board-certified dermatologist with a PhD in pharmacology. Her practice is located in Orange County, CA. This blog discusses Acne Scarring, and what you can do about it. Check out Anne’s other blogs at Your Dermatologist.

What causes Acne Scarring?

Dr. McNeill: Picking!!!! No matter how much acne, or how large acne cysts become, they will not cause scarring if left untouched. The skin may hyperpigment and become darker for a while, but this hyperpigmentation will not be permanent. Picking at acne can cause scars that are permanent. Take Care to lessen hyperpigmentation with a hat.

Republican Challenge – Fit For Life Summer Challenge

Illinois Republican Aaron Schock is a site for sore eyes on the cover of Men’s Health Magazine, but he is doing much more than just showing off his six pack abs. He is challenging all of us to get fit for life this summer, with Men’s Health Magazine’s Fit For Life Summer Challenge. Men’s Health Magazine, and Congressman Schock want us all to know that $8 out of every $10 that we spend on health care, is spent on a disease or condition that would be preventable if we took better care of ourselves. That is a staggering statistic that affects us all. So this summer, log onto Men’s Health Magazine and join the challenge. Get coworkers and family to join with you, and get Fit For Life. “Do it for yourself. Do it for your family. Do it for your country”.

What to do when Acne Persists

Doctor Anne Marie McNeill is a board-certified dermatologist with a PhD in pharmacology.  Her practice is located in Orange County, CA.  She sat down to discuss acne, which no one seems to be able to get rid of, no matter what their age. 

Is it my imagination, or is everyone more stricken with acne these days?

Dr. McNeill:  There does appear to be more prevalence and persistence.  Interestingly, we are finding that certain cultures, such as Japan, are experiencing more acne compared with previous generations.  In other, remote cultures, such as tribal communities in Africa, there is still no incidence of acne.
