Acne is a skin condition caused by clogging of pores or sebaceous glands by excess oils, dead cells and bacteria. Acne results in formation of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts or nodules which if left untreated cause acne scars and can permanently damage the skin.
Today, almost all acne cases can be successfully treated. The key to finding an effective acne treatment is individual approach. Other factors that make acne treatments successful are patience and commitment.
All acne treatments require in-office and case specific anti-acne home regimen. In-office acne treatment includes:
Proper anti-acne home care is crucial to successful acne treatment. It includes daily use of topical acne creams, lotions and gels which include such acne prevention ingredients as glycolic or salicylic acid, Vitamin A and benzoyl peroxide.
Acne affects people of all ages. Though acne is predominantly seen with teenagers it also affects adults (adult acne). Even less severe acne can cause permanent acne scaring. To avoid and prevent acne related skin damage early acne treatment and prevention by a specialist is crucial.
Acne is caused by hormonal changes which result in skin starting to produce excess oils. Excess oils combined with dead skin cells and acne bacteria cause skin condition called acne vulgaris or acne. Acne can run in a family. If one of your parents had bad acne, you are more likely to have it. Acne is not caused by dirt or eating too much chocolate, however acne can be significantly worsened by wrong skin care regimen and using skin products that clog pores.
Acne scars are treated by a variety of different methods. Skin resurfacing with laser, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or injections with soft-tissue fillers can all make noticeable differences in appearance of your acne scars. However, acne management is very important to prevent acne scars in the future.
