What causes acne?

Acne is the most common skin disease and is prevalent in adolescents.
However, acne can also affect people in their thirties, forties, and fifties.

Adolescent Acne

Adolescent acne is caused by over production of sebum in the sebaceous glands as a result of hormonal changes that occur during puberty. Therefore, adolescent acne most commonly appears on the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) where sebum production is excessive.

Adult Acne

In adults, acne can develop as a result of a change in hormone balance.
These hormonal changes can be induced by stress, unbalanced life style
(poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and insufficient sleep), and living
environment (UV exposure, high humidity, and air pollution). All of these factors reduce the skin’s natural rate of regeneration and dead skin cells mix with sebum to clog the skin pores.
Adult acne commonly appears on U-zone(cheeks, chin, and around the mouth) where skin tends to be dry.

How does acne develop?

As sebum production is accelerated, your skin’s turnover (shedding of the dead skin cells) becomes irregular, and hair follicles get clogged with oil and dead skin cells. .

Acne begins to develop when the clogged follicles become inflamed due to bacterial infection (Propionibacterium acne).

Acne that exhibits redness, inflammation, or suppuration requires topical and oral medication, and can easily develop into scar tissue if not treated in due course.

Stages of acne development

1.Hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.

2.Sebum (excess oil) is trapped in the follicle and begins to form comedo.

3.Bacteria on the skin surface invades clogged pores causing redness, inflammation, and suppuration.

4.Acne erupts

Treatment for acne

Depending on your acne condition, the following treatments (or combination of treatments) are effect
Oral and Topical medication

・Peeling helps to improve acne condition and reveals fresh and healthy skin by cleansing clogged pores and removing trapped dead skin cells and excess oil.
・Topical and oral antibiotic medication helps to reduce inflammation, redness, and infection.
・Photofacial and V-beam laser treatment uses heat energy to destroy the acne-causing bacteria, and in the process reduces redness and inflammation.






Acne on the Back

As summer temperatures increase, sebum (oil) production in hair follicles is increased. And acne begins to appear where sebaceous glands are most active – on the middle of the back and upper-middle chest.
To prevent further development of acne and scarring, proper treatment is required. Salicylic Acid Peeling (BHA) is affective at treating body acne.
