Comedones

Thank you for your question. It's difficult to assess your skin through photographs, but it looks as if you have a type of acne called comedones or whiteheads and blackheads. The best treatment for comedones is aimed at gently exfoliating the skin to bring them to the surface for removal. Treatments include topical retinoids such as Retin-A, Differin, tretinoin, adapalene, chemicals peels, extractions, or Hydrafacials. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist regarding your skin and to discuss treatment options that best suits your skin. Take care and good luck.
