How to get rid of pimples and acne?
Thanks for your query. You should consider using topical adapelene at night on acne and consider regular chemical peels for a clearer skin. You should visit dermatologist and workout a treatment plan. Hope it helps.
All The Best
Peels, washes, medications and light
Oral medications are often used in combination with topical medications for Acne treatment. Antibiotics such as minocycline, tetracycline, and doxycycline are prescribed to control the growth of bacteria in the skin and in the sebaceous glands.For acne scarring, the fraxel dual is the gold standard for treatment. With the Fraxel,acne scars are improved over a series of 4 or 5 sessions. Vbeam laser treatment can significantly reduce both inflammatory acne and non-inflammatory acne. Following laser treatment, inflammatory acne lesions are reduced by an average of 85% and non-inflammatory acne lesions are reduced by approximately 70%. In addition, the laser will help improve acne scars and reduce redness in the skin. You should see a board certificated dermatologist as soon as possible to find a treatment protocol that works best for you.

Acne treatment... a Quick review.
There are various levels of treatment based on your condition.
The entrance point is to try to control the sources of acne.
It is as follows:
1. Bacteria: either benzoid peroxide or oral antibiotics will help with this issue.
2. Obstruction of the pores: retin A, scrubbing with granule soaps or gentle abrasive pads.
3. control of oil on skin: specific soaps and some acids (salicylic acid toners or soaps).
4. Diet: control for sources of grease in your skin (no chocolate, butter, etc.)
if you do not control it with this, hormonal components may be considered.
Accutane is the next level of treatment. It is more aggressive, and with some side effects.
If scaring is present.
Subcision, fractional laser, resurfacing lasers and more recently precision TX laser re-contouring are available.
Finally, make sure that you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in after weight loss surgery.
Wishing you the best in your journey
Intervention and Control of Acne
Multiple factors, such as age, hormonal state, medication use, diet, and personal hygiene influence the development of acne. Furthermore, there are several different forms of acne. The optimal treatment depends on your individual circumstances.
Acne - Combination of Treatments Needed
The best treatment for acne depends upon an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure, overall health and most importantly, the type of acne present (inflammatory papules, pustules, comedones, cysts, scars). In order to give you an accurate treatment plan, a consultation is required to properly assess your skin.
An important step for all skin types is sun protection including the use of daily sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses, all of which help prevent aging and sunburns.
When it comes to acne treatments, a combination of treatments are available including cosmeceuticals (medical grade skin care products specific for acne including ZO® Skin Health or ZO® Medical, Skinceuticals® or Glo-Minerals®), topical antibacterials, topical retinoids, oral antibacterials, oral anti-androgens, oral retinoids (isotretinoin), chemical peels (light, medium, and deep peels), lasers (Cutera Excel-V laser, Nd:YAG spectra laser), and light based devices (blue/red light, IPL/BBL, PDT with metvix or levulan).
These are advanced techniques so be sure to get an experienced dermatologist for recommendations and treatment options.
