Reduce Acne and Help Avoid Breakouts With a Customized Plan.
Because there are many different causes of acne, the key to successful treatment is a personalized treatment plan that focuses on your unique skin type and the underlying cause of your acne.
Acne is an extremely common condition in men and women of all ages, from teens and young adults to middle age patients. It can take many different forms including blackheads or whiteheads, pimples and pustules, or scaly red areas, all varying in size, shape, number and concentration. Acne may appear in outbreaks of differing severity for different lengths of time. Scarring may result from acne. Although hormones are often somewhat responsible, as with adolescents, levels of stress and certain bacteria as well as the consumption of certain foods also may play a role. There are also genetic factors at work. Acne is a clogged pore or hair follicle that can appear anywhere on the skin from the face and back to shoulders, chest, and even arms. Pores can become clogged with a number of things including sweat, dirt, dead skin, and sebum. Oil glands produce sebum to keep our skin from drying out. Sometimes the oil glands go into over drive and produce excess sebum. The rate of sebum production is controlled by hormones, so issues often arise during times of hormonal fluctuations. Dead skin cells are usually naturally sloughed off but, sometimes they stick together and become trapped in the pore. When bacteria enters the clogged pore the result is a pimple or acne cyst.
