Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and also one of the most mistreated skin conditions, with patients frequently turning to incorrect over the counter products.
These products are not only expensive, but often cause more harm then good.
When we want to treat acne effectively, we are looking to stimulate these main processes:
inhibition of sebum production( Face wash, Benzoyl Peroxide, Topical retinoids, the Combined pill)
destruction of bacterial growth (Benzoyl Peroxide, Topical or Oral Anti-biotics)
Increase in the shedding of skin to unclog pores (Salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide)
balancing hormones that contribute to acne growth. (Combined pill for females)
Acne that is not treated correctly or timely can lead to scarring, low self-esteem and emotional distress.
*MORAL OF THE STORY: SEE A MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO SPECIALISES IN THIS TREATMENT SOONER RATHER THAN LATER….
For severe cystic acne, Oral Retinoids like Roaccutane/Oratane are the most effective.
These Vitamin A derivative drugs are the only drugs that intervene in THREE of the major causes of acne.
However, they can have severe side effects, and not everyone is a candidate.
If you are using an oral retinoid, you must be strictly monitored by a doctor.
