Hi Doctor, I had visited a reputed skin specialist clinic 2 years back for my pimples , which were few in number then. They asked me to take the salicylic acid peel treatment, 4 sessions in a gap of a fortnight each. Those 3 months my akin looked great , but after that my breakouts are back and lately increased in number. ive big red marks on both my cheeks and as I m in the HR line , I need to look good while meeting people. kindly advise a long term cure.

Hi Divya,
A pimple prone skin requires a great amount of care. The treatment depends on the severity and type of lesions you are having that is whether there are black heads or white heads, red elevated lesions, pus filled small lesions or nodules with lots of scarring. Use a medicated face wash meant for acne prone skin, get your black heads and white heads extracted. Discuss the option of taking oral and topical anti acne medication meant for acne with your doctor. Peels as such have wonderful effect in acne and if combined with medication, the effects are better and more long lasting. Salicylic acid and Glycolic peels can be considered for the purpose. If there is scarring, again peels, microdermabrasion or micro needling with dermarollers or in extreme cases lasers are an option. Acne requires a lot of skin care even the lesions are completely gone. So take an expert's advise for your concern, you will surely have a good glowing skin
