Men and women who think of acne might immediately think of hormonal teenagers with red and inflamed skin. However, acne is a condition that can impact anyone at any age. In fact, many adults continue to deal with acne well into their late 30’s and 40’s. Fortunately, with the help of a trained and experienced professional, many patients can address this condition and clear their skin with a range of products and services such as those available at Renu Med Lounge.
What methods of treatment are available for acne patients?
During the first appointment with the team at Renu Med Lounge, patients can consult with a professional about their desires to treat their acne. The type of acne and severity of acne will often determine the treatment method chosen by our providers. For some patients, it may take time to find the solution that works best, as sometimes these treatments can take a few weeks to work their magic.
Below are just a few of the more common methods of treatment for acne:
- Topical creams and medications – over-the-counter acne products are commonly used by patients with mild to moderate acne. These medications and creams are applied to the face and can control inflammation and redness. Many of these include ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide which can provide noticeable results.
- Oral medications – a doctor may sometimes prescribe oral medications to help control the infection from the inside out. These medications may be strong or mild depending on the type of acne present.
- Laser therapies – lasers are used in many areas of medicine and continue to be a state-of-the-art treatment that can address many skin and body concerns. Laser therapies are often recommended to kill bacteria on the skin and stop infections.
- Chemical peels – Renu Med Lounge offers a range of chemical peels that can be used in not only treating acne, but addressing other skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and acne scarring left behind from active acne in the past.
