maestria tratamiento del acné

Understanding the pathophysiology of acne is key to being able to prescribe the appropriate treatment for each individual patient, given the clinical polymorphism of this disease. Each medication will act on one or more of the pathogenic pillars of acne and, depending on the predominance of retention-related or inflammatory lesions, will be more or less effective.

In addition, in recent years, the active and key role of certain etiological agents that were not previously considered so important has been discovered.

In recent years, discoveries have been made in the inflammatory cascade and in the mediators involved, opening the way to the development of new medicines targeting these inflammatory reactions.

Topical treatments will be the mainstay in many mild cases, and will complement systemic treatments in more severe cases. In addition to the topical medications themselves, it is very important to know which cosmetics are the most suitable for acne-prone skin.

Oral antimicrobials are the mainstay of treatment in many moderate to severe cases in which inflammatory lesions are predominant. As with their topical application, the treatment of acne with oral antibiotics is one of the causes of the increase in the rate of bacterial resistance. For this reason, treatment regimens should be optimized, combining them with other drugs that reduce the risk of resistance and minimizing the duration of the cycles.

Hormonal treatment is very effective in women with acne, especially when there is more evidence of hyperandrogenism. Numerous oral hormonal contraceptives are available, most of them with combinations of two active ingredients. It is necessary to know them, as some will be very beneficial in these patients, but others may significantly worsen their acne.
