What are the best acne treatments?

What is acne?
Acne is a skin condition that often occurs when the oil glands in the skin become blocked. This is usually due to the build-up of bacteria that develops because of the overproduction of sebum.

What are the best acne treatments?
In the quest to find the best acne treatment, always look for the procedure that matches the needs of your skin condition, as well as your skin type.

  • Here are some of the best acne treatments now available:
    PhotoDynamic LED Light Therapy.Solutions like Omnilux PhotoDynamic LED Light Therapy combine narrow band wavelengths of both red and blue light to successfully treat acne. The blue light kills the acne bacteria, while the red light shrinks the oil glands in the skin.
  • Microdermabrasion.With microdermabrasion a mild abrasive device is used to strip away dead skin cells that have accumulated on the skin, and a strong suction then clears out the debris from the pores. Advanced microdermabrasion systems also infuse serum into the skin.
  • Chemical peels. Chemical peels involve the application of acids to the skin, which are used to peel away the upper surface layer. Chemical peels are also beneficial for acne because they have an anti-inflammatory effect, and help to reduce oil secretions.
