The choice of acne treatment depends upon the type of acne and its severity.
⦁ Topical medications like Acetic acid, Benzoyl peroxide, cleansers, and antibacterial creams reduce oil production in your skin. As a result, you get rid of acne.
⦁ Oral medications like antibiotics and retinoids help to prevent acne. We prescribe zinc supplements also for your acne treatment. However, the choice of medications depends upon the seriousness of the problems.
⦁ Corticosteroid injections are beneficial to eradicate large and painful pimples. It is a type of steroid solution that can give you an instant result.
⦁ Chemical peels are another method of treating acne. Here we apply a layer of glycolic acid solution over your affected area of your skin. It removes the damaged layer of your skin. It may burn your skin slightly.
⦁ Laser treatment can work very well to treat acne and related scars. Instead, it is the best option for the treatment of deeper scars. The laser beam damages the epidermal layer of your skin as well as prevents the acne bacteria from growing.
⦁ You can avail of the extraction treatment also. You can have your blemishes been extracted by squeezing, popping, or scratching. Here, we use sterilized instruments to undergo the process.
Remember, you should not touch or try to pop or bust your acne. It takes at least 3 to 6 months for you to see a noticeable improvement. Do not expect your acne to vanish instantly as the results take time to show.
