Acne Skincare Treatment
Acne is perhaps the most common skin trouble anywhere in the world. It affects just about everyone to a degree at some stage of life. It is especially troublesome during the adolescence when the hormones are fluctuating. It needs to be treated since untreated acne can lead to scarring and can also be quite painful.
Stages of Acne
There are three stages of acne that can affect a person.
Mild acne has nothing more than a few bumps and mild pimples mostly on the face. There is nothing severe about the acne but it can be trouble some if not treated.
Moderate acne typically has inflammation and severe redness on the skin.Pimples are fairly big in moderate acne.
In severe acne, the pimples can discharge puss and they can be very painful. If not treated, acne can leave permanent scarring.
Causes of Acne
Acne is caused by clogging of skin pores. This generally happens when the skin is producing too much of sebum which is the natural oil. Dead skin cells get caught in the oil and clog the pores. This is a perfect habitat for acne bacteria to thrive in. if the skin is too dry, excessive oils will be produced by the skin to counter it.
There are numerous treatment options for Acne Scars which are generally divided in to medications (creams and oral drugs) and clinical procedures.
Creams and Medications
Creams are generally the first defense against acne. They generally work by killing the bacteria and unclogging the pores. Retinoids and Antibiotic creams are most commonly used. These are generally effective for mild to moderate acne.
The creams may be used along with oral medications like antibiotics and combined oral contraceptives. The latter work well in young females for countering acne. In rare cases, the doctor may opt for isotretinoin. It works well when no other treatment is working but has severe side effects as well.
clinical procedures 2010There are some very useful clinical procedures that can be brought to use as well.
