Problems with Acne Treatment

There are many problems with antibiotics widely used for acne treatment in Japan. One of the problems is resistant bacteria. Antibiotics will sterilize Skin Acne, so temporary acne will be better. However, since bacteria are not completely killed, they will be reborn with tolerance, so the same antibiotics will have no effect.

The doctor change antibiotic which has stronger effectiveness, then the bacteria gets stronger resistant. As a result, multi-drug resistant bacteria are born, and more and more acne becomes untreatable.

On the skin, there are many good bacteria that improve the skin environment, such as S. epidermidis. If those good bacteria are killed by the antibiotics, only the resistant bacteria are proliferate abnormally. That is another problem to use antibiotics for acne.

Today’s mainstream treatment of acne in Japan is from the outside of the body. It means treatments with topical medicine such as Adapalene, Benzoyl peroxide, Tretinoin and Antibiotics. Treatment which is done in cosmetic dermatology is also approaching from the outside of the body such as peeling, laser, LED, PDT (photo-dynamic therapy), and IPL treatment.

These treatments may be effective against already existing pimples, but the effect of suppressing new acne is weak. Once your acne may improve, acne will come back easily.
