Acne is a problem that almost everyone has to deal with. In fact, some people in the Burnaby, Coquitlam, Vancouver, Port Moody, and surrounding areas may experience terrible breakouts even past their teenage years. Most people have tried OTC (over-the-counter) medications. They work for some; others see no results. The good news is, additional treatment options exist for those that see no effect with OTC medications. That’s why you are encouraged to find out if you should seek professional acne treatments or stick with your OTC ointments.
Types of Professional Acne Treatments
There are various prescription drugs you can use to eliminate acne. However, these can come with unpleasant side effects and downsides. There are also other treatments that can be done to prevent or remove acne. Some of the best of these include photodynamic therapy, Blu-U light therapy, medical-grade skin care products, and the SKN dermal roller.
Professional Treatments or OTC Medication?
Which type of treatment is best will vary from person to person. Some people may experience the desired results from OTC medication; some people will require something more powerful to remove the acne. Trial and error is the only way to be sure which is right for you. If acne persists after extended use of OTC products, it may be time to consult a professional.
Which Professional Treatments are Right for Me?
As you’ve already seen, professional acne treatments come in a variety of different types. A specialist will be able to help you decide which type of treatment is the perfect match for you. All the methods described above are effective at removing acne; however, all people are different, and they will all react differently. That’s why we create customized treatment plans.
