Acne Treatment

Imagine the day when you have to cancel an important appointment or much awaited social gathering or party, simply because you have developed a lot of pimples, blackheads, etc on your face!!

It is because of this fear that people in USA alone spend over $ 1.4billion every year over acne treatment. Though most of them earn un-satisfactory results, a few of them have to even suffer with the side effects, even worsening their conditions.

Acne can be treated by either taking prescribed medicines or by trying out the non-prescription acne products like acne cleansers, astringents, moisturizers and pimple creams available at the local drug store.

Whatever way you choose to cure your acne, the basic methodology that these medicines and non-prescription products employ remains identical. They either help you to unplug your blackheads and whiteheads or let your affected skin shed so that you get new fresh look, or else they kill the bacteria that infect the pores.

The acne treatment usually takes six to eight weeks to work, while in severe cases it may require months to get treated.

If you choose to go to dermatologist, he will suggest you to take antibiotics, pills or vitamins or all, depending on what he considers as the most apt treatment for you.

Though the tropical antibiotics like Cleocin T and Azelex help in killing the bacteria, they may result in dry, red skin with an increase in sun sensitivity, as compared to oral antibiotics that even more serious side effects like nausea and dizziness in few cases.

Taking in Vitamin A is yet another method of treating acne. The derivatives like Retin-A, Differin and Tarzorac prevent the skin cells from clumping together and shedding, but may cause dryness, redness and irritation too.

It is because of these side effects the doctors suggest the use of latest method, which cleans up acne by employing light of wavelength 405 to 420 nm. The complete treatment needs 8 sittings of 15 minutes each, distributed over a time span of 4 weeks. It is found to give quick and impressive results when used to treat mild and moderate inflammation acne.
