What Are My Treatment Options for Acne?

We use many different treatments for acne. Your acne treatment plan may include some or all of the following:

  • Skin Care Training- The right techniques and skin care products can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. We’ll provide training on proper cleansing and skin hygiene and can recommend products for your skin and acne type.
  • Topical Medications and Masques- Topical treatments can reduce oil production, lessen inflammation, and kill bacteria within the pores.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide, Retin-A, and AHA- Benzoyl peroxide, Retin-A, and exfoliating formulas like alpha-hydroxy acid open clogged pores and kill acne-causing bacteria.
  • Antibiotics- Topical and oral antibiotics kill stubborn bacteria.
  • Chemical Peels- Chemical peels unclog pores, reduce oil production, and exfoliate dead skin cells.

Dr. Matarasso can provide treatment recommendations after carefully examining your skin. Different types of acne may require different treatment methods.
