Why should you treat your Acne?
Acne, no matter how excessive, can cause turmoil both physically and emotionally.
Acne is often regarded as being unsightly and it tends to be annoyingly persistent. Scratching at acne can lead to scarring and the resulting lesions can heal slowly, exposing wounds that are susceptible to germs and infections.
The Cosmetic Laser Institute at Healthpointe can help treat acne quickly and professionally in order to help you avoid any further skin-related distress.
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition caused by a combination of dead skin cells and oils plugging up a body’s pores. Acne can occur anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. It is extremely common amongst teens and tends to be reduced in severity for persons entering adulthood.
Acne is known by many names, including: pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and zits. These are forms of acne and different extents of its inflammation.
Acne occurs most often during the teenage years due to the increased production of oils, known as sebum, in the body. These oils combined with dead skin cells begin to clog the pores of the body and result in acne.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can also cause outbreaks.
While it is widely believed that eating greasy foods and chocolate can lead to acne breakouts, this is yet to be proven.
Available Acne Treatments
Maintaining clean skin and avoiding cosmetic products that block pores can help control acne.
Over the counter lotions can be used to kill bacteria, reduce the amount of oil in the body, and help shed dead skin cells. Side effects include dry skin, flakiness, and skin irritation.
Dermatologist-prescribed treatments function by removing dead skin cells and diminishing excessive bacteria. These are often stronger prescriptions, consisting of products derived from Vitamin A.
Oral antibiotics can also play an important role in reducing acne and inflammation. Combined with medications provided by dermatologists, antibiotics can vastly reduce any signs of acne, leading to clear and healthy skin.
