FAQ About Acne Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
People have many questions when faced with finding an acne treatment that works. Following are some of the most-asked questions we've seen.

Q: Are all acne treatments the same? How will I know which one is right for me?

A: Although some acne products may promise the same results, each one is different in some form or another. If you want to know how they differ, you can easily look at the ingredients and read the labeling. If you are using prescription acne treatments, ask your physician about potential side effects. Choosing the right acne products can be difficult, but categorizing your skin problem as either mild, moderate or severe will go a long way in helping you choose the right remedy for your condition.

Q: How fast will acne treatments work for me?

A: The answer to this question greatly depends on the severity of your acne and how you have chosen to treat it. There aren't any acne products that offer instant results, but many do provide a gradual improvement. Most acne treatments provide detailed information as to the length of treatment and an estimation of when your skin should begin to improve after proper use.

Q: I have very sensitive skin and am afraid to try new acne treatments. What should I do?

A: If you have sensitive skin, which many people do, consider purchasing acne products that are specifically designed with sensitive skin in mind. You can also try a new treatment by applying a small amount of the product on a test area of your skin. This works well for everyone and not just those with sensitive skin. Once you are certain the product is not causing an irritation, continue applying it as directed. You may also consult with a dermatologist or physician for information relating to sensitive skin care and acne products.

Q: Some acne products are very expensive and I'm not sure that I can afford them without knowing whether or not they will work for me. How can I find a way to pay for the treatments that I need and not risk losing a fortune on ineffective products?

A: When it comes to finding an affordable way to budget for the treatment that you need to return your skin to a healthy state, consider whether or not your health insurance policy covers prescription acne treatments. If they do, simply visit your physician or dermatologist. If you do not have health insurance or your policy does not cover prescribed acne products, consider trying products that offer a money-back guarantee. If the treatments work, they are well worth the money. If they do not provide you with results, you can return them for a full refund.

Q: How can I find out more about acne treatments and which ones have produced results for other acne sufferers?

A: For additional information on acne treatments, product reviews are a terrific way to learn what works and what doesn't. This will give you an idea of how a product works, what it's capable of and whether or not it's worth the money. A detailed review can offer much more information than a promotional advertisement or a product label.
