Acne can affect individuals of all ages, but it is more common in the adolescent years. Acne affects
the appearance of the person. Although it is not related to any medical condition, acne can be distressing.
It may result is lower-self esteem and anxiety about social acceptance. There is no known cure for acne,
however, the condition can be controlled.
Topical acne treatment includes creams, gels, or lotions that are applied directly to the skin. Several
over-the- counter and prescription medications are available for the purpose including Benzoyl peroxide and
Salicylic acid. Common side effects can include dryness, peeling, tingling, or stinging. Prescription creams like
retinoid that works by preventing clogging of pores or Azelaic acid that kills bacteria are also effective
in treating the condition. Topical antibiotics, topical sulfa antibiotics, and oral antibiotics are also
prescribed for the treatment of acne. The patient may have to try several medications before finding the
one that suits his or her requirement. Most medications take 4-6 weeks to take effect.
Laser therapy has proved to be an effective solution for treatment and control of eruptions. Different types
of lasers use low intensity, blue light that kills acne-causing bacteria. Laser light and heat energy destroy
bacteria and shrinks sebaceous glands to reduce oil production. Diode lasers can destroy sebaceous glands
in the thick middle layer of skin. Treatment by diodes can be painful and skin may become red or swollen
following the treatment.
