Find a reliable way of treating Acne to reduce breakouts and scarring
At SkinProvement Dermatology New York, Dr. Stephen Comite and his team see patients in the Manhattan and New York, New York areas who are struggling with acne or acne scars. Often these patients find themselves calling a dermatologist when they cannot control it on their own with over-the-counter solutions. At our practice, we evaluate the skin and can make recommendations regarding the best treatment options for our patients. In many instances, certain skin treatments and medications only available with a dermatologist are the best solutions for active acne breakouts or scarring.
What are some of the solutions for treating acne and acne scars?
There are a number of ways in which a patient can address acne and acne scars, and some of the following treatments may be recommended to them by our team at SkinProvement Dermatology New York:
- Prescription topical medications. These include creams or gels applied directly to the affected areas to help clear breakouts and reduce inflammation. These are stronger than medications available over the counter, though they may include similar ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
- Oral medications. Antibiotics or hormonal medications may be prescribed to address acne from within the body and prevent future breakouts. Sometimes, treating the issue from the inside-out is the most effective way to keep acne under control. This treatment may also be combined with topical medications for a more dramatic improvement.
- Chemical peels. These treatments use a solution that is applied to the skin, causing the top layer of cells to peel off, revealing smoother and clearer skin underneath. It simulates skin cell turnover and can promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation for improved skin.
Which treatment is right for me?
Patients must remember that everyone’s skin is unique, and what works well for one person may not work for another.
This is why working with a skilled and experienced dermatologist is always a great way to clear the skin and address acne scarring. Dr. Stephen Comite works with individuals, and in some cases, trial and error may be needed for a while to see what works. Ultimately, when patients see clearer skin, it can dramatically boost their self-confidence along with their appearance, allowing them to avoid using cosmetics to disguise their condition.
