Treating redness associated with acne
Thank you for your question Ebjk7. Acne is a common condition and treatment can be frustrating at times. Accutane (isotretinoin) is an oral medication used to treat acne resistant to other treatment modalities. Doxycycline is another oral medication which works well for redness associated with acne. Laser treatments such as IPL with blue light settings and laser genesis (Nd:YAG) treatments can also help with redness. For my patients I do not begin such treatments until six to twelve months after completion of a course of Accutane. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
