WHAT ARE THE OTHER EFFECTS OF ACNE?
Acne has effects other than the presentation of pimples and breakouts. These can include:
- Dark spots on the skin as acne heals, which can take months or years to disappear.
- Scars left by larger nodules and cysts as they heal. These don’t have to be permanent though. Early and consistent treatment, sometimes combined with dermatologist support, can help acne sufferers avoid scarring.
- Low self-esteem and depression.
The good news is that almost all acne is fully treatable – it’s just a case of finding the right combination of treatments for your skin.
ACNE TREATMENTS FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACNE
Acne is unique to each individual person. Choosing acne treatments that suit your personal causes and symptoms is essential.
We believe that PanOxyl® benzoyl peroxide wash is a good option for most people because it kills bacteria, speeds up skin cell shedding and reduces inflammation. But we recommend finding the best acne treatment for your individual skin, which may include working with a dermatologist.
