Top Searched Acne Treatments

Posted Nov 28 2010 12:00pm

Top Searched Acne Treatments on AOL Search1. Proactiv
2. Differin
3. Tazorac
4. Benzaclin
5. Retin-A
6. Phisoderm
7. Minocin
8. Vibramycin
9. Zenmed
10. Triaz

“Top Searched” doesn’t mean “best.” Acne needs an individual approach in many patients. Proactiv works well in some patients, but can be over used. For those with sensitive skin, over use can actually make the acne worse.

Retin A works quite well too at the right dose and it went generic recently. Too much or too strong can again make the acne worse with sensitive skin. Low strength generic Retin A will run you 1/3 the $$$$$ and works very well even when used just a few times a week. Don’t use it when you anticipate a good deal of sun exposure in the next day or two as it can make your skin sensitive to sunlight.

Minocin and Vibramycin are antibiotics. Being on them for a long period of time is controversial particularity for the ladies.

Best Regards,
