What should I expect with acne treatment?
The steps of your treatment will depend on the treatment plan Dr. Ostad creates for you. The process starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your skin to determine the type and severity of the acne, followed by a custom-developed plan for treatment. Therapies may include the following:
- Prescription medication combined with a specialized skincare routine may be sufficient to clear mild acne
- For moderate to severe acne, Accutane or oral antibiotics may be prescribed
- A custom laser treatment can kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce oil production, and stimulate new collagen growth; for best results, you may need a series of laser treatments, in combination with other therapies
