Acne Treatment Information


In general, good candidates for acne treatment:

  • Have blemishes on their face or body

  • Have skin that doesn't respond to topical over-the-counter regimens

  • Are healthy and do not have medical conditions that impair healing

  • Are nonsmokers

  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations


Consult your doctor for topical medication, oral meds, photodynamic therapy, or other skin-care options.


Progress will vary from patient to patient. See your doctor for specific skin-care regimen instruction. Avoid sun exposure without coverage. Some facial treatments may even be reduced in their effectiveness if exposed to sunlight.

Although infrequent, the risks and complications of acne treatment include:

  • Scarring

  • Rash or skin irritations
