Acne is a skin condition that can impact any patient at any age. In fact, many of the adult patients we see in our practice are seeking a solution to chronic acne. Acne can be anywhere from mild to severe, and there are several different types of acne that can develop on the skin. With a proper diagnosis, patients can work with Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics to find a solution.
Acne management solutions
There are many ways in which a patient may attempt to control their acne condition. In some cases, patients can utilize over-the-counter products and changes in their skin care regimen to address the problem. Others with more severe or resistant acne problems will want to work with a dermatological team of professionals such as those available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics. Below are a few options for patients to consider when it comes to treating acne:
- Skincare products. Improvement of acne starts at home with the daily use of cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and cream. Patients can ask Dr. Jack Bertolino about the products they currently use and determine if a change is needed to see improvement.
- Medications. Over-the-counter products that contain ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid may be beneficial for some of our patients. However, some patients may require stronger solutions that are prescription only.
- Light therapies. Once patients are on appropriate medications and have tailored their daily skin care routine to their needs, a discussion of light therapies may occur. Light therapies, such as intense pulsed light or blue light therapies, can be an effective way of treating the bacteria that may be present on the skin and reducing the redness and inflammation common with moderate to severe acne. Light therapies are noninvasive but have been shown to provide dramatic results for those seeking improvement for their conditions.
