Acne treatment

Acne is a skin condition affecting millions worldwide, causing physical discomfort and emotional distress. Rest assured that you’re not alone if you’re struggling with acne. Read on to learn about the types of acne, treatment options, and where you can find expert acne scar treatment in Dubai. 

Cystic acne causes deep, pus-filled pimples and nodules, often resulting in scars. Fungal acne, or pityrosporum folliculitis, occurs when yeast accumulates in hair follicles, leading to itchy and inflamed symptoms. Nodular acne is a severe type of acne that is characterized by pimples on the skin’s surface and tender nodular lumps beneath the skin. Hormonal acne affects adults with excessive sebum production, leading to clogged pores.

Excess Sebum Production: Sebum is the oily substance created by the sebaceous glands in the skin. During adolescence, hormonal changes can lead to increased sebum production. The excess sebum can mix with dead skin cells and block hair follicles, leading to the formation of acne. Clogged Pores: When the hair follicles get clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, it creates an environment where bacteria can thrive. The clogged pores are comedones, which can be open (blackheads) or closed (whiteheads). Bacterial Infection: Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is a normal resident on the skin’s surface. However, when trapped within the clogged pores, they can multiply rapidly, leading to inflammation and the formation of pimples. Hormonal Factors: Hormonal fluctuations, especially during puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, or while taking hormonal medications, can trigger or worsen acne. Androgens, the male hormones in both sexes, significantly increase sebum production. Inflammation: When the bacteria P. acnes proliferate within the clogged hair follicles, the body’s immune response is triggered, leading to inflammation. Inflamed pimples are often red, swollen, and painful. Genetics: There is evidence to suggest that genetics can play a role in the development of acne. If your parents or close family members have acne, you may also have an increased risk of experiencing it. Certain Medications: Medications like corticosteroids, androgens, or lithium, can contribute to acne development. Environmental Factors: Exposure to certain environmental pollutants and irritants can worsen acne for some individuals.

These facials can be customized to target acne-prone skin, helping to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and control excessive oil production. Chemical Peels: Chemical peel is an effective treatment for acne that involves the application of a specialized solution to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin.
