Dermatologist Recommended Acne Products

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the skin, caused by changes in the pilosebaceous units (skin the hair follicle and sebaceous gland). The typical acne lesions are: comedones, papules, pustules, nodules and inflammatory cysts. After resolution of acne lesions, prominent (but temporary) hyperpigmentation is common and permanent scarring may also occur. Several factors occur in combination to cause acne, including hormonal changes, plugged pores and secondary bacterial overgrowth in the hair follicle and sebaceous gland units. Further research is necessary to establish whether reducing the consumption of high-glycemic foods (such as soft drinks, sweets, white bread) can significantly alleviate acne. There is no way to predict how long it will take for acne to disappear entirely. Effective acne treatment methods include (adult acne products are often used in combination for best results): Exfoliation therapies (creams, toners, masks), Topical antibacterial medications, Oral antibiotics, Hormonal therapies (oral contraceptive pills, spironolactone, cyproterone acetate), Topical retinoids (tretinoin, adapalene, tazarotene), Isotretinoin (an oral retinoid medication), Blue light phototherapy (Blu-U) with or without aminolevulinic acid (Levulan), Laser therapy.
