Acne

There are many types of acne lesions including blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, and cysts. Acne generally occurs in teenagers and young adults, though it can affect anyone.

Causes:

Though the exact cause of acne has not been determined, research has shown that four key elements contribute to acne. They are: excess oil, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. During adolescence, the body begins to develop more sebum oil, which is produced to ensure our skin does not dry out. When sebum cannot flow freely to the skin, clogged pores result. Bacteria already found on the skin's surface, flourishes in the excess oil, and causes inflammation.

The degree of inflammation determines what type of acne appears on the skin. A little inflammation results in a blackhead or a whitehead. This means oil flow is blocked right at the surface of the skin, If the pore is blocked deeper within the skin, a papule, or puspule, forms. The most severe type of acne lesions are nodules and cysts, which occur when very deep blockage causes intense inflammation. At times they are very painful.

Treatment:

There are many treatment options available for reducing your acne. Because every case is different, and treatment effectiveness depends on your skin's type, talk to Dr. Abha Bhatnagar about finding the right treatment for you. Fortunately, when acne is properly treated, it can restore the confidence and positive self-image that often wane in people afflicted by acne. Some common options include:

  • Topical Retinoids:
  • Topical Antibiotics:
  • Oral Antibiotics:
  • Isoretinoin :
  • Birth Control Pills:
  • Cleansers:

If scarring from acne occurs, some options such as laser, Dermarollers, Microdermabrasion, Peeling may help reduce the appearance of scars. Talk to Dr. Abha Bhatnagar if you are interested in this type of treatment.

Prevention:

Research has proven that heredity, hormones, menstruation and emotional stress can trigger acne, or make it worse. Although many of these factors cannot be avoided, it is recommended that patients not wash or scrub the skin excessively, which can irritate the skin and make acne worse. Diet does not generally contribute to acne. If you have oily hair, frequent shampooing may also help reduce acne.
