About Acne Treatment

Acne Treatment

Acne is caused by the oil glands in the skin becoming blocked by sebum, skin cells and hair. Most people will suffer with a degree of acne in their lives, but for some it can be severe and can cause low self-esteem. For patients with very severe or persistent acne, treatment can help alleviate symptoms and reduce scarring.

Popular treatments for acne include medication, topical creams and gels, and light or laser therapy to treat the acne.

Before Acne Treatment abroad

Patients should consult with the dermatologist to establish which course of treatment is best for them.

How is it performed

The type of acne treatment varies with each patient and on the basis of the type of acne which they have. For mild acne, topical creams and gels which contain retinoid are usually recommended to unclog the pores. This treatment may be combined with an antiobiotic which targets the bacteria and reduces the redness and inflammation of the acne.

For patients who have acne which is triggered by hormones, usually teenage girls and women, a combined oral contraceptive pill may be prescribed to control the hormones, and reduce the outbreaks of acne.

Patients who are suffering with severe acne, may undergo light or laser therapy to treat the acne. With some light therapies, a medication may be applied to the face and then pulses of light, which is most often blue light, is applied to the area to kill the bacteria, as well as to reduce the inflammation and swelling. Light therapy usually requires several sessions.

Materials

Treatments include a number of active ingredients. Some treatments include: Resorcinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, sulfur, Retin-A and azelaic acid among others.

Acne Treatment
Acne treatments range from the use of creams and gels, antibiotics, medication, and light therapy.

What to expect after Acne Treatment

Post procedure care

In the most severe cases, patients may be prescribed Isotretinoin which requires ongoing monitoring while the patient is taking the drug.
