Pimples- Acne can be treated with peels, vitamin A creams- retinol, as well as good skin care including correct use of cleansers, exfoliants and in females make up. I do not prescribe oral medication, however use low level laser emission devices such as blue light- omnilux as well as a variety of peels to address acne. Diet plays an important role in the management of acne, as do supplements such as zinc. Dietary management includes decreasing dairy intake as well as sugar intake. If all else fails, a general dermatologist can prescribe medication to address hormonal issues, or tablets that decrease oil production.
