Acne

Acne
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the US. It comes in many different forms. These blemishes are blackheads, papules, whiteheads, pustules (pimples), cysts, and nodules.

Besides the face and back, it can also appear on the chest, neck, shoulders, and upper arms. During the healing process of acne, permanent scars and dark spots may appear on the skin.

Acne is the clogging of skin pores caused by dead skin cells. The body sheds dead skin cells after they rise to the pore's surface. However, when the body produces a lot of oil, it prevents the skin from drying out. As a result of the oil, dead skin cells stick together inside the pores instead of rising to the surface.

Treatments
Typically, acne starts at puberty and lasts about 5 to 10 years until it finally resolves on its own when we are in our 20s. Some people, however, continue to suffer from acne well into adulthood. All races are equally affected by acne. It is more common in teenage boys than in teenage girls.
In women, acne breakouts are often associated with menstrual cycles, and acne flare-ups are often caused by acne-causing cosmetics or beauty treatments such as hair styling products. Changes in hormone levels can cause acne to develop even in women during menopause.
The inflammation of acne blemishes causes an acne scar. Acne pores swell, and the wall of the pore breaks down. Some acne blemishes are small, and the scars they leave are shallow and heal quickly. Deeper scars are sometimes caused by blemishes spilling into the surrounding tissue.

FAQs

Acne is caused primarily by fluctuating hormones, particularly testosterone, in men. (Women have some testosterone levels.) When teenagers hit puberty, their hormones surge — and acne often follows.
There are many factors to consider, including your age, gender, and the severity of your acne. During your appointment, we will recommend a treatment plan.
You may need a specialist if over-the-counter treatments, such as topical retinoids or products containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, don’t work for you (give them a chance — it can take 4-12 weeks to improve acne). In order to prevent scarring, severe acne needs aggressive treatment.
Acne usually subsides on its own after puberty, but some people continue to suffer from it as adults.
