In the future, we may have a vaccine to immunise ourselves against these bacteria. Right now, we have blue light laser and IPL treatments which kill the bacteria that cause acne. We can also treat acne with medium to long-term antibiotics after a consultation with a medical prescriber.
We can treat the acute inflammatory response with soothing medical grade topical treatments, such as the ones we find in the Obagi system for acne treatment, our Hydrafacial systems and our Profacial systems.
We can unblock pores that encourage bacterial colonisation and cyst formation. We do this using a combination of in-clinic treatment with skin peels, hydrafacial, profacial treatments and home treatments with professional grade skin care products
Reducing sebum production can be performed with topical creams or prescription grade tablets or creams. We can use vitamin A analogues to help modify the sebaceous glands so that they reduce their oil production. The most effective treatments are prescription only products to treat acne, such as Tretinoin,, and are best discussed at a consultation.
