Acne is a condition that affects millions of Americans, and the condition can be mild or severe. It impacts patients of all ages, including adults, and in most cases, can be managed with the help of a professional.

How is acne treated?
The method of treatment for acne depends greatly on the type and severity of the acne present. Additionally, some patients do not respond as well to certain therapies as others do. This can cause patients great frustration, especially when trying to control their condition with over-the-counter acne products. Instead, patients should visit with a professional and have their acne evaluated, and then work with the doctor to develop a treatment plan. It is essential that patients understand that the most effective acne treatment may require some time to pinpoint, and to be patient during the process.
Some of the more common methodologies used for the treatment of acne include:
- Oral medications
- Topical medications
- Prescription creams
- A proper skincare regimen
