Acne Treatment


Acne is one of the most common skin problems in both men and women all across the globe. It is important that you undertake an effective treatment for acne because it can lead to scarring if not treated right.

Acne is caused by clogging of skin pores. This generally happens when the skin is producing too much of sebum which is the natural oil. The excess oil produced by the sebaceous glands, along with daily dirt and grime, gets trapped in open pores. This is why it is always advised to keep your face adequately moisturized.

Treatment Options

There are numerous treatment options for Acne and Acne Scars Treatment. Most commonly used treatments include topical treatments, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing.

Tropical Treatment
Topical treatment is prescribed by dermatologists to fight mild to moderate acne. Creams, ointments or gels are applied directly to the affected area which is able to kill the bacteria and unclog the pores. These topical products are also prescribed in combination with antibiotic oral medications as an effective treatment to get rid of acne.

Chemical Peel
These acidic solutions are applied to the skin and left in place for some time before they are wiped off. The treatment is quite effective and the strength of the peel is determined as per the individual’s requirement. This acne treatment in Dubai can also be used to treat mild to moderate acne scarring.

Laser Skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin from acne scarring. It is sometimes referred to as “laser peeling” since it removes old skin cells in order to reveal newer, more youthful cells.

Before & After


You are a candidate for Acne Treatment if you have:

  1. You are at least 18 years old or above.
  2. You are not pregnant.
  3. You are nit breastfeeding.
  4. You want a permanent fix for your acne.
  5. You want to eliminate acne marks.

Many people assume that dirty skin or poor skin hygiene leads to acne but this isn’t the case. Washing the face is good for removing dirt and debris but it does not clear acne.

What often happens is that people excessively wash their faces in the belief that it will cure their acne only to find that it has worsened it! Too much washing removes essential oils from the skin which dries it out, leaving it to crack or peel.

Washing the face twice daily will help but in conjunction with an acne treatment.

No, but it can worsen it. Stress affects the body in a variety of ways which includes hormone levels. It can cause hormonal changes which can lead to an overproduction of sebum which then triggers acne.

However, raised stress levels are more likely to aggravate acne. This is discussed further in our acne complications section.

The problem with doing this is that it can push the inflamed spot deeper into the skin which causes damage to healthy skin tissue. This risks spreading the infection as well as the acne outbreak and can result in scarring. It is tempting to do this but resist the temptation.
