How can I improve an acne outbreak caused by Acnexel? (photo)

I just underwent 4 sessions of Acnexel for an acne breakout. However, my skin became much worse with each session. I had an increase in breakouts on my cheek and chin, and a lot more clusters of acne lesions and closed clomedones. I continuously voiced my concerns to the Therapists, but all they replied was that my skin is very congested, and the recovery rate is slow as my skin cells are unable to detoxify quickly. I would like to understand if I was sold an inappropriate treamtment by the Therapists, and how I can improve my skin now that it’s so badly damaged. Thank you very much.

How can I improve an acne outbreak caused by Acnexel? (photo) 5b52abf4293f7c0050973f5d

Personally, my 1st line treatment for an acne outbreak would be:

-  Topicals (Isotretinoin, antibiotics etc)

-  Oral antibiotics

-  Supplemented with machine driven treatments such as lasers (carbon lasers as mentioned) 

I would advise to hold off your remaining Acnexel treatments for now in view of your worsening condition.  It would be best to consult a medical professional in the future in such instances so as to obtain appropriate and evidence-based medical advise. Hope that helps. All the best!
