Acne Treatment Options

Seeking acne treatment from a dermatologist is the most effective method of managing this common skin condition. Your acne treatment may include one or more of the following:

Topical Treatment

Topical treatment includes the application of prescription gel, cream, or wipes that are formulated to reduce and prevent blemishes. These products typically contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide is best suited to traditional pimples that appear red and contain pus. Salicylic acid is a good option for patients that suffer from blackheads or whiteheads. Retinoids may also be used in topical treatments to clear clogged pores and reduce acne.

Oral Medication

This approach to treatment requires patients to take medication in pill form. There are different types of acne medications, including retinoid pills, antibiotics (only ideal for short-term use), and some types of birth control.

Emergency Treatment

Our dermatologist offers emergency acne treatment to address cysts and other blemishes that require immediate attention. Cortisone shots and light therapy are effective in shrinking the pimple and reducing swelling.

Cosmetic Treatments

We can also combine cosmetic dermatology treatments in your acne treatment plan. Light therapy can be used to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Existing blemishes or scars can be minimized with treatments to speed up exfoliation, such as chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, and microdermabrasion.
