Not all acne treatments work for everyone. There are a few reasons for this. First, there are different kinds of acne that occur because of different reasons. Then there is the fact that we all have different kinds of skin; oily, dry and so on. Then there is acne that is the result of unbalanced hormones. Acne treatments should be customized to the individual, and that’s exactly what we do at Santé Medical Aesthetics.
Mild, Moderate or Severe
If the acne that you have is of the mild variety, over-the-counter acne medications may help to significantly reduce the appearance of acne. Moderate acne takes more than just over-the-counter skin medications. This is the time when it’s probably best to see a professional if you want your acne problem to be brought under control. Our professionals can evaluate your condition and give sound and clear advice on how to manage your acne and eventually get rid of it completely.
Now, for the severe acne scenario. Depending on the type of acne that has become severe, our professionals might recommend a number of different treatments that aim to treat the underlying causes of the condition. It all depends on the unique situation.
Sometimes, the problem can stem from a patient using the wrong over-the-counter products in the first place. This can often make the acne much worse. Many over-the-counter products contain ingredients that might fight acne, but fail to deliver when it comes to mixing the right formula with the right amount of certain ingredients. That’s why it’s so important to customize acne treatments.
Treatments Customized for You
Acne treatments have come a long way since the 1980s. Back then, teenagers were told not to eat fried foods and candy and were given harsh solutions to use on their faces. That was about it. Nowadays, medical professionals and skin care experts understand the different kinds of acne people can get, and the kind of skin they have decides how a patient is treated for acne. Nowadays, adults suffer from different forms of acne as well, not just teenagers.
Acne can take a toll on your self-esteem. This is true if you happen to be a teenager or an adult. It can lead to anxiety disorders and even depression. This is why it’s so important to see a qualified professional if you are struggling with keeping acne under control, especially if over-the-counter medications have not helped.
