Acne can be a frustrating condition - even for adults - and we have heard similar stories many times from our patients. There is no acne solution that can be guaranteed to work for everyone, but it sounds like you have tried many. Your situation is very common for patients that turn to lasers and/or photodynamic therapy for acne. They have tried many or all traditional acne therapies including multiple medications and over the counter products. Check out lasers and/or PDT as another option for your acne.

In most cases acne does subside after the teen years. However, some people battle it all through their adult years. There are many treatments available including lasers ad light treatments.

If you have done oral antibiotics, topicals and Accutane you may want to consider these newer methods. These are non-invasive painless treatments. You may want to get a new view point for treating your acne.
