What treatment options are available?
Treatments for acne vary from patient to patient, and can sometimes be trial and error. There is no “one size fits all” solution, though patients with acne may benefit from treatments such as:
- Topical prescription creams
- Oral medications
- Chemical peels
- Laser therapies
- Light therapies
When patients have developed acne scars, a common way of addressing them is with dermal fillers. These fill the deep scars and make them far less noticeable. Patients with acne scars that are rolling or bumpy may find resolution with chemical peels, laser therapies, and microneedling. Our doctor can help patients decide which is right for them.
