Pimple and cystic acne should be treated early and effectively to minimise acne scarring. 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. If all else fails, a general dermatologist can prescribe medication to address hormonal issues, or tablets that decrease oil production. Once again I can not stress the need to treat acne early to minimise acne scars.
