    Depending on your condition, the frequency and duration may vary.

Our team will choose the treatment that best suits your type of acne.

Treatment Options

As a rule of thumb, when dealing with a comedonal type of acne (whiteheads, blackheads), a topical treatment is recommended, usually in the form of creams. When the inflammatory component (pimples, pustules, cysts) is predominant, tablets are the most effective treatment option. During the consultation, the dermatologist will take into account these elements as well as your skin type to determine which is the best course of treatment for you.
