Avatar n tn 1) What is the current and most effective treatment for Acne Inversa? (Most of my reading online was from relatively dated material) I have been taking Accutane for approximately one month and have so far not seen any favorable results.

Avatar n tn However cystic acne needs to be treated. Cystic acne is the most severe form of acne. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue than the more superficial inflammation from common acne. Since they are severe, so systemic medications are usually required. The treatment consists of topical and oral antibiotics, tretinoin, oral contraceptives in females and Intralesional corticosteroid injections. Very severe cases may need excision and drainage.
Avatar f tn One of my friends had same issue and she got an acne treatment done from a cosmetic surgery clinic, Fairview Laser Clinic in Toronto. It worked well on her. I was so surprised to see her last time with her charming old clear skin again. But I don’t know whether it work shall on for you. So better consult a skin doctor.
Avatar m tn Treatment consists of topical treatment, steroid injections, surgery, cryotherapy, radiation therpy or laser surgery.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Aside from medications and laser treatment, there are many possible management for cystic acne such as dermabrasion, phototherapy, and even surgery. Cystic acne treatment usually depends on the severity, and it is best that you discuss the management plan with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Seeking another dermatologist's opinion may also be helpful. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Even minor trauma and inflammation can leave pits and scars. Treatment is very difficult, because any procedure like laser might make the scars deeper. On the other hand, if you leave the areas alone, they may fill in at least in part over a period of months. I am concerned that you are spending as much time as you say covering up these spots. You sound as though you have become obsessed with these imperfections to the point where your normal life is being interfered with.

Avatar n tn Hello, Usually it is recommended not to have any cosmetic surgery like dermabrasion, laser treatment or plastic surgery while on accutane. Regarding the surgery for fibroadenoma, I would suggest you to discuss it with your daughter’s surgeon. Accutane may increase the chances of post surgery keloid formation and so I would suggest you to discuss this point with your daughter’s surgeon. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn I had great skin until I turned 21, at which time I developed severe cystic acne. I was on Accutane when it first came out, I've been to tons of dermatologists over the yrs, I've had steroid injections into the cysts, I've had surgery to try to "de-bulk" them - you name it, I've done it. So here I am, 32 yrs later, & I still have deep, hard, scar-filled cysts under the skin on my face - that are still actively cranking out nasty gunk on a daily basis. I have a huge one (about 1.

Avatar n tn The procedure was expensive but not as costly as where I should have gone. I will never go for another laser treatment. If you do decide on a procedure look up O'Neils Skin Rejuvenation online I know it will last at least fifteen years or more. The procedure is very expensive and you will have to stay in a California Spa for two weeks to be monitored. My relatives have had this procedure and after fifteen years they still have a smile on their face. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn If you can and want to (not because they want you too) you can sometime in the future maybe get laser treatment to lessen the acne damage. There are probably some other treatments too done by a dermatologist. I also wouldn't pick any whiteheads or pimples as this causes scarring. Cut out oily foods as this contributes to acne and don't use a wash rag or scrub the acne or pimples this causes more acne or damage. Wash your hands first then wash your face with your hands gently.
Avatar n tn It seemed to have subsided towards the end of last year so I went through with laser surgery for skin resurfacing. Now five months later, I am breaking out again. I am ready for a last resort, accutuane, but am very apprehensive of any side effects which I fear could be irreversible. How bad is this "hair loss," that I am reading about? Does it pose threat to the internal organs? etc.
Avatar m tn hi how can i remove my acne scare with any cosmetic surgery it is possible and safe and one thing more how much is going to be cost me
Avatar f tn Hi, laser surgery can be expensive so consider your other options first. Your doctor can prescribe a topical gel such as Differin (adapalene) or Duac (benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin) to clear your skin. Acne is caused by a sensitivity to the effects of androgens (hormones) in your body. Female acne patients will benefit from taking the combined oral contraceptive pill as the oestrogen it contains blocks the action of androgens on your skin. Eloise.
Avatar n tn Hi, Acne scars or pock marks is a very common effect of acne. The earlier the treatment appropriate for the severity of the scars, the better chances that scar formation will be mild. Delaying acne therapy by more than 3 years likely increases the risk of more significant acne scarring. Laser Treatments do not cure or remove all acne marks and blemishing but it improves the skin condition.
