The fourth and last aspect, which will be tackled in this article in more detail, is getting medical care.

Consult a dermatologist

A dermatologist is basically an expert on any skin condition. They can help you by examining your skin and its condition, and come up with tailored solutions or approaches to treating your acne.

More severe types of acne, such as nodules and cysts, may sometimes require surgical removal.

For acne scars, you may choose to undergo dermabrasion, another surgical treatment that involves removing the skin’s dead cells, revealing lighter skin.

This improves the appearance of acne scars dramatically. Depending on your acne scars’ severity, more than one session might be needed before the scars are fully diminished.

Hormonal therapy

Hormonal imbalance is one of the factors that can trigger the development of acne. This is why girls on their periods are more prone to getting breakouts. The same can be observed in adolescents entering puberty.

Other examples of events that involve, or cause hormonal changes, include changes in medications, amenorrhea, and pregnancy.

High levels of hormonal activity result in more androgens being produced, which can then result in too much sebum production.

Too much sebum can clog pores, which can trigger acne. Consult a doctor if you believe that your acne may be a result of hormonal imbalance.

Light therapy

Phototherapy and laser therapy are popular treatments for cystic acne, nodular acne, and acne inflammation. It has been proven by studies to be highly effective for numerous patients.

However, it is still best to get the go signal from a doctor before undergoing light therapy.

The three medical solutions discussed above may or may not be suitable for you, depending on the type of acne you have, its severity, and your unique needs and situation. Consult your trusted doctor first so they can recommend the best option for you.
