Many over-the-counter (non-prescription) liquid and cream acne cures are available. Theses bottled acne cures and treatments are the easiest to find, buy, and use. Generally these acne cures are applied directly to the acne pimples. Some of these acne cures contain Vitamin E, which is known to boost skin strength and resistance.

Acne Cure Pills

Some acne cures are available in pill form. Although acne pills are generally approved by doctors, there may be unwanted side effects. They may also trigger allergies.

Consult your doctor before taking any acne cure internally. Learn what the risks and benefits are so that you can take them safely.

Laser Treatment Acne Cures

Frequent and severe acne breakouts can be fought with laser treatments. Soft pulsing laser light destroys the acne inflammations. Note that there is the possibility of acne scarring with laser treatments. However, red laser light stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an insoluble fibrous protein that would make any incidental scars less visible.

Recently, home laser acne treatment kits have become available. This makes laser treatment more accessible and affordable to the average person.
