Abstract

Though acne is not generally cured, treatment can reduce the severity and frequency of outbreaks, lessen discomfort from inflamed lesions, improve appearance, and prevent or minimize scarring, thereby averting or ameliorating potentially serious adverse psychosocial effects. A number of new agents are available; combination therapies that achieve synergism are described.
