Acne is most often associated with oily skin, but there are some people with acne and dry skin who have tried a million creams, ointments, and topical medications that don’t help their break-outs. What are they to do? What is the best acne treatment for dry skin?
Acne and Dry Skin
Acne is bad enough on its own, but when combined with dry skin, it can be even more challenging to treat, as it often doesn’t respond to conventional treatments. When deciding on a treatment, choose one that won’t suck out all the oil from your skin, but will instead leave it clear and hydrated.
Best Acne Treatment for Dry Skin
There are also a range of laser and light treatments that are now being used to treat acne. Photodynamic therapy with AFT Intense Pulsed Light is one of the best acne treatments for people of all skin types.
Photodynamic Therapy with AFT Intense Pulsed Light
Photodynamic therapy is a technique that involves the use of a medication known as Levulan. Levulan is placed on the skin and is then activated with the intense pulsed light. The bacteria that are present in the acne pustules absorb the Levulan, and are eventually destroyed.
Photodynamic therapy for acne is available at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa. However, effective acne treatment may also require a total skin care package that includes other treatment protocols. At Wisconsin Vein Center, we also use chemical peels, and a variety of topical products for treating acne.
