Acne is a dermatological condition that can be dramatically improved with the right treatment. At ID+LC we’ve successfully treated patients of all ages, ranging from mild to severe cases.

Acne Treatment Options

Most forms of acne are easily and effectively treated with antibiotic or retinoid creams, and severe cases with inflamed papules and pustules respond well to long-term oral antibiotics.

Cystic acne, the most severe and potentially disfiguring form, is usually treated with a retinoid tablet called Isotretinoin. This is a very effective treatment that has been used for many years, but due to its potential side effects it can only be prescribed in certain conditions and under close medical supervision.
