Skin treatment for acne

Common Questions and Answers about Skin treatment for acne


Avatar n tn I am not on birth control pills and am wondering whether I should begin taking them as a treatment for the cysts (both ovarian and the severe acne on my face). Also, what are some homeopathic treatments for severe acne (if there are any...which I hope there are)? I have quit my job and become incredibly agoraphobic due to my high embarrassment. Please help me in any way possible.
Avatar n tn i use the Murad clear skin system and it works really well for me. They have the treatment gels and skin lotions that really help get rid of the acne and don't dry out the skin. I also take their pure skin supplements that work really well.
Avatar n tn sounds like an adult version of acne known as acne rosacea- google it or check google images - it is completely different to the teenage form of acne vulgaris
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. I have also read that Accutane does little for Acne Inversa. Is there truth to this? 2) I have read that Carbon Dioxide Laser Ablation may be just as effective as skin grafts, however, it was an emerging treatment.
Avatar n tn I think I have tried every treatment under the sun regarding my acne, i have visited a determatologist, tried cliniuque vera moore, st.ives and other over the counter acne treatments, nothing seems to be working, i would noe like to try laser treatment, but the cost, procedure and how to choose the best preocedure is a concern to me, what do you suggest at this point.
Avatar f tn Glad you found your treatment for acne like I found my acne treatment as well as scar treatment in InviCible Scars. It helped control the oiliness of my skin and prevented acne while getting rid of old acne scars.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the advice guys. Wat abt makeup?

Avatar f tn what is the best acne treatment? i have oily skin and my face doesnt seem to heal too good. ive currently tried exposed and it helped at first i thought but now its broke out. and plus i have bad acne scars :( what is a good acne treatment that i can buy in a store? im tired of ordering stuff online.
Avatar n tn Make sure they do a patch test on a small area of skin to test for a reaction before completing the full treatment. Do not use any astringent products on the skin to be treated for 48 hours before the procedure. Several sessions may be indicated and the clinic may recommend you purchase some of their products to achieve maximum results. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I'm seventeen and have been seeing a dermatologist since I was fifteen. I'm currently on Duac topical gel + Differin .3. These worked for a little while but they just didn't stop my cystic acne which can just be a monster, so my dermo prescribed an oral antibiotic. I know some people will go on and on about the harmful effects of antibiotics for long term use, but because my cystic acne was extremely painful and scaring, I felt that I no other option.
903476 tn?1242237037 I can honestly say I've never used a tomato on my skin for my acne but then again my skin is more on the dry side then oily. Which is best for normal to dry skin. I do use egg whites in my hair a lot to add moisture after I colour it, had never thought of using it on my face.
Avatar m tn If your interested in seeing how you can use Glycolic Acid (and the other 2 acne treatments together) check out back acne treatment. They have a free guide that is for any form of acne and works pretty well for what your looking for. Goodluck and have a great day! Michael.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Any acne medication takes time to act and it is important to stick to particular regime for significant improvement. You should wash your face with a nonirritating, pH-balanced cleanser to decrease inflammation. Avoid scrubbing the face. Do not pop or pick at pimples. A correct nutritional balance and skin care will be helpful. Drink plenty of water every day. Take 7-8 hours of sleep daily. Have a balanced diet rich in vitamin A, zinc and rich in multivitamins.
Avatar n tn Now I have persistant and large acne on my cheeks and jawline, including cystic acne. The acne is ever present and not just once a month. My current dermo (not the one who proscribed Accutane) tells me that it's hormonal (I believe this) and that I will just have to deal with it for the rest of my life (I don't want to accept this). She does Cortosone injections on occasion for the cysts because I cannot, for the life of me, leave my face alone.
Avatar m tn my doctor has suggested doing PDT for my back which is terribly affected by Acne .the date has been set for the treatment but not for my face ,doctor has given me Retin-A for my face and is telling me it does the same thing as accutane. i have not been able to use the retin-A effectively because I think my rosacea is getting worse or triggered with it . I would appreciate if you could study my case and comment on that .
Avatar n tn They gave me super super oily skin. I started using retinoids when I was 14 years old and my skin was normal except for acne, and now I"m 19 and I stopped using them. My skin was oily all through my time using the retinoids but now that I'm off them my skin is still freakin oily. I've been off the retinoids for almost three months now. It doesn't make any sense to me at all. Their is not a dern thing the dermatologist can do about super oily skin.

Avatar f tn Acne is caused by raised levels of androgens (common during menstruation, puberty etc). Androgens stimulate the sebaceous glands which leads to oily skin and acne. Providing your skin is not overly sensitive you could use a cleanser containing Salicylic acid as well as the leave-on treatment (Murad make both). Female acne patients often benefit from taking the combined oral contraceptive pill since the oestrogen it contains blocks the actions of androgens on the skin.
Avatar m tn Hello All. I was wondering if anyone has ever had any acne treatment they thought was effective other than Accutane? I'm in my 40s and my acne is worse then ever (it is not disfiguring, but enough to be clearly noticeable and impact my life). I have tried benzoyl peroxide, salicyclic acid, blue light, Differin cream, birth control pills, Retin A and prescription antibiotic washes.
2135371 tn?1335882985 However, I managed to heal the part of pimples but the scars and marks are still an annoying problem for me. Is it the right time to have an acne treatment like laser scar removal? Anything I 've tried since now had no result on my scars and marks. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Hi, Acne scarring results when the visible remnants of acne are left on the skin after the acne itself subsides. The best way of treating acne scars is to start early. There are some treatments available for this condition. By using topical treatments prescribed by your dermatologists, such as biological acne scarring treatment where in the old, damaged tissues and scars are replaced by new cells.
