While the above pimple care tips work well for most people, the treatment for breakouts still vary from person to person. Dermatologists usually adjust the type of treatment to the underlying cause of the breakout.
If the cause is blackheads, the dermatologist will usually prescribe certain treatment creams to soften the blackheads. This will make the blackheads come off easily and won’t clog the pores.
Pimple care tips on the face can also be combined with certain medical procedures such as blackhead extraction, microdermabrasion procedures, or chemical peels.
It’s not uncommon to get confused as to what skincare product or treatment to choose. After all, there are countless brands in the market. To prevent second-guessing, set an appointment with a dermatologist.
