Acne affects millions of people from all different parts of the world. It can be embarrassing and highly damaging to your skin if it is prolonged and untreated. At Memorial Clinic, our Dermatology team can help to improve your skin health by offering a wide range of acne treatments.
When a person starts to develop acne, they might try several different over-the-counter topical treatments and washes to try to make it go away. Most over-the-counter treatments focus on reducing the oil production in the affected area, speeding up the growth of skin cells, fighting the bacterial infection, and/or reducing the inflammation in the affected area. However, those washes and creams might not be enough for some of the more stubborn cases of acne.
Sometimes, you can have more success in treating acne when you are prescribed a medication or therapy by a professional dermatologist. These therapies can include:
- More potent topical medications
- Oral contraceptives
- Laser or light therapy
- Cosmetic procedures
If you have stubborn acne and can't seem to accomplish your desired result from over-the-counter treatments, the use of one or more of these prescribed treatments can help you win the battle for clearer skin.
When you make an appointment to meet with one of our dermatologists, they will advise you on the benefits and risks for each treatment option.
You don’t have to live with painful or irritating acne anymore. Call our Dermatology Clinic today to schedule an appointment so you can finally get rid of your acne.
