How To Get Rid Of Acne

By Bradd Alan

Dealing with acne is one of the greatest challenges to the modern teenager. This chronic skin condition when not dealt with completely can even spread to the early adult years with pronounced pimples and redness on the face, coupled with blackheads and whiteheads. The good news is that Acne is curable. You can use home remedies to deal with it, or go to a dermatologist to get your skin checked out and get the proper medication with antibiotics to avoid further infection.

One of the ways to deal with it is salt therapy. Although it has not been tested by dermatologists, many people who have used it claim that it works. This is because it functions on the fact that acne is caused by lack of sufficient calcium sulfate in the body. This skin care method also cures other conditions other than acne.

You can also use some traditional home remedies to cure uncomfortable pimples on the face. Applying small bits of toothpaste, raw egg whites, honey or lemons on the affected areas and leaving it overnight can help remove these pimples. Another home remedy is garlic paste. Dermatologists have not proved these old school home remedies yet, although it may not hurt to try.

Scientific procedures have evolved today, and so it is easier to deal with acne with the right equipment. Laser therapy is one such method. This fast but expensive procedure may vary depending on the nature and intensity of your pimples. You can for example use high intensity lasers for stubborn long-term pimples, diode lasers for slightly more advanced symptoms or blue light therapy is minor pimples on the face.

Heat therapy is another modern technology used to treat troublesome pimples on the face. This technology normally involves reducing the size of the sebaceous glands to minimize the amount of oil they produce. This causes a temporary red appearance on the face because of the heat involved. Unlike the laser therapy, this skin therapy normally takes a bit of time to cure, sometimes even a few months.

A more recently used method is microdermabrasion. This skin care method involves elimination of the top layer of dead skin cells, and production of new ones to get rid of undesirable pimples on the face. This scientific process involves severe procedures and takes sometime before you can see the results, but the fruits will not disappoint you.

You can also use some antibiotics to deal with acne. It is however important to have your dermatologist prescribe the right medication before trying any skin care products. Oral antibiotics work well to cure severe cases of acne by destroying bacteria and preventing the skin from scarring.

Isotretinoin is another effective method that can help remove unwanted pimples on the face. Despite it being neglected because of expense, it works well by lowering the level of sebum oil produced by your skin glands, which prevents the onset of pimples on the skin. Seek medical attention if you are not sure what kind of acne you have so that you get the right treatment.
