What are my options for acne this severe? I could really use some help (Photos)

Had it for years. It used to be all over my face but now it's jawline/neck area. Sometimes it has an odor? Painful and under the skin mixed with black heads.

Most often a combination approach is needed to deal with acne breakouts. I suggest a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers, peels, and skin care to determine the best regimen for you.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Immediate improvement can be expected with IPL treatments; long term improvement can be maintained with appropriate medications. Please see link below.
