Plano area dermatologist discuss the diagnosis and treatment of acne
Patients in the Plano, TX area who are struggling with acne are welcome to contact the team of DSA Dermatology. Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell provide a variety of acne treatment solutions.
How can acne be treated?
Treatment options for acne may include the following:
- Light therapies – exposure to certain lights can help in rejuvenating the skin and targeting bacteria contributing to the acne problem.
- Topical creams – the most common treatment is topical medications. While over-the-counter creams are popular, they are not always strong enough for severe cases of acne. Prescription-strength solutions may be more desirable.
- Oral medications – sometimes the issue is better handled from the inside out. Certain oral medications can be prescribed and taken regularly to control and even reverse acne.
- Chemical peels – removing the upper layer of skin with chemical peels can help in stimulating the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen production. Chemical peels can also reduce the amount of oils and bacteria on the surfaces of the skin contributing to acne.
- Laser therapies – laser light can target bacteria on the skin and help restore its health and beauty quickly with regular treatments over time.
- Skin care regimen – developing an effective way to cleanse and tone the skin can also help reduce acne.
Which treatment choice is right for me?
Treatment for acne is dependent on the patient and how the body reacts to certain medications. Sometimes, it can be a trial and error process. Our team will determine the type of acne present and then work with patients to find the treatment that offers best possible results!
