Annoying, unsightly and in most cases painful, acne is the most common skin condition and Acne Treatment is the most effective way to fight persistent spots and pimples and make them vanish.
Acne can have a devastating impact on our self-confidence, causing embarrassment in our personal and business relationships. It is most likely to affect teenagers and young adults until age 30, but in rare circumstances, acne breakouts may be seen in adults aged 50 and over.
Acne Treatment is the most common dermatological treatment for blemishes and scars caused by this inflammatory skin disease. Not only does acne affect our skin health, but it may also result in serious distress and thus, have a negative impact on our lives.
At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, we offer a range of successful and completely personalized Acne Treatments and solution plans. Depending upon the severity of the condition, treatment approaches are classified into:
The ideal method for treating mild, common, adolescent and pregnancy acne, while it is also administered as an adjuvant to systemic treatment. Facial acne responds better to topical treatment than acne situated on the torso.
Topical agents used to treat acne are mostly antimicrobial or keratolytic. Among the most commonly used types of medications are: Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoid Acid, Resorcinol teamed with Sulfur and Salicylic Acid, and Azelaic Acid.
Additionally, in some cases, adequate doses of UV B light are used to treat acne by including mild erythema that leads to skin exfoliation.
In cases that Topical Treatment fails to eliminate acne, Systemic Administration of Antibiotics, Hormonal Treatment and Treatment with Systemic Retinoids might be required
Antibiotics are the cornerstones in acne treatment. They should be administered for at least 3 months or more, until the acne pimples subside.
Hormonal acne treatment primarily involves high-dose Estrogen treatment or a combination of Antiandrogens and Estrogens. This acne treatment is ideal for women who are already using oral contraceptives.
Although the results we get from Treatment with Systemic Retinoids are not immediate, many patients report it is “the best Acne Treatment they have ever tried”. During treatment with the 13-cis-retinoid acid, all patients develop skin dryness. Patients with relative susceptibility may experience nosebleeds, while, more rarely, temporary hyperlipidaemia may be caused– thus, it is recommended that blood lipid and liver function tests be performed before the initiation of treatment. Generally, a full treatment cycle usually suffices.
Lastly, due to teratogenic effects of Treatment with Systemic Retinoids, patients must always use contraception, and continue its use for at least three months after the end of treatment.
Acne Treatment is ideal for achieving dramatic reduction of acne symptoms from:
Acne Treatment is a totally individualized treatment, suited to the patient’s needs and specific skin type.
Therefore, the results as well as the timeline for achieving them are largely dependent upon the nature of your acne, the severity of the problem, the area and the extent of body surface being treated and lastly, the treatment that is being followed.
If there is anything about acne treatment that can be said with confidence, it is that no single treatment works for every single type of acne. At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, our experienced Dermatologists will offer advanced diagnosis related to your skin and a treatment plan designed to meet your individual needs.
