What is Acne Treatment?
The reason behind acne is that the sebaceous glands produce too much oil to the point that it clogs the openings of pores. When some become too clogged, they get slightly swollen and inflamed.

Are Acne Treatments for Me?

How Do Acne Treatment Procedures Work?
There are several types of acne treatments available. Depending on the selected method, acne treatments are often performed at the physician’s office or at home. The treatments include:
- Laser Therapy. Lasers reduce the size of the glands that secrete oil as well as inflamed blood vessels to enhance the quality of the skin.
- Anti-Inflammation Therapy. This therapy benefits inflamed acne and cystic acne.
- Skin Care Treatments. Professional skin care and treatments diminish and control future outbreaks of acne. Stronger treatments like chemical peels may be used to get rid of dead skin without burning healthy tissue or further irritating the acne. Skin care treatments prescribed by a physician are used with a specific regimen to help maintain healthy skin and control future outbreaks.
Antibiotics are often prescribed in combination with these therapies.
Recovery from Acne Treatment
Most acne treatments have no downtime, although they may come with a little redness that disappears within a few days. For deeper treatments, such as laser therapy, it may be necessary to let the skin rest for a day or two to recover from the treatments. That is why it is common to have laser treatments at the end of the week to let skin rest over the weekend. With many acne treatments, it is very important to avoid direct sunlight as it can irritate or damage the skin.
