How Long Does it Take for Acne Treatment to Work?
You most likely want to see your acne treatment work as quickly as possible. However, some methods can take a while to work. A medical-grade skincare routine can take several weeks of consistent use to see results, and most in-office treatments require several sessions for you to see full results. DiamondGlow®, our most effective acne treatment, provides immediate results that steadily improve over time.
How is Acne Treated?
We treat acne with personalized treatment plans that include any combination of treatments needed to give you lasting results. Treatment options include:
Topicals and Medications
You may be able to manage your acne with a targeted medical-grade skincare routine. If at-home treatments do not provide results, your Levy dermatologist can prescribe medications. Oral treatments can have bothersome side effects, so some people prefer to avoid them if possible.
Laser Skin Resurfacing and Microneedling
These in-office treatments can improve acne, but they work especially well for treating acne scars. Both have additional benefits beyond treating acne. However, they are not the most effective acne treatments available.
DiamondGlow® is our preferred acne treatment. This three-in-one treatment exfoliates your skin, extracts material from your pores, and infuses the skin with medical-grade serums. Regular DiamondGlow® treatments keep skin clear, bright, and smooth.
