why don't most acne treatments work?
most acne treatments look at what is on your face or back or elsewhere and investigate how to dry up the acne that appears on the surface of your skin. salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and accutane all treat the surface appearance of acne, after your body has created it. lasers do the same. this method doesn’t get rid of acne because it doesn’t actually stop acne from forming at the source. worse than that, it often has unintended and sometimes even dangerous side-effects. below is a chart comparing the effects of some different acne products.
comparing acne treatments
there are many over-the-counter (otc) and prescription acne treatments on the market. It is important to keep potential side-effects in mind when comparing these acne products.
as the national institutes of health (NIH) states in their "questions and answers about acne: “topical otc medicines are available in many forms, such as gels, lotions, creams, soaps or pads.in some people, otc acne medicines may cause side effects such as skin irritation, burning, or redness.”*
“oral antibiotics, are thought to help control acne by curbing the growth of bacteria and reducing inflammation…some people taking these antibiotics have side effects such as an upset stomach, dizziness or lightheadedness, changes in skin color, and increased tendency to sunburn…prolonged treatment with oral antibiotics may be necessary to achieve the desired results.”
