Acne is an extremely common, embarrassing problem affecting teenagers and young adults all over the world. Rarely disease persists into or starts in adulthood. Left untreated acne can cause severe problems with scarring and pigmentation. With effective treatment however, acne can certainly be cured (though well controlled is probably a better word as one cannot guarantee the occasional spot). A number of treatment options exist including topical and systemic antibiotics and Isotretinoin (accutane or Roaccutane) . Skin peeling (chemical or microdermabrasion) can open the pores and remove the dead skin and pigmentation. However, treatment needs to be individualised and tailored to ones needs. This is best done by a qualified Dermatologist. You will need to upload your photos and register a case sheet online for me to decide which treatments would work best for you.
