Acne. It’s a four-letter word most people don’t think about after high school. Whether it is one bright red spot or inflamed skin that is bumpy and raised, no one likes having to deal with acne.
Often occurring in puberty, acne is seen as a teenage skin problem, but as many people know acne isn’t limited to a certain age group. Many adults suffer from the chronic inflammatory skin condition. So, what exactly is it?
To break it down simply, acne is caused when the oil glands produce too much sebum (an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands). This can cause blocked pores and bacteria on the skin, called Propionibacterium, to grow out of control. The result: whiteheads, blackheads, cysts and puss-filled pimples. Both men and women can be affected.
Although acne is typically hormone related, other reasons can be diet, makeup, stress, environment and genes. And although the acne may have stopped, a lot of people are left with scarring from this skin condition.
Thankfully, there are a number of ways that can help treat current breakouts and scarring. At AFYA Skin and Body Clinic, our experts like to address the root cause of the acne. By assessing the skin to determine the grade of acne, we are able to create a comprehensive approach to healing the skin.
From unclogging pores, tightening pores and reducing scar tissue to removing excess oil and killing bacteria, at AFYA we use a combination of effective treatments that leave your skin glowing.
