The treatment of acne, as with so many other medical disorders, has circled back on itself over the last few decades. Years ago, acne treatment depended upon “physical modalities,” such as scrubbing with harsh soaps, ultraviolet light, low dose X-ray sessions, and dietary changes. Prescription medicines, both topical and internal, revolutionized acne therapy with great success, culminating with Accutane in the 80’s, which is still by far the most effective medical agent for moderate to severe or stubborn acne. But the last few years have seen a rise in physical treatments--including Laser Genesis, microdermabrasion, dermalinfusion and dietary supplements--as alternatives in managing this unsightly, disfiguring condition.
Variety of Treatment Approaches
Microdermabrasion and dermalinfusion such as Diamond Glow abrade the outer layers of skin to unroof clogged pores and stimulate the removal of whiteheads and blackheads. Additionally, SilkPeelTM infuses acne-specific serum into the skin. Laser genesis treatments target the redness and pigmentation which often persist after flares of acne. And of late, dietary phytochemicals derived from certain vegetables have shown promise and efficacy by tweaking estrogen metabolism.
These additions to our armamentarium do not substitute for topical vitamin A creams, topical and systemic antibiotics, and internal vitamin A derivatives, which have the ability to clear and control a great majority of cases. But for those patients who suffer side effects, have very sensitive skin, or whose lifestyles or preferences favor non-medical solutions, there are now sensible alternatives which can help.
