There are different ways to achieve a flawless skin after acne and it needs medical interventions.

​​Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequalae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse.

If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis.

Remember combining treatment modalities help to achieve desired results earlier.

Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
