Acne is a condition that doesn’t just affect teenagers—it can affect patients of all ages, including adults. Acne can be extremely embarrassing for many, but with the proper evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, many men, women, and children can see remarkable results. At Carr Dermatology, Dr. Pamela Carr of Sugar Land, TX is pleased to provide patients with a variety of treatment options to find the one right for their needs.
Getting a proper diagnosis
Before learning about effective treatment options, it is important that patients get a proper diagnosis from a skincare professional. Some conditions may look like acne but may not actually BE acne. This is where a full evaluation at Carr Dermatology is recommended. Dr. Pamela Carr can evaluate the skin and determine the type of acne and the severity of the acne to make a recommendation for treatment. Patients who visit with Dr. Pamela Carr should also discuss with her the treatments they have tried already, ensuring she makes a reliable recommendation.
What treatments are available?
There are many ways in which patients can treat acne, and in some cases, multiple methods can be used together for more effective results in a shorter period of time. Some of the treatment options that may be recommended to patients at Carr Dermatology may include:
- Over-the-counter cleansers and products
- Prescription strength cleansers and products
- Retin-A creams and topicals
- Special skincare products to use daily
- Oral antibiotics to control infection from the inside out
- Light chemical peels
For some patients, over-the-counter products and a new skincare regimen can make all the difference, while other patients may require more aggressive approaches to treatment to get the results they need. Not everyone responds the same way to the same treatments, so a trial-and-error approach may be done to see which treatments the skin responds the best to.
