Acne is the most frequent skin condition in the United States. It is characterized by pimples that appear on the face, back and chest. Every year, about 80% of adolescents have some form of acne and about 5% of adults experience acne.
Treating acne is a relatively slow process; there is no overnight remedy. Some treatments include:
Benzoyl Peroxide — Used in mild cases of acne, benzoyl peroxide reduces the blockages in the hair follicles.
Oral and Topical Antibiotics — Used to treat any infection in the pores.
Hormonal Treatments — Can be used for adult women with hormonally induced acne.
Tretinoin — A derivative of Vitamin A, tretinoin helps unplug the blocked-up material in whiteheads/blackheads. It has become a mainstay in the treatment of acne.
Extraction — Removal of whiteheads and blackheads using a small metal instrument that is centered on the comedones and pushed down, extruding the blocked pore.
