Severe acne can be incredibly difficult to live with, affecting your self-confidence and self-esteem. There are many different products and treatments which claim to treat acne, but not all are effective. Spending time and money trying these treatments and having them make no difference at all to your acne can be devastating, leaving you feeling desperate to find another solution.

Rather than wasting your money on ‘miracle’ products that don’t do a thing, consider trying these treatments which are known to be far more effective:

Active acne laser treatment. This is one of the quickest and most effective ways to clear up serious acne. Although you may need to attend a number of sessions, the results can be quite impressive. The way this treatment works is by using a laser to destroy acne bacteria and to boost collagen levels, which can speed up the natural healing and repair of the skin.

GP-prescribed medication. After a consultation with your doctor, you may be put on a course of medication which can clear up your acne. Different medications are more effective on some people than others, so you may have to try a few different ones before finding the most effective for you. If none work, you may be recommended to try laser treatment.
