How to Get Rid of Acne?

Contrary to popular belief, acne isn’t just for teenagers; in fact, it’s estimated that 54% of women and 40% of men over the age of 25 suffer from chronic acne outbreaks. 

And while the causes of acne can be attributed to a number of different issues – like genetics, hormonal changes, lifestyle, and more – it’s safe to say that everyone who has acne has this one question on their mind:

“How do I get rid of acne?”

At New York Skin & Vein Centers, we’ve got the answer you’ve been looking for. Read on to learn more about our treatments that can get rid of acne for good!

Acne Oneonta

ZO Skin Health 

For many people with acne outbreaks, having the right skincare regimen can do a world of wonders. And while there are plenty of so-called acne solutions available over-the-counter, the truth is that many of these products are so drying that they can actually exacerbate acne.

ZO Skin Health is a line of skincare products that are only available at medical clinics and dermatology offices. From cleansers and moisturizers to acne serums, each product is designed to cleanse pores, minimize inflammation, and prevent future outbreaks.

BLU-U Light Therapy

If you have mild to moderate acne outbreaks, laser blue light therapy could be a good solution for you.

BLU-U Light Therapy emits bacteria-busting wavelengths to the targeted treatment area. In addition to treating current outbreaks, it clears away bacteria that can lead to future outbreaks.

BLU-U Light Therapy is so effective, in fact, that studies have shown it can reduce acne by 30%-70% in a single month.

For teenagers and young adults with severe acne, there’s Accutane, a powerful anti-acne treatment designed to get rid of severe acne outbreaks. Accutane is available by prescription only and needs to be monitored closely. If you choose Accutane as a treatment, expect monthly check-ins and blood work to monitor your progress.

However, Accutane remains one of the most effective treatments for severe acne, making it the go-to choice for people who want to get rid of acne for good.
