What is Acne?

It’s a condition in which red, inflamed spots appear on the skin that is filled with pus. It happens when skin pores fill up with oily secretions, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, or pimples. These gashes usually appear on the face but are not limited to it. They can appear on the chest, shoulders, neck, upper arms, and back. If acne is moderate, you can minimize the bacteria with oral antibiotics.

Acne Treatment Options

Let’s explain these treatment methods one by one.

Topical Treatment

Topical treatment is prescribed by dermatologists to fight mild to moderate acne. Creams, ointments, or gels are applied directly to the affected area which kills the bacteria and unclogs the pores. These topical products are also prescribed in combination with antibiotic oral medications as an effective mild acne treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is considered the best laser treatment for acne in Dubai. It is suitable for all types of skin and acne. An advanced fractional CO2 laser is used that resurfaces the skin, kills the acne-causing bacteria, and unclogs the pores which are responsible for acne formation.

This treatment involves the delivery of fractionated CO2 laser beams to the affected area in a fractionated manner so that columns of skin are left undamaged. It promotes collagen production and the fresh skin that appears is smooth, even, and healthy. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are effectively being used as an acne spot treatment in Dubai. Your dermatologist designs the treatment solution according to your needs and skin condition which vary from person to person. An acidic solution is applied to the affected area and left for a while. Peels can neutralize acne by killing bacteria and eliminating the layer of dead and damaged skin cells to resurface the skin. You may require multiple sessions of chemical peels to achieve the best results.

Post Procedure Care

After the treatment, follow the given instructions.

  • Apply soothing gel
  • Limit sun tanning
  • Do not rub and touch the treated area.
  • Apply sunscreen and moisturizers.
