Acne and Acne Scarring

Breakouts and pimples always come at the most inopportune times. Before a big event or vacation, they always seem to know when we need a night out and insist on joining us for the ride. Acne is a skin problem that leaves you with open or closed clogged pores, pimples, and cysts on visible areas of your body like your face, upper back, shoulders, and chest. You can develop acne when a pore in your skin becomes clogged and inflamed due to stress. Normally, these are just dead skin cells in your pores, which are pushed to the surface and shed. If your body makes excessive sebum or oil, these dead skin cells can start to clump and stick together in the pore instead of getting pushed out. This excessive replication of bacteria makes the pore go swollen and red from inflammation. You may also develop nodules or cysts if that inflammation runs deep.

How Does Acne and Acne Scarring Develop?

Acne can occur at any time so knowing the root cause for your skin type is important. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy can cause unsolicited breakouts, along with this, using oral contraceptives, family genetics, a poor diet, and certain medicines that contain testosterone, lithium, or corticosteroids can make breakouts worse. Trying to pinpoint exactly what is causing you to break out can be tricky. There are numerous factors that can cause these isolated incidents as well as flare-ups on a larger scale of the body. What will help will be to explore your family history and your eating habits when you come for your consultation with our team. This way, we can provide you with the best information that will help get rid of any current acne, as well as help aid in the prevention of future breakouts.

Spotting Acne and Acne Scarring

Acne has been a longstanding culprit in how we perceive ourselves. It can cause us to want to run away and hide our faces until our breakout clears up. This skin issue can show up in numerous different areas, typically on your face, back, chest, shoulders, neck, upper arms, as well as on buttocks. Here are some possible signs of the problem:

  • Open clogged pores called Blackheads.
  • Closed and clogged pores called Whiteheads.
  • Small red tender bumps called Papules.
  • Pimples or Pustules – these are papules that have pus on their tips.
  • Cysts – pus-filled and painful lumps just below the surface of the skin.
  • Painful large solid bumps beneath the skin’s surface called Nodules.
