Diagnosis

The first thing a dermatologist will do to treat your acne is to gather some background information from you and to look at your skin to diagnose your specific type of acne. Factors that may contribute to the type of treatment needed include the type and location of your acne, previous treatments, when the breakouts occurred, your age, and the condition of your skin.

Some people may have a few different types of acne, such as whiteheads, blackheads, or other types of pimples. Since many different types of acne could appear on various parts of your face and body, the type of acne you have is a major factor in helping to determine the type of treatment that is needed to clear your skin.

Treatment Options

While every person's skin and acne may be different, there are some common types of treatments that a dermatologist may use to treat your acne. Some of these more common treatments may include topical treatments, oral medications, antibiotics, hormonal therapy, light or laser therapy, corticosteroids, or changing your diet. To determine the best treatment for your skin, it is essential to see a dermatologist for help.
