Acne is the bane of many people’s existence. For some, it can be an embarrassing blemish that affects their self-esteem and social life. For others, it can cause physical pain and discomfort, as well as emotional stress. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments available to help you get rid of your acne. Keep reading to learn about the four most effective types: chemical peels, facials, retinoids and spot treatments.

Acne spot treatment

Acne spot treatments are a type of over-the-counter medication that can be used to treat pimples and blemishes. They come in the form of creams and gels, which you apply directly to the affected area. If you have persistent acne or your skin is sensitive, it’s best to use an acne spot treatment specifically formulated for sensitive skin.

There are several different types of acne spot treatments on the market today:

  • Benzoyl peroxide (BP) – This ingredient is often found in products that contain salicylic acid or sulfur because BP kills bacteria in addition to drying up oil. It can also help reduce inflammation, which helps treat cystic acne.
  • Salicylic acid – This ingredient helps unclog pores by getting rid of dead cells so they don’t clog pores anymore; salicylic acid also helps prevent whiteheads from turning into blackheads or pustules (they just stay as whiteheads). Some people have allergic reactions when using products containing salicylic acid, so test a small amount somewhere on your face before applying any product with this ingredient all over your face if you’re concerned about developing an allergy!

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are another very effective acne treatment, but they’re not for everyone. These peels remove the top layer of skin and can be used to treat pigmentation, wrinkles, and scarring. They are usually done in a dermatologist’s office under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and aren’t recommended for people with darker skin tones because it may cause redness or irritation on their skin.


Facials are a great way to keep your skin healthy and looking its best! A facial is a skin treatment that uses steam, exfoliation, extractions, and massage to cleanse the skin. This can be done at home or in salon settings like spas. Facial treatments are typically used for those suffering from acne breakouts or oily skin conditions like seborrheic dermatitis or rosacea. Anyone who wants to try something new should consider getting a facial!


Retinoids are the best acne treatment. They’re available in prescription and over-the-counter forms, and can be used to treat acne, wrinkles, and skin discoloration. In fact, retinoids work so well that they’re effective for treating acne in people with light skin.

To get started with using a retinoid at home: You’ll want to start off slowly by applying it every third day or so until your skin adjusts. If you’re using a prescription retinoid, make sure your dermatologist gives you instructions on how long to use it before switching onto another medication (which is often required). Once you find out how long it takes for your body to adjust to each new medication or regimen of treatments—and once the side effects subside—you’ll know just how much time is needed between using each one!

According to dermatologists, the following four treatments are the best options for treating acne.

  • Topical retinoids (a vitamin A derivative) are a great choice for mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne. Retinoids work by reducing sebum production and getting rid of dead skin cells that clog pores, says Dr. Schultz. They can be applied in a cream or gel form and may cause dryness and irritation at first but will eventually become less irritating as your skin adjusts to the treatment over time. If you do experience dryness or redness as side effects from using topical retinoids, these can be treated with moisturizers or calming agents such as aloe vera juice to soothe irritated skin tissue without disrupting the effectiveness of your treatment plan.


The most effective treatment type for your acne is a combination of treatments. You should try to use an acne medication that targets your specific skin type. And then follow up with a chemical peel or facial to help even out the remaining breakouts.
