Acne are one of the most uncomfortable skin conditions, especially with young people during puberty. However, they are not constricted only to this age group. Adults come across this issue as well. Acne and acne scars can be very disturbing at any age. They can influence confidence, mood and overall quality of life. Timely acne treatment lowers the risk of scars, which can be equally uncomfortable.
The term acne is a name for clogged pores with black and white top, pimples and cists that can appear on the skin.
There are numerous reasons causing acne, starting from makeup that clogs pores, stress and hormonal imbalance. In most cases, acnes are formed during puberty or mature years, stimulate sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. These secretions stay clogged in the glands, and the skin becomes more greasy and prone to producing microorganisms. Bacterium flora from the skin’s surface, especially Propionibacterium acnes, populates the clogged sebaceous gland and induces an inflammation that we recognize as pimples. The bacteria number that develop is proportional to the amount of sebum, and the goal of the therapy is to reduce the number of bacteria and lower the sebum secretion.
The treatment plan is made individually for each patient, after the examination. The first step is usually medical hygienic treatment and the latest protocol of acne laser treatment. At times our choice is Pixel RF – applying micro plasma. Quick improvement is achieved by using suitable home skin care and therapy products.
