Acne Treatment in Pune

Acne affects almost 80% of the people between the ages of 11 to 30. Acne is a skin disorder due to the plugging of hair follicles and the resulting inflammation. There are many causes of acne and they include hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, eating habits, stress, and the use of harmful cosmetics.

Acne Pimple

Types of Acne

 Inflammatory Acne  

  • Papules:  Papules are solid bumps that are raised. They are tender. The skin around a papule is usually slightly swollen and red. Papules form when whiteheads or blackheads irritate and damage the skin around them. 
  • Pustules: Pustules are large, tender bumps. They have a pus-filled center with a pink or red base. The pus may be whitish or yellowish and forms due to a build-up of bacterial cells. Pustules are similar to whiteheads in appearance, but they are larger and more inflamed.
  • Nodules: Nodules are a severe form of acne and can be painful. They have no visible center or head and occur when clogged pores damage tissues and cells deep beneath the skin's surface. Nodules may cause dark spots or scarring.
  • Cysts: Cysts form deeper within the skin than nodules and are the most severe type of acne blemish. They are very large, painful, red, or white pus-filled lumps. Cysts can also cause scarring.

 Non-Inflammatory Acne

  • Blackheads: Blackheads are a mild form of acne and are caused due to clogged hair follicles. When the skin over the bump opens and gets exposed to air, it causes it to look black, and blackhead forms.
  • Whiteheads: Whiteheads are also a form of mild acne. Whiteheads are small, round, white bumps on the skin's surface that occur when a pore becomes clogged with sebum, dead skin cells, and debris.

Treatment Methods for Acne

Dermatologists treat all types of acne. They personalize the treatment based on the patient’s skin type & grade of acne. 

There are three broad approaches to Acne Treatment:  

  • Oral antibiotics
  • Topical treatments in the form of creams, lotions, or face washes
  • Medical procedures like chemical peels, lasers, and light therapies

Acne treatments work best when patients support them with lifestyle changes & dietary changes.

Topical medication for acne: 

These act by either reducing the inflammation, promoting skin turnover, or reducing oil production. 

  • Antibiotics & Antibacterials: These act by killing the bacteria on the skin and reducing inflammation. They are usually prescribed along with retinoids. Commonly advised antibiotics include clindamycin and erythromycin.

  • Dapsone: This gel is used in combination with topical retinoids. It has anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.

  • Retinoids: Retinoids are derived from Vitamin A and include compounds like adapalene and tretinoin. They prevent the plugging of hair follicles and are commonly recommended for acne treatment.

Oral Medications

  • Oral antibiotics: For moderate to severe acne, oral antibiotics are given to reduce inflammation and get rid of the bacterial infection. Tetracyclines like minocycline or doxycycline are usually prescribed. These are usually given in combination with topical antibiotics for better results.

  • Oral contraceptives: Combined contraceptives, or those that contain both progestin and estrogen, are usually given for adolescent and adult women. This takes care of the hormonal imbalance. N\However, there can be side effects like breast tenderness, nausea, weight gain, and breakthrough bleeding.

  • Spironolactone: This acts by binding to hormone receptors that reduce oil production.

  • Isotretinoin: This is reserved for people with severe acne. Though very effective, tretinoin is only prescribed if all other medications have failed. It is strictly contraindicated in women who are trying to start a family or pregnant women for the same reason. 

Cortisone injections:

For severe acne, hydrocortisone can be a treatment option. It acts by shrinking the lesion and reducing inflammation.

Medical procedures for Acne:

  • Chemical Peels: Chemicals like salicylic acid are applied to the skin to exfoliate the superficial layers. The concentration of the chemical solution depends on the severity of the acne and the skin type. This is usually done in combination with other treatment methods.

  • Light procedures: Light therapy targets the acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation. The ideal method, the light source, and the dose is decided by the dermatologist. Some light therapies, like the blue-light therapy, can be done using a hand-held device at the comfort of your own home. Possible side-effects include redness, sensitivity to sunlight, and pain.

  • Laser treatment for acne: Photodynamic therapy uses laser or light to treat acne-prone skin, giving long-lasting results. This is used for individuals with severe acne. The cost for acne treatment using lasers in Pune depends on the severity of acne, the skin type, the degree of scarring, and the number of sessions required.

Timeline for Acne & Pimples


Skin types vary from person to person and so does acne. The healing period varies based on the intensity or grade of acne. Higher grade acne takes longer to heal than lower grade acne. Dermatologists assess the skin to understand the root cause of acne and then prescribe personalised treatments accordingly. To prevent the recurrence of acne, it is important to complete the full course of the medication or the number of procedures prescribed by the dermatologist.
