What will help my acne heal faster?

What will help my acne heal faster?

Simple treatment: Pimples occur when glands in our skin get blocked and what they secrete collects and causes pressure. The immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Gentle cleansing and avoid picking/squeezing lets nature take its course. ...Read more

How can I heal cuts made from picking acne fast?

How can I heal cuts made from picking acne fast?

Leave them alone: Simple avoidance of further picking will allow excoriations to do what they are trying to do: heal. Although I will admit that stopping the practice is not easy. I tell patients to apply plain vaseline when you feel the urge to pick. That way you are still doing something, just not something traumatic to the skin. ...Read more

I have acne on my cheecks and im 20. im using benzoylproxide on my acne every night. But it just can heal the acne not stopping them?

Acne: Deeper acne that is not opening spontaneously with gentle skin care at home will likely need medical extraction by an experienced acne care specialist. The sooner the impaction of the sebaceous gland is relieved, the faster the inflammation will be relieved and skin will heal. PB will just dry your skin, it will not heal active nodulocystic acne. ...Read more

Could you tell me what are natural ways I can do to prevent or heal acne?

Could you tell me what are natural ways I can do to prevent or heal acne?

Let's get real: The stuff that works the best -- antibiotics and vitamin a derivatives -- are mother nature's gifts. The stuff that doesn'twork (painting your face with magic honey, squeezing lemons on pimples) are unworthy of anyone in the 21st century. Whoever told you "natural is better" did you a grave disservice. Take charge and and get effective rx from your physician. ...Read more

I want to do the surgery that removes the old acnes and I like to know how long it takes to heal, how long the surgery is, and how much it costs.

Multiple treatments: Acne scars are difficult a deep chemical peel can cost from 600 to 1000 depending on location. Resurfacing lasers can cost a few hundred to a few thousand dollars and require about a week of downtime and several weeks of red appearing cheeks.
I would suggest a good board certified dermatologist who performs these type of procedures above a non medical " medi spa" ...Read more

War on acne! Ruled out environment and diet, working on stress. How can I heal my skin from the inside out?

All is fair in...: ... Love and war. Somebody has done you a terrible disservice. It is not a diet, stress, environment, or emotionally-based disease.

If you really want to be rid of your acne -- a chronic, serious, primarily genetic disease -- you'll get evidence-based treatment in cooperation with a competent, reality-focused physician. ...Read more

I would like a mild acne treatment that heals red post acne marks?

I would like a mild acne treatment that heals red post acne marks?

Mild will fail: The red marks after acne lesions subside aren't treatable and you'll need to let them face on their own. Instead, focus on whatever it takes to keep your disease under control -- and if it's leaving red marks that stay around, you'll need strong stuff. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated isn't clearing you in 2 weeks, you'll need prescription-strength from your physician. ...Read more
