What is Acne Treatment?
Acne, also called acne vulgaris, is a chronic skin condition that occurs when the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne most commonly appears on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25, but some older and younger people are affected.
Depending on the degree of your Acne, our dermatologist may recommend one or more of the following: creams to be applied at home, antibiotics, medical facials, Hydrafacial, LED light therapy, or in more severe cases, he may chose to perform a medium-depth chemical peel.
In certain situations, especially when the acne is causing scarring, a course of Isotretinoin must be prescribed to the patient.
