Acne Skin Treatment

Acne can appear anywhere on your body. The most common locations are the face, neck, shoulders, back, and chest.

Although acne does not pose significant risks to your general health, it can be painful, especially if you have severe acne. Over time, acne could also cause scarring that could last for a long time.

Additionally, acne can undoubtedly lead to emotional strain. Acne and acne scars on the face and other prominent body parts can have an impact on confidence and self-esteem, and they can worsen anxiety or signs of depression.

Understanding Acne: Why It Happens

Acne is caused by clogged pores or hair follicles. Your hair is held in place by tiny tubes called hair follicles. There are many glands that discharge into your hair follicles.

A clog develops when your hair follicle is filled with too much matter. The obstruction of your hair follicle by substances caused by clogged pores results in a pimple. This causes inflammation, which you experience as pain and swelling.

Skin discolouration, such as the redness around acne, may also indicate inflammation.

Causes of Acne

Acne could develop when:

  • Too much oil is produced by your follicles.
  • Your pores become clogged with dead skin cells.
  • Bacteria gets accumulated in your pores.

Any of these issues can result in acne breakouts, which form when bacteria develop in a clogged pore and the oil cannot be removed.

Types of Acne

You may see a variety of pimple varieties if you have acne. The most typical acne lesions are blackheads and whiteheads, both referred to as comedones.

  • Blackheads, also known as open comedones, appear at the skin's surface. The darker colour of the pimples' tops is due to oxygen in the air, not dirt.
  • Whiteheads, also known as closed comedones, appear as raised lumps on the skin's surface. They retain their flesh colour.

Scarring of the skin is more likely to occur with inflammatory lesions, which include:

  • Papules: These tiny, raised, red bumps are brought on by infected or irritated hair follicles.
  • Pustules: Pus is present at the tips of these little red bumps.
  • Nodules: These firm, frequently uncomfortable lumps grow below the skin's surface.
  • Cysts: These big bumps under your skin often hurt and are filled with pus.

Hormonal Imbalance and Acne: Understanding The Connection

Clogged pores are the root of acne. When hormonal changes cause your skin to generate more oil, hormonal acne occurs. Acne is a result of the interaction between this oil and the bacteria on your skin's pores where your hair grows.
