FAQ About Acne: Oral Contraceptive Pills for Adult Acne, Laser Treatment for Acne

Posted in Adult Acne, Laser Acne Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
Can oral contraceptive pills help to treat adult acne? Oral contraceptive pills can be effective in treating adult acne in female patients.  A few oral contraceptive pills, such as Yaz and Yasmin, have an FDA indication for the treatment of acne, though many oral contraceptive pills may be beneficial when treating female adult acne. However, women who are hoping to become pregnant soon should look for an alternative treatment for fighting acne. The best–and most effective–ways to treat acne for women in their childbearing years are often through Blue Light Therapy, cortisone injections,  Isolaz laser treatments and “Category B” prescription topical medications, such as Finacea. Which laser treatments are best for adult acne? Adult patients with acne benefit most from Photodynamic Therapy and the Isolaz laser treatment.  Photodynamic Therapy uses a medication called aminolevulinic acid, which is applied to the skin’s surface and then activated by a blue LED light.  This process decreases p. acnes bacteria, deceases sebum production and is anti-inflammatory.  The Isolaz laser treatment uses a gentle vacuum to clear out the pores and a light to kill the p. acnes bacteria inside the pores.  These laser treatments for adult acne both help to clear acne more quickly than prescription medications.
