How is acne treated?

As there is no specific cure for acne, the aim of treatment is to clear blemishes and prevent scarring. If acne is severe, a doctor may provide a referral to see a dermatologist. Treatment options may include good home skincare habits, topical medications, oral antibiotics, isotretinoin, hormone medications, light therapies, cosmetic procedures, or a combination of one or more of these strategies.
