Acne is a common problem in our society today. With everyone having differences in skin types from oily skin, sensitive skin, to even dry skin, it’s important to keep in mind that acne cannot be completely cured, but can be controlled. Thankfully, there are different kinds of treatments depending on your personal needs.

One treatment that might be recommended to you is a light therapy treatment. This treatment will kill the bacteria that causes the redness and swelling of acne by exposing your skin to the different types of light. Another form of treatment is through steroid injections. Sometimes acne can cause painful lumps under your skin where the steroid injection will be used. The injections will help fight off the acne and help clear up your skin. Chemical peels can also be used to treat acne. This is a mild chemical solution to help unclog your pores and remove dead skin cells, whiteheads, and blackheads. This will also help generate new skin growth giving you better looking skin.
