Acne Treatment In Gurgaon
Teenagers to adolescents to even fully-grown adults experience this irritating and often stubborn problem-acne. Anything that affects our skin eventually bothers our physical appearance. But, acne, not only looks unpleasant but also feels painful in severe cases.
Controlling acne has become a bare necessity in today’s world. This becoming increasingly difficult, with the increasing amount of processed and oily food and a reduced amount of physical activity in day-to-day life. Skyn Stories is one such clinic that caters to every type of skin and the various types and intensities of acne, solving the problem from the root cause.
What are the treatment options for acne at Skyn Stories?
Medications and Ointments:
After analyzing the cause for the relentless acne conditions, the doctor initially will recommend a topical therapy. This involves the application of certain creams and ointments which would reduce the intensity of acne and slowly stop their occurrence. Some of these medications are:
Azelaic Acid and Salicylic Acid Creams: These over-the-counter prescriptions, at the right doses and regular application can greatly help in controlling acne. They also have an antibacterial property which would prevent the spread of acne to the surrounding skin.
Antibiotic Therapy: Antibiotics at lower doses will help in reducing the number of bacteria on the skin and help control the number of outbreaks.
Retinoids: These are nothing but vitamin A extracts. The regular application shows lesser side effects with more benefits. It works by preventing the plugging of hair follicles.
Contraceptives: A combination of four contraceptives can be used to prevent acne. They work by balancing the hormonal levels to a required optimum. One must be careful while using these regularly as it could lead to the formation of clots.
In some cases, the mere use of drugs does not help the patient. Hence, clinical treatment may be necessary. Some of the clinical treatment modalities offered at Skyn Stories are:
Chemical Peels: This is a procedure where the patient’s face is repeatedly covered with chemical agents like salicylic acid, and retinoic acid. The repeated applications are needed as the results are not always long-lasting. These results are quite immediate.
Laser Therapy: A variety of lasers and photodynamic agents can be used. Light of specific wavelengths is used. Lasers heat up the blood within the capillaries and eventually lead to sloughing of the skin which allows new skin to form. This method is pretty efficient for the removal of scars and sometimes, even for reducing acne.
Steroidal Therapy: This is a type of treatment where the steroidal drug is directly injected into the affected areas. This rapidly reduces redness and inflammation.
At Skyn Stories, we try to analyze the problem before we treat the condition. This allows a more thorough treatment than otherwise.
