Acne Treatment

What Are The Different Types of Acne Treatment?

Acne treatment can be a difficult and time consuming task, but can have results that boost self-confidence.  Having clear skin is an important trait in having or obtaining elevated self-esteem. Different acne treatments include cleansers, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, topical retinal gels, alcohol and acetone, prescription medications, and oral contraceptives.  Cleansers work to clean the skin and prevent acne flare ups. Benzoyl peroxide can be used to treat forms of mild acne that helps to destroy the bacteria associated with it. Salicylic acid works by unclogging pores to prevent and resolve lesions. Topical retinal gels help to prevent pimples from even being able to form.  Alcohol and acetone help to remove oils from the skin, which can clog the pores and cause acne to form.

 

Prescription medications work to clear the skin the acne causing bacteria and reduce inflammation. Oral contraceptives can counteract the effect of male hormones that cause acne. So with a variety of methods used to treat acne, how do you know which is the right fit for you?  The best individual acne treatment will be decided for you after visiting with a dermatologist. After consulting with a professional, clearer and happy skin can be achieved.
