Acne Treatment FAQs

What Causes Acne?

How Can I Treat Acne?
Acne treatment depends on the severity and type of acne you have. Mild acne is treatable with over-the-counter topical medications containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or alpha-hydroxy acids. Moderate to severe acne may require prescription medications such as topical retinoids, oral antibiotics, or isotretinoin. Advanced therapies such as chemical peels, and photodynamic therapy may also be helpful.
