Treatments For Acne Under The Skin

Sandy asks…

What’s the best acne treatment for under the skin pimples?

I currently use Proactiv and it’s not treaty the under-skin pimples i have. It works wonders for the few white heads i get but i mainly get the under-skin pimples that hurt to touch. My skin is normal. It’s not oily or dry its just normal. Please not im 14 so nothing too expensive. If you have acne like mine what do you suggest i use?

Jenny asks…

Are there any other acne treatments that are powerful other than Accutane?

I have cystic acne, and my doctor told me that I should definitely try Accutane. The only issue is that my insurance doesn’t cover it and it would cost over $1000 a month. I’ve been using the Murad acne process and that’s been working well for me, but that doesn’t work for the cystic acne under the skin, only the blemishes on the top layer. Are there any other medications or products that have worked on cystic acne that you know of? Thank you times ten in advance.
I’m already using a topical treatment called Murad. It’s basically Proactive x10 so that really won’t help me. That doesn’t take care of acne under the skin, only on top.

For bad acne like this that isn’t topical, just about everything other than accutane is useless. Accutane guarantees results and there really arn’t any other choices on the market right now for severe acne. It’s also fustrating when people do not realize that topical treatments do not work for the kind of acne we have. They, at the best of times, merely keep the acne from getting worse if they do even that. There is nothing special in proactive. You can find the same ingredients in store brand soaps that cost 10 times less.

Do know that often the treatment is not permanent, though. I’ve been on it three times, and will probably opt for a lifetime treatment taking one pill a week. It works very well for me, but the effects are not permanent. The only saving grace here is I get months of accutane for free (I live in Canada).

I sincerely hope that accutane works for you the first time and you can slay this awful disease.

Michael asks…

How long does clinique acne solutions take to work?

I was just curious about when I should expect my face to be totally clear.

I have pretty mild acne. Mostly under the skin bumps in my t-zone, around my jawline and on my chin.

I started using this a few days ago and have already noticed a difference.
-no new pimples
-less oily
-feels cleaner
-looks softer

So again, how long will it take for full results?

Maintain a routine. Most acne treatments take time to work. It usually takes between two and eight weeks before you see any significant improvement, so you are going to have to be patient. Once you’ve gotten your acne cleared up, it’s important to continue with the treatment that’s working so it does not return.

If all else fails, contact a doctor. Mild antibiotics that are available only by prescription can help reduce acne. Keep in mind though, that the widespread overuse (taking antibiotics when you really don’t need them or for something they don’t treat) and misuse (not taking medication for the specified amount of time) of antibiotics has led to the development of multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria. That means that the antibiotics won’t work for the things they used to (including your acne).

Keep hair off of your face if at all possible. If you want to keep your bangs, then consider taking showers regularly or keeping your forehead clean with oil-dabbing cloths / clean tissues / etc.

Get good sleep. Stress increases your skin’s oiliness, which, combined with sweat and dirt, can clog pores and cause pimples. (Change your pillowcase frequently.)

Acne medications may cause your skin to initially break out worse than before because all FDA-approved acne medications (benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and sulfur) are causing your skin to regenerate faster. This brings existing acne pimples already under your skin (but not visible yet) to the surface, which in turn causes a massive but fortunately temporary break out. Give the medications time to work — about one to two weeks — and you will notice a big difference in the quality of your skin.
