It is not caused by a bacteria, thought bacteria has an important role in its development. Acne appears on the skin as congested pores also known as blackheads or whiteheads, tender red bumps known as pimples or zits, pustules and cysts. Acne develops in and around the hair follicles and their oil producing glands called the sebaceous glands. Though, we have gland all over the surface of the body, it happens only the face, chest and back that acne develops. The oil produced by sebaceous glands is called sebum and appears soon after the puberty. Acne usually happens during teenage years but also begins in the twenties or thirties.

What causes acne?

acne_treatment_imgThere is no single factor that causes acne. Acne happens when oil glands attached to the hair follicles are stirred at the time of puberty by elevated levels of male hormones. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates and protects the skin. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates and protects the skin. It is associated with increased oil production in which the skin cells mature and predisposed to clog the follicular openings or pores. The clogged hair follicle gradually enlarges, producing a bump. As it gets bigger, the wall may rupture, allowing substances and normal skin bacteria access into the deeper layers of the skin, ultimately producing inflammation. Inflammation produces a pustule and deeper inflammation results in a pimple, if the oil breaks through to the surface; the result is a “whitehead”. If the oil changes from white to black, the result is “blackhead”. Blackheads do not reflect poor hygiene and are not dirt.

When should you start acne treatment?

Since acne happens to everyone at some point of time, the right time for treatment is when it starts bothering you or when the potential for scarring develops. This can be when severe acne flares suddenly, for mild acne that just won’t go away, or even when a single pimple decides to show up the week before your prom or wedding. The decision is yours.

What can the doctor do for acne?

The goal of treatment is to prevent scarring so that after the condition spontaneously resolves there is no lasting sign of the affliction. Some of the available options are:

  • Laser treatments : in recent years, there has been seen immense success of laser treatments alone or in conjunction with photosensitizing dyes. It is known as that these treatments are safe and can be effectual. Acne laser treatment is best thought of as an addition to conventional therapy, rather than as a substitute. Skin laser treatment in Delhi is offered at affordable prices at Rohit Batra’s skin clinic in Delhi.
  • Chemical peels : When the superficial peels performed by aestheticians or deeper ones performed in the doctor’s office, chemical peels are considered as one of the modest, supportive benefit only, and in general, they do not work as an alternative for regular therapy.
  • Treatment of acne scars : Acne goes away but leaves ugly looking scars, but now several options are available to treat acne scars. These include surgical procedures to elevate deep, depressed acne scars and laser resurfacing to smooth out shallow acne scars. Latest methods of laser resurfacing are less invasive and heal faster than older methods, although results are less complete and they may need to be repeated three or more times.
