Acne doesn’t just affect teenagers. It can leave a lasting impression on the faces of adults. Men who struggle with acne face the same consequences as anyone else: lowered confidence, frustration, and a simple desire to get rid of blemishes. Fortunately, acne treatments have come a long way.

Finding the best acne treatment for men requires working with a dermatologist who is an expert in acne-related concerns.

There are two approaches that we can take to acne issues:

Medical Management

If you’re still living with breakouts, the first plan of attack is to understand your lifestyle and what measures you’re already taking. While it’s not possible to accurately pinpoint what causes every blemish you experience, we can narrow it down. High levels of stress, unhealthy skin care practices, and diet can all have some effect.

Once your dermatologist understands your background, it’s time to target your acne with medications that can help correct the issue. A few options include:

  • Retinoids, which help unclog pores that lead to more visual acne
  • Antibiotics, which help to destroy the bacteria that infects your pores and causes acne
  • Anti-inflammatory medications, in cases of cystic acne. Cystic acne is incredibly painful and can lead to swelling and scarring in the area. Injections of anti-inflammatory medicine into the cyst can help reduce the pain and aid in faster healing

Cosmetic Rejuvenation
