Acne Maintenance

Maintaining acne control can be difficult, at times. There are numerous options available, such as over-the-counter and doctor prescribed lotions and antibiotics that target the different causes of acne. However, even with the vast variety of acne treatments, persistent outbreaks may still be challenging to treat.

The majority of non-prescription treatments just focus on the skin’s surface and does not focus on the actual problem.

Antibiotics could also produce complications by ruining the normal “healthy” bacteria in the body, trigger side effects such as photo-sensitivity as well as diarrhea in addition, lead to antibiotic resistance.

  • Much more advanced acne treatments such as laser acne therapy may be a more efficient choice to address persistent breakouts.

  • Laser acne therapy penetrates deeper layers of the skin without damaging the skin’s surface area and decreases the output of oil from the skin glands as well as focusing on Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), the bacteria that triggers acne inflammation.
