If you have been spending hundreds of dollars on over-the-counter acne creams and gels that promise to help clear your skin, you are probably wasting your time and money. The good news is that there are effective ways to eliminate your acne and keep pimples at bay.

If you are prone to breakouts, try switching your products to ‘non-comedogenic’ ones. What this means is that the products are specially formulated not to clog pores. Try to use water-based products so that they can be easily washed off.

Topical applications containing vitamin A acid is also effective to improve acne conditions. Vitamin A encourages cell turnover and effectively removes whiteheads and blackheads and clears clogged pores by sloughing off dead skin cells on the surface. With the pores cleared, there will be no bacterial action within the pores.

On the advice of an aesthetic doctor, you can also try some targeted treatments to eliminate severe acne and prevent scarring of the skin.

AGNES Acne Treatment offered by Radium Medical Aesthetics is a latest treatment designed by Korean doctors to permanently eliminate acne by targeting the root problem. The doctor uses a special micro-insulated needle to deliver radiofrequency waves to destroy hyperactive sebaceous glands that are responsible for the formation of acne.

Local anesthesia will first be administered to ensure comfort. The micro-insulated needle protects the surface of the skin and surrounding tissue while it delivers targeted radiofrequency waves to destroy the glands.

With the active sebaceous glands destroyed by the heat emitted by the radiofrequency waves, hair follicles no longer get infected and acne no longer recurs.

Another option is to undergo a chemical peel treatment. A chemical peel is a straightforward treatment that essentially reduce the bacteria formation and sebum production by removing the top layer of dead skin cells. The treatment acts as a chemical exfoliant to remove the top layer to reveal the less damaged skin underneath.
