What Acne Treatments Are Available?
The treatment of acne depends on the type of acne that a patient has. Since there are many different acne types, thorough assessment by Dr. Sapijaszko would be needed before specific therapy is recommended. It is important to have acne examined by a dermatologist as poor diagnosis and lack of experience can lead to inadequate therapy and resulting scarring.
Generally speaking, acne can be treated by one or the combination of the following modalities: washes, creams and lotions, chemical peels, oral medications (antibiotics, accutane or birth control pills) and light based technologies (laser, IPL, Blu-U or Aktillite).
Edmonton treatment solutions
One of the most difficult issues that acne sufferers deal with is actually an after-effect of the disease: scarring. Acne scarring can cause emotional stress even after your acne has been successfully treated and begun to heal. Now - treatments for acne scarring are available in Edmonton.
Some individuals’ skin is more naturally prone to scarring than others, depending on age, skin color, and other factors. The depth, color, and severity of acne scars can vary from person to person depending on the degree and type of acne that has been experienced. Often, darker-skinned individuals have dark brown or purple scars, while lighter-skinned people typically have red or brown scarring.
