Acne Treatments

Acne is a prevalent skin condition that affects people of all ages, sizes, and lifestyles. It is caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormones, and hygiene. Although topical acne treatments such as oral antibiotics, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and glycolic acid may be seen as a surefire solution for treating adult acne, you must seek acne dermatology services.

It is recommended to get individualized therapy from a dermatologist that addresses your acne condition while also improving your skin health, especially if you have acne-prone skin. This is a more effective solution for severe acne than self-medication or over-the-counter treatments!

Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery specialists provide customized treatments to reduce acne and keep your skin clear and healthy-looking. If you're having trouble with acne, contact Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery or make an appointment online right now for expert dermatological treatment.

Types of Acne

The two most common types of acne are inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Inflammatory acne is a type of skin condition that causes pimples to form. These deep, painful and sometimes sore breakouts can be associated with inflammation in the skin which produces pus-filled boils on your face or other parts of your body such as the chest area. Cystic acne is an example of inflammatory acne.

Another type of acne, noninflammatory acne, is usually close to your skin's surface and doesn't cause swelling or pain. The most common form is comedonal acne such as whiteheads and blackheads.

Common Signs of Acne

Common signs of inflammatory acne often include:

Pustules: This is an inflammatory swelling on the surface of your skin that contains pus.

Nodules: These are large, hard pimples that lie beneath your skin.

Cysts: These are soft, fluid-filled pimples under your skin.

Common signs of non-inflammatory acne often include:

Closed Comedones (whiteheads): These are tiny flesh-colored growths or bumps.

Open Comedones (Blackheads): These are small, dark-colored pimples that may appear as slightly elevated bumps.

Best Acne Treatments

Here at Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery, we employ different types of solutions to treat acne, including laser therapy, and oral and topical medications. Our laser therapy can help in improving the appearance of acne scars, as well as reduce the redness and inflammation associated with active acne breakouts. The best type of laser therapy for your individual needs will be determined during your consultation with one of our expert dermatologists. Topical and oral medications can help reduce inflammation and acne when taken over a period of time

Here are some of the acne treatments our dermatologists may recommend to treat your acne:


Our BBL technique is a cutting-edge acne therapy that uses the power of light to safely and effectively remove acne without the use of creams or topical medicines.

As the most effective Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device in the world, BBL is a state-of-the-art treatment that targets and polishes your skin's surface while also softening it. It gives your skin a healthy glow while also stimulating and regenerating your skin cells. This is the perfect treatment regimen for pesky cystic acne!


The Halo Laser is an FDA-approved laser that can help you get rid of acne scarring. The efficacy of the Halo Laser is in its unique combination of ablative and non-ablative lasers, which simultaneously scrapes the top skin layer and produces tiny micro-wounds within the dermal tissue.

These tiny wounds induce the body to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in a greater rate of cell turnover. In the long term, this therapy results in a greater production of collagen, exfoliation of dead skin cells, and faster cellular turnover, which helps to lessen acne scars significantly.

There's a lot of evidence that this treatment improves the structure and function of the skin, resulting in fewer acne scars over time. This is an effective acne treatment for acne cysts!

Topical Medication

A common type of treatment is topical medication including lotions, gels, and creams that you apply to your skin. You typically use it at breakfast time or before bedtime after washing away any makeup from the previous day!

Acne solutions frequently include a combination of active ingredients including salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. These chemicals decrease the amount of sebum your body produces and combat irritation. These effects aid in the treatment of existing acne as well as the prevention of new ones from developing.

In more severe cases, we offer stronger treatments that include acne gels and creams with tretinoin (a drug from vitamin A), which can be an effective treatment for moderate or severe acne conditions like this. Picking up on its power to kill bacteria is important because it will help keep your face free of breakouts!

Oral Medication

Another common acne treatment solution is oral medications. Depending on the grade of acne your skin is diagnosed with, our acne specialists will match you with the best acne solution to help clear your skin. The three sorts of systemic medications that are utilized to treat acne at Skincredible are antibiotics, oral contraceptives, and isotretinoin. Antibiotics, such as tetracycline are used to combat bacteria and inflammation from the inside out.

We also provide FDA-approved oral contraceptives which can assist in regulating hormone levels to aid in the treatment of acne for certain women who are not pregnant. Finally, we provide isotretinoin, which reduces oil gland size to minimize the amount of oil produced, completely eradicating severe acne conditions such as cystic acne.

Common oral medications include Accutane, Doxycycline, Tetracycline, Minocycline, Isotretinoin, and more!
