5. Topical Acne Medications

1) Retin-A: 
Topical tretinoin is the active ingredient in Retin-A, a medication that doctors prescribe to clear up acne blemishes and also reduce the appearance of wrinkles that occur with age as it increases collagen production in the skin and tightens pores by unclogging them of excess oil and other dead skin cells (Draelos). The FDA approved the medication in 0.05% strength (Ace Hardware). Topical tretinoin is also available without a prescription, and can be purchased over the counter at most drugstores as well. 

2) Isotretinoin: 
Isotretinoin works by working with your body to naturally reduce the inflammation of cystic acne lesions by causing cells within them to naturally die off (Aiken Skin Clinic). It has been proven to help heal cystic nodules on the face and decrease scarring of an active acne lesion by speeding up cell turnover (Draelos). This medication comes as a pill form that is taken orally, and it must be taken every day. The average length of time that it takes to see a noticeable difference in cystic acne lesions with the use of Isotretinoin is approximately 6 to 8 weeks. It often requires an oral prescription and even though it has been proven to be effective, some people cannot tolerate its side effects. These side effects include a decrease in skin oil (dryness), thinning of the skin and red eyes, increased sensitivity to sunlight, nausea, headache and diarrhea. 

3) Accutane: 
Acne treatment medications using Accutane as an active ingredient work best for patients who are suffering from severe acne, with many inflamed cysts on their face or back. Although it is also used for other skin disorders, Accutane is known as a strong medication for acne treatment. It has been added to the list of drugs which are restricted from being taken by women who are pregnant, nursing or have a history of heart conditions (Draelos). It can be prescribed from your doctor, or you can order it online from your local pharmacy (Aiken Skin Clinic). Accutane must be taken every day for long-term treatment and it must be continued until there is no longer any active acne. The side effects are often severe and include sexual impairment, hair loss and insomnia (Aiken Skin Clinic). 

4) Tazarotene: 
Tazarotene is an effective medication used for the treatment of acne. It is manufactured by DuPont, which has been approved to treat acne by the FDA (Aiken Skin Clinic). Tazarotene works by slowing down the production of hormones that control oil and sebum production. Since it blocks these hormones, this will inhibit the growth and increase the difficulty in formation of new cystic acne lesions. It does not interfere with hormonal balance like isotretinoin, which some people use it as a treatment alternative for (Aiken Skin Clinic). 

5) Oral Antibiotics:

1) A. Retinol: 
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A, and it is the mildest and safest form of topical medication that you can purchase at any drugstore without a prescription (Aiken Skin Clinic). Retinol works by preventing the growth of acne lesions by reducing the amount of sebum on your skin. It also causes old cells to die and new cells to grow. Retinol is recommended for individuals with mild or moderate acne, as it causes no side effects. It also reduces the number of comedones on your face, breaks down blackheads, reduces redness and allows your skin to repair itself naturally (Aiken Skin Clinic). 

2) B. Vitamin B-Complex: 
Vitamin B-complex can be found in many different forms including a pill form that is taken orally or else over the counter. However, since many people are not familiar with them, they may be hesitant to use them. That is why Multipure has formulated an easy to swallow capsule for people to take that can easily be taken orally. Vitamin B-complex comes in pill form and it works by promoting the production of collagen in your skin from the inside out (Aiken Skin Clinic). Collagen is what allows your skin to stay hydrated while also keeping fine lines and wrinkles away from forming (Draelos).

In the conclusion of this article, we have seen that the best form of acne medication (for severe cases) is Accutane. However, if you are not sure if you should be taking medication or if the results from your current treatment are not lasting, then it would be best to ask a doctor for help. 
Some people use topical tretinoin along with Accutane as an alternative to AVC or isotretinoin. 
Remember that choosing between Retin-A and tretinoin will depend on what type of skin you have. 
For some people both can work well and for others Retin-A works better because it causes fewer side effects (Draelos).
