Thanks for writing in.

Pimples or acne can be caused by harmonal imbalance.

Acne is now very much treatable.

Oral medications like antibiotics /isotretinoin/vitamins are helpful.

Topical creams like antibiotics /benzoy peroxide/ retinoids are also effective.

Certain procedure like cryosurgery/chemical peels/ laser also very effective.

A combination of cryotherapy and salicylic peel works wonder.

IPL laser system is new advance which can decrease acne in short time.

A good dermatologist will be able to provide you with all the above options.

Pls upload your photos so that more accurate advise can be provided.
