What Does the Academy of Dermatology Say About Acne Treatments?

The American Academy of Dermatology has set recommendations for the treatment of acne. They state that combining two or more treatments tends to be the best therapy for most patients. 

 

Recommended treatments include topicals, antibiotics, isotretinoin (Accutane), and oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). They place a heavy emphasis on pharmaceutical treatment and state that the best initial acne treatment for moderate to severe acne consists of antibiotics plus topicals. For some female patients, oral contraceptive pills may be helpful either on their own or combined with other treatments. These work by increasing the amount of estrogen present to offset excess androgens (which cause acne).

 

Oral isotretinoin (Accutane) is recommended by the AAD for moderate to severe acne unresponsive to other treatments. But Accutane has some severe side effects. It can be irritating to the skin, may cause mood disorders, and carries a high risk of birth defects. The threat to pregnancy is so severe that patients must enroll in the federal iPledge Program and agree to avoid pregnancy while taking the medication. 

 

Some studies also show an association of isotretinoin with inflammatory bowel disease and depression. The AAD states that these studies about inflammatory bowel disease and depression are not conclusive, but also recommends that patients be made aware of the information. 

 

The AAD recommends in-office treatments like lasers and chemical peels, but only on an occasional basis.

 

When it comes to natural remedies like tea tree oil, the AAD states that there is not enough definitive evidence to recommend these treatments. The same holds true for recommending dietary changes for acne patients even though they acknowledge “some evidence” that shows a causative link to dairy products, especially skim milk, and simple carbohydrates (sugar) and acne.

 

The Holistic Acne Treatment – Mind and Body

Acne is more than skin deep. As with all skin disorders, there is a prevalent skin-mind connection with acne. Stress worsens skin conditions, and skin conditions cause more stress. This can be linked to hormone shifts, cortisol, and changes in blood flow. 

 

Acne is also greatly associated with mental health, as it has been known to cause anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation – especially in teenagers.

Overcoming acne requires both physical and mental health solutions. In addition to the right cleansers, treatments, and helpful cosmeceutical products to treat acne, care should also be taken to reduce stress, calm the mind, and boost confidence to treat acne holistically.
