Acne is a very common skin condition caused by many factors. Hormones, bacteria, and genetics are the biggest causes of acne.
Fighting acne depends on the patient: how severe is the acne? How much acne scarring has occurred? Does the patient have drug allergies? Is there a hormonal imbalance? Is the patient willing to take Accutane and other oral medications for acne?
Severe and moderate acne should be seen by a dermatologist so that the patient can learn about options that include Accutane and oral antibiotics.
At the skin level, the bacteria that cause acne can be battled with topical creams that include Retin A (Rx), benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, Hydroquinone (Rx) and Vitamin C serum.
Adding professional chemical peels is a must to get good results. Salicylic acid improves the condition of the skin which helps prevent the bacteria from taking hold.
