Acne can put a damper on anyone’s face, and target their self-esteem. Many people turn to over-the-counter creams and cleansers that don’t work, so the war continues on. Luckily, here at Julie Kupersmith MD, PC in New Rochelle, New York, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD can provide different treatments depending on your personal need to treat acne and improve your skin.
Some acne treatments require four to eight weeks before seeing improvements, and in some cases, it will appear worse than better. Despite that, these treatments are designed to reduce the bacteria causing acne and improve the overall long-term health and look and of your skin.
Light therapy targets and kills the bacteria that causes the acne. This may also require a medication to your skin and take more than one appointment. Steroid injections are another treatment for those who have painful acne. This will help flatten the lumps and clear away the acne. Chemical peels can also help control some types of acne while improving your skin. This unclogs pores and removes your dead skin cells leaving your skin healthier and clearer.
