Acne management

Acne management

OVERVIEW
PRICING
Acne can be a persistent problem for many people, especially teens, though for some, the suffering can continue into adult life. A careful acne management regime can produce great results, but requires some forethought and planning.

Acne treatment should be directed toward the known pathogenic factors involved. These include excess sebum, follicular hyperproliferation, Propionibacteriumacnes infection, and inflammation. The severity of the acne will also help in determining the most appropriate treatment.

Best results are generally achieved through a combination of antimicrobial and topical retinoid therapy. The superior effect of this combination treatment is due to complementary mechanisms of action targeting the different pathogenic factors that may be present.

Retinoids reduce abnormal desquamation of skin and cells, are comedolytic, and have some anti-inflammatory effects. Whereas antimicrobial treatments have some keratolytic effects, and antibiotics are anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial as well.
