Acne Treatment Options
Topical Creams & Antibiotics
Many people are prescribed topical creams and other medications to treat their acne. Numerous products can restore color to dark spots and help treat breakouts. They are designed to work against inflammatory acne and prevent further breakouts while also reducing the appearance of discolored areas and scars. Some medications generally work by eliminating the underlying bacteria causing the breakouts and helping to reduce inflammation around clogged pores and cysts.
– Chemical Peels – This option is very frequently used to treat existing acne and mild scarring. The top layer of skin is gently removed by a special solution, and pockmarks, scars, and discoloration are reduced as new skin cells are generated.
– Laser Therapy – Laser treatments can show great results, especially after a series of sessions. They can kill bacteria while simultaneously treating scars and discolored marks left from past breakouts.
– Microdermabrasion – This professional exfoliation treatment may be used as part of an acne treatment plan.
