Adult and Teen Acne city, state
Acne Treatment San Francisco, CA

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most common skin condition in the United States is acne. Teens are not the only ones who have acne; adults can get acne as well. Acne breakouts develop when there is a buildup of bacteria underneath the surface of the skin behind clogged pores. Both teens and adults dealing with acne can experience low self-esteem. Dr. Evan Ransom at San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery can help treat your acne and gain your confidence back.

Understanding the Differences between Adult and Teen Acne

Teens usually have oily skin, especially in the T-zone. The T-zone is made up of the forehead, nose, and chin. Teen acne is brought about by puberty and when puberty ends so does the signs of acne. Teen acne appears as whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, and cysts. Teen acne is most often on the face and neck. Cell turnover is faster and skin is more resilient in teens resulting in a faster recovery with appropriate skin treatments. Typically boys are more prone to acne than girls. Over-the-counter solutions containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid can help keep skin clean and prevent additional breakouts.

Adults especially women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s can develop acne. The skin of adults is either dry or combination skin and tends to be more sensitive. Adult acne can appear on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Adult acne can be caused by environmental factors, medications, or changes in the body. Over-the-counter products for adults do not have the same effect for treating acne as teens because of the sensitivity of their skin. Adults may be inclined to seek professional help.

I had several nasal/sinus issues including a severely deviated septum and a dorsal hump, which I wasn't crazy about. Dr Ransom did both the medical and aesthetic parts of my surgery and he did a wonderful job! While I did have some swelling, I didn't experience much bruising at all. I loved that he left the natural look of my nose just making small corrections. My breathing has GREATLY improved. His office staff was super helpful in scheduling and making sure payment and everything was very clear. I am very, very, very pleased with my results!!

I had a terrible surf accident in Bali and needed to get 50 stitches to repair what the reef did to my face. I had emergency cosmetic surgery in Bali the day of the accident. Immediately when i got back to the states i was introduced to Dr Ransom through some mutual friends. I was searching for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to help in my recovery. He and his team have been amazing! he helped establish a plan for my post-op wound care/treatment and administered some initial laser treatments. Dr Ransom and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very patient / helpful. I am very grateful for their help and support. I am finally looking normal again!

I had three issues with my nose - which inhibited my breathing: 1- broken nose, 2 - narrow nostrils that collapsed when I inhaled through my nose, 3 - deviated septum. When I was living in New York, I went to see a doctor about my breathing issues, and he said my skin was too thin and there was likely nothing he could do to rectify the problem. Dr. Ransom was recommended by an ENT I saw through One Medical. As soon as he saw him, he said he could easily fix my nose, and remove the bump that had formed from the trauma. His confidence and strong sense of self immediately put me at ease, and I had little doubt that he could accomplish exactly what he promised. He showed me a modified picture of my nose , and really liked what he proposed. The end result very closely matched what he promised. Not only can I now breath much more easily through my nose, it looks much better. He managed to make it look like an improved version of itself, however I still look like me, and unless I tell anyone I had it done, it's not overly noticeable, which I prefer. I'm pretty vain and very critical, and I can say that Dr. Ransom is great, and comes highly recommended.

Doctor Evan Ransom took my surgery on relatively short order and did a wonderful job. He is very talented and has a nice friendly professional support staff. I can not thank him enough, he was calm, caring, professional and interested in the follow results of his work . He seemed to bring a certain artistry to the profession.

Dr Ransom is very kind, honest, and conscience doctor. I was referred by my best friend, she is also Doctor Ransom patient. She has so much good things said about Doctor Ransom. So I had a face lift done by Doctor Ransom on July 2015. He did a wonderful job on my face and I have a lot of compliments on my face. So if anyone want to get their face done. I would highly recommended Doctor Ransom to you. I give Doctor Ransom a five stars.

I have currently been getting botox regularly with Dr. Ransom and he does a fantastic job. My previous doctor's office moved to another location where it was no longer convenient. I didn't realize what I was missing until I went to Dr. Ransom. I felt really comfortable, but most important he did a terrific job blowing my previous doctor out of the park. (Sometimes it's good switch it up a bit to make sure you are getting the best treatment.) On top of that, Dee the office manager is an incredible asset to the office. She personalizes your visit and relationship with the office to an extent I have never experienced before. I even get follow up calls to see how I am doing after a treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ransom for his great work, and his team's impeccable customer service.

Dr. Ransom and Dee are the BEST! Whether it's aesthetic or reconstructive, I'd trust him over and over again with my face.
