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.
