Finding the Right Treatment for Your Acne Condition
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
At Carr Dermatology, patients in and around the Sugar Land, TX community struggling with conditions such as acne may be ready to start working with an experienced provider for a solution. Acne is a condition that can be embarrassing, and for some patients, it can be difficult to control. Acne can impact patients at any age and can range from mild to severe. Addressing acne with a dermatological professional is the best start to treatment.
Treatment options for acne
Many patients want to known the single-most effective treatment available to them for their acne. However, there are many options because there is no “one size fits all” solution to acne. Additionally, the type of acne and the severity of the acne can cause one treatment option to fail over another. In some cases, patients may need to go through a process of trail and error to find the treatment that works for their specific needs.
Dr. Pamela Carr of Sugar Land, TX offers various treatments methodologies for acne, which may include:
- Topical medications
- Prescription oral medications
- Light therapies
- Chemical peels
- New skin care routine
Picking an appropriate treatment for acne
When patients first visit Dr. Pamela Carr, they will have a physical evaluation completed during which the type of acne and the severity is diagnosed by a professional. Then, patients take this time to advise their doctor in regards to the treatment options they may have already tried. This can include anything from contraceptives to over-the-counter acne creams. Then, the doctor can make a recommendation for treatment. Patients should follow the doctor’s orders closely to see if the solution selected is effective at reducing acne.
What about acne scarring?
After active acne has been treated, many patients are left behind with signs of their acne. These acne scars may vary in size, shape, and severity. With certain treatments such as dermal fillers, many patients can smooth their skin after acne and enjoy skin with better overall texture and tone.
