All you need to know about Acne
Acne is an inflammatory skin disease that causes pimples and pigmented spots most commonly on the face, neck, chest, upper arms, back, and shoulders. Common types of acne include pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and nodules. Acne usually occurs during puberty but can generally occur at any age. The main causes of acne are bacteria on the skin, rise in androgen levels, excess oil production, and hair follicles being clogged by oil and dead skin cells. Your diet and stress levels also play a major role in acne.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why get Acne Treatment?
Acne is not dangerous but can leave scars on your skin that are difficult to treat and remove. Additionally, acne can seriously affect your mood and self-confidence. It has been recognized as a leading cause of insecurity among teenagers and young adults. If left untreated, it can lead to acne scars that require several treatments to completely heal.
When to see a Dermatologist?
A consultation with a Dermatologist is recommended when the acne is severe and is found on many parts of the body. It is also advisable to get a consultation when you have had acne for decades and there is potential for scarring. Sudden onset of severe acne may indicate an underlying medical condition such as PCOS.
How can it be treated?
Based on the level of acne and your skin type, our certified dermatologists will determine what you need. There are various treatments available at Derma Grace:
- Topical Acne treatments: Creams or Ointments containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid that can be applied to the skin
- Laser Acne Removal: Laser therapy includes a beam of light directed at the skin which destroys the bacteria and triggers the production of clear and smoother skin.
- Chemical peels: A concentrated chemical solution is applied to the skin which is peeled off after a while and helps in removing dead skin cells
Is the treatment painful?
Most treatments are completely painless but patients do experience mild discomfort as treatments do tend to cause irritation as the skin around the acne affected area is already inflamed. This is where the role of skilled Dermatologists comes into play. Our licensed dermatologists understand the treatment requirements and prepare customized treatment plans to tackle acne and ensure effective results.
What precautions do I need to take before the treatment?
Avoid exposure to the sun and also protect the skin from extreme dryness. Avoid taking medicines without proper consultation from our Dermatologist. It is also important to stay hydrated before taking the treatment.
What are some things I should be careful about after the treatment?
Some patients may experience redness and mild irritation in the treated area after the treatment. It is important to have a balanced diet after the treatment and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun as it can irritate the skin. Use a strong sunscreen to protect the skin and essential skin care is necessary for best results and avoid future breakouts.
