Different Types Of Acne We Treat
Here are the different types of acne we treat at our clinic:
Whiteheads are a type of acne vulgaris that mostly develop on your face, chest, neck, and back. Excess oil and dead skin block hair follicles or sebaceous/oil glands and create a closed bump on your skin. Whiteheads look whitish or yellowish, which tends to affect adolescents and people at any age. We do chemical peels and laser treatments to cure whiteheads.
Blackheads are tiny bumps that develop on your skin because of clogged hair follicles. Such bumps are called blackheads as the surface looks black or dark. Blackheads are mild acne that forms on your face, shoulders, chest, arms, neck, and back. Chemical peels and laser therapy can reduce your blackheads.
Papules are raised areas of skin tissues, which are less than 1 cm around. They have distinct /indistinct borders or can develop in various colors, shapes, and sizes. Papules, mostly called skin lesions, are mainly changes in your skin color and texture. Sometimes, they also cluster together to develop a rash. Our treatment can cure papules if the condition gets critical.
Pustules are mainly big pimples and bulging skin patches filled with yellowish fluid, called pus. They form when you have a certain type of infection and your body tries to fight it off with white blood cells, i.e., pus. The formation of pus in a pore or beneath your skin can cause a pustule. Opt for our treatment if your pustules don’t get better in a few weeks.
Nodules are generally lumps under the skin that are at least 1 cm in size. They are often visible and feel like hard lumps on your skin. Infections, thyroid hormones, iodine deficiency, and lymphadenopathy are common causes of nodules. Consult our dermatologist so we can identify the exact cause of nodules and suggest the right treatment accordingly.
Cysts are small pockets of tissues filled with fluid, air, or other elements. Injection, inflammation, and genetics are common causes of cysts. Even though they are usually benign but may require treatment if complications arise. Cysts form under your skin on any body part. If you want to get rid of a cyst formed on any visible body part, consult our dermatologist.
Types of Acne Treatments Available At Our Clinic
Topical retinoids can treat blackheads, whiteheads, and acne lesions. People above 12 years of age can apply that directly to acne-affected areas. You should apply a very thin layer of topical retinoids with clean hands. Ensure your skin is fully clean and dry before the application.
Topical antibiotics are to be applied directly on the acne-affected area. Erythromycin and clindamycin are the most common topical antibiotics. They work best on inflammatory acne, which forms when bacteria enter clogged pores. Other types of acne can also be reduced with the application of topical antibiotics.
You can find many oral medications that can help in treating acne. The most effective oral medication depends on your circumstances, such as health, age, and the criticality of the acne condition. Even oral contraceptives can cure acne by controlling androgen levels and overactive sebaceous glands.
Advanced Aesthetic Procedures:
A chemical peel uses a gentle acid that can exfoliate your acne-affected skin. Chemical exfoliants, such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid, can remove your skin’s topmost layer. The peeling has a brighter effect on your skin and removes bacteria, oil, dirt, and debris from the pores. You get clearer, smoother, and less acne-prone skin.
Comedone extraction is an acne treatment, which is a kind of mechanical exfoliation. Mechanical exfoliation removes acne blockages from your skin with force application. We use a comedones extractor, a special tool to remove blockages from hair follicles. This treatment works well only on acne that hasn’t got inflamed, such as blackheads and whiteheads.
Intralesional injections help in quickly healing big breakouts but can’t prevent their recurrence. They aren’t suitable as a regular acne treatment but can blur large blemishes. As the needles are extremely thin, the treatment procedure is often painless.
Laser acne treatment is the quickest way to cure hyperpigmentation and scars left after acne. This treatment also works on inflammatory acne. The laser heats hemoglobin in your blood capillaries and removes scars from your skin. As the blood vessels heat up, they deprive your skin’s upper layer of nutrients and oxygen, which sheds and replaces them with healthier and newer skin

Frequently Asked Questions On Acne Treatments
Acne laser treatment can be effective in reducing acne, but it may not necessarily be permanent. The results of the treatment can vary depending on several factors, including the severity of the acne, the type of laser used, and how well the individual takes care of their skin after the treatment.
Laser treatment works by targeting the bacteria that cause acne, reducing inflammation, and promoting collagen production to help heal the skin. In some cases, laser treatment can lead to a long-term reduction in acne breakouts, but it may not completely eliminate acne.
Retinoids are a type of medication that can be used to treat acne. They work by targeting the processes that contribute to acne formation, such as excess oil production, clogged pores, and inflammation.
Retinoids are derived from vitamin A, and they work by binding to specific receptors in the skin cells. This binding stimulates the production of new skin cells, which can help to unclog pores and prevent the formation of new pimples. Retinoids can also help to reduce inflammation in the skin, which can be helpful for reducing redness and swelling associated with acne.
Chemical peels are a type of treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of acne-prone skin by removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and promoting new skin growth. There are several types of chemical peels that can be effective for acne, and the best option will depend on the individual’s skin type and the severity of their acne.
Here are some of the most common chemical peels used to treat acne:
Salicylic acid peels
Glycolic acid peels
Yes, CO2 laser treatment can be effective for reducing the appearance of acne scars. CO2 laser treatment works by delivering a high-energy beam of light to the skin, which helps to resurface and remodel the skin, reducing the appearance of scars.
During the treatment, the CO2 laser creates microscopic wounds in the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for healthy skin. This collagen remodeling helps to fill in the depressed areas of acne scars and smooth out the skin’s surface.
