Different for all: There are a lot of different acne medications and treatments available depending on your age and the severity of your acne. You should see your regular doctor to discuss the options in more detail. Usually, finding the right combination of treatments is what is needed to improve acne. Unfortunately it's a difficult thing to cure, but with patience and persistence it can happen!
