Acne Treatments [ Pimples, Breakouts ]
What Are Acne Treatments
Acne is a symptom of an imbalance deep within the skin’s pores that doesn’t necessarily disappear after adolescence, unfortunately. When oil or sebum and bacteria are clogged in the skin with dead skin cells, a pimple surfaces. That pimple is an inflammatory response that attempts to heal the skin, and when there is excessive inflammation the resulting infection can become more difficult to manage.
Think all pimples are the same? Not necessarily. The cause of the flare-up actually determines how the pimple will form. Once you and your doctor have identified the type of acne you have—mild, moderate or severe—a course of acne treatments will be determined.
Your physician has a variety of options to treat your acne. They include:
- Laser and light treatments
- Topical Agents
- Chemical peels
