Acne is a multifactorial problem that originates in the sebaceous glands of the face, neck, and trunk. These glands produce the oil that protects our skin. Several factors like stress, polycystic ovarian disease, oily cosmetics, hyperglycemic diets, and dairy products tend to worsen acne. Conventionally, treatments for acne include topical, peels, antibiotics, hormonal therapy, and isotretinoin for severe cases; these methods are still widely used in many dermatology clinics.

At The Skin Clinic, we implement cutting-edge medical treatments like chemical peelings and extractions of white and black heads for significant and efficient results. For treating inflammatory acne, we rely on light sources such as lasers, which work wonders for stubborn and complicated cases. Our experience has shown that these light sources have powerful antibacterial effects that lead to positive impacts on the sebaceous glands in just a few treatment sessions. Laser treatment leads to a rapid and sustained response, decreasing red spots and marks.Moreover, these methods prove to be more effective and have fewer side-effects than traditional topical or oral treatments.

After obtaining clear skin, we suggest continuing with maintenance treatments that might involve dietary restrictions. In situations where hormonal changes are the cause of acne, we recommend Aldactone, rather than isotretinoin, to achieve successful results. We believe that the focus should move from chemical treatments to physical modalities to improve the quality of treatment and reduce side effects. . Our team is always striving to be at the forefront of this new approach.
