Treatment for Chest Acne

Posted in Adult Acne by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
Dealing with Chest AcneChest acne may not be discussed as much as acne on the back or acne on the face, but it is quite common.  Both men and women experience chest acne, usually during their adult years.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Chest acne does not always respond well to over-the-counter acne treatments.  For this reason, we recommend visiting your dermatologist as soon as you begin to notice chest acne.  Acne on the chest can develop at any time during life, but it is most commonly seen during the later teenage years and early adult years."
The best treatments for chest acne includes both prescription medications and in-office treatments, including laser and light-based therapy.  Depending on the severity of chest acne, your dermatologist may prescribe your oral medications, in addition to topical formulations.  At-home treatments, such as the Clarisonic brush, can also be helpful when treating chest acne.  The Clarisonic brush removes excess oil and debris from the pores of the chest much more effectively than regular cleansing.
In-office treatments, such as the Isolaz acne laser and Photodynamic Therapy, can help to deliver a more effective treatment for chest acne.  These treatments not only kill the acne-causing bacteria, but also clean out the pores and decrease excessive oil production from the sebaceous glands.  Laser acne treatments tend to work more quickly than prescription treatments alone.
