How is Acne Treated?
Acne is a common problem that affects most people at one time or another during their lifetime. Myths about causes for acne range from eating chocolate to not washing one’s face enough. Acne is actually caused by several factors, including: excess oil production, bacterial overgrowth, too much inflammation, and poor epidermal skin shedding which causes pores to close. The unwanted result is pimples and inflammation.
Dr. Lafkas will customize a treatment plan based on his assessment of what the primary cause of your acne is (e.g. bacteria and poor skin shedding). He may use oral or topical antibiotics and a series of chemical peels to get the acne under control and then transition you to topical antibiotics and retinoids after several months. He may even recommend simple over the counter treatments if your acne is mild. Severe acne may require treatment with Photodynamic Therapy(PDT) with Levulan in order to prevent future scarring if the initial treatments with antibiotics and chemical peels aren't working. Visit our Levulan Photodynamic Therapy page for more information.
