Acne : Everything you should know about zits

What’s on the outside surely affects an individual in the inside, doesn't it? Most of us have experienced that phase of ‘zits and breakouts’ in our lives.

Acne is a skin condition, common to people of all shapes and sizes, that often affects the individual from the inside. The individual, thus finds it difficult to tackle the crucial events of daily life.
Pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, nodules, cysts and so on are typical of acne. Although one of these lesions would tend to dominate.

Possible causes :

  • Breakouts are initiated by the elevated level of hormones ie. levels of androgens. This prompts the sebaceous glands to produce excess oil. The glands don’t give up on producing oil despite the gland ducts being blocked. This paves way for bacteria to thrive in the gland. Pus, redness, inflammation, itching or pain are how our immune system reacts to this. By the next day, you wake up, voila! you have yourself a pimple on your skin. Breakouts, as a result, are seen mostly on the face, chest, neck and the back of an individual.
  • Adult Acne is a known entity as well due to hormonal issues like PCOD.

Can acne be associated with the phrase “a simple skin disease” ???

We at Mahi Skin Clinic would recommend you to think otherwise. Breakouts can be a serious issue when not treated at the right time. Now we don’t want you to be scarred both externally and internally, do we? Even after acne is cured it can leave behind hideous marks and scars. Pigmentation and scars are a big no-no.

Treatment for acne:

At Mahi Skin Clinic, we undertake the following for the acne removal. The treatment plan is drafted taking into account the severity of the condition.

  • Low-grade acne responds to topicals like antibacterial creams and retinoid-based creams.
  • Severe acne is treated with oral antibiotics, oral retinoids, hormonal medications.
  • Blue light therapy is an adjuvant treatment. It kills the bacteria which causes acne known as Propionibacterium acnes.
  • Chemical peels like salicylic, glycolic, yellow peels also play a major role in controlling acne & the pigmentation. After a number of treatments, the blemishes of the skin begin to disappear, bringing back the natural and normal appearance of the skin. Along with the above, it is important to use the right products including cleanser and sunscreen.
