There are a few methods by which the occurrence of cyst can be kept under control. Some of the methods are:
• Phototherapy: Exposure to light has been long used as a short-term method of treatment for acne. Phototherapy is generated by fluorescent lighting, lasers, LEDs or dichroic bulbs.
• Surgery: People with serious cystic acne can opt for surgical treatment. This treatment allows the boils to be drained through surgical lancing.
• The use of anti-biotics is another way to keep the growth of acne at bay.
• Some acne control creams and lotions are found to be effective in treating acne and the scars resulted from acne.
