Anti-acne regimen

Anti-acne regimen

Acne treatment starts with a dermatologic consultation. Each patient is assessed according to:

  • skin type and color
  • severity, duration, and stage of acne
  • previous and present medications
  • lifestyle
  • other medical problems
  • other pertinent history

The doctor then plans for the course of treatment which may include:

  • topical medications and skin care products
  • oral medications
  • procedures like acne surgery, lasers, etc.

Acne management almost always entails a series of treatments and necessitates a sense of commitment from the patient to comply with the proper application and intake of the medicines prescribed and to return on scheduled follow-ups.
