The best and worst of acne treatment options

While there is a huge demand for non-pharmacological treatment options in acne vulgaris, robust evidence to support their effectiveness and safety is scarce.

Researchers in the Netherlands conducted a systematic review in an attempt to determine which, if any, of the most commonly used non-pharmacological therapies might have the most potential for treating acne.

Use of conventional topical and systemic treatments is not always desirable because of the potential risk of adverse effects, and as acne is one of the most common skin conditions, the widespread use of antibiotics risks driving antimicrobial resistance.

The most commonly used non-pharmacological therapies for acne vulgaris are laser and light-based therapies, chemical peels, microneedling, (micro)dermabrasion and (mechanical) lesion removal, and they are generally used for patients with chronic acne who require long term therapy.

The researchers searched three electronic databases (MEDLINE, Cochrane library, Cinahl) for studies on non-pharmacological therapies for acne vulgaris published between January 2000 and May 2017 and identified 1467. A total of 33 involving 1404 patients met the eligibility criteria to be included in the analysis, all were randomised controlled trials or controlled clinical trials, 10 of which used a control group, placebo or sham treatment. The majority of the studies was executed on participants having mild to moderate acne or inflammatory acne.
