Acne treatment depends on whether you have a mild, moderate, or severe type of acne.

Sometimes Dr. Rueckl will combine treatments to get the best results and to avoid developing drug-resistant bacteria. Treatment could include lotions or gels you put on blemishes or sometimes entire areas of skin, such as the chest or back (topical medicines). You might also take medicines by mouth (oral medicines).

Mild acne Treatment for mild acne (whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples) may include:

Gentle cleansing with warm water and a mild soap, such as Dove or Cetaphil. Applying benzoyl peroxide (such as Brevoxyl or Triaz). Applying salicylic acid (such as Propa pH or Stridex). If these treatments do not work, you may want to see Dr. Rueckl. He can give you a prescription for stronger lotions or creams. You may try an antibiotic lotion. Or you may try a lotion with medicine that helps to unplug your pores. Moderate to severe acne Sometimes acne needs treatment with stronger medicines or a combination of therapies.

Deeper blemishes, such as nodules and cysts, are more likely to leave scars.

As a result, Dr. Rueckl may give you oral antibiotics sooner to start the healing process. This kind of acne may need a combination of several therapies. Treatment for moderate to severe acne may include: Applying benzoyl peroxide. Draining of large pimples and cysts. Applying prescription antibiotic gels, creams, or lotions. Applying prescription retinoids. Applying azelaic acid. Taking prescription oral antibiotics. Taking prescription oral retinoids (such as isotretinoin).

Treatment for acne scars

There are many procedures to remove acne scars, such as laser resurfacing and dermabrasion. Some scars shrink and fade with time. But if your scars bother you, talk to Dr. Rueckl.

What to think about

Most treatments for acne take time. It often takes 6 to 8 weeks for acne to improve after you start treatment. Some treatments may cause acne to get worse before it gets better. If your acne still hasn’t improved after several tries with other treatment, Dr, Rueckl may recommend that you take an oral retinoid, such as isotretinoin. Doctors prescribe this medicine as a last resort, because it has some rare but serious side effects and it is expensive. Certain low-dose birth control pills may help control acne in women who tend to have flare-ups before menstruation.

I Love This Place!

I love this place. My first step in their office, I was like, whoa! It’s beautiful! I was sent here by the VA for some skin issues and the doctors here are truly amazing. He listens to every single complaint I’ve had without any judgment and is very positive about my treatment plan! Even the nurses and ladies behind the desks were super friendly. I definitely recommend this place!!

 

Does The Best Lips!

Does the best lips! He’s also a really skilled injector. I don’t even think he numbed me, but I barely felt anything. It was nice not to do a dental block. He gave me the exact (natural) look I was going for. Not obviously fake at all but I DID get compliments on my lips from a few of my doctor friends!

 

The Best Doctor Ever!

The best Doctor ever! I’ve been dealing with rosacea for years and he was the only doctor who really help me. Im really glad that i find this amazing person he’s so kind, professional humble

 

I’m so happy with the results!

I have been going to Lakes Dermatology for over a decade now. I recently moved and tried out a few other dermatologists. No where else compared to the results I received here. So I flew all the way back to Vegas just to see Dr. Reukle at Lakes Dermatology. My skin turned out great after the Voluma, fractora, photofacial, and Venus procedures I had done here. I love the skinceuticals products I bought as well. Thank you! I’m so happy with the results!
