Exploring the Different Types of Acne Treatments Available

acne treatments Sebaceous glands in your skin’s hair follicles release a natural oil (sebum) that helps nourish your skin and hair. However, when a sebaceous gland becomes clogged (with dirt, dead skin cells, or its own sebum), it can form a sebaceous cyst or acne.

While acne cannot be permanently cured or prevented, it can be treated. Here are some of the most widely available acne treatments today.

Types of Acne Treatments

Chemical Peels

To prevent clogged pores and acne, it is important to regularly remove dead skin cells and oil from the hair follicle. Chemical peels are a fast and efficient way to exfoliate and cleanse the skin to keep acne at bay.

Not only do regular chemical peels make effective acne treatments, but they are also excellent at minimizing the appearance of light to moderate scarring. As the chemical peel removes dead skin cells, the skin below will reveal a brighter, clearer, and smoother layer of healthy skin.

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy, often known as PDT, is a relatively new method of acne treatment that combines light with a unique light-activated solution to specifically target and eliminate acne-causing activity. PDT is safe and effective for treating blackheads, whiteheads, and several other types of acne.

Additionally, a PDT series may help even out your skin tone and diminish the appearance of scars left behind by acne. With PDT, the best results often occur after two or three treatments spaced every two to three weeks.

Sub-Ablative Laser Therapy

Without damaging the outer layer of the skin, sub-ablative laser treatment employs the strength of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (mild energy currents) to penetrate deeper into the skin and promote collagen formation from the inside.

Collagen’s key amino acids are excellent for soothing skin inflammation. Because acne-causing bacteria often thrive in inflammatory skin conditions, reducing inflammation with the use of collagen helps prevent new acne spots from appearing on your skin.

Sub-ablative laser therapy also improves skin elasticity and reduces fine lines and wrinkles as a result.
