Because they are one of the most common skin problems, there are a lot of advices on the issue how to treat acnes, either medical or just from the experiences of other people. Acnes, of course, aren’t usually serious conditions, but if the state of some of them becomes worse, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.
The problem is that nowadays it exists a lot of solutions for this problem and there are a lot of types of the acnes and pimples. And, also, they can be found almost anywhere on the body. So, the best way to classify pimples is to divide them in the three large groups: those of severe, moderate and mild condition.
In the case of the mild pimples, the treatment of cleansing the skin on the regular basis (two times during a day) should be enough, of course, along with the cosmetic products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These substances are effective removers of bacteria from the skin pores and skin surface. This is not so invasive treatment and because of that the results won’t be visible right away. But it is beneficial in long terms. Also, it is good to include the intake of the vitamins which improve the skin quality in general.
The moderate pimples are whiteheads, blackheads and comedones (hard plugs composed of sebum and dead skin cells), which are often extended over about the half of the facial skin. In these cases, it is advisable to visit dermatologist, since only the specialist can recommend the best combined therapy for each individual. Most commonly the extraction is done first of all (or the treatment with light), and then, certain creams are prescribed.
And finally, when acnes are in the most serious stage of development, the inflammatory process is included and the affected spot resembles a cyst. When it comes to the problem such as this, more invasive treatment is recommended, of course. It involves the surgical intervention, such as some of the different methods of drainage, along with the oral antibiotics. Sometimes, the other procedures can be performed. One of them is the injection of corticosteroids in order to melt the cysts.
In conclusion, it is good to emphasize that the more things one knows about his or hers condition, the treatment would be more effective. One of the most dangerous things is to make the mistake in choosing the treatment. Also, the fast solutions shouldn’t be hoped for.
