Acne can start in teenage years and continue until mid life. There are several causes proposed for this common condition involving the pilo-sebaceous units.

Today, there are many effective acne treatments including topical and oral therapies. This does not mean that every acne treatment works for everyone who has acne. But it does mean that virtually every case of acne can be controlled. Waiting for acne to clear on its own can be frustrating. Without treatment, acne can cause permanent scars, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.

To avoid these possible outcomes, Dr. Khakshaee recommends that people treat their acne early. When the skin clears, treatment may still be continued to prevent new breakouts. AK Care provides various treatments for acne management. Nevertheless, home regimens are an essential part of the treatment in addition to clinic therapies.

Before embarking on any treatments, AK Care recommends to have a one to one consult with Dr. AK or our aesthetician. During this session skin and facial assessment will be done. Mutual decision is made as to what treatments can be done. As you all may know, medical and cosmetic skin care is overlooked in lots of people.

Home regimen remedies and professional treatments are routinely needed based on your skin type, colour, ageing and expectation. We ensure that all our patient stay happy and satisfied in their skin.

What Acne Treatments Are Available?

There are several acne treatments available based on your age, gender, and severity, among other factors. Mild or moderate cases of acne can be treated with topical creams or gels. Oral antibiotics or hormone controlling medications can be effective for more inflammatory acne. Isotretinoin (accutane) is a helpful tool for very stubborn or very severe acne. Other types of acne therapy can also be used, such as certain light or photodynamic therapies. AK Care utilizes a variety of acne treatment methods, so contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Can acne scars be permanent?

Depending on the severity or intensity of the inflammation, the lasting impression of acne scarring can vary. While some may fade on their own with time, most acne scars are permanent and may come in the form of ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars, hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic or keloid scars.

Why do I need to consult a doctor for acne scars?

Professional therapists are able to perform procedures such as extractions or exfoliation as they keep a clean environment and use sanitized tools to remove the acne pus. When we do it at home, there is seldom a guarantee that our hands or fingers are 100% clean, hence we may run the risk of infection or possibly spread the bacteria from the pus to other non-affected areas.

Are acne scar removal treatments effective?

Yes, acne scar removal treatments are recommended for anyone who wants smoother-looking skin. AK Care provides various treatments for acne management.

Are acne scar removal treatments painful?

Depending on the type of treatment you are prescribed, acne scar removal treatments may range in pain intensity. For invasive treatments such as subcision, the procedures may be slightly painful due to the nature of the surgery. Non-ablative treatments have been reported to have tolerable pressure by satisfied clients.

How is acne scar treatments different from ointments and topical creams?

Certain scar-removal ointments containing glycolic and salicylic acid can help in gradually reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. With acne scars like ice pick scars or boxcar scars, which are some of the most common types of atrophic scars, these may require professional help.
