Chemical Peels

Topical creams and oral medications can be effective treatments for acne outbreaks, but they can be expensive, can dry and irritate sensitive skin and have a number of side effects.

Treating acne with facial chemical peels can deliver better aesthetic results, especially on inflammatory acne, without the side effects associated with topical and oral acne medications.

Acne Medication

If your acne condition is mild, you may first try one of the many over-the-counter medications that are available. These cleansers, creams and gels may be all you need. The active ingredients, usually salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, have anti- inflammatory, drying and peeling qualities and may be effective at killing bacteria.

Acne Medication

These treatments may be effective at controlling more severe cases. These medications may contain antibiotics, retinoids or hormonal agents. Antibiotic acne treatments are not a long-term solution since prolonged use may create antibiotic resistance.
