Whether mild, moderate or severe, early intervention for acne is essential to help prevent permanent scarring. Dermatologists are experts in the management of acne and will tailor your treatment to your individual needs. Acne is a complex disease and treatments that offer long term cure are better than some techniques that improve your acne for a short period only.
Treatment options include:
Non-prescription creams and lotions
Prescription creams prescribed by your dermatologist
Hormonal type medication
LED light therapy and comedone extractions
Acne often causes scarring redness and pigmentation.
For therapeutic options, see Acne Scarring.
