Acne Treatment Options for Effective Results

At Zen Med Spa Aesthetics and Regenerative Medicine of Manhattan, New York and Jamaica, Queens, New York, Dr. Ahmadur Rahman and his team work together with patients to provide an effective and definitive acne diagnosis and discuss pimple treatment. While some individuals can tackle their acne with over-the-counter products containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, others may need the assistance of a dermatologist to achieve clearer, healthier skin.

What is acne?

Acne is a common yet uncomfortable and embarrassing skin condition that occurs when dead skin cells and oil clog the pores. The resulting inflammation can lead to pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads that can impact one’s self-esteem. Acne is most commonly seen on the face but can also affect the chest, back, and shoulders.

What causes acne?

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of acne. Hormonal changes, including those which commonly occur during puberty or pregnancy, can trigger excess oil production and clogged pores. Certain medications, including steroids or birth control pills, can also cause acne breakouts. Diet and stress levels can also affect the severity of acne flare-ups.

How is acne treated?

Acne removal may be quite a task. Different acne responds to different treatments, and no two patients are the same. In some cases, finding the correct acne treatment may require trial and error with several products and services available at our practice. Below are a few of the methods Dr. Rahman may use to achieve results:

  • Prescription products, including topical and oral medications
  • Laser skin rejuvenation treatments
  • IPL/phototherapy treatments
  • Light therapy options, including blue light, to target bacteria on the skin’s surface
  • Chemicals peels, which provide deep exfoliation
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Microneedling
  • Dermaplaning
  • Changes in one’s skin care routine, including professional-grade toners, cleansers, and moisturizers
