Adult Acne Treatments That Really Work

By January 2, 2017Skin

When you were younger, you knew that your face was going to break out in pimples. You knew that acne was a normal part of your teen years, but you didn’t expect to continue to have breakouts well into your 20s, 30s, and beyond. The fact is, though society tells us that acne is an adolescent problem, millions of adults continue to suffer from acne throughout their lives.

Fortunately, though, there are adult acne treatments that really do work to reduce or completely eliminate breakouts and acne scars. Before you buy an over-the-counter remedy that will claim to cure your acne but will only leave you with cracked, dry skin, check out a few of the best options for getting rid of acne altogether.


During a photofacial, your skin will be exposed to intense light focused on a very specific part of the light spectrum. Studies have shown that this kind of treatment can offer dramatic improvements for skin tone and health. Light in the blue spectrum in particular has been shown to kill the bacteria deep in your pores that cause pimples and acne breakouts to form. Instead of drying your skin out with harsh cleansers and/or acne creams, you may actually be able to stop breakouts before they start.

Chemical Peels

You may also be able to rid your face of acne with a chemical peel. Chemical peels are made up of enzymes and vitamins that eat away the top layers of damaged and dead skin on your face. Those damaged, dead, and dying skin cells will often clog your pores, and they make your skin look dull and aged, too. With a chemical peel, you can treat your acne while rejuvenating your skin at the same time.

Laser Skin Treatments

If you’re like most adults who’ve battle with acne their whole lives, you probably have at least a few acne scars, even if you’ve tried your best to avoid irritating your skin, popping pimples, or doing anything else to cause scarring. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with those scars forever. Instead, you can opt for laser skin treatments. An ablative laser procedure will burn away the scar tissue, leaving behind healthy, beautiful skin and no acne scars at all.

You might also want to consider non-ablative laser treatment options, as well. Basically, with one of these treatments, the heat of the laser will stimulate collagen production. As collagen is the chemical that helps keep your skin supple and young, it will also help in preventing scar tissue from forming and keeping your skin looking gorgeous as you defeat your adult acne for good.

Dermal Fillers

Finally, dermal fillers can do wonders to make your acne scars disappear. You probably already know that these injections are often used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, right? Well, they can also fill in the crags and sunken areas left by acne scars. After a session of dermal filler injections, your face will be smooth and gorgeous once more.
