Medications & treatment for acne

ACNE (Pimple)
Acne is the most common skin condition.

Treatments and drugs for acne

a)Topical medications

These products work best when applied to clean, dry skin about 15 minutes after washing. You may not see the benefit of this treatment for a few weeks. And you may notice skin irritation at first, such as redness, dryness and peeling.
The most common topical prescription medications for acne are:

  • Retinoids. These come as creams, gels and lotions. Retinoid drugs are derived from vitamin A and include tretinoin , adapalene and tazarotene. It works by preventing plugging of the hair follicles.

  • Antibiotics. These work by killing excess skin bacteria and reducing redness. For the first few months of treatment, you may use both a retinoid and an antibiotic, with the antibiotic applied in the morning and the retinoid in the evening. The antibiotics are often combined with benzoyl peroxide to reduce the likelihood of developing antibiotic resistance

b) Acne wash cleanser

Our Radiant Acne Cleanser is a synergistic formula with AHA, BHA and Enzymes for deep cleansing, effective exfoliation and refines pores. It thoroughly removes excess oil and surface impurities to reduce the appearance of acne and promotes a clear and smooth complexion.

It has synergistically soothing effect from plant extracts, removes dirt, excess oil and makeup at the same time and possess moisture retention ability and leaves velvety soft-touched skin.

c)Oral medications

  • Antibiotics. For moderate to severe acne, you may need oral antibiotics to reduce bacteria and fight inflammation.

  • Isotretinoin. This medicine is reserved for people with the most severe acne. Doctor consultation is required for this medicine. Isotretinoin is a powerful drug for people whose acne doesn't respond to other treatments. Oral isotretinoin is very effective. But because of its potential side effects, doctors need to closely monitor anyone they treat with this drug. The most serious potential side effects include ulcerative colitis, an increased risk of depression and suicide, and severe birth defects.
