Acne is a chronic skin disease and for that reason, it requires prolonged treatment to achieve and maintain the wanted results. Patients very often skip or forget to take their medication and/or use too little or too much. These issues regarding long-term treatment are especially true in regard to patients with acne.
Acne patients are often prescribed topical medications as the first-line treatment for acne, topical agents are also associated with lower rates of adherence compared to oral medications. Many of the people who suffer from acne find topical treatment to be unpleasant, messy and time-consuming, thereby reducing adherence to proper application.
“To reach and maintain the wanted results following the treatment and the given instructions is the most important step.”
One of the reasons for the reduced adherence in patients with acne can also be due to the main age group affected by the disease: teenagers. Most people’s acne resolves when they are in their twenties. However, some people with acne will have symptoms that stay with them their entire lives. There are several effective treatment options, but no one “cure” for acne.
In some cases, acne medications should be taken over the long term, as stopping treatment when the acne improves can result in symptoms coming back. In some cases, your doctor may prescribe an initial treatment to get your acne under control, followed by a long-term topical treatment that can help keep it from coming back. To reach and maintain the wanted results following the treatment and the given instructions is the most important step.
Note: Try not to touch your skin. People who squeeze, pinch, or pick their pimples can get scars or dark spots on their skin, which will prolong the treatment even more.
