Best Acne Treatments for Teen Acne

Millions of teens suffer from acne. It is estimated that over 95% of teens experience acne breakouts at some point. Acne can have devastating effect of self esteem and confidence. Scarring from uncontrolled acne can carry the devastating effect for years after the acne breakouts are over.
I believe in addressing acne as early as possible and treating it quickly and efficiently.
The biggest problem with teen acne treatment is lack of awareness which leads to using the wrong type of acne treatments, quitting too soon and not seeking medical advice when needed and not changing lifestyle
In our Southlake Texas dermatology practice, more than 90% of individuals with mild to moderate acne achieve excellent control with our Naila MD acne treatment systems combined with a few minor lifestyle modifications.

About 10% of our acne patients need prescription medications and other medical in office treatments such as medical microdermabrasion, medicated chemical peels etc for initial 6-12 weeks alongside the Naila MD Acne treatment systems
If you are a teenager with oily skin, lots of blackheads, whiteheads, here is a short list of best acne treatment strategies to be acne free in a few weeks:

Best Acne Treatment Skincare:
Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin process. Most acne treatments cause excess skin dryness and irritation which leads to a never ending cycle of acne-inflammation-acne. Try Naila MD ACNE| Anti-inflammatory Teen Acne System, 2 to 3 steps twice a day as directed to break the acne-inflammatory-acne cycle. *In as little as two weeks you will notice fewer breakouts, better skin texture, smaller pores, fewer pigmented acne scars
Best Acne Treatment Diet:

  • Cut down sugars and simple carbohydrates from your diet. Eliminate soda and sugary drinks. Cut down cookies, candy and deserts. Dial down potatoes, pasta and rice. Instead opt for lots of water, fresh fruits & vegetables, whole grain breads, brown rice
  • Cut down saturated fats: Like deep fried food, cheese burgers and fries. Opt for grilled lean, organic meat, or meat cooked with olive oil
  • Eliminate dairy from your diet: Dairy contains tons of inflammatory ingredients which increase skin inflammation. Organic dairy is better but even organic milk contains hormones that can exacerbate your acne
    Stress Management for Best Acne Treatment:
    Most people experience worsening of acne during stressful periods. Chronic stress leads to hormonal imbalance which contributes to increase in skin inflammation and recurring acne. Manage your stress better, set aside some time to relax, meditate, exercise to lower your stress level.

    Exercise for Best Acne Treatment:
    Regular exercise reduces stress mediators and insulin levels and lowers chronic inflammation. Best type of exercise is a combination of aerobic and strength training. Be sure to work out in a cool environment without constricting clothing.
    Excess sweating in very hot climate can actually exacerbate acne by overproduction of sweat, oils and pore clogging.

    Supplements for Best Acne Treatments:
    We have found that regular supplementation with extra Niacin and Copper/ Zinc reduces chronic inflammatory disorders such as acne, eczema etc. WE reommend oral supplements to our patients with moderate inflammatory acne. Be sure to check with your physician before starting any supplements
    If you are a teen with mild to moderate inflammatory acne, try the above for 6-8 weeks. If your acne is no better, see your dermatologist for additional help. Don’t let acne get you down!
